In this haunted house, anything goes. And goes and goes and goes

Spookies is a  movie with 3 directors and 30 times the ideas as well as a pretty eclectic approach to horror. It also features oodles of ambitious if not top notch designs and effects.

Lacking rhyme or reason never suited a movie better. You honestly don’t know what may come next.

And there is good reason behind this film’s jambalaya essence and being, as well explained in this oral history of the film’s construction, a cautionary tale of movie-making at The Dissolve. You don’t need to read it to appreciate the film, but this film’s particular existence will certainly make more sense to you if you do.
