need help for this film PPPLLLEEEAAASSSEEEE
Hi guys.
I have a big collection of banned and uncut VHS tapes from the 70's and 80's before the pre cert era. There is one film though which I'm trying to locate. Here goes. The film is about a woman he thinks she is seeing things in her house. The house is full of little "gnome" like men with coneheads. Two scenes I particularly remember was when one hides behind the plant pot during a dinner party and the second is when she is dragged threough the air vent at the end of the film. THer name is whispered throughout the film and I am sure that she is laughing at the end as she becomes one of them. This film really freaked me out as I was only about 6 years old when I watched it and I would love to see it again. This was a serious film, no humour or comedy elements. It is really bugging me. Please help.

Something wrong if your parents were letting you watch stuff like that at 6 years old. Don't kids watch cartoons anymore?

So I take you don't know the name of the film then? Those were the days when the PC brigade was an embryo in the catacombs of Westminster.

PS... NIce photo --- SINGLE?

Troll or Troll 2? Those weren't really coneheaded...Was it particularly violent? Maybe Trilogy of Terror Part 2?

*******

Heh, thanks, but fraid not. I just rock.

Nothing to do with being PC...18 cert films (12s and 15s too) have those certificates for a reason and I just don't think kids should be watching them underage is all. ESPECIALLY in the cinema. Damned pikey chavs taking little Britney in to see (insert 12 cert film here) and then having to listen to her ball her eyes out cos someone died.

(Don't know the movie either)

Now there's a chat up line that lets you know where you stand.  I might encourage my mates to use that...

Alright darling.  Nice X - single? Wink

I have a 'copy' of that somewhere - will have to check it out. It's considered something of a classic.
