Wes Craven Does Disney!
23 May 2008 | by iwantsofiaSee all my reviews

After two theatrical bombs in a row, The Hills Have Eyes Part II (filmed in 1983, but released in 1985) and Deadly Friend (1986), Wes Craven took a break from horror to make this very short (46 minutes!) TV movie - for Disney!

The story has two kids (Noah Hathaway and Virginia Keehne) visiting their grandpa (Pat Hingle), a former cop turned Security Patrol man. Allie (Keehne) has read every mystery book ever written and sees a boy break into a house to steal food. She calls grandpa on a walkie talkie and the kids get in the car and they chase him. The house owners let the thief go. Turns out that they had good reason - they're counterfeiters! Eventually the thief joins the two kids and their grandpa in an effort to stop them.

The movie starts with the Hall & Oates classic "Private Eyes", and throughout the movie we hear music by Madonna, Michael Jackson and The Pointer Sisters. (What tells me this movie was filmed in the '80s?) All in all, a cute movie with a good cast. Craven previously worked with two members of the cast. Virginia Keehne played a child in an episode of The Twilight Zone titled "A Little Peace And Quiet" (1985). Nicholas Worth, one of the bad guys, was in Swamp Thing (1982). Virginia hasn't done anything since 1999. What happened to her? And why won't Disney release this movie on DVD? (Could the music rights have something to do with it?)
