The movie that doesn’t exist and the Redditors who think it does
 
In the early Nineties, roughly around 1994, a now 52-year-old man named Don ordered two copies of a brand new video for the rental store his uncle owned and he helped to run.

“I had to handle the two copies we owned dozens of times over the years,” says Don (who wishes to give his first name only). “And I had to watch it multiple times to look for reported damages to the tape, rewind it and check it in, rent it out, and put the boxes out on display for rental.”

In these ways, the film Don is speaking of is exactly like the hundreds of others in his uncle’s shop. In one crucial way, however, it is not. The movie that Don is referring to doesn’t actually exist.

The already existing thread and the Snopester who doesn't think it does! :fish:

Dammit, I know I looked and it wasn't there. Clearly I have jumped to a different reality.

How weird... This is not just one person, who seems to remember this movie. But we've got several different people telling similar stories, which makes it hard to just ignore the phenomenon.

However, I have some times read about similar experiences, where several different people remember the same specific scene from a movie, but there is no proof that such a scene ever existed. Of course, that is not quite as extreme as a whole movie not existing. But I feel that it's the same thing has happened here...

I have quoted you in the other thread, Furienna, because I wanted to reply to part of your post but thought we shouldn't have two threads.
