magical feel
11 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to rent this movie over and over again as a kid. It has an eerie feel which I was very attracted to. But then again, I was a weird kid. It's sort of like a toned down Tim Burton film.....magical, abnormal things go on against the backdrop of a normal, seemingly boring town. The cinematography is cool; it's set in a small town in Arizona during the summer. Although it's definitely a kid's movie, there's almost something adult about it. It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I haven't forgotten it during all of these years. I've been trying to locate a copy of it (it's not on DVD, only VHS) to buy. The only other similar movie I can think of is a movie directed by a Michael Davis called Beanstalk (1994). I loved that one too.
