Two versions of the movie were shot. The first in early 1997 which featured the director Ron Bonk (acting under Chris Irvine) cast as the cameraman Rudy Reynolds with Debbie Rochon, Thomas Minlon, Tina Krause and Jerry O'Sullivan. The movie was re-shot in 1999 with a slew of different actors of Jason Reed, Lisa Chelezna, Chrissy Frick, and Bob Fullenbaum in a re-telling of the same story. Both versions were directed and photographed by Ron Bonk. See more »
Once in a while, a movie comes, when you are just tired of all that Hollywood horror non-sense, when the line between horrific and ridicule is erased by an incredible amount of gore that does nothing for the sake of the film, or the absence of gore in order to get a "PG-13 SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER" label, at that point in my life is when STRAWBERRY ESTATES came into my life. SE tells the story of a professor, a psychic,a student and a filmmaker that trap themselves in an abandoned hospital to record any paranormal activity,then they find out that the hospital is nothing but a gateway to hell, all of this made like a documentary(what we are watching is the tape that the police found in the hospital, the only thing they found). The reasons this movie change my life:1)it was made maybe with the budget of a "fast food" employee salary check, and still it is amazing how good and scary this movie came to be 2) the actors,once the movie start you know, are no career actors and still their performances are convincing to the point when you see them as real people(this thanks to the documentary effect as well) and 3) well, you have to give yourself to this movie and consider this things in mind before watching,THIS IS A VERY LOW BUDGET PICTURE so don't expect amazing visual effects or famous Oscar-winning faces and you have to watch it with the proper atmosphere, a dark room with the least noise possible.The "documentary technique" , the one that make a classic out of Nigth of the Living Dead and was exploited in the Blair Witch Prject is used here very efficiently. But don't take my word for it, watch it yourself and kill your cow.
Favorite scene: The Ax-man in the hall. hair rising.
