My Mom was Elise
11 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Joan Mortimer, who played Elise is my mother and I am still scared of the Haunted House. I was trumatized as a young kid when my father showed it at a birthday party for my mother. Imagine your mother at 18 before your eyes when you are barely 10 . All kidding aside, it is sometimes fun to see the movie today... but that teenager on screen was not the mother I grew up with! Affectionately Foos A.K.A. the son who lost his inheritance!
