Did You Know?


The screenplay for "The Attic Expeditions" was written in 1991 to be a completely different film. When director Jeremy Kasten, a recent film school graduate, was working as a production assistant on low-budget straight-to-video movies, he was given the opportunity to associate produce one such film called Witchcraft IV: The Virgin Heart (1992). The writer of the film was late turning in his script so Kasten called his writing partner Rogan Marshall in Mississippi and asked if he was up to the task. Marshall had five days to come up with something. When Kasten got the script one day early, he knew he wanted it to be his directorial debut and decided not to turn it in. See more »


Near the end when Trevor and Faith are making love, you can see the actor is wearing a flesh-tone g-string. As they are sitting and talking in the follow scene, you can see the "string" part on his hips. See more »


Ronald: Trevor, you got to get me out of here, I don't know what's happening to me. I can't tell you who I am because my can't remember a damn thing. My mind is all fucked up in this damn puppet head, but I swear to you as God is my witness, I am not this guy's hand!

"thinking man's horror film"
14 March 2003 | by (Godzilla Manor) – See all my reviews

The above tag line is a tip-of-the-hat nod to a previous IMDB user, and I agree. Seriously, I have never read such a deep divide in viewers over a horror movie! I have to wonder about people who call this movie "boring." What do audiences want from horror films today? There is real fear, dread and (most importantly) disorienting. I must agree that many younger minds with short attention spans will not enjoy this movie, but if you were intrigued by 12 Monkeys, Memento, Eraserhead, and other movies you HAD TO WATCH AND THINK ABOUT, I highly recommend this movie. Don't like loose ends? Tough! Want everything explained? Out of luck! But if you read Phillip K. Dick, H.P. Lovecraft or William Hope Hodgson, you will be pleased with this highly literate movie. I am looking forward to more from the director.
