It was during filming this on location in New Zealand that Michael J. Fox made up his mind that he'd had enough of been away from his family making movies and decided to head back to the small screen and star in a new sitcom. This turned out to be his last leading role in a film. See more »
When Lucy is freezing Frank down, the dial she turns is color-coded light blue to dark blue (cold to colder). Moments later, when Dammers turns up, the dial is on a previously non-existent red setting. See more »
What sets out to be a comedy movie with ghosts, (and anyone could be forgiven for thinking this is what it would be given that Michael J Fox has the lead) rapidly becomes a very dark supernatural thriller.
The special effects still look good even by todays standards, and the story is solidly written, good characters and good direction, there is not much to criticise in this movie.
The film itself is one that you should not miss, and certainly not because you think its something that it isn't.
8/10 A surprising film, that has probably been overlooked by too many movie lovers.
