    Default Need "Movie Help" From The Board...

    I just worked the end of my trip back home from Paris today... At one point we were ****-kicked in some serious bad weather... I had joked with the captain that it reminded me of the movie with the "gremlins" tearing at the aircraft, because there was so much lightning/rain/turbulence (flashing almost continuously)... Man, it was a seriously ****ty ride!...

    ... My question is this: What was the name of this movie?

    It was the one where John Lithgow was the actor, and was a freaked-out passenger during a rough ride thru a storm, and saw "gremlins" ripping apart the engines/aircraft... He really freaked-out and was subdued by other passengers...

    ... Anyone able to help me out with the name of this movie? I think it was a compiliation of stories, but can't remember for sure... It's no big deal, but it's just one of those things that bothers you till you find-out the answer...

    Sounds like the movie adaptation of "Nightmare at 20,000 feet" from the Twilight Zone movie. THe original has William Shatner as the passenger.

    Thanx guys.... I couldn't remember it at the time.... Much appreciated!

    ..... ****, it was actually pretty funny when we both looked out amongst the lightening to see if any gremlins were out there.... Ha Ha!

    Yeah, the remake with John Lithgow was the better version.

    Funny that you brought this up,NKy.I've been doing TONS of research lately into this movie and the Vic Morrow incident.That accident was all on that ******bag John Landis.****er should have hung for what he did and got off with a slap on the wrist.

    Yeah,it really did and does suck.Morrow was a great actor that died in a terrible accident.I don't know why I watched that footage.Guess I felt that I had to see first hand what I've always heard about.Sickening.

    I remember bits and pieces about it. Just going on memory, I think it was a helicopter stunt gone wrong and then I remember a lawsuit.... I remember hearing it on a news report at the time it happened. It was such huge news. No one could believe the accident and people talked about some curse..I dunno, its hard to go on just what I can recall back then. A lot of controversy but then I heard about a trial and then I heard nothing. The world was a lot different back then compared to now. There wasn't a source of instant info.
