On the DVD commentary, director Frank LaLoggia says that he got the idea for using the song "Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?" (which is a significant plot element in the movie) from hearing it in the Eddie Cantor movie Roman Scandals (1933). Actually, this song does not appear in the Cantor film; it was written for the musical Sitting Pretty (1933). Both "Roman Scandals" and "Sitting Pretty" were released in 1933. See more »
Director Frank LaLoggia mentions that in the strangling scene (at around 1h 40 mins), the cord was already around her neck and was hidden by her position and the lighting to achieve the effect that this man was evil to the point of almost being a spiritual presence so he could do anything.

I just don't know what it is but this movie is like an "Old Friend" to my older sister and I. We always watch it together and now my 6 1/2 yr old watches it with us. I think because it's "scary,but not too scary" and YES we always end up singing that song for day's after we watch it.
When ever we ask people "have you seen this movie" they are alway glad we told them about it..it's one of those movies you either never heard of, or never thought to watch and once you do your glad you did.
I love the Halloween theme and the "Little Sleepy Town" feeling you get in this movie. Grandma & Grandpa are by far my favorite's in this film, There is such a "Loving Closeness" between them.
It's just a good "anytime" movie.
