The house seen in the movie in real life doesn't and never actually did exist. The film-makers could not find a suitable mansion to use for the film so at a cost of around $200,000, the production had a Victorian gothic mansion facade attached to the front of a much more modern dwelling in a Vancouver street. This construction was used for the filming of all the exteriors of the movie's Carmichael Mansion. The interiors of the haunted house were an elaborate group of interconnecting sets built inside a film studio in Vancouver. See more »
During the second part of the séance when the metal flute object is in the center of the table, the camera's point of view descends the staircase and walks into the room. The shadow of the camera operator is visible on the floor to the left, just after entering the room. See more »
The first time I saw this film I was playing sick to stay home from school and watched this by myself. It really freaked me out and I wouldn't leave the living room until people got home. I was 11 or 12 years old and wish films still scared me as much because it is so much fun to be fascinated by them. In re-watching the film, it still gives me the chills. Damn, George turn on some lights! There are some great scenes in this film and the supernatural mystery is excellent. There is an awesome séance scene that is quite creepy and the revisiting of this scene later in the film is insightful, as well as disturbing. The actors in this film give excellent performances and the directing is equally superb. Anybody who really enjoys ghost stories should see this film.
