Trivia

Goofs

When Elaine first arrives at the City Agencies office, watch the display board which lists the names of all of the departments within the building. While the departments should be listed in numerical order, the office for the Public Transportation department (#615) is inadvertently listed below numbers 669 and 689, rather than before them. Note that the "Transportation" in "Public Transportation" is misspelled. The "T" and the "A" from the word's third syllable are missing, and the word written on the sign actually reads "TRANSPORTION". Also note that while AGING is spelled "Ageing" in Australia and places overseas, the Americanized version of the word is correctly spelled "Aging". While few places in the USA do spell it "Ageing", It might have been assumed that spelling it correctly would confuse certain people as to it's correct pronunciation, and thus it was spelled phonetically...

Not too shabby
31 July 2006 | by headphonealone-1See all my reviews

I'll start by stating that Louise Fletcher makes this film.

Now before you watch this, keep in mind that this was a made for T.V. movie so there was only so much they could get away with showing. However, they did a fairly decent job building a creepy atmosphere.

In a way it tips its hat to horror classics such as The Shining, Rosemary's Baby, and The Omen. Had this movie been made 20 years earlier and with a larger budget it could have done quite well.

That being said, if you're a fan of films that leave more to the imagination without a lot of glitz and glamour you may dig this little film.

It has a touch a mystery, a bit of horror, and just enough suspense to keep you watching until the credits roll.
