Did You Know?


While most of the setting is authentic, the production company could not find a suitable crypt in the Danville, Kentucky cemetary, so the climactic sequence was shot in a fake tomb constructed in the actual graveyard. The phony mausoleum became a local attraction after the film aired. See more »

This one always makes me cry
25 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great ghost story. It stayed with me from the time I first saw it as a child. I just loved it. A little french girl's ghost on an old spooky southern plantation. This was based on a book called "The Ghost Belonged to Me". After watching this film, I bought the book and it's sequel, which were just as good as the movie. If you're looking for a good ghost story, this is it.
