Did You Know?

Trivia:
The movie is titled Twixt. The word "twixt" is short for "betwixt", which is an archaic term for "between". This is a reference to the main character's situation between dream and reality.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: In the newspaper clippings folder, the clipping from "The Press" (revealing the "Devil lives in the clock tower" angle) shows an ad for a motel on the left side of the page. In that page a car is shown, a 1957 Ford. In the next clipping shown, another variation on the "Devil in the clock tower" angle on the children's murders, shows the date of the newspaper, from 1955. Unless this paper was still churning the Devil in the tower angle, and the children's murder was still front page above the fold news (dubious), the car shown didn't exist until two years after the murder/newspaper story.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Narrator:There was, once upon a time, a town not far from a big city. A road ran through, but there were only a few businesses. A coffee shop, a hardware store, a sheriff's office. And all kinds of people. Vagrants, run away teens, religious fanatics, retired seniors who, well, it was a town of those who wanted to be left alone. And so they were.

Great follow up to 'Tetro', 24 July 2013
Author: AckleyKid1990 from My Butt, Japan

I have eagerly been waiting for the last two years for this film to be released, for no reason other than to add it to my collection of Tom Waits featured films. A shallow and callous reason that may be, but bear with me.

A couple months ago I had the pleasure of a good friend praising a film he had just seen called 'Tetro', a Francis Ford Coppola fanatic, he encouraged me to watch it, saying it will change my opinion on the famed director after my disappointment in 'Youth Without Youth.' Needless to say, he was right, and my eagerness for the arrival of this film increased immensely.

I watched the film last night, somewhere between twelve and one in the morning, trying to get the mood just perfect. From the opening narration (yes, it just so happens to be Tom Waits) the film grasped every bit of my attention. From the beautiful photography, to the moody music, to the ever entertaining Val Kilmer sitting behind a desk ready to sign copies of a book that no one will ever read, this film was a delightful treat, and what I had built up in my mind the last couple months, this film delivered and then some. It is greatly entertaining, with elements of horror, comedy, mystery, and hints of David Lynch's Twin Peaks, it is a film I am proud to add to my collection. I don't like horror films, and this film is so much more than that. While, at times, the horror elements may have been a bit over whelming, the film changes pace just in time, just as you're about to be pulled out of your comfort zone, cringing and clinging to your sofa. So don't let the marketing turn you away.

This is a beautiful film, and wonderfully entertaining. If you're an on and off Coppola fan like me, a Tom Waits fan, or want to see the only good Val Kilmer performance of the last decade, I highly recommend this film. In a world full of recycled ideas and unknown and untalented directors, how a little gem like this directed by the great FFC went so long without distribution is beyond me. Do yourself a favor and watch this film.
