Music and Characters
30 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My family was fortunate in finding a VHS copy of this movie many years ago. I always liked the theme music as the Baxters were driving into Silver Hill. Keenan Wynn has alway been a Disney "villian favourite" for Dean Jones to spar with. His gruff exterior is a great sounding board for other characters to work against. I'm watching the movie now as I write this. I always wanted to find the hotel on Google Earth. I was stuck looking at the real Silver Hill, Colorado until I discovered where it was really made. I had hoped the old hotel still existed as I would be a great place to visit on a driving vacation. It is a great movie to inspire one to take a chance in life and try something different. This movie has all the pluses and comedic characters to last and last. One of my favourite scenes is when Michael McGreevey (Wally) blows up the tree stump. "Ahh darn!"
