Okay guys, I went through your movies and looked for some while I was looking for mine, but no success.
But here are some of mine:
1. I saw this movie when I was extremely young, so it was probably a really early 80's or late 70's movie. I just remember people trapped in a house and lions were all around it and trying to get in. People got eaten. Then they built a cage out of materials in the house, I think one looked like an iron gate, and they got inside and walked it out to safety. I have had this movie in my head for 20 years.
2. This is an old horror movie, again early or mid 80's, but could have been made late 70's. It started with kids at a high school and the popular kids were in gym class and they left to mess with some nerd's chemistry stuff. When the nerd went in and started working it exploded and he burned up, perhaps supposedly died, i don't know. Fast forward to what I think was a class reunion and the only people there were the kids responsible for the accident. They go on to party anyway, but then they all begin to die off one by one. Great stuff.
3. This one I have very little details about. I used to watch a lot of scary movies as a kid at my grandmas. I'm pretty sure it was when FOX was first starting out and they'd play scary movies during the day on saturday or sunday. The theme song for their scary movie hours was cut from Led Zeppelin's, Whole Lot of Love. Anybody else remember scary movie days on FOX with the screams from Whole Lot of Love? Anyway, it was on a ship or cargo ship and I think people were being murdered. The only thing I really remember is someone going overboard on a net that was on the side. Don't remember if she/he was alive or dead.
4. This one was same era again, one of the old race across the country cannon baller type movies. I think there was that fast talking, skinny nerd with the big glasses from all the 80's movies. For some reason I think he had a twin and they rode mopeds. There was also a bunch in a van. I remember they had to find clues for the race and as they were going up a glass elevator at a hotel they saw the clue written in the chairs and tables outside, probably by the pool.
Some others I was thinking of, but found while searching.
Anybody remember the movie where the kids build a spaceship using junk. There was a tv and one of those carnival ride things. And somehow they were sent from space or built themselves a forcefield that allowed them to go to space. It had a dorky River Phoenix in it. It was called the Explorers.
The other one I was going to describe had a rat boy in it. I found it. It's called Ratboy.
The other involved a group of kids that fought all the major monsters. They had silver bullets for werewolves, etc. I found out it was called Monster Squad.
A couple other movies I already remembered, but stumbled across either way.
Anybody remember Labryinth. It had David Bowie and a very young Jennifer Connely. Now that was a fucked up movie. And similar to that was Dark Crystal.
Since I was so young, none of these movies will probably be good anymore, but damn it I want to know anyway.
