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 »
Halloween of 1962 fell on a Wednesday, not a Friday the film depicts. See more »
I was more than a bit disappointed with this one after reading the reviews here. It feels like a stretched out ghost story that might be told at a campfire with the cheap cheesy feel you might get from one of those movies shown on Saturday morning. Not the ones that make it to Monster Theater in the afternoon but the ones in the morning for the really little kids. No scarier than Casper the Friendly Ghost with the same cuddly family values to please any squeamish adults that might be watching.
Also it takes itself a bit too seriously and is not quite bad enough to be campy, just staying in the predictable and cheesy range of mediocrity.
It's obvious why this one has remained forgotten.
