Lost and Found - forgotten movies, books, TV shows, etc.
« on: October 15, 2014, 03:38:35 AM »
Since we have the new boards, I thought I'd dust off this thread.  Whoever is the mod these days may want to sticky this.  Here, we talk about movies and stuff that we've forgotten or only caught a glimpse of, in hopes of finding them.

So I never actually saw thwe movie I'm thiking of but I remember seeing the box cover as a kid.  It had the painting ''The Nightmare'' on it, or possibly a photo representation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nightmare.  Really creeped me out as a kid.

I remember the back of the box had black and white stills, so it could have been a B&W flick or possibly had colorless pictures on the back for some reason.  I just remember seeing a goblin-like guy. looking back, he might've looked similar to Orlock from Nosferatu (but it wasn't Nosferatu).  The movie would have to be made in the early-mid eighties at the latest, but could have been made much earlier.

Give answers if you think you know what this could have been or try to find some stuff of your own.

I can't say I know what your thing was.

I have wondered, and this is the type of question HJ would know the answer to, is about this movie I saw long, long ago as a wee child.

There was a group of people trying to accomplish some mission.  Mid evil style shit.  One guy had a weapon like Blade's chakram, that not only was bladed, but it either shot fire or blocked fire.  I forget.  They were also traveling with an old man or something that turned bad and like had black eyes or some shit, I don't remember.

Typing random shit into google, I think the movie might have been 1983's "Krull"


Also, who remembers Little Nemo: The Dream Master?

I was thinking about Krull from your description.

And yes, I remember Nemo.

Fondly remember:

- Lost Cities of Gold is one I think I'm accurately remembering the name of and remember fondly. It had a big flying bird shaped plane, and three kids running around in some place south of the equator.

Then there were some that terrified me, I might not want to remember these, but here they are, both are claymation:

- One focuses on Mark Twain, and these kids, again all claymation. The Devil is there and he creates life and destroys it viciously. And they showed this shit to children!

- The other is about these aliens maybe? I don't even know. They look kind of like clowns. They go to a kids house and I think there were only two of them. Claymation again. The stuff of nightmares.

The clown one sounds like Killer Klowns from Outer Space, but it wasn't claymation.

My movie might be Gothic by Ken Russel.  Looking into it.

Yeah, I know that one well. The one I'm thinking of may not even be clowns per say, but they had something of a clown quality to them, and they talked, and there were not an army of them but only two. Also, they may or may not have been aliens. It's not a lot to go on. The biggest clue is it is claymation and is 20+ years old.

I remember the Mark Twain one. was called the Adventures of Mark Twain. Really highlighted what a great writer the guy was

The clown one seems familar but I can't place it.


The one where people shrink down sounds like it may be one of the Dot movies, but after thinking about the eyepatched dude I think that may be the Fantastic Voyage animated series

How do you make a series out of that?

"I've been shot!"
"BRING OUT THE SUBMARINE!"
"No man, I need surgery!"

also there were other things they dealt with. Pretty sure they had to inhibit the growth of these crystals at a sub-atomic level once.

There was this other movie I remember but not the name, of course.

It involved a guy who found the body of an old man in a freezer.  The long, close to the ground style freezers.  It was in the basement of his house or something.  Anyway, he found that he could communicate with the frozen guy by recording him with a recorder or some shit.  I also think at some  point people from like, another dimension, killed the man by using (fuck I don't know what its called, its basically an arrow that moves back and forth, sort of a rhythmic hypnotizing device for sleep) to impale him with.  Oh, and at some point the man was obsessively recording and spending time with the frozen guy in the basement, so she shot the frozen guy a bunch of times to shut him up.

That would be it.  I had one in Animal Crossing, but forgot what it was called.

That was it.  You are a good man.  My childhood memories are slowly being pieced back together thanks to you guys.

I knew Poe was somehow involved, I just wasn't sure.
