The windows were sealed and the doors were also. I think there was a strange logo in places where they tried to get out like the doors. I believe they turned on the tv and the same logo was the only thing that came through on any of the channels. They tried to escape and failed each attempt. Toward the end they entered the attic in hopes of getting out through there but as they dismantled the roof they learned that they couldn't get out that way either. I believe the space above the roof had the same logo on it when they cut through. If I remember correctly that logo was something like "ZZ"

The second program is one about mannequins. From what I remember the mannequins were evil. They murdered several people. In the end, after a murder, they had taken one victim's eyes and placed them in one of the mannequins eyes.
Last one might be the first episode of the show Friday the 13.

Sorry, it’s not Friday the 13, that was just a possessed doll.

Maybe it’s the movie Tourist Trap tho.

Need help IDing movie

Hi everyone. I don't have much to go on and I've been googling for a few hours and have come up with nothing. What I recall is this movie would have been late 70s most likely. There is an old man who is dying and he calls a bunch of people to a location, maybe his house, and he's going to select a successor or heir. The main actress is maybe his assistant or something? Bad things happen and eventually the young woman is standing next to the old guys deathbed (which has gauzy curtains so you don't see him) and suddenly his hand reaches out and he puts his ring on her finger declaring her the heir. Any suggestions? I feel like, at least at the time, the lead actress was well known. I tried Karen Black but didn't see what I was looking for on her IMDB. I feel like she was a brunette, maybe looked like Kate Jackson?

Sounds like The Legacy, from 1978, starring Katherine Ross.

Both of these sound good. Added to my watch list.

Hey. Newbie here, with a movie ID request.

Hi all, I'm a newb. Just joined up. Big fan of the classic stuff; Exorcist, Shining, The Thing (Carpenter) Scanners etc. (I guess those last two are sci-fi )

I am hoping someone will be able to help me out with I'Ding a movie that somehow partly seared itself onto my brain, but I can't remember its name.

All I remember:
A hot dark-haired woman attacked in the bath by a Wolf-Mutant-Beast type thing??

And no, it's not Slither btw.
