I hope someone can help me with the title of a horror movie I saw years ago. I'm not sure if it was a movie or an episode of a series, but it was in black and white and was made in either the late 60s or early 70s (I'm giving away my age here!).
Anyway, here is what I can remember of the plot: A little girl has a doll. She and the doll at times trade places, meaning the girl sometimes becomes a toy while the doll becomes a human. One time the girl's mother comes into her room and sees her daughter as a doll in a box waving to her and the doll as a human. The mother screams in terror.
If any of you can tell me the title of this show, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been thinking of this show for quite a few years now and it drives me crazy. Thanks to all of you for your help.
This was the name of the show on Twilight Zone
I forgot to add the Title of the Show:
"The After Hours"
I, too, remember that episode of The Twilight Zone!! If I recall correctly, the doll was a gift from the little girl's mother's father who had been visiting in Haiti, or where ever voodoo is practiced. They traded places several times, but at the end the mother scared them while the little girl was the doll, and the doll ran away - that always stuck w/me! I never wanted a life-size doll after that!!!
The main character in the episode "After Hours" was an adult woman. I'm pretty sure the one we're looking for is "Living Doll". The doll's name was Talky Tina. -- Believe it or not, it also starred Telly Savalas!
I believe your talking about the movie I thought was called Where The Woodbine Twine. after trying to look it up I found out the title is :Where The Woodbine Twineth .I remember it was about a little girl who's father was I think a long shore men that was out to sea for months. He came home and brought her a black life size doll named nooma.the girl kept telling her aunt that nooma was going to take her where the woodbine twine and never come back.the aunt didn't believe her at first until one day she heard the little girl playing with someone else .she knew she heard another childs voice but it was only the little and the doll in the room she locked the doll in the foyer and the doll got out somehow.Nooma came alive and the little girl turned into the doll.and went to the woodbine twine.I hope this is the movie your looking for unfortunately it's not on the market for sale.
It looks like it was an episode on The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, called "Where the Woodbine Twineth". Here is a link with a summary, which sounds like what you are describing.
The film has a scene in it that is filmed at night and all I remember is the people or creatures in silhouette throwing people in a open pit that I presume is the opening to hell! I know it's vague, but it's been in my head for 40 years now.
1981's The Pit? Creepy as all get out.
What is the horror movie where a group of young filmmakers stay in a house possessed by a demon? The demon places toys in suggestive sexual positions (the filmmaker in the group is accused of that), one guy cheats on his girlfriend with another member of the group (takes off her glasses when she's reading a book in bed and kisses her) and the demon appears at the end.
It was about a guy and his girlfriend who had to save a little girl in his family from something under her bed. The only way to save her is to go to the bed and leave a certain number of blood relatives and leave them and let the thing grab the person and pull them under the bed. The only scene I remember is where the grandma, who can't speak and is a wheelchair, is left by the dude and girlfriend in the little girl's room to get pulled under the bed and killed and or maybe eaten.
I need the name of the scariest horror I have ever watched, and to make things worse I was a kid and watched it in a hospital. I remember a man in a black suit and hat walking up a path to a house (think he was the devil) chainsaws in a garage going off, and I think someone was locked in the car.
Also a glass of water with a black thing in it and a pit to hell with fire.
It had a short big build woman in it with a squeaky voice.
Think something happened with puddles and reflections also
I have a weird question. Does anyone remember a movie from the early 70s about a family and a dollhouse. Whatever happened in the dollhouse happened to the family. I know there was a fire in the end. Anyone remember?
I think it was called Mirror Mirror, but I don't know and can't find it anywhere. The movie has a mirror from the Amityville house and it shows you how you die. I remember an Asian artist lady has it and it shows her hang herself. I know it's not any of the Mirrors movies and not Mirror Mirror with Karen Black. Dpes anyone know the movie I am talking about? Also where can I get it?
Amityville: A New Generation
Check this link to see if it matches your recollection: www.imdb.com/
I agree - it sounds like Amityville: A New Generation 1993 Horror movie.
There are a bunch for sale on eBay if you are still looking for a copy. They have several formats:
Either Amityville a New Generation or Amityville 3-D
It was a movie about a young woman (maybe a teen?) who was put in a glass coffin to be buried (it was placed on a horse drawn wagon so an old setting). She wasn't really dead, but couldn't move, open her eyes or tell anyone she wasn't dead. It was a black and white TV movie (may have been set in England?).
I watched with my dad on a rainy Saturday afternoon when I was a kid, probably 1966 or so? It made such an impact on me that to this day (I just turned 60) I refuse to be put in a casket or buried! I'd like to see it again, but don't have any clue what it might be called.
Perhaps The Longest Night:
The Premature Burial?
I remember a movie that sounds like what you describe but the names given are not the ones I remember as it definitely was black & white. We used to watch the 2 Alfred Hitchcock series and I think it was in one of those, but haven't found it yet.
Sorry but it doesn't look too hopeful right now. It seems someone ask this question some years ago as I remember looking for it but did not find it - but same movie I think.

Here's some more:
I hope you find it. There is a movie that I saw in the 1950s that I've been looking for for years. I was pretty sure of the lead actor and part of the title. Haven't found it yet!
Does anyone remember a movie about werewolves where at the end it turns out that most of the town are vampires and when bitten become hybrids and start fighting. The town's people are catatonic at some point as well.
I remember seeing, about 7-8 years ago on TV, a movie about a man being haunted by a ghost. The movie was probably for the late 90s or early 2010. I remember two specific scenes: one, at night, in which the protagonist looks at the window of his apartment, where he sees a shadow of his girlfriend/wife, which then goes away and is followed by another shadow, this time the ghost, which creeps on the ceiling and goes after her. Another one is still at night, after the ghost has transported the protagonist somewhere else, either a memory or the past, and he is in the house of one of his relatives, who shoots a nailgun aimed at the ghost behind him, which then attacks him and leaves him trapped in some sort of plastic wrapped all around him. The protagonist tries to cut him free, but the trapped relative bleeds when he tries to cut it.
I can't seem to find an old horror movie I remember watching when I was a kid. It opens up with a guy on a payphone calling his old friends telling them he just got out of prison. When they were in college or something they got drunk and supposedly killed a lady and buried her body in the woods.
The guy who took the fall for the group had to call everyone together and the four of them had to regroup to excavate and move the body or something. There was some drama and the guy who went to prison for the group got shot or stabbed while they were excavating the body. It ended up being a prank in the end and he actually buried a mannequin instead. That's all I remember. I hope someone knows the title.
There is an old horror movie from the early 2000s that I am trying to find the name of. I know the movie started out with a kid hitting a baseball into this yard and when he goes over to get the ball it's on the porch. But when he tries to run away he keeps getting closer until he is pulled into the house. The plot of the story is this evil house lets 1 person live in order to bring other to the house so it can kill them, the ending has the survivor acting as a realtor to bring people to the house.
I need to know the title of an old horror movie. All I cam remember is that it's a film about a creature that turns kids into stone and at the end of the movie the the creature tries to turn this kid to stone, but the kid's brother turns the creature to stone instead. I'm not sure what year it was from, but I know it's a really old horror film.
Does anyone know the name of an old scary movie (black and white) that had a diving suit that was lying in the corner of a darkened room and begins to inflate all by itself.
My husband saw the movie as a child and it frightened him to death. I would like to find the movie as a gift to him. The movie would probably been produced in the 1950's. Please help. Thank you.

What ever it was, I saw it. I tend to think it was a Twilight Zone or the other one like it. Good luck, if you find out, post it so we will know.
I asked two friends via email who are movie buffs. Will post the answer.
Islandsage has a good point - it may very well be a Twilight Zone.
A man gets his head chopped off coming out of a fox hole and a woman swimming in a pond gets chopped every time she surfaces. It was a black and white movie.
I am trying to get the name of an old horror movie. A group on holiday at a desert house find what looks like old cannon balls in a mine. It turns out they were eggs. One hatches. It is an invisible monster that lashes people to death. They finally escape when the car they try to get away in catches fire and burns the creature. Any help?
