    Check out this project I made on the Zodiac Killer. My project is called Zodiac the Lost Tapes.I really get you in the Zodiac’s head as he is killing his victims. This project is very unique. It’s a combination between a documentary, short film, music videos, and mix tape all in one. You can view all 5 parts to Zodiac The Lost Tapes on my page

  25. Bombeni says:

    Help me remember, the movie from the 80s with the star, a blonde w blue eyes, is homeless I think, and he’s hanging around homeless ppl near some kind of outreach church. One time they are outside watching tv and the illuminati breaks up the picture, they hear and see some stuff they shouldn’t. I hope this rings a bell with someone.

  26. Carolanne Fisher says:

  27. Alexandru Pont says:

    Does anyone know the name of an old horror movie from the 90’s with some demonic tombtone with flashing green lights, and people that were inhaling this toxic or poisonous gas, standing still like some freaking zombies, just inhaling that toxic gas, having their eyes turned over their heads….. that movie scarred me in the 90’s a a little 6 year old….. i’m searching for 10 years now, but no clue…. must be one of those old forgotten horror movies, but i remember being awesome!

  28. CaliforniaMetalHeadForever8642 says:

    Dream Demon or the Kiss could have easily been on this list.

  29. shadow21814 says:

  31. cymaddux31 says:


    Kubrick didnt write the music, he DIRECTED the film.

  32. Kaushik Bhattacharya says:

    There was a movie where a woman and her daughter have a breakdown and they are brought in by a man to their home where his entire family is a psycho. The woman and the daughter find themselves imprisoned in their home, while her husband enquires about them from the police. The man who imprisons the woman and the child sees the vision of his dead father in wheelchair cursing him for his wrong deeds. I remember the last scene of the movie is that the man had a daughter who throws the doll into the well. Can anybody tell me the name of the movie ? 
    I can’t get the name , but I had watched it in the mid 1990’s. TIA.

    What movie was the one where a woman with her kids are in an old Victorian style house, and she has a set of old keys that go to every room. She has to lock one door to open the next. The only thing I can remember is that the whole movie she is alive and sees ghosts. At the end, it zooms out and you see her going from room to room using the keys. It turns out the ghosts are living ppl and she and her kids are actually dead, inhabiting the house. Do you remember this one? I think it’s from the 80’s.
