Ok here is one for you guys....
All I remember are these kids in school, who drove their teacher away....decided that they liked him after all and then used a lot of fx to get rid of the replacement teacher... A scene I remember is the guy chopped in half on his bed, a girl with a ruler in her mouth or throat,and a ending scene on a beach...I think.

This is a duplicate of my post in another area of the forum, but i really cant find the answer myself!

I cant for the life of me remember the name of a film. Its possible it was a 90's film, but I very much doubt it, i think it was mid to late 80's. Basically, its a similar setup to Tales from the crypt/CreepShow/Bodybags, that is to say, a Horror triptych, woven together by a background mini story or narrator, and with large dollops of black humour. I'll be honest and say I dont remember two of the stories, but one has stayed in my mind forever. Its basic the story of a kid who is a bit of an outcast, but only because he is thoroughly obnoxious, and his hobby is pulling the wings off flies, and making macabre dioramas with them, including a church scene, complete with a crucified fly and parishioners! He also gives a girl at school a cookie, the "chips" turning out to be flies..... As I said an obnoxious little swine, who clearly has it coming to him. things now get a little hazy for me, and i dont remember whether its magic, chemicals or what, but some of the flies hes been keeping grow huge, and in revenge for what hes been doing, pull his arms off, and at the end, the last shot of him is with prosthetic arms with little hooks on! Id love to know what this filw was, so if anyone can help, let me know!

Thanks thats brilliant! Ive been up the wall for ages trying to remember that!. 1991 though! I could have sworn it was earlier, especially as it has a very 80's feel to it as I remember! thanks very much though!

ok here is a tough one, all I remember is that it is a martial arts movie with really good fight scenes, the two main characters are brothers I don't remember what they are fighting for but the main bad guy is blonde and a much better fighter then either one of the two brothers, the first shot of the bad guy is of him sitting and throwing a knife or a ninja star at a target and hitting the bulls eye. the bad guy has a band of guys dressed in ninja suites, i think this movie is the third one in a series because on the cover it said something like "first it was for their country, then????, now its personal" closer to the end of the movie the two brothers are fighting the main bad guy at the same time and the bad guy is handling them fairly well, I think they are fighing on some sort of scaffolding at the end. at one point the bad guy has a knife come out the toe of his boot, but he gets that caught in the wall then one of the bothers kicks his leg and breaks the knife off. I hope I don't have several movies mixed together here.

Its No Retreat, No Surrender 3: Blood Brothers. A slur on the name of the fantastic original.

"The first was for honour, The second for his country, This time... it's family!"

Check it out here... IMDB: No Retreat No Surrender 3

BUT, unless they've changed it, the music on the original NRNS is different to the Paul Gilreath music we had on the old VHS versions here in the UK... [Frown]

True. But if he wants NRNS 3 this is probably the best way to get it. To me the change in music isn't that big a deal.

Summer School got you addicted? I find that amazing, since their are so many other classic comedies from that era that are even better, though S.S. is still great. "Weird Science", "My Chauffeur", "Modern Girls", "The Secret Of My Success", "Ruthless People", "Trading Places", "Beverly Hills Cop 1 & 2", "The Breakfast Club", "Sixteen Candles", "Valley Girl", "Pretty In Pink", etc.

Hi, I'm pretty sure the movie you are looking for is:

Fortress (1986)
