Trivia

This film started out as Twisted Souls. It finished production and was in the editing stage when creative and legal issues ensued. The financial backer then hired a new director/editor who cut out scenes already filmed and inserted newly shot footage several months later (on the same location but with different actors). The rumor that the film is composed of two completely unrelated and unfinished films is NOT true. See more »

Goofs

Adrienne's hair repeatedly changes position when she hears the cat noises, before being attacked. See more »

Monster-mash extravaganza!
11 September 2004 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Two-line summary : a group of people spends the night in this mansion near an old cemetery and encounter all sorts of strange, horrific beings. There are zombies resurrecting outside, demons arise from an ouija-board and all these creatures are ruled and controlled by an old Frankenstein-like fella in the attic. Other than these we have an authentic red-eyed Grim Reaper, mummies, giant spiders, little gremlins and huge monsters. Don't be fooled, however, because this 'Spookies' is a lot less silly than it actually seems. It contains several very efficient shock-effects and the make-up achievements easily outshine 90% of all the other low-budget 80's horror movies. I'd even go further and claim that this is a very underrated little flick and it deserves more praising (and a DVD-release!!). "Spookies" received the Delirium-award for best Special Effects at the international SF and Fantasy films festival, so you see I'm not the only one who likes it. If it only had a little more plot, it would enjoy the same status as films like 'The Evil Dead', 'Demons' or 'Re-Animator'. No plot, no depth, no logic… nothing but tremendous fun! That's the best way to describe this film. Check it out, horror fans, and unleash your most monstrous appetite!!
