Trivia

While most of the setting is authentic, the production company could not find a suitable crypt in the Danville, Kentucky cemetary, so the climactic sequence was shot in a fake tomb constructed in the actual graveyard. The phony mausoleum became a local attraction after the film aired. See more »

Even though it may be dangerous and the little boy will end up losing the ghost girl as a friend if he succeeds in solving the it he agrees to help. He gets help from a new neighbor friend who is also the same age and their off to the races. They have only until holloween to solve the riddle of "The Child of Glass"
