Alternate Versions

There were over 20 deleted scenes including:
  • an alternate scene of the scene where Shorty is smoked by the plant, which includes a cassette of "Ghetto Lullabies" featuring gunshots and police car sirens, and "Wilson" (from Cast Away), where Shorty asks for his help and Wilson tells Shory he is on his own and then rolls away.
  • an alternate take of the scene with Hanson, Shorty & Cindy in the kitchen, including Shorty having a very small brain which he proceeds to eat and then die, and a scene mocking Hannibal with Hanson & CIndy being connected by handcuffs, but Hanson's hand is too small and he gets away immediately
  • a scene where Professor Oldman is telling the kids about the history of the house, and Brenda keeps having psychic connections with past owners (or so she thinks), even though some are still alive. Then she walks by numerous things and yells that the ghost in these items, (including a mirror that punches her back)
  • a scene better explaining Alex's apperance and her reasons for being there.
  • a scene where Alex finally "breaks up" with a boy that she was actually stalking.
  • a scene where Alex freshens up and wants to be "taken advantage of" again by the ghost, and the ghost runs away.
  • numerous scenes with the bird not talking and Shorty & Cindy eating him.
  • a scene better introducing Dwight driving his car (who knows how) and his licence plate "GOT LEGS".
  • a scene after Alex is hit by the chandelier, and Theo comes in and Alex squeezes her chest and tells her to remember all the times they got very "personal" (even though they met the day before)
  • Extended scene showing Cindy reading the diary in her room, only to open up a vortex that nearly sucks her out of the room and paralyzes her. She's put into a tub with the water rising over her head like in What Lies Beneath, using her right foot to try to unstop the drain, then extending it far over to the side of the bathroom to call for help on the telephone.

User Reviews

Chris Elliot is the only reason to see this film
1 September 2002 | by horsedevoursSee all my reviews

I can't remember a time when I laughed so hard at such a horrible, terrible

movie... I'm talking about the scenes with Chris Elliot in them -- especially the dinner scene and how he manages to get his "hand" in every type of food he

brings out. I don't know why I found this hilarious. My insides hurt so much from all the laughing. Aside from this, I hardly smiled or laughed at anything else...
