Craig R. Baxley was amazed by the rock scene, but Stephen King's favourite effects shot was when the courtyard statue pulled her face off. They wanted to keep the effects grounded, but in reality 350 visual were used overall. The library floor effect was achieved with the actress wading through a concealed pool, wearing a scotch guard so it wouldn't get wet. The temperature was reportedly 30 degrees. See more »

There are so many of King's books that didn't go over well as movies. And this one, which was never even a book, did really well. If you have a Friday night and a lot of popcorn to kill, this is a decent one to settle down with. A lot of the actors are unknown, but pull this off well. I like how it's not just a group of people going to spend the night in a haunted house and win money and fame shtick. (i.e. the new House on Haunted Hill) I also liked how all the people who went had a unique specialty in the paranormal/supernatural. Also, it has the regular blend of characters you love to hate, ones who are suspicious, and the adorable ones that you hope don't make the mistake of investigating unknown noises in the middle of the night alone.
