Filmed in my tiny hometown
28 September 2006 | by (Lancaster, Pa.) – See all my reviews

The movie was pretty bad, but I'm from a small town in Virginia called Poquoson, so it made news in the area when they filmed the second part of "Vanishing Son" there.

I remember watching it and thinking, I was just "there" (Messick Point, where much of the movie was filmed) a few days earlier for a fireworks show on the 4th. The road at the end of the movie is where I directed traffic out of the lot and back on to Messick Road.

Pretty cool to have "Al" from Quantum Leap in the are. That blue boathouse is a relic and hasn't been used in nearly a decade. Hurricane Isabel reshaped the landscape a bit.

As far as the movie goes, it continues on from the first one and as a made for TV movie, isn't too too bad, but it's made for TV, thus can only get a 5 max.
