Storyline

Alexander Armsworth and his family move to an authentic antibellum mansion, which once was owned by a river pirate. Alexander is drawn into a century-old mystery when he sees the ghost of a little girl, and she asks for his help in finding the "child of glass" by reciting a riddle. He has only a day or two to solve the riddle, or be haunted for the rest of his life! Written by Marta Dawes <smdawes@home.com>

Trivia

While most of the setting is authentic, the production company could not find a suitable crypt in the Danville, Kentucky cemetary, so the climactic sequence was shot in a fake tomb constructed in the actual graveyard. The phony mausoleum became a local attraction after the film aired. See more »

Scared me as a child... keeps scaring me now
18 December 2000 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie as a child when it played on tv.

It turned out that Child of Glass would haunt me even today. The little girl looking for the doll plays a rather convincing ghost.

The movie is very well done and deserves recognition. I suggest you go rent it. Warning, you may see ghosts around you after seeing this.
