Poll Suggestion: IMDb Poll Board: Inscrutable Titles

When you — for the very VERY FIRST TIME — read/listened to the title (ONLY the title, NOT the plot), which one of these titles names made you think "What the h*** are they talking about???"

Again: the VERY FIRST TIME you acknowledged the title! Not the story.

In your understanding, which title is the most intriguing, discombobulating, cryptographic one?

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls089540403/

If you wish to contribute to the concept: MAX 5 titles

I'm confused. Is this a "spin-off" or a "reboot"? :P

That was mine too, it is a dark Mexican film that was released when I was a kid and I was starting to be interested in theatre listings.

The curiosity drove me to pest my parents until they took me to watch the movie, I can't recall anything about it now

Now I can tell you it is a word that comes from the huichol language, spoken by one of the native people of Mexico.

You may wish to consider a film from 1976.  "Voyage of the Damned" is not a horror movie or a movie about a ship that sinks and everyone dies.

It is a film about a shipful of Jews that are basicall put on a cruise ship and sent away from Nazi Germany.  They either flee the country of go to the internment camps.  They try visiting several countries (including The United States and Mexico and some European countries) and no one lets them get off of their ship or gives them asylum.  They end up having to return to Germany.

This is based on a true story, by the way.

If you haven't seen it, it is a good watch.

The Power of the Dog ... sounds fishy, somehow. Especially when I saw it!

Never Rarely Sometimes Always ... after the movie it's clear.

THX 1138 ... what?

@Breumaster​ thanks, all added. There are a lot of free slots.

The Shining, indeed. It took me a lot of time to research and understand the meaning of this title. Thanks to the Internet...

When you first laid eyes or ears on these titles (strictly the titles, not the plot), which one left you utterly befuddled, making you go, "What the heck does that even mean?"

Remember, we're talking about your initial reaction to the title, not the storyline.

Out of these options, which title is the most perplexing, confusing, or downright cryptic?

If you'd like to participate, share the top 5 titles that left you scratching your head for the very first time.
