Trivia

The judge's chamber scenes were filmed in the Senior Common Room of Cochran Bay residence at the University of King's College, Halifax on a Saturday in the fall of 1988. The two short scenes took the whole day to film. (The exterior shot leading into the first scene with the judge is of another Halifax building). See more »

Great film with entertaining spooky elements!
26 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We're not talking an Oscar winner here but it's worth watching! Lots of spooky pirate elements... waaaay before Pirate's of the Carribiean: Dead Man's Chest. A fun movie for both kids and adults alike. I Remember watching as a child and being both scared and entertained. If your a fan of the whole "Pirate" genre that's taken off in recent years, this film is right up your alley. I've not seen it in quite some time but if you can find it at your local video store, check it out. Not really any big name stars but still holds your interest and is pretty kid friendly as well. This movie falls in the realm of Peanut Butter Solution meets the Goonies. (Both films made a huge impact on my adolescence and still stick out when I think back about my favorite 80's kid/teen oriented flicks). George's Island falls in that same realm and still gives me chills when I think about the ghostly pirates that abound in its story.
