It has that made-for-TV cheese about it, but there is something about the film that I really like. It has a really good story and even though it could have been done a bit better. I enjoy watching Tower of Terror every now and then.
Back in the 1930's an elevator fails and kills famous Hollywood people on their way to a posh penthouse party. They now haunt the building. In comes a reporter and his niece, set on solving the mystery, thereby releasing the trapped ghosts. There's no hiding the made-for-TV aspects of this, which kinda detracts from its potential. Funny, the right amount of scares for small children.
Pretty good movie. Not that scary, but still. I've watched it since I was young and a lot of things seemed scary. The ride at MGM is awesome. Kirsten Dunst is a little cheesy, but Steve Guttenberg is a pretty good actor. I really loved the music from the 20s or whenever it was. Okay movie.
OMG!!!! THE RIDE @ DISNEYLAND ROCKS! If you havent been to the California Adventure u HAVE to go b/c that ride is sooooooooooooo awesome! the movie is great too and all but the ride is sooooo freakin awesome! and i get to ride it again in March of '07!
The film doesn't fully capture the foreboding, creepiness, and magic of the ride but it does try. The film does throw in some small references to the ride, and the most noteworthy thing about the film is that parts of it were filmed at the actual attraction. Most of the acting is just ok, and the story itself is kind of lame. It's a decent little film, but still worth a view for die-hard fans of the ride.
