    There was this fantasy movie/or series when I was a kid. I don't remember it much, it's really confuzzy (confusing lol :eek:), I just remember I loved it a lot and can't find it. I wanted to rewatch it or even find the books if it's based on a book.

    So, here goes nothing.
    What I remember.
    There was this boy. Maybe a girl too. Maybe just a girl. Kids, anyway.
    And they somehow encounter magical creatures. Some sort of goblins or smaller people that seem like monsters/creatures/something different than humans. And they go into their homes. Realm. Something. Another place. It's all very dark and murky somehow. And there they find adventures, get hidden, maybe they (or just the kid?) are afraid that they'll be eaten by those creatures. Some are friendly. Some are not. There's a connection between these creatures and humans. Maybe they live somewhere underground. Maybe not. I remember a lot of trees.

    A friggin' mess. I really wish I could remember more.

    Any idea?
    Guess not :(

    No idea about when it was made.
    Live action, not animated, if I recall it correctly.

    Dunno about friendly, but it was aimed at children. I found a bit dark at the time, it’s probably only a child’s impression. I used to be scared of everything:cool:

    um, there's A Wrinkle in Time from 2003

    um, as far as I can tell, that's the only live action fantasy film, kinda targeted towards children, that could've been seen as semi scary by a young person. I know the first time I saw the Black Cauldron, it scared me immensely, but now it doesn't have that affect lol

    Hi there! I feel like I may help you! There's this magical website that helped me find a few films from my childhood including The Pagemaster and FernGully: The Last Rainforest which (at some point) I'd started believe they don't exist.
    The website is called WhatIsMyMovie: What is My Movie?
    You basically type in whatever you can remember and voila! I hope it works for you. Let me know!

    Any idea of a rough time that it came out? Was it on VHS? Or dvd? In the 90's? 2000's?

    I recall it was in English and I watched on TV, it was airing on a movies channel. I’d say it was somwehere in the timeline of 1990-2005, but honestly it’s a rough guess. I have no idea! I’ve been searching for it for some time now amd I seem to forget everything about it lol, instead if gaining more knowledge on the matter.

    okay, do you know anything else about it? Any other info that we could search with? Any names, parts of names, notable characters/species, locations in the movie etc?
