What's That Movie?

Updated on April 13, 2018

With a library of at least a thousand movies, I am a certified movie geek!

What Was That Movie Called?

"What's that movie with that guy that did that thing with that one girl? Oh, and it was set in high school back in the 80s?"

Have you ever asked someone a similar question? Well, instead of languishing in agony, there are many different steps you can take to help you figure out what that movie is. I have outlined a few here in this article.

I have found that these steps are the most helpful:

  1. Think about the plot of the movie: What happens and what do the characters do? Is there anything important that sticks out in your mind? Something that separates the movie from others and makes it unique.
  2. Think about the setting: What period was the movie in? What cultural allusions did the film make? Did the movie reference any historical moment or any other film of note?
  3. Think about the music: Was any popular song used in the movie? It's very straightforward to look up things like that online, so even if it's only one song, you still have something to search with.
  4. Think about the actors: Who was in the movie? Anyone whose name you can remember? Perhaps you can only remember a character's name, that's still a big clue that can aid in your search.

How to Search Google When You Don't Know the Name of the Movie?

Sometimes all you need to find the movie is a well-formulated search query on Google. Try to type in keywords and concepts unique to the movie. The great thing about the internet now is that there are so many writers out there compiling movie lists that it makes it much easier to find obscure movies that you have forgotten the title of.

I recently watched the movie Waking Life, a film about lucid dreaming, so I tried searching for it on Google without entering the title, and I was pleased with how quickly I was able to find it.

You'll notice that the movie I was searching for, Waking Life, came up near the top of the first search page.

What Was the Name of That Movie?

If you have not had any luck using Google, there are other ways to search the internet to find what you are looking for.

There is a new site called What Is My Movie? which uses an AI algorithm to give you similar movies just by typing in a search phrase. The AI is the most accurate when searching for a title as it will tend to bring up movies with the search terms in their titles. Keep that in mind when using the search program as you can get some wonky results if you do not search using the correct keywords. It will take some trial and error to figure out the right search terms, but after that, the AI works quite well.

Tips for Your Movie Search

If you decide to search other places online for your movie, IMDb.com is a great database to use. There are lots of ways to search on this site: by title, actor, plot, or keywords. The latter two are the best if you have that pesky unknown movie in your head. It may take some time and patience, but you will find the movie most of the time.

Also, click on the search engine's "Search Tools" or "Advanced Search" button. There you can use filters to narrow down your search. The site is also great for finding technical information on the entire crew of any given movie. So even remembering the name of a minor actor that does not have a Wikipedia page can help you find the movie on IMDb.

What Does IMDb Mean?

It an acronym for Internet Movie Database!

Famous Songs Used in Movies

If you can figure out a certain song from the film, Wikipedia or allmusic.com can be useful sources for finding out what movies have used the piece. For most famous songs Wikipedia contains a wealth of information about when the song was used in other media. AllMusic is good for finding technical information such as the soundtrack that a certain song has appeared on, which can help you immensely. Even a song that may not be popular enough to have a Wikipedia page will most likely have a page on AllMusic listing the albums it has appeared on.

A look at a typical Wikipedia page for a song, in this case "Neat Neat Neat" by The Damned. You can see that this song was featured in the movie Baby Driver.

        Hi @Tommie Lou

        No it wasn’t the Narnia movies as they came out when I was much older. I’ve read all the books and this wasn’t one of those stories.

        @Cat74 That movie came out when I was 28, and the one I watched was when I was a child in the 80’s. So definitely too recent for it to be that.

        Thanks for the suggestions though guys :)

        @Jasmine This is a long shot, so I didn't answer sooner, but as you haven't had any luck here yet, could your movie possibly be John Carpenter's "Vampires"? That one starts with a blonde screaming in a bathtub, but I don't remember her being used for robberies. There is a woman they use to track down a vampire, however. Anyway, it's a shot in the dark. Here's the imdb link. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120877/

        Alright no one knows this one.. An Asian movie.. i thought Japanese but i haven't found it in any books on j-horror. A vengeful spirit causes people that see it to harm or kill themselves.. i only saw a small part.. most likely pre 2006.. opens with a mother or woman preparing an evening meal.. she's chopping celery or bok-choy.. she looks out the widow and sees the ghost .. she continues looking at it as she cuts off her fingers once twice maybe 3 times.. crunch crunch crunch.. .. and that's just the opening!!

        [Moderators: It'd be nice if this site supported replies beneath original comments for clarity.]

        I found the movie I was looking for. It's a Greek/Albanian film called 'Eduart' (2006).

        I kept googling various phrases and discovered that IMDb has a keyword-search feature. I actually found a list of over 250 movies with the keywords "male rape," then I scanned each title until I found the one that fit.

        IMDb keyword-search link: https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword

        (NOTE: Although keyword suggestions are provided, there are MANY more than are listed. So it's better to use the search field.)

        Hello. I'm trying to identify a film from a 2-minute clip I saw on the web.

        The characters are speaking what seems to be an eastern-European language. (My first guess was Russian, but Google Translate on my iPhone doesn't recognize it as Russian.)

        In this clip, a dozen or so rough guys are in a room that may be a prison, but they aren't wearing uniforms. Two guys exchange heated words, then one of them smashes an old TV onto the floor, shattering it. That upsets the other guy, then he (with the help of a couple of others) throws the TV-smashing guy down onto a bed/cot and rapes him, then kills him. (That's why I thought they might be in prison.) Some look on with disgust, but they keep their distance.

        I've uploaded a screenshot of the guys sitting in the room (nothing violent) here: https://imgur.com/a/z4FJxYq

        I don't tend to think of films this "edgy" being made around the world, so I'm really curious what the film is and what it's about, beyond this particular scene. Thanks in advance for your help!

        Hi. I'm trying to find the following film, with no luck thus far:

        It is an international movie, maybe polish, definitely European or eastern European. I believe it was made in the last 15 years. I am very hazy on the plot, but I believe it follows the life of a boy and his siblings kept inside a hidden compound, shut away from life outside and at the mercy of a charismatic but controlling father figure. I believe he is allowed to leave through a secret passageway to scavenge or steal. I think the father may have been murdered at the end of the movie. The movie is haunting me for some reason, and I want to find it so I can figure out why. Thank you!!

        Any chance it's "The Secret of Moonacre" from 2008? I don't remember much and it might be too new, but it fits with magic in the forest and a girl going to a new place.

        I am looking for the name of a move that is set in Europe. I remember one shot has some famous weird garden that the shrubs are pruned into ugly faces. Most of it is set in a small village and a villa or a castle. The plot is a young women and her friend come to see the villa that she has inherited. There is some kind of a love curse and a battle between good and evil for her. I think it involves a ghost of a woman from her ancestry and a man who is a performer in a traveling carnival show. This man transforms into a beast of some sort and rapes her after he drugged her at a dinner party. There was also a dwarf who raped her friend while she was drugged. It was a very bizarre scene. I also remember that the housekeeper was overly involved in things but I don’t know who’s side she was on. For some reason I thought the main character was played by one of the actresses from Twin Peaks but when I searched that way I couldn’t find it.

        I think you are describing the film versions of C.S.Lewis’s books The Chronicles of Narnia. They were shown on PBS. The first in the series was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. That should be enough to get you started to find the exact one you saw.

        No it’s definitely not The Secret Garden. I used to watch that with my cousin a lot when we were young. Used to love that movie.

        This was more mysterious than that. I seem to remember something about a beam of light appearing in the old building, which could have been a church.

        I know it’s a long shot, it was such a long time ago. All I have a vague memories, but remember absolutely loving it.

        @KitanasFan Is it possible you are referring to The Secret Garden? It's a 1993 film about a young girl being sent to live with her uncle on his estate after her parents die. The estate has a garden that is hidden and very magical. She and two other children help to restore it back to a beautiful place and learn its secret.

        So I don't remember the plot of this movie, but I do remember a couple of scenes. This movie was probably from the 70s or 80s. The scene I remember the most is a group of young people on the run from the law taking a woman hostage in a General Store. The woman, who works there, is a heavier woman wearing a dress and an apron. They take her hostage as a way to negotiate with the cops, but they do not intend to shoot her. The gun accidentally goes off and you can see the blood seeping through her dress and apron. I also remember a big shootout between the group and the cops at the end killing most of the fugitives. There was lots of nudity and graphic violence. I am thinking this was along the lines of a Big Bad Mama movie or something like that. Please let me know if you recognize any of these scenes. It's driving me crazy!

        Thanks for the help but it’s not high spirits(1988).. Plz help me to find! I really want to find the movie...

        Q:I remembered it was not the recent movies, and much like erotic movie. With the rainy day(not sure) a couple came to the big house like a castle and the guy(im not sure he is broom) took a shower. When showering the female ghost came and lured him to sex. While they are having sex, girl(im not sure she is a bride) also ended up having sex in the bed and disappeared (at first she thought it was her boyfriend but it was a ghost. Ghost took her away. Basically she slept with invisible ghost) Becasue of this case, people including main character came to reveal the fact. I guess main character is female who has some sort of past related to scare something by scolded or abused from her dad. Also there was a psychometric guy who saw that in the house there were a lot of couples who had sex mesmerised by the ghost. I think the ending was about the demon or satan who try to make people having sex for ritual reason to revive. Is there anyone who knows the name of the movie/video?! Plz help me ;(

        I’m having a very difficult time finding this artsy short film I watched a while ago. It shows a man and a woman hugging then people running up to them to separate their hug, and each time they’re separated, they start to hug each other again, and the motions become more intense, as they keep getting separated by random people and hugging each other, again and again, it just keeps repeating. It made a lasting impression on me. It might be famous, but seeing how I can’t find it, it could be obscure which could make it almost impossible to find since new artsy short films come out all the time. I think it’s an older film, possibly made in the 80’s or 90’s and it might be by an artist who lives in New York. I’d really appreciate any help. Thanks

        It’s a bit of a long shot but I have this movie stuck in my head that I remember watching as a child, but don’t know what it’s called.

        It would be in the 80’s or possibly early 90’s. It was on tv, so could have been a made for TV movie. I seem to think it was British, but I could be wrong.

        The plot is a little vague but I remember some kids being sent somewhere, to a new place/house, maybe with family or to stay with a relative, and there was a really mysterious forest, wooded area. I remember some sort of building that they discover in the woods and that there were links to some sort of magic between the children and the forest/building. Some sort of powers channeling through the children, and they have to do something to work out the mystery.

        I’m afraid that’s all I remember. The main part I remember is this magical, mysterious forest that had an exciting, almost spooky element to it.

        I believe it’s a movie, but could have been a tv show. I only watched the first 20 minutes or so.

        Here’s what I remember:

        Attractive, brunette woman lives alone in a big house with her cat. She meets up with an attractive blonde woman (I think her sister) and they get dinner together. Her sister tells her she needs to stop living a lonely life. The brunette woman goes back home alone and finds a pair of her panties lying on her bed. She calls the police and tells them someone has broken into her home. The police say there’s no sign of a break-in and that it was probably her cat.

        Before this, I slightly remember a married man goes to sleep with his wife and sneaks out of bed at night (leading to believe he is breaking into the brunette woman’s home).

        I wish I had more details - but this has been driving me crazy. Thanks for the help!

        What I can remember about this motel horror movie is I think it was made around 2010. Several couples are on a road trip and end up having to stay in a motel. They party that night with the owners of the motel and they put drugs or something in their drinks and they all pass out in their motel rooms. When they wake up they are all locked in their rooms. One by one they get killed By the owners of the motel. I remember one of the girls had her arms chained to the bed and they chained her legs through the window of the motel room to a truck and pulled her body apart. I tried checking Google with some of the main parts of this movie with no luck.

        I watched this movie it was an Indy movie.

        What I remember is the main character wakes up in this cave or mine. He is attacked by another person who he kills. As he is trying to find a way out he ends up in this strange chamber box with a character wearing a gasmask. They are keeping them locked up and it sort of explains something or another. There is some kind of disease or rage like virus. He at some point like breaks out and the person looses their mask and it's a woman who he rapes. Then they are attacked by the crazy people and escape. At some point she realizes he is infected and has infected her and I think she kills herself and theres some tree of life thing. It was a really strange movie it wasn't bad but that is all I remember.

        Rereading what I wrote Is exactly what I've been typing into google. I saw it maybe five years ago or could have been six. But it was on Netflix I think for a short while and then it popped into my head as something I wanted to watch again and I can't find anything.

        Movie starts off with three cops, two are dating and then an additional guy. The male partner gets shot at a convenience store and dies. Later on in the movie the girl works for a company that gets robbed/held up. The other guy from the beginning I think does errands for the company. I though that movie was called HEIST, but couldn't find any that fit this description. I remember one scene where the robber/thief kisses the girl (from the beginning) In the bathroom amd at the end she ends up getting the male friend to help by sending him to an address that ends reading HELP (somehow, maybe when he flips it upside down)

        I can't remember much, but the movie started out with a view into this nice house with a lot of windows. It was night or early morning as it was dark outside and a lamp was on in the living room? You could see the Christmas tree with white lights. Then I remember a monster/creature of some sort that lived in a cave? It seems like there was a small boy who lived in the house he was afraid of this creature, but then turned out to be friends??? I was really small when I saw this so am thinking it was made in 70's or maybe 80's.

        Back in the 80's I saw a movie where a small family (husband and wife at least, maybe a young boy) were held by three men who feigned some problem to get into the house or cottage and then threatened the owners, I think for money, but I'm not 100% sure why. At first the captors are united ,refusing to cooperate in any way but over time the wife is gradually seduced into compliance with the men while the husband held firm. I think the husband is a fair bit older than his wife but maybe not. She becomes a willing victim and I don't remember how the drama ended. Sorry.

        What’s the movie where a killer hides a victim’s bicycle in a tidal swimming pool that needs to be drained? It was incredibly tense and he may not have been the killer but was being framed for the crime...it’s driving me crazy — all I remember is the water slowly draining out of the filthy pool and the bicycle being slowly revealed.

        Hi! I am trying to find an Australian movie please. It runs two stories alongside each other: a group of 3 girlfriends, one of whom is sleeping with her boss and another who tries to commit suicide (I think) on a beach after they all take drugs on a night out. The one who is sleeping with her boss tells him to get lost in a shopping centre I think. We also track the relationship between 3 male friends, one of whom is a lawyer and I think he also has a porn habit. At the end of the film they all end up in the same beach house. At the start of the film the opening credits go along to a dance track with 'future' being part of either the band title or the song title. I think :)

Its about teenage girls (12 or 13 yo) having a girls party in a house without parents and they are dressed up princess-like and they have a gun.

        I remembered it was not recent movies, much like erotic movie. With the rainy day(not sure) couples came to the big house like a castle and the guy took a shower. When showering the female ghost came and lured him to sex. While they are having sex, girl also having sex in the bed and disappeared (at first she thought it was her boyfriend but it was a ghost. Ghost took her) Becasue of this case, people including main character came to reveal the fact. I guess main character is female who has some sort of past related to scare something by scolded or abused from her dad. Also there was a psychometric guy who saw that in the house there were a lot of couples who had sex mesmerised by the ghost. I think the ending was about the demon or satan who try to make people having sex for ritual reason to revive. Is there anyone who knows the name of the movie/video?! Plz help me ;(

        This is a deep cut and I have not been able to locate any mention of it on any sites or in any reviews, but I am trying to find out what the film or tv show that is featured in Milos Forman's "Loves of a Blonde" is. In the last 30 minutes of the movie, when the husband and wife are introduced, they are watching a film or tv program that features mannequins coming to life in a window shop and dancing. There is also a clown involved. Whatever it is would also have been recent to the filming of "Loves of a Blonde" (probably 1964 or 1965ish) as the style of the mannequins is mid-60s.

        There is no mention of what the media used was in the credits of "Loves of a Blonde." Any help would be phenomenal!

        I'm looking for a film that I saw on TV in probably the mid 90s. It's a crime-thriller that I suspect was inspired by Basic Instinct (1992), which fits that time period.

        In the opening scene, a woman is tied to a bed and smothered to death by the gloved killer, who tapes over her mouth and nose.

        The male protagonist, a detective on the case, is attracted to a female friend, or possibly lover, of the victim during his investigation. I believe she was a scuba diving instructor and that the two went diving together a couple of times.

        As they get to know one another better, the detective pics up on details that makes him suspect she might actually be the killer -- such as a particular knot that she tied, which happened to be the same type of knot used to restrain the murdered woman -- and it builds up to a confrontation between the two.

        That's pretty much all I can remember. Though, I don't think the movie featured any really famous actors. It might never have made it to the theaters, but released straight to VHS/DVD.

I'm sure it falls into the fantasy genre but from what I can remember, its almost like a greek god/medieval world - kind of like Gladiator. I'm struggling to remember the main plot but the main character (a guy) has a best friend (another guy) who is secretly obsessed with his wife. something happens to the main character and his friend is granted x3 wishes (or something similar) and he only has a certain amount of time. The first thing he does is pretend to be the main guy and then he goes to his friend's house to be with his friend's wife with her believing its her husband - he sends their son to bed as well...

        From the brief scene, what comes to mind for me is "Psycho", though you've likely seen that and ruled it out.

        You mentioned several anthologies, but not Twilight Zone. Maybe take a look at the episodes "After Hours" (mannequins), "The Living Doll" (young talking doll), "The Dummy" (talking dummy, but male), "Sixteen Millimeter Shrine" (Ida Lupino episode of her being alive in an unexpected place). Probably a few other episodes that had endings similar to the scene you remember.

        I'm looking for an obscure older movie or TV show which I saw on my TV in the fall of 1976. We didn't even have Cable TV at the time, only channels 2 to 13. I wasn't paying much attention and my memory is very vague. Only one scene sticks out which I remember.

        The one scene I remember lasted just a few seconds and showed a middle aged or older woman sitting inside a house near a fireplace and said something which I don't remember. It scared me because she was somewhat deformed in appearance or because she was either a mannequin or a doll and it was startling to see a mannequin or a doll speaking and moving. The woman somewhat resembled an older version of actress Ida Lupino. That's all I remember. So its anything from 1976 or earlier.

        I watched various horror movies and horror/science fiction TV shows such as Alice Sweet Alice, Burnt Offerings, The Outer Limits, and Dark Shadows and none of them have this scene. Ive watched movies with talking mannequins, dolls, and puppets and could not find the movie I'm looking for. I did find a title to a 1970s horror movie called Killing of the Dolls. Unfortunately it isn't being shown on youtube and I haven't found it on DVD. For some reason its a very hard to find movie. Does anyone know which movie has this scene of a talking mannequin woman sitting inside a house near a fireplace? It isn't Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, and it isn't Tourist Trap. Did I imagine this scene or did I really see it?

        There were some really interesting movies and TV shows in the 1970s.

        I'm looking for an obscure movie dating 2000-2011. It was a low budget movie that went by two different names, however the main, most known name started with an A, I am pretty sure. It is set in an apartment.They story line involves a man answering a house for sale/ room mate ad, and as he turns up, he gets tied to a chair and held captive while they show him videos on a projector. There is a twist to the story where they basically tell him that they made the ad on purpose to catch him but then somehow it turns and he says he answered the ad on purpose so that he could confront them and they are actually the ones trapped (my memory is foggy). I feel there was a woman involved too, in the videos. It might be that the man killed the woman in a car accident and that's why they were out to get him as revenge. No famous actors, the movie was well known in the circles of people who enjoy Primer etc. Thanks for any hints!
