When Mary loses the game and Melissa fills in the missing letters, she fills in the N on "want", despite the fact that both Ns were previously filled in and that the N in "fun" is still filled in.

Good clean flick for Halloween.
29 September 2001 | by (Elkhart, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Being an avid fan of horror movies both clean and strong in content, I would have to say this is probably my favorite clean horror movie. Some mild death scenes, some small sexual situations but no nudity whatsoever, mostly clean language. I highly advise this movie for any school related halloween party all except the really young ones like kindergarten through 3rd grade and I say this because the movie co-starts Levar Burton and most kids will recognize him from "The Reading Rainbow". Thats the only negative I warn about this movie. Other than that, it is good clean fun. Excellent story. And definently a must see for any Halloween fan for it has monsters galore(think a softer version of Waxwork.
