Goofs

When Frankie is praying in front of a picture of Jesus, towards the right there is what looks like a toy dinosaur. But in the following shot the dinosaur has disappeared. This is an apparent goof resulting from the compression of distance by the telephoto lens used to achieve a closeup at 49:17 where it appears that the picture of Jesus and the statuette of Godzilla are side-by-side when the statuette is actually some distance behind the picture as can be seen at 49:26 where the statuette is behind the picture at the left edge of the wide screen frame.

Freaky and Great Little Flick
24 July 2005 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I bought the DVD last year when it was limited, as i loved this movie as a kid.

Now, its coming back out on DVD again under the MGM Company, so i suggest people to buy this movie. Don't let this sleeper hit slip away again before the DVDs get sold out again.

The movie has a scary feeling to it, sort of like The Midnight Hour or The Monster Squad (which wasn't scary really) but i hope you know what i mean when you see it.

For those of you who have seen it, get voting on here too, it deserves more than 6.7!!
