i have faced problem when i use past participle of any transtive verb with noun.
Please tell me following sentence is correct

1- Reporters have seen a group of terrorized people

2- Only Badged policemen were allowed.

3- I made list of previously seen movie


4-They brought wintered animals for grazing
In above all given sentences,i used past participle of verb with noun(like terrorized people,badged policemen etc) to behave as modifying adjective.are all sentences correct.Can i use past participle of any verb with noun if it sounds perfect,or is there any other rule.please solve my problem

1- Reporters have seen a group of terrorized people - Correct
2- Only Badged policemen were allowed. - Correct
3- I made list of previously seen movie - "I made a list of previously seen movies." - You're missing the 'a' article, and movie should be plural.
4-They brought wintered animals for grazing. - Correct
