The Other Side of the Tracks (also known as The Haunting of Amelia) is a 2008 independent fantasy film written and directed by A. D. Calvo.

Plot[edit]

Ten years after a tragic train accident killed his girlfriend, Josh finds himself haunted by disturbing visions from somewhere between the world of the living and the dead—haunting memories that keep him from moving on. His buddy, back in town for their high school reunion, tries to wake Josh from his painful past, but a mysterious young waitress offers a seductive alternative.

Effects[edit]

The Other Side of the Tracks showcases special make-up effects by Academy Award-winning make-up effects artist Arjen Tuiten (Pan's Labyrinth). Arjen spent nearly four hours applying latex foam prosthetics to transform Tania Raymonde into Amelia's ghost.

The film was shot and is set in Wallingford, Connecticut, in 2008, with a brief flashback to 1998. The film features many scenes with trains, railroad tracks, and a 1979 Chevrolet Camaro—referred to as the Blue Heaven. Locations also include an abandoned farmhouse and a small pizza restaurant housed in an authentic decommissioned subway car.
