That Movie I Can't Think Of




This is driving me nuts! I need to know what this movie was called!!!

I was really little and I don't know if it was a "movie" or a movie that was aired on TV. I don't think it had any big names and I only remember the mother, her son and this man that I'm not sure actually belonged there.

I'm only seriously thinking about this because I read the synopsis for Labour Day and it reminded me of the movie.

This is maybe a bit of drama, some crime? I can't think of what it's actually classed as. Anyways.

I recall this man in the movie having a gun and he didn't really want the mom or son talking and I recall a scene where the mom was writing things down on paper and I think this man had their house bugged because the scene would shift to show him listening to tapes and I think he found the silence odd and he knew they were up to something.

I don't remember a whole lot else except that I know the mom killed this man in the end and that's how they were finally free of him. I don't know why he would have them under surveillance. I'm not sure why they, or at least the mom, felt so threatened by him. I just remember she shot him and more than once cause he just didn't want to die.

This movie was definietly before the 2000's and I think it was around when The Challengers was around. The Challengers is from 1991. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097038/

If anyone has ANY idea what this is PLEASE HELP! I want to see this movie again! I want to know what it was I actually watched!!!

Could it be "The Shining"? With Jack Nicholson?

I know it's not that one. I don't think it has any big actors like that and I'd remember that freaky face Razz

You're right. The Shining probably stands out a million miles. And it is an eighties movie.

we don't have a lot to go on so this will be hard Very Happy

so far we have:
- Man with gun
- Mother and son
- bugged house
- man watching tape
- man dies in the end

this would give you over a thousand of possible movies Crying or Very sad

do you remember any of the actors? maybe you've seen one of the actors in another movie

is it this one? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097503/

I barely remember the faces. I think the mom had brown hair but I don't know if it was a little wavy/curly or if it was straight. The man I think had short brown hair and, at the time, it was the style to spike it up at the front a little. This is frustrating! I don't know of a better way to try and find this!

Well I posed one of the scenes I remember clearly from the movie to IMDb and I haven't had a response yet in 7 hours. Someone must have seen this as well! It's going to drive me nuts and the only other person that might recall this movie is my mom. Some day!!!!

None of them rang a bell Sad BUT! I did find one I had watched ages ago - Cape Fear! So I'm getting that now and I'm excited to see that one Very Happy I think that was one I watched on a Friday or Saturday night as part of the late night TVO movie thing they did.

Cape Fear is a good one. Haven't seen it in ages.
