I saw this film once late at night (or early in the morning) on television when I was in High School. One thing that struck me about this film that was different to so many others was its ability to captivate me even at that hour, which is generally the type of braindead time usually reserved only for the watching of 'Beavis and Butthead Do America' or 'Dude Where's My Car?'. The fact that at two in the morning ANY film could have a riveting story line absolutely amazed me.
While 'The Search for Bridey Murphy' is largely a fantasy, it is a very interesting one and the end leaves you wanting more. I urge anybody and everybody to search for 'The Search for Bridey Murphy' at all their local video stores. It is definitely worth a watch.
