Trivia

In the "elevator sequence", Tommy Dallace is actually wearing his own drivers license on his medical lab coat instead of the standard hospital identification badge. Dallace was initially considered for the lead role in the movie, but was ultimately deemed to be "too good looking" for the part. See more »

Goofs

Several actors' hairstyles change several times throughout the movie. This is the result of a shooting schedule that took several years. See more »

good director- mixed genre
1 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I, like anyone else, never would have heard of this film had i not seen Chris Smith and Sarah Price's brilliant, funny and extremely touching documentary "American Movie". I recently purchased the "American Movie" dvd which contains "Coven", invited over a few other fans of the documentary, and gave it a go. The after disscussion concluded with the notion that had Mark Borschardt tried harder to stick with one genre he could have better concentrated on the story and suspense aspects of the horror or the plot and character development of the drama. He has a very artistic look to his film (context - coffee cup) and i believe his only flaw is a lack of concentration on the characters and story (content - the coffee). i am intrested in the results of "Northwestern".
