Trivia

For years it was believed that Pat Benatar's hit song "Hell Is For Children" was featured in the film's soundtrack. The song, however, is never heard throughout the film, nor credited on the closing titles. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Nancy plays the record album, there are two close-ups of the album on the turntable. From the first close-up to the second close-up, the speed of the spinning record has increased, although the speed/pitch of the music remains constant. See more »

Quotes

Amy: That's encouraging.
Father McKenna: But they should have never been married to begin with. They just made bad decisions and picked incompatible mates.
Amy: You trying to tell me something, Father?
Father McKenna: Me? No. I don't meddle. I just want you to be sure.

Some interesting aspects....
10 March 2008 | by MarieGabrielleSee all my reviews

Some of the scenes in this movie , while we have seen them before, are worth a view, rather odd at times.

Tom Hanks in a bit part as a psychology major talking about fear and how audiences pay to be frightened , as a spoof of the movie itself.

Tom Rolfing as the Michael Myers type villain is good, this is a comparable film to "Halloween". The scene with the fish tank is something you will remember for a few days, at any rate. The scenes in the amusement park are good, better than "Terror Train" a vehicle which included, of all young struggling actors, Bill Maher.

Anyway, if you are up for it, there is also an amusing scene with now famous James Rebhorn ("Far from Heaven", "The Incredible Mr. Ripley") as a cheating professor having an affair with his student. He comes to a bad end, here. 6/10.
