Trivia

While Roy is examining the stack of peat that mysteriously appeared behind Mrs. MacIntyre's cottage, he crouches down for a closer look at a triangular mark, picks up a horseshoe from the turf, and turns to look questioningly back up at Mrs. MacIntyre (26:50 to 26:52). Film editor Melody George mentions in the student commentary that there wasn't film of Roy turning back to look down (26:58 to 27:01) to segue to the next film segment, so they ran some of the previous segment backwards.

Goofs

When his father leaves Roy at the Wallace shop, the weather is wet and windy, but the portion of the scene after his dad drives away was shot on a different day when the road is dry and there is no wind. See more »

Great Family Film, That gets better the more you watch
31 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I work in a video store and am required to watch movies in order to advise customers. So I brought The Secret of the Cave home with me unsure of what it was going to be like. I really thought it was going to be a cheesy poorly written and directed film. I was very impressed starting from the opening scene which shows the beautiful Irish seaside. To the realness of a hurting child going through divorce (I also thought that the boy who played Roy was a little to dark to be Irish, I thought that his mother would have been Native American.) As a mother and a Christian (I am not seventh day Adventist) I am constantly looking for movies that my whole family can enjoy together. And this is one of those. As I watched this movie I was reminded of myself watching Escape From Witch Mountian as a child. It has that kind of innocence about it.

I was also impressed when I found out that this film was done mostly by students at a college. I can't wait to see what other projects they come out with.

Overall a very excellent job. Movie worth renting. It's not the another movie about a mass murder, or a teenage love movie. It doesn't have Will Ferrell any where in the credits. And that's what makes this movie worth watching...it's original.
