    Trying to identify a short film I saw on Channel 4 in the late 90s . Think it was set in Manchester or North Of England. Drunk lad is out with his friends and decides to go for a curry by himself (I remember the line "I'm ****ting starving). He goes to an Indian restaurant and because he hasent enough money he asks a guy if he can eat yer mans half finished meal. Yer man agrees and when the main guy finishes it yer man stands up and you can see hes got curry all down his shirt , he them says "I've already eaten it once". Then yer man gets sick and it ends. The implication is that hes eating a curry that the other guy already ate and then regurgitated.

    I think it was in a tv series i saw many years ago. There is a toxin in a tube and the tube is left in a stream. Often during the episode it shows the tube in the stream


    I was sure it was Hawaii Five 0, Three Dead Cows at Makapu but there is not a scene of the tube in the stream in that

    Toxins and test tubes make me think of Heroes, but I don't remember a stream.

    Can somebody help put me out of my misery here?

    I read a review last night of a film title I'd seen somewhere, thinking I'd take a look at it again tonight. Now I can't find any reference to it?

    I think its a new film (I might have seen the name in a list of torrents and looked it up or it might have been on Prime?) and its the story of a girl who is bullied at school and then gets her revenge when she becomes a werewolf (I'm easily pleased). There again she might become a vampire I've just looked up so many films trying to find it I'm not really sure anymore.

    Wake me up when it's all over.

    Funnily enough I remember the film I'm looking for led me on to look up Ginger Snaps. So Ginger Snaps maybe the same genre? I was hoping my imdb history would show up something but I've looked up so many films since its dropped off the list. Just realised I must have a link somewhere in my internet history?

    Edit - Was the only film I looked up in Rotten Tomatoes so was easy to find when I remembered that. It must have been a torrent as its only been released a week. I am Lisa - I originally looked it up thinking it might be something to do with the Simpsons LOL. Anyway the Rotten Tomato score seems a bit of scam at 88% particularly as imdb is showing 3.8 so I might give it a miss.

    Was just about to suggest "I am Lisa". I thought the trailer made it look like it might deliver some Halloween fun, but 3.8 suggests an absolute stinker. Think I'll avoid.

    Ginger Snaps is similar genre story... but much better reviews!

    Not weird at all, I looked for a film with a similar theme that I saw some Sunday afternoon in the 1980s. The one I was thinking of was https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blue_Bird_(1940_film) There is a long scene of "people waiting to be born".
    Maybe its the same one?

    Here’s one that i only remember from an odd image. I think it was a samurai film i saw as a child in the 80s- an old man is approached by warriors on horseback, who drape a large flag or tapestry over him, then proceed to trample him. Might be kurosawa? I don’t know

    Horror movie from the 70's. Similar to the Omen or Exorcist I think (as in strange goings on that cause bad things to happen). The scene I remember is in maybe the desert? Maybe an archaeological dig? Guy falls from a cliff and gets a rope wrapped round his neck. I remember a really loud crack when the rope/cable tightens. Scared the bejaysus out of me as a kid. Would like to see it again.

    thought it was The Mummy (not the Brendan Fraser one), but don't think that's it

    thanks.

    Rather than being Universals mummy could it be one of the Hammer House of Horror mummy films?

    I don't think so, I checked the 1959 version as well, no dice. I think they might be a little before it's time. The hanging scene I mentioned was very graphic, reminded me of the hanging scene at the start of The Omen, so I doubt anything pre 1970 would've had it. Thanks though. I may be off with The Mummy reference, it's just what was in my head.

    a family moves into a haunted house, that has poltergeist activity. I remember 2 scenes vividly, the church not believing the family sends a priest to live with them for a week, but nothing happens whilst the priest is there and he leaves.

    The family decide to go away for a weekend picnic and bring an oil lamp with them that was in the basement. Somehow the poltergeist travels with them via the lamp; possession somehow.

    I think it is based on a True Story (if you believe this sort of thing). I am a horror fan and as such have seen many a horror film, but cannot place this movie.

    Just to add, saw this in the 80's on TV.

    Never seen the above, but there's a lamp and a priest living with the family.

    Or maybe this?

    Could it be "the entity"?

    I don't recall a picnic scene, but it is based on a true story and was in the 80s

    I have seen the Amityville collection, though there is a possessed lamp, it's not the film.

    The lamp in question is a small oil lamp that the family brings to the picnic and lights so the parents can stay out late chatting.

    Its not the second either, But thanks.

    Another horror movie.70's/80's. Think it was on the deadly earnest horror show on Sky
    A couple buy a house and discover a blocked up fireplace in the basement, they open it and it's empty. I think it might be covered with a square metal plate with bolts in it.
    That night we see the bolts being unscrewed form the inside.
    There is a devil/dragon statue in the house.
    There's is a weird jar of slime in one of the cupboards.
    The wife sends the husband a home movie of herself singing/dancing on the outdoor porch while he is away working. He stops it and sees a black shadow in the window of the house with glowing eyes.
    I don't think it is 'Don't be afraid of the Dark' as I don't think there were little demons in it, but a similar premise

    This was The Awakening (1980) by the way

    Possibly Something Evil (directed by a young Spielberg)?
