A mysterious, very old solicitor Mr. Blunden visits Mrs. Allen and her young children in her squalid, tiny Camden Town flat and makes her an offer she cannot refuse. The family become the housekeepers to a derelict country mansion in the charge of the solicitors. One day the children meet the spirits of two other children who died in the mansion nearly a hundred years previously. The children prepare a magic potion that allows them to travel backwards in time to the era of the ghost children. Will the children be able to help their new friends and what will happen to them if they do?? Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

Crazy Credits

However the character names are never shown in the opening or closing credits. Only the very minor characters are given a conventional "actor / character" credit. See more »

This is a Wonderful Fantasy Movie that the Entire Family can Enjoy!!
26 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a classic fantasy film about two children who travel back in time to save the lives of two children who died in a fire 100 years ago. Two siblings, Lucy and Jamie, get the shock of their lives when they encounter the ghosts of two children in the garden of the home there mother is overseeing. Sara and Georgie are two young ghosts that died in a fire at the house nearly 100 years ago. They desperately need help and cannot find it in their own time so they find a recipe that enables them to travel back in time. They ask Lucy and Jamie to make the potion in order to travel to their time to help save their lives. This movie is also nice because it has an interesting plot twist at the end and it is also one of the few movies in which you get to see Diana Dors act instead of just look nice. It is a thrilling movie but out of print and hard to find. I highly recommend it.
