Question: Why does Salim sit in a bathtub surrounded by rupee notes of various denominations before shooting at the mob boss and getting shot in return?

Answer: People have said that it may possibly be a metaphor in that the rupees he is surrounded by is actually "blood money" that the mob bosses had amounted, and he was intent on staining the notes with his own blood. But there is no correct answer to this - it's something that you need to interpret for yourself.

General questions

It's been about 8 years since I've seen the movie but all I remember is that in the beginning a girl comes down the stairs and tries to talk to her mother who is having a party around a piano and singing songs. As the girl stands there she urinates for a very long time. I remember it was about exorcism, but not "The Exorcist". I appreciate any help as I have searched and failed to find out what this is. Thank you.

Answer: This is the opening of Scary Movie 2, which parodies the movie The Exorcist, alongside many other films.

Question: ***SPOILER WARNING*** I don't understanding the ending to this film. What was Mandy's reason for killing people? Is this a flawed character motivation, or did I miss something?

Answer: The reason for Mandy and Emmett killing off the characters is pretty much left open for interpretation, but it seems the reason they killed them was because before Mandy became "hot over the summer" (as Dylan says at the beginning), Emmett and Mandy were treated like outcasts, and after Dylan's death, Emmett probably took a lot of the blame. It's possible that Emmett and Mandy were tired of how the popular crowd had treated them before.At the end, they made a pact to kill themselves. But after finding out that Emmett is just like the others, Mandy backs out and decides not to, but Emmett doesn't take it very well and decides to kill her too. Mandy fights him off, and she saves Garth, who seems to be the only one at the ranch who saw her as a human being and treated her with respect. So any of these reasons may have been motivation (although their actions are extreme), but overall there seems to be no obvious reason.

Answer: It's likely that Mandy developed a taste for murder subsequent to the Dylan incident, in which she evidently was more complicit than would seem at first glance.

I remember seeing a movie and it had a girl in it and I believe that she had split personality. But everyone in her building thought that she had twin, though they never saw them together. I believe that the evil personality (twin) was killing people. If someone has any clue about what I am talking about please answer. Oh, and if I am not mistaken, it starred the brunette girl from "White Chicks."

Answer: It's called "Lethal Eviction" - www.imdb.com/title/tt0416918/

13 Ghosts (2001)

Question: I don't get how the 'baby' or the 'dire mother' died, all you can see is the mum feeding the overgrown baby.

Answer: These are from the Ghost files from the DVD: The Great Child; One of the strangest ghosts I caught had to be Harold Shelburne, The Great Child. His 3-foot tall mother, Margaret Shelburne, was wildly overprotective of her son, smothering and spoiling him from infancy, and never stopping as he grew. Harold could barely care for himself and as a result, remained in diapers his entire life. Mocked at every term, they sought refuge with a traveling freakshow runned by a man named Jimbo. But even the life in the circus was no escape, as they were continuely taunted and tormented by their own twisted kind. One night, some of the freaks kidnapped Margaret as a cruel joke. In a panic-fueled rage, Harold destroyed the entire carnival in search of his mother. When he finally found her, she had died of suffocation. Filled with hatred, Harold grabbed an axe and had his revenge on the freaks. Displaying what was left of them in the carnival for every paying customer to see. When Jimbo found out what had happened, he had Harold mutilated beyond what you and I can comprehend. Well, maybe you. And you thought your family was weird! The Dire Mother Margaret Shelburne, The Dire Mother, was a shy woman who could never stand up for herself, partly because she rose to only a mere three feet in height. Since childhood, she was stared at for her pint size. Her own mother would even sometimes dress her like a doll. Margaret didn't care, aslong as she found some perverse form of acceptance. A carnival barker named Jimbo put her on display in his freakshow. Life was horrible, being an attraction for people to gawk at. One night while sweeping up a donkey pen, she was raped by the "Tall Man". She spawned a beastily offspring of her own. Oh, she loved her dear son Harold, more than life itself, never letting him out of her sight. The circus workers teased and tormented them relentlessly, a conflict that played itself out with a bloody resolve that left nearly the entire circus free of life.. including poor Margaret and Harold. Well, as they say, "there's no business like show business."

Answer: The 'baby' was an abused mentally disabled man named Harold Shelburne who was abused so much at an old timey circus that when his mother the Dire Mother, who raised him poorly, was kidnapped and killed, he slaughtered the circus. With an axe. Soon after a mob torn him to shreds.

General questions

Does anyone remember what the programme was called (UK only) that had a crazy artist painting all the time, and a pair of washing up gloves that made things in front of an audience at a theatre? It was something like 'Zap' or 'Zig Zag', but I can't remember exactly. I know it sounds like a really weird show, but I used to love it.

Answer: Yes! It was called "Zzzap!" - I used to watch it all the time! The artist was called Smarty Arty, played by Neil Buchanan. The hands were called the Hnadymen. There was also other characters, including Daisy Dares You, and Cuthbert Lily (He's Dead Silly), haha! The imdb link is: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454759/

General questions

I really need some help with a film I saw about ten years ago. I'm pretty sure it was an American movie. There was a boy who had a small, old closet in his room. He was playing with some toys, and locked up a little Indian doll in that closet. The next morning he heard some noises, and saw that the doll had come alive. I also remember that the boy had made a plastic deer come alive, so that the doll could hunt it.

Answer: I'm pretty sure you're thinking of the Frank Oz movie "The Indian in the Cupboard."

I saw the very end of this movie on TV, but, alas, didn't catch the title. There was a man in a desert, talking to a leopard, who is tied up. The man says something and walks away. The leopard squeezes out of it's leash and attacks him. There's a struggle and the man stabs the leopard and it dies. He starts crying and cradles the leopard, which he then carries away. The film ends with a wide shot of him carrying the leopard through the desert. Any ideas?

Answer: Passion in the Desert (1997).

Question: I haven't seen this movie because my parents won't let me, but I've heard that the main character's yearbook pictures of her friends have something to do with how they are killed. Could somebody make a list of the characters and how they are killed and how their deaths pertain to the pictures?

Answer: Erin Ulmer: Nails go through her head. In the picture she is sticking her middle fingers up, and the focus is on her fingernails. Lewis Romero: The weights he is working out with smash his head. At first they think that he is going to be killed by the swords (in the picture their was a statue of a samurai with swords), but in the end, he was killed by being crushed by weights - the foreshadow in the photo was that he was using a weighty "test-your-strength" funfair game. Ashley Freund and Ashlynn Halperin: The tanning beds catch on fire, and they are both burnt to death in the beds. The foreshadowing in the photo is (a) the girls are red and out of focus in the picture and (b) they are holding an inflatable palm tree. In their death sequence a palm tree falls over, knocks a plank of wood down and traps the girls in the tanning beds. Frankie Cheeks: The cooling fan from a car goes into his head. In his photo we see his standing right beside a fan, and it looks as though it is going into his head. Ian Mckinley: A cherry picker collapses and knocks a sign over and cuts him in half. There is no real connection to his photo here, as he escaped his original death (his original death was to be hit by a stack of sharp pieces of wood.) Perry Maloinski: A flagpole impales her. In the photo where she is standing next to Julie by the carousel, an American flag can be seen behind her head. Julie Christensen: A train wheel hits her. Kevin Fischer: He falls out of a train window. Wendy Christensen: A Train hits her.

Freeway (1996)

Question: Where does Vanessa's family live? It must be pretty far south if Bob Wolverton is going up to Los Angeles.

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Stockton.

Hamster Premium member

Answer: Not stated, but a bit confusing. Vanessa's car breaks down in Sylmar (just north of Los Angeles), but Bob says he's only heading to LA (indicating somewhere South of LA). This is lead to being more like a mistake but leaving as an answer.

Question: How come when Lisa is swimming in the pool none of her eyes wash out or anything like the others?

Answer: I don't think she ever died after taking the tonic, unlike Madeline and Helen. She took the potion simply to keep her young good looks and (as stated earlier with Madeline), Lisa is in fact 71 years old with the looks of a 38 year old.

Question: I don't understand it when Pistachio's mother, on the camera screen, saying "no more caramel corn for me." What was that about?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Bowman has captured Fabrizzio, and he has to do something with Mrs. Disguisey, so he says "Thanks to a special potion we put in the caramel corn, she thinks she is still at home preparing dinner," and then we see her on the TV screen eating the caramel corn and making food. She then later "pretends" to prepare food, then when Bowman tells the guard to pounce on Mrs. Disguisey, she whacks him, as if she were aware that she has been captured. She then informs the camera "No more caramel corn for me."
