A crazed symphony of the supernatural. The elements don't hang together, but Kasdan delivers real scares, and real hoots, in the midst of the mayhem and madness.

By Mick LaSalle
Could hardly be called a success -- it's rather a likable disaster.

A moviegoer's nightmare. The story is incoherent, inane and interminable.
