Help! What's The Name of That Film?

With such knowledgeable folk on the site I thought a list topic helping others remember the names of long forgotten films might be of some use.

If you are trying to remember a name of a film you watched 40 years ago or only 40 minutes ago then ask in here and let the Letterboxd community help you.

If somebody does solve your problem can you please confirm they have the correct film so I can add it to the list.

  • I can barely remember this movie, but I think it's early 90s. It's about a girl who finds a secret room under her stairs and it takes her to a magic kingdom. I know the movie starts with her getting free ice cream from an ice cream van, and she may be a princess in this world or find a prince. It's vague but I know my sister loved it.

  • I'm looking for this movie from either the 80's or early 90's. The movie is about two kids who end up living with their grandfather for some reason. Their grandfather was very mean and I believe he tried to kill them by poisoning their milk. I can't remember much but I think their mother was a seamstress. I don't know why they ended up living with their grandfather. I also remember the kids running out of the house and I think they were on a beach or something. I hope someone can help me figure this one out because my sister and I loved this movie as a kid. Wish I could remember more than the grandfather being evil.

  • I watched this TV movie last year and I started thinking about it again but I have no idea what its called. I know every detail about the movie.Its about a blonde girl who gets killed after going to a party. At the beginning of the movie we know she is walking home after the party and she stops to talk to a guy in a truck, who happens to work for her parents bakery. After that it shows her body somewhere and the small town is shocked by the death. Everyone thinks she is a good girl but her best friend actually has a video of her doing a strip tease for some mystery boy who she said she was talking online to. The town thinks the killer is the guy who works at the bakery so some of the adults band together and want to kill/beat him till he admits it but the cops stop them. In the end they show her having sex with some guy in a little boathouse or cabin, something like that, and her guy friend sees and he is very jealous because he likes her. I think the guy friend killed her but did it by accident.

  • I watched a movie long time ago and since then I'am looking for it, I know the story but I don't know the name so can you please help me.
    It's a bout a boy in school (may be high school) he help 2 girls defeat evil. The girls give him super powers like a power ranger by each putting a hand on his shoulders then he transform and at the end of the movie he wins and the 2 girls go to his school as new students and sit with him and I think they give him a kiss on the cheek, I don't really remember if the girls was aliens or from a different reality. So I really appreciate if someone could help me.

  • There is a movie I saw a few years ago and I just can't think of the name. These girls (I think 4 of them) and one of the girl's older brother go camping. It seemed like they may have been girl scouts. Anyway, the girl with the brother has some trauma about heights and someone in her family dying. Anyway, the brother ends up dead and the girls have to find a way out of the wilderness. The sister insists on bringing the body with them. I think only the sister gets out. I am really looking for this movie. Please help.

  • I can barely remember the movie, but there is this guy in prison and he's like hanging under the top part of the bunk bed in the cell and he makes like this suit of metal and escape prison by hanging under this truck.

  • If i remember correctly this movie may of came on disney but i could be wrong. It starts off with a family out in the woods i believe then the mom disappears. After awhile the father decides to move on from the disappearance of his wife and meets a women. The son becomes suspicious of her and finds out she's some sort of creature or monster. Then i believe he uses huge speakers to make some kind of noise that the creature cant handle and exposes her. At the end the mom that disappears is reunited with her family. If anyone could help I'd be so grateful

  • saw a film about a boy that was sick amd his parents kept him isolated until a young girl moved in next door and made friends ...then she discovered another boy sick in the basement..the mother was a doctor and the boy upstairs turned out not to be her son but an organ donor for the boy in the basement that was really her son....cant remember the name for the life of me
