Ok, here's a tough one. Does anyone remember a movie trailer from the 1970s that showed an image of an x-ray skull -- scary enough in itself -- and then showed what appeared to be something dripping from the eye socket. Looking closer it was actually a woman wearing a billowing dress. Totally freaky image and I can't remember what movie it was for ... some horror flick for sure. Anyone remember this?
I'm trying to figure out a movie title. The movie was set in Australia, where a guy is traveling by himself and meets a girl, falls in love, and she drugs him and when he wakes up he is married to her and living in a commune. The thing is no one ever leaves the commune, and they make dog food there. I've searched netflix, and imdb. Now hits. It had a goofy two word title. I just cannot remember it. Can someone help me?

Can you split an .iso (DVD burn image) file in two? I've been ripping all of my Netflix movies into .iso files before realizing that my burning software (Nero burning rom) doesn't split an image file (.iso) that is larger than 4.7gig into two smaller files. All of these movies require dual layer blank DVDs, but since I have a 100 pack of blank DVDs I would like to try to see if I could split the movies to 2 different discs rather than buy the larger blanks.

Help me find this movie. Years ago I saw a film clip with a great drum solo. I think it was Louis Prima conducting Sing, Sing, Sing. In the middle, the drummer, I'm sure it was Gene Krupa, starts his solo and doesn't stop, so the band members all get up and go out for a smoke. After a few minutes they all come back in & start playing again. It's a great solo. Does anyone know the name of that movie?
