I saw this when i was younger because it was in the Disney section of a movie rental place. I picked it because, it was Disney, and I never heard about it before. It was not a cartoon but a drama. A very OCCULTIC drama, and horror film. I found it odd that Disney released such a film. Has anyone else ever seen it?

Its not Cinderella by any means.. lol. I read on Wikipedia that Disney actually had to 'tone down' the occultic nature of the ending and re-write it before release. Not sure why, the whole thing is occultic anyways lol

Hmm.. speaking of Disney dramas.. were Return to and Escape to Witch Mountain by Disney too? Those were definitely other 'strange' films for kids.

.. yup, checked, they are Disney too.
& weird.. Betty Davis is in those ones too.

In the late 80's, my brothers used to steal cable tv somehow. Our mom worked nights, so as soon as she would leave for work, they would hook the cable up. She never knew. Point is, we would stay up all night watching movies. I saw like the last 3/4 of that movie on either the Disney channel, or some movie channel. I have been searching for it ever since. As a kid, I was mesmerized by it, and I've been looking to see the first part of it for 20 years. I have never found it. I wonder why they don't play it the way they play other Disney movies all the time. Within 2 years, you can find almost any old Disney movie playing at some time or another, but not this one. When I started watching the housewives of Beverly Hills, I recognized that Kyle as the little girl in that movie. Ya, that movie made a huge impression on me, so it must have been creepy as heck. Furthermore, It was probably intended on programming children, and making huge impressions on them. ICKY ICKY ICKY. Oh, I vaguely remember something about a red room, and it scared the crap out of me. To this day, when I see that people have painted their walls red, it still creeps me out.

I haven't seen that movie though I'd like to. Disney used to release movies with darker material. Here is a trailer for another of their films "Something Wicked This Way Comes"

Yes! I too saw this when I was young. I was very scared of it, yet my mother had a video of it and kept watching it. I haven't seen it for many years now, but it is disturbing.

wow that is one crazy film, doesn't seem like much of a childs film although it bears a striking resemblance to an episode of a UK childrens tv series called Dramarama and there was an episode where I girl disappeared in a church with a bell that fell down on her!! Totally weird, am guessing one must have copied the other or got the idea from the other, not sure which way around but its definitely very very similar!

Dramarama was all kind of weird spooky type stories on the early Childrens BBC channels!! I loved things like this which is why I loved it so much, also loved tales of the unexpected, the twilight zone, the outer limits etc
