Trivia

When Judith is working at the reception desk of the skyscraper hotel in Seattle, Washington, a man named "J. J. McMahon" requires her attention. After all, he does "have a reservation". John J. McMahon, aka "J. J. McMahon" is the CEO of Wilshire Court Productions, the filming company that "created" (filmed, shot, designed, etc.) this film. Using his name is a fitting homage to a man that created an amazing company that created such an outstanding movie. This is also the reason that the credits list him as "Executive" rather than "J. J. McMahon". See more »

Goofs

When Elaine first arrives at the City Agencies office, watch the display board which lists the names of all of the departments within the building. While the departments should be listed in numerical order, the office for the Public Transportation department (#615) is inadvertently listed below numbers 669 and 689, rather than before them. Note that the "Transportation" in "Public Transportation" is misspelled. The "T" and the "A" from the word's third syllable are missing, and the word written on the sign actually reads "TRANSPORTION". Also note that while AGING is spelled "Ageing" in Australia and places overseas, the Americanized version of the word is correctly spelled "Aging". While few places in the USA do spell it "Ageing", It might have been assumed that spelling it correctly would confuse certain people as to it's correct pronunciation, and thus it was spelled phonetically...

Yes, this TV movie is a nightmare. Twists and turns actually destroys the movie instead of making it more suspenseful. What has the makings of being a frightful tale of the occult simply seems to go nowhere. Michele Greene is a journalist writing an article on a legendary hotel. A rapid stop on an elevator knocks her out...as she gains composure, she sees a bloody floor and an injured man crying for help on the 13th floor. She has trouble proving what she saw because there supposedly is not a 13th floor. Sounds pretty interesting, but it isn't. Louise Fletcher seems to have stepped out of any of the other movies she's been in. James Brolin's talent is simply wasted. Also in the cast are John Karlen and Michael Melvin. Sorry, it is mundane and forgettable.
