The mansion that was in 9 movies, was one of the movies Burnt Offerings with Karen Black? I believe Filmed in 1976.

It's also an anagram for TALKING HEADS.

Now, the same image is worth another point if you can Name that Movie.

Warning: this is difficult because the scene is shown for only a couple of seconds, but the Eno connection caught my eye.

I'll give a free hint (no research yet): it's recent.

Answer:

Spoiler!

Nice job. A little Thela Hun Ginjeet action going on there with the scramble.

Crap. Just when I thought I was in the clear, back to the movie I don't have a clue about.

Until V'ger returns and confirms, I can tell you that Burnt Offerings is correct.

No, but this film, like that one, is recent enough to be still at Redbox. (Not in Canada? Sorry.)

There ought to be a word for a certain scale of plot holes and implausible story elements. Especially as this is not an action hero vehicle, but a terrorist thriller based (more or less) closer to the real world.

Still, if you are a Jovovich fan: when is Leeloo not in trouble?

If you are a Brosnan fan: well, he's sinister but doesn't really bring any character to the character.

Modicen - Burnt Offerings is correct! 1 point. Coming to Blu-ray October 6 from Kino Lorber.

dledmo - Sorry, not Absolute Power. 90's Clint, though.

The Sidney Lumet movie stars Sharon Stone, and is best left forgotten.

Looks like something that might be in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Josh Z - no, still not MITGOGAE (NorthSky guessed that title on page 215 )

I think the fact that's it's a Clint film with no guesses says something. I watched it shortly after video release remember almost nothing of it.
