Sixth Sense?

Posted by: Mike at November 9, 2004 11:47 AM

It reminds me of Sixth Sense but I don't know why. I remember a scene with a bathroom but I'm not sure if this is the same bathroom.

Yea, I would also have to say Sixth Sense. I think this is the scene where Donnie (or Mark?) Wahlberg is in the bathroom.

A movie where the viewer has to see a Wahlberg in the loo? Glad I missed that one!

I was thinking Sixth Sense as well, and I never saw it. Well, I saw a bit of it, but not the whole thing. I certainly didn't see a Wahlberg. But the feel of the scene depicted reminds me of what I saw in the movie.

hmmmmm it does resemble sixth sense. but i'm pretty sure that's not it, looks too old of a movie to me. i'm gonna venture a guess and say the Exorcist, but that's just a hunch.

I don't remember a bathroom in "The Exorcist." That lamp doesn't look very '70s, either.

James, you got me.

You guys are extremely perceptive. However, I will not confirm your guesses yet. I think another image in an hour or so is warranted.

Who knew a bathroom in a movie could give such a strong impression?

Posted by: James at November 9, 2004 12:24 PM

Okay. The biggest clue here is the faded cross on the wall. On the surface it indicates that a cross hung there for a LONG time, and then was taken down. Why?

Well there are many possible reasons but the most dramatic (and often used in movies) would be someone of longstanding religious conviction that has lost their faith.

So I suspect one of the important characters in this movie has lost their faith.

That decorative window in the bathroom and the furniture in the foreground suggests a farmhouse to me. Something about it has a "country" look.

The most recent picture I can think of about a person in a farmhouse who lost their faith would be "Signs" with Mel Gibson. Is it Signs?

If not... I dunno? One of the "Omen" movies? Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Need to see more pix.

I'm trying to remember the scene in 6th sense that everyone is referring to. IS that the scene where the naked guy comes out of the bathroom and shoots Bruce Willis?

I'm pretty sure that scene took place at night. This shot looks like a daytime shot. Plus the bathroom doesn't quite look right for that scene as it plays in my memory (admittedly fuzzy... only seen it once.)

Posted by: Chuck S. at November 9, 2004 12:34 PM

I think you are right Chuck, Bruce Willis was shot at night and this does look like a daytime shot.

Posted by: Sara at November 9, 2004 12:44 PM

Yes, definitely a loss of faith involved. My other guess for the mood and lighting is Frequency, that movie with Dennis Quaid.

Posted by: Mike at November 9, 2004 12:50 PM

Another reason a person might take the cross off of a wall would be to protect against a vampire or other undead/demonic creature. I haven't seen many such movies, alas.

Posted by: Julie at November 9, 2004 12:51 PM

Oh, of course. You're right, Chuck. That's where I saw the cross before... Signs.

Posted by: Mike at November 9, 2004 12:51 PM

Here's an interesting question. Why were so many people immediatly drawn to a different M. Night. Shyamalan film?

Posted by: James at November 9, 2004 1:35 PM

Ok, I change my guess. I think it's the movie where the kid is hearing noises through a baby monitor and climbs on the roof of a car to put the baby monitor closer to the sky to get a better signal. Is that Signs?

Posted by: Sara at November 9, 2004 1:38 PM

I guess it's a Shyamalanesque scene. There's something creepy about the shot, and it's not just because of the missing cross/crucifix.

Posted by: Julie at November 9, 2004 1:54 PM

HAH! Now that I have seen the second image, I stand by my initial guess.

This movie is Signs.

The kid is holding the baby monitor up because he gets better reception. They were picking up alien transmissions on the baby monitor.

Posted by: Chuck S. at November 9, 2004 2:37 PM

It's not "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane." Too modern. And no alien (benefit of coming back after more pix have been added). I love that movie. "Ya didn't eatcha dinna, Blanche!"

That lamp is too shiny to be country, and this doesn't have a '70s feel, so it's not The Omen (another good bad movie). Was Lee Meriweather the woman Damien knocks over the bannister as he zooms by on his trike?

I still have no clue.

Posted by: Patti M. at November 9, 2004 2:38 PM

Chuck nailed it. :)

But I think it's wild that people were drawn to the Sixth Sense.

Yes, it's "Signs." It's a movie I like, despite the fact it only has a few things to recommend it.

Posted by: James at November 9, 2004 3:42 PM

Never saw it, but with the guessing, it does suggest that Shamalama's scenes have a unique feel to them.
