As the end credits start, we hear the trickster say "Hey wait, it's not over yet" and the credits screen shatters as if it was made of glass. It then shows a scene involving the dog with the dismembered foot from earlier in the film, and then the end credits resume See more »
The UK Guild video was cut by 58 secs with edits to a scene where a man is repeatedly stabbed and his foot severed. The cuts were waived for the Optimum DVD release. See more »
Uneven horror film is worth watching most of the way, but finally blows it all with the cop-out ending it has devised to get the hero out of the tight spot he has gotten himself into. Furlong is utterly believable in his role and hits all the right notes, but the "Trickster" is an overly jokey character who doesn't fit in well with the tone of the rest of the movie. This guy is even lamer than Freddy was in the "Dream Child". (**1/2)
