Storyline

Young Lori Anderson lost her father in a plane crash. While her mother appears to be picking up the pieces of her life, Lori isn't. She is resentful of every decision that her mother makes from selling the family horse farm to a relationship with the local sherrif. Lori doesn't know what to do and turns to her father's journals filled with psychology and metaphysics for answers. One day, a client coming to see about the boarding of his horse, crashes in a plane with his best friend. The friend manages to escape tragedy, but the client, Terry Stockton, dies in the accident. However, Lori can see and actually touch the supposedly dead Terry after she finds him in the woods. After some struggle, Lori comes to believe that she is meant to help Terry. With the aid of her father's journals and Terry's best friend, they try to find out why Terry's spirit hasn't crossed over. A complication then develops in the situation when Lori and Terry begin to fall for each other. Lori has a riding ... Written by C.D.

Haunting
10 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Micro budget films don't get any better than this. There's something about the simplicity of both the star performances by Sarah Jessica Parker and Tom Shea and the Earnest script that speaks of truthfulness, Director Robert Wiemer works well with young actors and his writing is full of realistic dialog filmed on a budget.

The story follows young Lori Anderson, grieving over the loss of her father and angry that her mother has begun to pick up the pieces of her life with a new serious relationship. She meets Terry Stockton at the site of a private plane crash, only to realize he was killed in the crash. Together, they begin to piece together the reason Terry has remained earthbound as a ghost...and if it has anything to do with Lori.

Full of surprises, I'm still not sure of Terry's "true" identity. The script offers vague clues to another possibility. The song lyrics were apparently written by future "Star Trek" czar Rick Berman! He may have missed his calling.

In the end, this is a very good family film, that has the rare quality of never talking down to it's audience, whether child or adult and awaits a well deserved discovery with a DVD release.
