This has been bothering me for the longest time.

OK, so, a long time back I saw this Swedish/Norwegian/Finnish movie about a man who worked for some sort of kitchen appliance company, who was sent to do research about men in their kitchens. He is assigned to this grumpy old man (who, of course, he later befriends), and sits in the corner of his kitchen in a really big chair and takes notes on him. The poster of the movie showed the researcher in his chair.

Does anyone know the name of this movie?

I am looking for the titles of these horror films I used to watch as a kid on Saturday thriller double features starting at noon on Saturdays in the late 70s /early 80s (they also showed movies such as Daughters of Darkness and Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things). The first one has campers being killed off by a hag who dwells in the woods- the end has the campers making a booby-trap for the woman where once triggered it impales her with a VERY large wooden stake that goes through her middle. Also at the end you see her muddy face for the first time as she dies.
The second one I can remember very little details of except that it involves women being put into a cage and dumped multiple times in water (at a waterfront) if they are believed to be witches by the townsfolk…I think all the characters were dressed like Quakers so the setting might be a few hundred years ago.

Last one- this was on cable in the 80s- it has at the very end people running out of a collapsing building and also shows a creature with blue skin, maybe purple, in a grim reaper outfit and a forehead that looks as though it had a rapidly beating heart underneath it.

If anyone could give me some suggestions I would be very appreciative, I have been looking for these titles for years.



Well, since I live in a crappy town and have to wait for independent stuff to come out on DVD. I finally saw Mean Creek. I didnt know what to really think about it when I read the back of the cover it reminded me of Bully( a great film in itself). When I watched it I was so suprised. I guess it was something about the innocence of all the kids that made it so appealing and the ending was just so tragic. I dont know if anyone has seen it. Its out today (I got to see it early since I work at Blockbuster) but it really was a great movie.
