How about:

"Midnight Aida"
"Three Strands of Scarlet"
"Day of a Thousand Needles"
"Teresa's Castle of Terror"
"The Creature on Black Lugana"

And then there's that classic novel, "The Bill on the Floss," -- a horror show indeed! :-)

Hm....that movie needs a new title to fit better. How about "Invasion of the Pattern Stitchers"?

Other stitch/SF/horror flicks:

"It Came From The Bottom of the Stash Closet" (if you'd seen my stash closet recently, you'd know there is intelligent life in it somewhere...)

"Project: UFO" (should need no explanation unless you are one of those weird people who actually *finish* everything you start -- which might make you a....)

"The Stepford Stitchers" (people who stitch 200 stitches/hour, NEVER make mistakes, ALWAYS have ALL the floss they need for a project and ALWAYS finish everything they start)

"Frogs" (well, there *was* a movie called that, but I envision a perfectionist who has worked for years on a TW and was *almost* finished and realized everything was OFF BY TWO SQUARES and has to, well you know....)

"The Amazing Colossus Visa Bill" (what DH sees if we're not careful after a particularly stimulating S.E.X session!) or the related...

"The Incredible Shrinking Wallet" (different take, same reult)

"Little Shop of Horrors" (what an otherwise doting DH might regard the local stitch shop as after above episodes)

"I Come in Piece(s)" (about an alien needlework kit which never seems to *quite* have everything all together)

I think that's enough for now, don't you? :)

Why, no...no, I don't! Lessee now...

"Phantoms"--you know, those fuzzies that are left after you frog your TW.

"Good Will Hunting"--what happens when somebody posts a "Please, I gotta have this chart!" request

And finally...

<Sinclair voice> "One stitcher wrapped in twenty million skeins of tangled flower thread...all alone in the night. Our last, best hope for (finished) pieces...the name of the place is Perle Cotton 5."

Nah! How about...

'Perle 9 from Outer Space', a campy movie about the introduction of perle cotton 9 into the perle 8 supply, so as to make everyone's work just a little off...

and

'Project X', where someone tries to teach monkeys to cross-stitch...

Let's see if we can keep this going! How about:

"Stitch Trek" To boldly shop where no DH has shopped before. (with a liberal helping of S.E.X. thrown in to keep Mr. Rodenberry(sp?) happy.)

"Stitch Trek Voyager" Same as above, but where you cross an ocean in the process and become the local "alien".

Naaah... how about...

"Swamp Thing" -- Trish's silk gauze project after it came out of the pond...

"The Day of the TWs" -- the world is taken over by leafy green things stitched in ONE THOUSAND FORTY-SEVEN shades of blended greens...

"The Blob" -- Skeins of DMC flower thread take over the world -- each small skein turns into a small tangle, and expands into an ever bigger tangle, until it consumes the stitcher alive!

"Evil Thread": A stitcher named Ashley goes up to a cabin in the woods to do some stitching, but finds that her thread seems to have taken on a life of its own. The sequel just involves the foolish stitcher going back to that cabin again, and the "evil thread" even takes over her stitching hand! The sequel to that involves medieval tapestry stitching, I think. (Kudos to the Bruce Campbell fans who get the lame joke.)

Oooh... Or how about:

"Night of the Living Thread"- A stitcher-turned zombie from lack of sleep cannot stop stitching. Forced to do 'just one more stitch' she is still in her stitching chair furiously stitching away when the sun comes up.
