Did You Know?

Trivia

This film started out as Twisted Souls. It finished production and was in the editing stage when creative and legal issues ensued. The financial backer then hired a new director/editor who cut out scenes already filmed and inserted newly shot footage several months later (on the same location but with different actors). The rumor that the film is composed of two completely unrelated and unfinished films is NOT true. See more »

Trivia comment is wrong
10 September 2006 | by talkpingp1See all my reviews

Someone recently added a trivia comment which says, "Actually comprised of two separate, unfinished films and edited together." This is completely untrue. I wish people would actually read the message board notes before bothering to make such comments. Spookies is comprised of the original Twisted Souls (finished save for some post production work), and new footage added months later (which was NOT from an unfinished, separate film at all, but was footage shot to add into Twisted Souls). I know some of the people who made this film and visited the set many, many times so I know what I am talking about. Where do people come up with these things? I know it has a confusing history, but read the comments from myself and others, it will help clarify matters.
