  • Though a few scary skeletons (and one doll) rattle in and out of the film's closet, Bardwell is a slave to television lexicon, allowing Bryan and his lawyer buddy (Tom Arnold) to brave the banter of shrill detective comedies, and framing his images with all the brio of your average "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" episode. show more

  • It's all an earnest effort, three decades too late. show more

  • Old-fashioned in the worst sense, Bardwell's ghost story is heavy on Freud, light on fear. show more
