Trivia

The movie was inspired by "The Devil's Platform" from the 1974 television series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." However, producers could not get permission to continue the storyline and opted for a new one. Also, Tom Skerritt was in talks with Ridley Scott to do "Alien" and was unavailable for the movie, so producers offered the role to Richard Crenna. See more »

Goofs

When Lucky is chasing Betty through the house, upstairs a door closes behind the two of them. When the door closes you can see a crew member through the crack of the door shutting it behind them as they enter. See more »

Not totally a Dog...
4 May 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not only does this film have one of the great movie titles, it sports the third teaming of 70s child actors Ike Eissenman and Kim Richards. I seem to remember this film being broadcast Halloween week back in '78 going against Linda Blair in Stranger in our House. I missed it on the first run choosing to see the other film. Later, on repeat, I saw I made the right choice. The movie is not really bad, but, really lacks any chills or surprises. Although, I did like the scene where Richard Crenna shoots the family dog to no avail.
