Trivia

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 »

Goofs

In the archery scene, the driver's window of Phil's 1961 Chevrolet Parkwood station wagon is clearly rolled down at 01:34:51 before Frankie gets into the car. Moments later at 01:35:21, as Phil is menacing Frankie from outside, the window is suddenly closed. See more »

I enjoy this movie every time I watch it!
7 February 2008 | by (Detroit,MI USA) – See all my reviews

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.
