    Need help finding a movie title.

    My wife remembers seeing this movie in the early 80's. She would have been in her early teens. There was a woman having dreams/visions of a red room (the room and everything in it was red) and being chased. At the end she was running and jumped over a guy she thought was dead and he reached up and grabbed her leg. According to her it was V E R Y scary (but she's a wimp so take that with a grain of salt).

    That sounds a lot like Carrie. Her high school and the prom were main points in it too.

    There was also a Carrie ripoff movie called Jennifer. Anyone remember that. I think it had one of the Brady boys...Greg? Can't remember the details except it was awful!

    It wasn't Carrie or Jennifer. The only other thing she can remember is that they went to the theater to see Herbie the Love Bug (1982) and snuck in to see this instead....but she's not positive about this.

    The first thing that came to my mind was one of the "Amityville Horror" movies.

    Roger: Might this be The Sentinel? The thing came out in 1976 or 1977. Though I don't remember the emphasis on red, the rest of your wife's description sounds like something out of The Sentinel. Anybody else? JB

    Roger ... I took "The Love Bug" approach to try to help you out.
    The original Disney Love Bug movie was 1968 ... The 1982 version you note was a TV show. More likely, the movie your wife went to see was Herbie Goes Bananas (1980) - probably a summer release, but not noted in imdb.
    As it turns out, 1980 was a watershed year for horror movies including:
    • Maniac (December release - I was there)
      Prom Night
      The Changeling (28-Mar)
      Dressed to Kill
      The Howling
      The Awakening (Oct)
      The Boogieman (7-Nov)
      The Fog (8-Feb)
      The Shining
      Night of the Demon
      and, of course ... Friday the 13th (10-May)
    But my guess is the classic .... He Knows You're Alone (12-Sep-1980).

    Thanks for the ideas, guys. I'll have to go through these with my wife.

    Scott, thanks for the clarification on the Herbie movie. It does help to know the correct year!

    Not sure why she wants to know other than she has remembered it all this time. She absolutely HATES horror movies now.

    Hmm, the room all in red, with someone coming back from the dead ... Perhaps Ingmar Bergman's Cries and Whispers? [​IMG]
