  • Does anyone remember the the title of this movie/tv show?

    Personally I've never seen this film but I recall my Aunt briefly describing a few key elements of a scene from the show or movie in question. It involved what could be either an alien or troll and I can't recall if it was just one or more, she said the scene involved a scenario where the troll/alien(s) hid under a couch with a knife when the house owner came home and jabbed her ankles with the knife whenever she sat down. That's all I can remember, if there's any sort of help you can provide then I'm thankful.

  • What was the name of this movie/tvshow?

    A man dressed in a burglar outfit with clown make up on, steps through the dark hallway of a woman's home while she's taking a shower. He makes his way though the hallway toward a baby's bedroom. The baby stands in its crib crying for its mother, and that's all I remember. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

  • What is the title of this football related young teen novel?

    Alright so im having trouble remembering the name of a teen novel, i read the novel quite awhile ago so it will be difficult to provide specifics in terms of plot, primarily I remember the things that stuck out the most but i'll try to give a very very vague synopsis.

    It was centered around a boy in highschool who has difficulty being accepted among his peers, not because of social deficiencies but rebellion( again everythings as i recall it) He's pressured into playing football by his parents who were popular in highschool but his actually quite athletic naturally, this particular year is difficult because he tries to make the jump from junior varsity to varsity. He has a friend on the team who shares his social dillemma and ideals and acts as support throughout the novel, from what i remember one makes varsity, one does not. later in the novel the romantic interest of the protagonist is revealed and I believe she's his next door neighbor but i could be wrong, I do know she was a tennis player.

    Other details that i can recall:

    theres a scene at a party where the protagonist hooks up with a girl for the sport of it and i clearly remember that he wasn't completely interested but he did make a comment stating that he was decently attracted to her, i think he said she had red hair...or autumn I can't recall

    theres a scene where he muffs a punt and his coach scolds him.

    I remember he goes to the prom and his parents make a comment along the lines of " your finally turning out like us"

    I could be wrong but i think he starts playing tennis to win the girls affection or maybe he starts playing with her...and I think theres a scene where he repeatedly hits the ball off of a brick wall back and forth

    I remember he buys her a coke at one point in the novel if that helps haha

    and I'm pretty sure he kisses her torwards the end

    hopefully those details and my synopsis helped. Again, I'm in college now and I read the novel when I was in the 6th grade so i tried to do the best i could

    oh and i remember that the author was female!

    If you identify this novel and could name it for me I'd be eternally thankful!
