Silliness
4 April 2003 | by lje32677See all my reviews

I hope that this movie was meant to be a comedy or parody of science fiction shows. I didn't see this movie as serious, at all. We have two men, a professor of anthropology/archaelogy; Dr. Jonathan MacKensie(Trevor Eve) and a tabloid reporter, Benny Benedek(Dennis Duggan). The professor is, of course, the skeptic. The tabloid reporter has seen alot of paranormal and odd happenings. MacKensie is blackmailed into investigating paranormal activities in a small town in California by his Dean. If he will investigate this activity, she will allot a grant for archaelogical research. He reluctantly goes. He meets up with Benedek and together they investigate the activities in a house.

I had seen Dennis Dugan in other TV programs, mostly comedy, but knew very little of Trevor Eve. I had seen him in a couple of intense, action films. He was hilarious in this. I felt so sorry for his right foot.

The best word to describe this movie is plan "silliness".
