Carpenter, director of the ’80s horror flicks ”The Dorm That Dripped Blood” and ”The Kindred” and coscripter of ”Blue Streak” and ”Ocean’s Eleven,” returns to his roots with this $14 million supernatural thriller, about a troubled teen (Sagemiller) who survives an automobile accident only to be haunted by nightmares. ”The story is really sad, so there was a lot of crying every day,” says Sagemiller.

Things didn’t get more cheerful once production wrapped two years ago: When Carpenter refused Artisan’s request to add a nude sex scene involving two female characters, the studio responded by bringing in its own editor and recutting the film several times. Still, Sagemiller, who went on to costar in this spring’s ”Get Over It,” remains upbeat: ”It was my first movie, so it’s still special to me.”
