Trivia

The company that Bacon works for is called Fells Point & Levinson - a reference to legendary director Barry Levinson - Kevin Bacon was also in Diner (1982) - a picture directed by Barry Levinson, and also starring Paul Reiser, who is in this picture too. See more »

Goofs

About 40 minutes in, there's a scene in which the Baconator closes the garage door after it mysteriously opens, then sees the French doors open. He walks up to close it and you notice, the closed door of the two has no holes for the lock and knob to go into. But the open door, as the Baconator looks out, has the door knob/lock hardware. That door can't close shut or lock. See more »

Quotes

Stephanie Taylor: We never talk about him, we never talk about how he affects all of us... it's getting creepier and creepier.
Stephanie Taylor: Will you tell Michael to stay out of my room... he keeps leaving dirty hand prints everywhere.

I did not like this at all!
13 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So this kid with Autism is more accessible to the preternatural and disturbs evil native American spirits that decide to disturb him and his family back.

It Reminds me of Stir of Echoes, which also star Keven Bacon, but is nowhere near as good as that movie. in comparison, Stir of Echoes looks like The Exorcist when standing right next to The Darkness.

The story had potential. Some evil native American spirits get their resting place disturbed, by some white folks (shocker), so in return, these spirits decide to unlock these guys inner most demons (mom's an alcoholic, the daughter is bulimic) to split up the family and drive them all crazy.

It was a brilliant idea, but it was done so corny. Even seasoned actor Keven Bacon looked cheesy delivering simple lines and trying to be serious as he reacted to the ghost.

It was a very sad display of what could have been gold. I don't know what went wrong, but I know this: Don't wast your time.
