    Can you identify this film I watched years ago.......?

    It was about this mermaid who got taken out of the sea and she looked and acted like a normal person. She met this bloke and one day while they were in town (I have no idea how she was walking), her fin accidently rolled out onto the floor beneath her coat and everyone around was obviously shocked. Next thing I remember she got captured and was put in a water tank in a science lab or something and I'm not sure about this but I think the man turned out to be a mermaid too. She was treated like an experiment and I think she fell in love with the man/ the man was looking after her. I think it was all American actors.

    Lol I know it sounds lame
    Possibly could be Splash. starring tom hanks.

    It's a horror film; there's people trapped in these like cages, there's water in them and a grate over their heads. The main character is a girl but she meets a guy in another cage next to her. There's someone else but they're taken off to be killed by the murderer/monster/whatever.

    I can really vagely remember the oddest scenes. My friend thinks it's Creep but I'm not 100%
    Yeh, sounds very much like Creep.

    I'm desperately trying to find the name of a film I sure as a child. Firstly, IT'S NOT E.T.!!!!!!
    It's quite old school, must be 80s maybe??

    All i can remember is a boy finding some sort of little alien creature. They become friends, and at one point theyre in a spaceship together flying over a town in the dark with loads of stars in the sky...

    Longshot, but anyone know what i'm talking about!? Lol
    Sorry, it's a rather late reply, but would it be 'Mac and Me?"

    I remember seeing this movie on TV when I was like 7, where a group of pioneers found this island ruled by chimps who captured some of the pioneers and sacrificed them by putting them on an altar thingy and smashing a rock on their face. I remember the remaining pioneers befriending some of the chimps, because some of 'em were good. Or were they bad? And there was one bit where they were hiding in a bush from a raid of chimps, and there were chimps hiding in the bush with them, and they helped camoflauge them.

    It wasn't the original Planet of the Apes was it? It's the only thing I can think of, but I'll keep looking.

    Part of it is about a mother and her daughter in a supermarket. The little girl was in a trolley, carrying a doll. This doll's obsessed and evil, and makes all the people in the supermarket kill themselves. The mother kept running into these dying people and runs out of the supermarket.

    I just remember watching this segment on TV when I was younger.. I was too scared to watch it all back then, but now that I like horrors, I really want to watch the whole movie! Any ideas?

    Can't remember the name of the film. Here is what I remember:

    Loads of animals live in a wood. An elder teaches all the younglings and mentions some flying contraption he invented. Humans come in and kill the animals (gas I think). One elder and the younglings survive. One of the younglings is ill. The other younglings must go to some giant cliff to recover a flower so the elder can cure the ill youngling. The younglings build his contraption and get the plant.

    A deadly doll? Sounds like it could be one of the Chucky/Child's Play movies (though I'm probably wrong).

    Close encounters of the third kind?

    Although in that film he only boards it right at the end, and it doesn't show him travelling. Can you give us any more info?
