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.

        Hello all. I've been trying to to find the name of a movie since I saw a part of it as a child. The only thing I recall, is that there was a large white bed with several "People" under white sheets. They have a conversation, then it pans back to show that all the heads are being controlled by tentacles from the same "alien?" I believe it's supposed to be set in the 1980s, and probably is a 1980s B movie. I would appreciate any help at all. Thank you so much.

        I am looking for the name of a movie where a girl goes to a get together at a friend’s house. While there the friends all start to die in an almost time loop way. One guy is trapped in a hot tub and basically boiled to death, a girl is trapped in the bathroom and slits her wrist. (The girl seems to be controlling their actions.) Her abusive father shows up and she forces him to kill himself also. There is another part where a guy is shot through the floorboards while trying to escape. The girl finally tries to leave the house, she runs out and in true time loop fashion ends up at the house again with all of her friends still inside waiting on her just like at the beginning of the movie.

        Did I make this up or is this really a movie?!?

        Please help and Thanks!

        I'm looking for the title for an indie movie that might be Canadian, in english. It's about a man whose father is sick in the hospital. He has two friends, one slim build and one large build. The man meets a woman and they start dating. The friends feel alienated and get jealous so there's a scene where the two friends ambush the girlfriend at a party and kidnap her back to the main character's place. One friend rapes her while the other friend recorded it on his cellphone. The man goes home looking for her and finds his two friends sitting in his living room. One friend shows him the video so the man stabs him, the larger friend tries to run away and he blocks a knife attack causing his hand to split open. The man goes into the bedroom to find his girlfriend unconscious, he then helps her walk out of the house to get help from her injuries.

        There is a movie that I watched when I was a kid and I vividly remember some scenes, but cannot find the title. It was an American movie that I think started in a house of what seemed like a statement, or an influential person, or protected witness, where a family of four (parents + son and daughter) lived. As far as I remember they had some kind of security guards in front of the house. All of the family was asleep when the son I think had a dream and walked up sensing something bad is about to happen. Then he ran into his parents bedroom and woke them up. The father went towards the front door where he was shot dead. At the same time the boy went hiding behind the curtains. The intrudes killed the mother and the daughter as well. Only the boy survived witnessing all of his family gets murdered. Then I think the movie continues fast forward 20-30 years when the boy is already grown up and he hunts his family killers.

        I have tried everything but cannot find the movie. I would really appreciate if you could help. Thanks a million!

        This is all abit embarressing, but I can't remember if this is a movie or a series. Either way, the only thing I can remember is that two armies are marching to face off for ultimate dominace or something. As one of the armies have set up camp and are waiting for the next day, they look up on a hill and there is a silhouette of a christian monk holding up a crusifix. The leader or general of the army looks up and we don't find out what happend until the other army shows up the day after and they find nothing left of the army exepct their tents and banners.

        I think something simular happend later aswell in the climax, but I'm not sure.

        I feel like I remember the production value was pretty good aswell as it seems to be have made more recently.

I don't remember the plot of the movie, but it had something to do with a pair of siblings, boy and girl who were being chased by some villain in a submarine of some sort. The world they are in is kind of trippy and the most memorable scene i remember were talking houses in different colors.

        I cannot remember this movie where a single mom and her teenage daughter lives in a small town (very low population). Her daughter always go missing every night, and has shown sinister tendencies for instance she would scrape her nails aggressively on the wall or on her bed frame/board until her nails came off. I remember that every night all the teenagers get possessed. There was a scene where a father/priest could not control a possessed teenager w/ his bible and holy water. And I also remember in the beginning of the movie, there were a group of children (teens and younger) following some type of thing, as if they were in a cult. Just to add, the single mom has some type of relationship with a police officer from their small town, who would help her find her daughter after she goes missing and he was there to protect them through out the whole movie. do y’all know the name of the movie?

        The movie is probably made within the last 10 years. I watched it on Netflix, but the removed it. The plot is fairly simple, these teenagers/young adults are all on a boat. They begin mysteriously dying or disappearing one by one. Spoilers; in the end it was the couple that killed all the people on the boat. The couple then turns on one another, and the sole survivor is the murderer. I specifically remember the ending with a woman strolling on the beach and a song playing that went something like, “As I walk hand in hand with old death on the beach...” and the rest is a blur. I’d put it in the genre thriller/mystery. It had it’s horror moments, but I don’t think that was the focus. Help would be appreciated, I’ve searched for this movie for longer than I can remember! Ha!

Then I remember one of the parents tried to get one of the kids out the window but I don’t think they fit. Then at the end they all have their throats slit and the neighbours come the next morning and scream and that is the end. the kid going out the window isn’t the shining by the way

        I believe the movie you're looking for is, WARLOCK. The blonde antagonist is played by actor, Julian Sands. The mention of a person being turned into a sculpture is what jogged my memory.

        Happy viewing!

        = = = = =

        Your original post:

        "Im looking for a movie, which i think was released in the 90s.

        protagonist compose of a boy and a girl with somesort of telephatic powers?

        antagonist is a blonde skinny face dude with long hair.

        some scenes includes the antagonist ripping the hair of a woman including the scalp to moisten an old map.

        also the blonde hair turned one guy to a sculpture."

When the mother starts the car, the radio turns on and connects the bluetooth of her son's computer. The son is watching porn on his computer and the sounds of the porno come blaring on the car radio, to the amusement and then disgust of the mother and daughter. The movie was made within the last five or seven years (probably less). Thank you for your help!

        I am trying to find an 80s movie where a woman goes in to labour in a forest like setting (or in a super huge hollowed out tree???) and her stomach is glowing blue (similar to what you see in Willow when he uses magic) and she gives birth and the baby is glowing blue as well. I feel like she was magical or the baby was magical or special hence the blue glow I guess. A group of people then have to take care of/protect the baby from then on. I feel like it was a sci-fi ish movie and I think it was from the 80s due to the "special effects" and recollection of when I saw it/my age around then. I have searched high and low and all the well known 80s movies are not the one I am after... Thoughts?

        Looking for the name of a fairly low budget Canadian movie. Looks like it takes place in the 90's. A young guy on a snowmobile gets into an accident. A nice couple take him in, nurse him back to health. He finds they have a daughter (dead) being preserved in her room. The young guy finds her, delusionally thinks she is alive, and falls in love with her. Her parents host a wedding for him and their dead daughter. Guy marries her. Makes "love" to her. He somehow realizes he's trapped in their house. Eventually, he does something to hurt the dad, and escapes on his snowmobile. I'm pretty sure the dead girl's name is Rose, and the ending scene shows a rose in the snow with blood on it.

        The name of this movie is driving me crazy - been looking for 2 years. I'm sure my google history looks damn crazy every time I go looking.

        Hey, so I’ve been trying to find these 2 movies for years now I’m 22 now but I remember watching them 1 time each as a child and I only remember a specific part of each movie. So in the first movie I’m trying to find the scene is of a woman in the restroom I think she’s wearing a robe in the restroom and her leg is on the toilet seat and she peels off a long strip of the skin on her leg and sets it aside. In the other movie I’m trying to find it’s dark in a house and a pregnant lady is on the stairs and starts screaming when something rips out of her belly and it’s a bloody Buddha like the statue one that’s crossing its legs smiling, anyway that’s all I remember I’ve been trying to find these 2 movies for years and I get no results here or on google. Please help the movies are probably from either the 90s or early 2000s

It had a scene in it where they find the old lady dead in the apartment. Then when they see her face ,after turning the chair around or going around the chair I can't remember, her face is contorted and her tongue is sticking out to the side. She was cursed or some kinda magic or occult powers were used on her to kill her. There may have been a fireplace in the apartment if it helps. What movie do you think this is.

        hi! ok so I believe this was on either hulu or Netflix a few years ago:

        the movie starts off with a sex scene, a redhead walks into her home to find her boyfriend cheating her. She then packs up and starts making the cross country trip back to her family. She stops at a rest stop and then something happens to her car. She brings it to the nearest mechanic, falls asleep in his office I believe and then wakes up in a cage? then at the end of the movie she locks the guy who kidnapped her into the same cage and leaves.

I don't remember much about the film, but at the beginning a woman is on a road trip with several of her friends, they come to a stop sign across from a warehouse building, she takes a picture of the window and thinks she sees something, a bunch of other events ensue, and at the end she is in said warehouse afraid for her life and staring out the warehouse window she sees herself and her friends in the van again. The whole movie seems to be set on a loop of some kind, where the ending starts at the beginning again. Any help is appreciated. Please and thank you

        I am trying to find a movie that i watched when i was a kid. It was about a group of people going to an underground tunnel. I believe a red eye robot kills a guy named doug or dog. Then the final enemy was called centaur or minotaur. The protagonist end up outside of a cave outside of a hill. This has to be a 90s movie

        I’m trying to find out the name of this really weird movie I saw as a kid. I can’t remember much about it, other than the guy in it had this meatball-looking creature that had no arms or legs. It had shark-like teeth, if I can remember correctly, and eyes. In one scene, the guy dressed it up as a baby with a baby hat and a blanket and stored it away in a basket. That’s all I can really remember of it.

        One scene I remember was a family was trying to survive the heat of the sun. They reached city centre but realised there was no one around. Until they clicked onto the fact that everyone was sheltering from the suns overwhelming heat.

        I,m trying to find an hour long movie made in England(I think) A father and son put it together.The son,who plays a plain clothes cop is after this this other kid who mugged an old lady.Every time he gets spit in the face he smiles and says 'hmm tasty'.It's really campy and very low budget,but it's really very,very funny! There's a scene where the cop tries to chase the perp but there's no vehicle so he sees a little kids tricycle and he tries to use it to chase the guy but of course he's to big for it and he can't get it going so he starts swearing at it and gives it the finger! It,s supposed to be a horror comedy.I thought it was called,Killer zombies from outer space,but every time I look for it,a different movie comes up.I know I haven,t done a good job explaining the movie but I hope you can help.By the way,it's in the same vein as one of my favorite horror comedies-Fear City-.I've watched both of these movies at least five times!

        Can you provide more information about the movie? How did the girl become trapped in the house? Was she held prisoner by someone or was she trapped by accident or mistake. Was this movie a horror movie or was it a drama movie or something else? Was this an American film or was it made overseas? What was she doing while stuck in the house? Thanks.

        Maybe about 5 years ago it was October and i was hanging out in the living room. I don’t have the name but I do remember 4 scenes in particular. From what I think the plot was the girl was cursed. In two scenes she appeared to be possessed. In one of these scenes she tries to pour boiling water on her mom which results in her sweater catching on fire. In the other one she’s roughhousing with her brother which escalates to her trying to drown him. In another scene with her brother he chases his soccer ball into the road and gets hit by a car then the scene transitions to his funeral. In the last scene I remember she’s having a small argument with her boyfriend then he is spontaneously shot. If you know what movie I’m referring to please let me know. I’d like to watch the full thing.

I can only think of John Ritter, but I don’t think it’s correct. Who ever played the guy always played a nice guy on other shows. The girls mother had to protect her because the police wouldn’t help. I think at the end of the movie there was a house fire. I want to say there was a scene where the guy followed the girl to her softball practice/game. Please help. I’ve been searching google forever!

        This is going way, way back, to a film I saw in probably the 70s, possibly the early 80s.

        The scene that sticks in my mind is where there's a party or disco of some kind in a nightclub or disco in an upstairs room or maybe on a rooftop.

        There's a car in the room, as decoration I guess. A young man is either drunk, stoned, or very unhappy. He gets into the car and drives it out of the window or off the roof and is killed, shocking all the other party---goers.

        I remember almost nothing else about the film. Probably it was a sort of coming-of-age thing like American Graffiti or Four Friends.

        Can anyone help, please?

        I don't remember much but it should be about a foreign man who's, I believe, washed up from the ocean and found by a woman. He asks her for food in his own language (I think it was bread, "pan, pan!") and she brings him into her home to recover. I think she's wealthy or something like that. I remember that towards the end of the movie there's a love scene between the two in a sea cave. I think he had medium to long length hair but this is all I recall. It's similar to Tarzan but has nothing to do with it. Thank you!

        @Jess. I believe you might be looking for Ghost Team from 2016. Here is a description. Louis is a regular guy. He runs a small print-and-copy shop in a Long Island strip mall. He drinks beer with his best buddy, Stan. He hunts for evidence that ghosts exist. Believe it or not, Louis is normal, one of many thousands of people who consider themselves amateur ghost hunters. It’s an escape from the drudgery of his daily routine and a reminder that there may be more to life than he knows. When a customer walks into his print shop and mentions possible paranormal activity at an abandoned farm outside of town, Louis sees a chance to finally indulge his hobby for real. With the help of his depressed best friend, a screw-up nephew, an overly vigilant mall cop, a hack cable-access psychic, a whip-smart beautician and a van filled with amateur equipment, Louis is determined to catch some ghosts on film. But poltergeists are the least of what the team finds in the abandoned McIntosh estate. What begins as a bumbling attempt to explore the farm soon becomes a hilarious and terrifying race to escape it alive.

        Horror- A guy who works at a printing shop. Invite the girl in the shop next to him(dont remember the shop) and some of his friend to film a farm he heard was haunted. So one of his friend work in a tech shop. They still some tech to film the farm. They have to park the car along the round and carry all the equipment along a dark muddy road. The walk to they farm they moan about not being able to drive straight to the farm. When they get to the farm they set up their equipment. As the night goes on they capture a lot of supernatural things. For example one of the guys was in the barn and a woman was behind. Near the end of the movie they find that there is a drug farm underneath the farm. Were men in all in one white suit are looking after the plants. They get in a fight with the men. Then the men lock them in the farm and set fire to it. I cant remember if they live or died. Also imdb and whats my movie dont know the movie either.

        1. Comedy: A man claims insanity to avoid going to prison, so is sent to a mental institution, although the person who runs the prison is sure he's lying but decides to still "believe" him, either because he can't prove it or as a lesson. It's a pretty old movie I think, maybe 80s? I thought John Candy was the protagonist but I checked his movies and apparently not. At one point some ducks/geese are given either the meds he's supposed to be taking or alcohol and they stumble around.

        2. A woman that stays at a hotel I think, finds either a novel/manuscript/letters, or half a novel, and gets invested in the story, trying to find out what happened, who wrote it, etc. I think she was blonde with short hair.

        Thanks for taking the time to think about it, regardless of if you know them or not.

        I am looking for a short film. It is a man who is in a coma, "awake" in a forest, there is a house where a girl lives. before there used to be a nun, with whom the girl learned to play poker but she died there.

        I remember that there is a door through which you can see the people who are next to you, in the real world, but you cannot open it, you can only go through it when it opens for you and that is when you leave the coma.

        Another thing I remember is that there is something in the forest that wants to kill the girl, and that the door opens for the man, because he manages to wake up from the coma and begins to look for the girl to wake her up as well.

        So my mom has been trying to think of the name of this movie for a while now. I’ve done much googling, using the detailed scenes from the movie my momma told me about, but we’ve had no such luck at all! Maybe someone else could help....

        So, it’s an older movie... mid to late 80s my momma said. It’s about a mom who becomes paralyzed from the neck down and now has to rely on her three daughters to take care of her. The youngest daughter even helps her mom sip on her martinis every night.

        There’s a scene where the mother and youngest daughter are sitting out in the garden and the mom tells the daughter to pull the wings off a bug, saying “is it better to leave the bug alive and suffering or to put it out of its misery”, basically telling the daughter she wants to die. And has the daughter helped drown her while in the bathtub.

        "Who's That Girl" 1987 with Madonna

        I need help with a movie I saw on TV in the 80's or early 90's. It seems set in the 1970s or early 80's. A teenage boy and girl, the girl has brown hair and is taller than the boy, they become friends and talk about sex and relationships. The boy's parents are divorced and his dad has a bachelor pad with a sunken sofa and and a mirrored partition. The girl is wondering if her parents are getting a divorce. They hang out at the bachelor pad and in the scene I remember most, they start playing with the mirror partition, they each stand at one end with half their body showing, reflecting the other half so it gives the illusion of seeing their whole bodies, the boy uses the illusion to swallow a pencil and the girl uses it to look like she's dancing with both feet off the floor. Any help appreciated, thank you!
