the other night as I was dropping off to snooze, I was thinking of this one particular scene from a film and it's driving me mad trying to remember the name of the movie.

It's a scene in a hospital corridor and one of the characters (can't remember if they are male or female) is walking down the corridor when three nuns float towards and past them. Very creepy, but can't remember if the film is a horror, a thriller or what.

As far as I can recall the character walking down the corridor may be on their way to visit a sick or dying relative/partner in the hospital, so the nuns might well be some sort of vision.

I'm looking on the Internet Movie Database but so far haven't found anything....

Ring any bells?

I know the one you mean The nuns arent ghosts but they float along the floor.

But I can't think which film.....Twelve Monkeys maybe?

I've not seen Twelve Monkeys so it can't be that one.

Pretty sure it wasn't a dream!

What about 5th Element? I'm sure it's a Bruce Willis film....

Grr now it's going to bug me as well!

/Edit yes could be Sixth Sense, got the DVD so I can check tonight.

The Exorcist III has floating nuns in it IIRC - I saw it about 12 years ago, though - have a vivid memory of this nun flashing by with a HUGE pair of medical shears, about to decapitate someone...

Are you sure - 8mm is about porno/snuff/missing girlies goings on that PI Nic Cage investigates after being given the task to determine the origin of a video tape found in a safe at some posh old dears house. seen it a few times but can't remember floating nuns. Also stars Joachim Phoenix...IIRC
