    However, there is a freaky boy/ghost in THREE MEN AND A BABY that gave me chills when I saw it.




    Its a cardboard cut-out of Ted Danson. You actually see it earlier in the movie. I'm surprised people still believe this, I thought it was debunked a long time ago



    Proof

    Hmmm, looked at that clip for the munchkin hanging... hard to say what it is exactly, but I always thought the Wizard Of Oz was a freaky film.

    I believe there are a lot of urban legends associated with not just this film, but other old films like The Exorcist for example.



    Anyhow, I predict a boom in sales of "Dark side..." and DVDs of "..Oz" after this

    As a major "Exorcist" fan/junkie, I can tell you that most of those things associated with that movie are silly coincidences or outright myths/rumors. The big 25th anniversary collectors DVD has a GREAT documentary on it, with interviews with the director, the author, the major cast members, people on the crew, Dick Smith (the makeup artist/designer), etc.



    Yes, there was a fire. There were some equipment malfunctions. Most of this is attributed to a cold, sub-freezing set (Regan's room) and odd wear-and-tear situations. But, combined with the content of the movie and all, many have attached unearthly, "oooo!" reasons to it.







    There are some great online sites to that go into this stuff in detail. Hit google.com and check 'em out. I think one is exorcist.net, if I remember correctly.

    I just got done watching it with the CD and all, and it kicked ass. It was unreal, and then when the cast started singing a horrible song from the movie, just blasted Pink Floyd, unbelieveable!!!
