 Movie Help!
Hi -

I can only remember the end of this movie. There is a castle that gets set on fire (the hero and 'heroine' come up from the basement of it since it is on fire I think), a woman in a pink nightgown comes out (she is in love with the male lead) and there is fire all around. When she gets closer to him she ends up melting. The movie is in color.....

HELP!

Hmm...this is a tough one for me. All I have to go by is the movie ending and not the whole plot. Can you tell me when you saw the movie? Maybe we can narrow it down a bit.

Oh and welcome to the forum!

Yeah, this is stumping me too Beastball. While it's only a description of the ending, there does seem to be enough detail to get something out of it. It does SEEM familiar. The castle ending has a bit of a "The Terror" sound to it--except that "The Terror" was in B&W and ended with water ratehr than fire (as well as not having any melting woman that I recall). The fire-engulfed ending also reminds me a bit of "Die, Monster, Die", but only because of the fire aspect. I think those two movies can certainly be ruled out.

Didn't at least one (and possibly more) of Roger Corman's "Poe Cycle" movies end with a castle or mansion burning? I know most of them were in color, but haven't seen all of them. One of these movies, or possible a Hammer title seem like they could fit the bill. Best I can come up with at the moment. Anyone else have any ideas?

 Re: Movie Help!
It's very possible The Terror is the movie the OP is looking for. IMDB.com seems to verify that. Most of the elements he describes is here except there is a flood and not a fire as Col. Manning pointed out. A quick look at a portion of one of the reviews at imdb.com:
Quote:
The ending scenes in the collapsing castle were ridiculously low budget with brown foam "bricks" falling everywhere only to float in the water, and the fade-change of Ilsa at the end into a melted wax dead body effect...that was just cheesy beyond belief, even for that day and age of film effects. The ocean waves crashing effects were also way overplayed and poorly done and the matt paintings of the castle sets were pretty bad too.


Here is the trailer:

 Re: Movie Help!
Oh yeah, I totally forgot that it was in color! I've gotten so used to seeing the washed-out cheap public doamin DVDs of the movie that I just kind of "felt" like it was B&W. Now that I'm reminded of the color I recall the red military jacket that Jack Nicholson wore. Completely forgot about the melting woman too. Guess it's time to watch it again!

Could it be "House of Wax" with Vincent Price? That place went up in flames at the end and I am sure there were plenty of melting figures...

Hmmm.. Maybe The Gorgon. I seem to remember it ending in a fire.
