Clever comedy about accidentally haunting a house
27 October 1999 | by (Central PA) – See all my reviews

It is a complete mystery to me why none of the Henry Aldrich movies has ever been released on video. All of them are fun to watch and a genuine look at the way America used to be.

This is my favorite of the Henry Aldrich movies, though I was very young the first time I saw it and it scared me for years afterward.

Henry, Dizzy and their gang are living, breathing archetypes of Archie and Jughead, but without the large breasted girl friends. If you get a chance to see any one of these movies on television (I can't remember the last time I was aware of one being on TV, but they must be once in a while) don't miss it. You will thank me for having recommended it.
