Finding a movie/episode I barely remember?

Asked by XOIIO (18259points) March 7th, 2010

I remember a movie where something played a sound and everyone who heard it got all screwed up, and someone who heard her boyfriend die with that sound in the background played it over and over and went insane too. Is this a movie, or an x files episode?

The god’s honest truth, I think I know what movie you’re talking about, but I can’t think of the name. Give me a moment or two and hopefully I will gather up enough bits and pieces of the memories in my brain to give you the title, or hopefully, someone else can.

Sounds kind of like the plot to Strange Brew though I’m pretty sure that’s not what you’re looking for.

Probably not what you’re looking for but there’s a movie called The Signal. It’s about a sound coming from eletronics and it makes people go crazy and kill each other.

@dalepetrie Don’t recall that movie title at all.

@py_sue Nope, But that sounds Good!

A bonus question because I reached my limit, what is the music in the end of this, amazing, brilliant commercial?

@XOIIO – Strange Brew was a comedy from the early 80s that sprung out of the Canadian sketch comedy show “SCTV”, which aired from the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s. It launched the careers of many comedians and comic actors such as John Candy, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas, Andrea Martin, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara and Martin Short. SCTV featured a sketch called the Great White North…about the most famous “episode” of which can be found here. The sketch was about brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie, two Canadian “hosers” who had their own talk show and were obsessed with beer (oh, and they weren’t too bright). The McKenzie’s were played by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis, and from the sketch above came the inspiration for a spin off movie “Strange Brew”.

Strange Brew was about the McKenzie brothers who try to get some free beer with the mouse in a bottle trick, and end up working for the brewery. It’s kind of like a Scooby Doo thing where some evil doers have nefarious plans to take over the brewery, and they plan on doing so by drugging the beer in a way which makes people into subservient zombies when they hear certain keys played on a keyboard. This is the part to which I’m making reference.

So, see Strange Brew, one of the funniest movies of the 80s.

mwahaha (sorry) I think I’ve found it.
It’s a stephen king novel begin made into a miniseries. It might be what you’re looking for. It about a signal that gets sent out over cell phones and makes people go cuckoo.

Maybe? I can’t seem to find anything else and it might sound like an x files ep. Hope it helps

No, thats not it. Damn I’m really pissed that I cant remember it lol.

I might be able to direct you to a place that has more experience. This sounds to me like a horror movie. They’ve got a forum and maybe someone can help. Good luck!
