The very first shot filmed was the colonists arrival on the beach. The very last shot filmed was Ananias' inscription of the word "Croatoan" on a tree near the same beach. See more »
At the beginning of the film an on-screen graphic identifies the location as "Roanoke Island, Virginia". Although today the island is part of North Carolina, in 1580, the colony was in what was then Virginia, named in honor of the reigning British monarch, Queen Elizabeth I. The only child to have been born there, Virginia Dare, was also named for the place she was born. See more »
My god this film is bad, however it is strangely watchable. Especially if you have a DVD player in your room, you're ill on a weekday or pulling a sickie. I like watching bad ghost films on a cold miserable day. This wasn't scary apart from watching the wasted potential of Adrian Paul's career ! The ghosts in questions resemble something out of a rundown ghost train attraction or a half baked equalivent of the ghost army from 'Return Of The King'. Still it's watchable as it does have some very mild suspense. For the duriation of the film I would recommend some hot soup and a toasted cheese sandwich, or 1 low volume alcoholic beer- depends on your mood!
