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 »

The Child Of Glass (1979)

I remember renting this movie at the local video store as a child, and I remember that it scared the crap out of me, but I've watched it again and I loved it. This movie was so good, I wish they would put it out on DVD. I got hold of the movie on video and it was hard to find. This movie was great, and the scene where Inez dances with Alexander was really sad. This was a great movie, that is spooky and happy. I recommend this to children ages ten to thirteen, it might scare younger kids. I also recommend The Watcher In The Woods if you like this movie. I give it 10/10.
