Did You Know?

Trivia

The scene where Mikey is mesmerized by an explosion on TV is actually a clip of atomic bomb testing from the 40's or 50's. See more »

Goofs

About 40 minutes in, there's a scene in which the Baconator closes the garage door after it mysteriously opens, then sees the French doors open. He walks up to close it and you notice, the closed door of the two has no holes for the lock and knob to go into. But the open door, as the Baconator looks out, has the door knob/lock hardware. That door can't close shut or lock. See more »

Quotes

Stephanie Taylor: We never talk about him, we never talk about how he affects all of us... it's getting creepier and creepier.
Stephanie Taylor: Will you tell Michael to stay out of my room... he keeps leaving dirty hand prints everywhere.

It is light viewing and a decent story
20 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really don't know why people are writing comments slating this film.

It is not a 'hardcore; horror that is likely to make you seek therapy for the rest of your life, but it is not dull or unwatchable either.

The production is good, the acting is good, and it is the kind of film you can watch when you just fancy a 'movie night' with friends or family.

The story is engaging enough to make it interesting.

All these pseudo-intellectual ramblings criticising the film are just that - pseudo-intellectual.

It is probably not the best film you will watch in your life but is it also very far from the worst.
