Did You Know?


When Annabelle rides her bike to the funeral home in the middle of the night she seems to be wearing flip-flops, and when she pulls up to the house it is actually clear that she has on flip-flops. But as she enters the house and walks around in the dark, it is very clear that she now is wearing fuzzy house slippers. After she is discovered by Elvis and gets ready to leave, as she walks out onto the porch, once again she is wearing the flip-flops. See more »

A truly memorable film!!!
14 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elvis and Annabelle does a superb job of capturing and dealing with the inner struggles of both characters. The natural chemistry between Max and Blake makes them perfect for the lead roles.

Joe Montegna also delivered in his role and touches your heart. He is genuine and in-character throughout the entire film.

I also liked how the film naturally transitioned from a darker, black & white feel to a brighter and more colorful feel when Annabelle arrived at the house/mortuary.

Most independent movies have been filmed on very tight budgets and therefore have numerous flaws that are evident on the screen. Elvis and Annabelle also was filmed on a tight budget, but the director did an amazing job of bringing the entire film together in a way that truly minimizes the flaws. What an accomplishment.
