A newly recruited night security guard at the Museum of Natural History discovers that an ancient curse causes the animals and exhibits on display to come to life and wreak havoc.
Jeremy Irons, James Spader, Ron Perlman, Jackie Earle Haley and Robert Loggia were considered for the role of Cecil Fredericks.
Hey, watch it!
(at around 12 mins) Cecil shuts the bottom half of the security office door when Larry enters. When Larry leaves the office, the door is open.
During the film's end credit sequence, two scenes featuring the three older night guards appear on the side.
