PG-13 | | Horror, Thriller
Carol Anne is staying with her aunt in a high-rise building, where the supernatural forces haunting her make their return.
Producer David E. Kelley has quite a connection to this film. He cast Tom Skerritt and Zelda Rubinstein in his Emmy-winning TV drama Picket Fences (1992) after seeing them together in this film. The character of Skerrit's daughter was played by Holly Marie Combs on the show. That character is reminiscent in character and physicality to Lara Flynn Boyle's character Donna Gardner in this film. Nancy Allen was originally cast to portray the town's mayor in Season 2 of "Picket Fences" but had to drop out due to her contractual obligations to appear in RoboCop 2 (1990) and RoboCop 3 (1993). That role was then filled by Leigh Taylor-Young.
Stay back! He's got the girls, and now HE WANTS YOU!
(at around 1h 29 mins) Towards the end right after Pat jumps from the window washer and she is walking through the foggy, frozen room, you can hear her calling out everyone's name, but when she gets to Carol Anne her lips aren't moving.
A text in the credits reads "The character of Reverend Henry Kane was originally portrayed by Julian Beck"
