Filmed in my hometown
Filmed in Watrous, SK and nearby Manitou Beach. Even my parents, who would never watch this movie or the much better original, had stories about the movie crew. One about how one of the actors left cigarette burns in the carpet in the geodesic dome house they filmed in and the crew was so remorseful about it that they replaced the owner's entire carpeting.
Sadly it sounds like this movie follows in the footsteps of other movies shot in Saskatchewan - easily forgettable flops (Paperback Hero starring Keir Dullea, or Terry Gilliam's Tidelands).
One day I will sit down and watch the background to see if my parents were caught in any scenes in the background. If anyone who's already seen it sees a blue minivan, that's them.
