The successful and wealthy TV actress Christine moves from Los Angeles to a small town in Romania with her son Kevin, her fiance Tony and her assistant Joanne to buy an old castle and construct a SPA following Tony's advice. Kevin does not like Tony and misses his friends that were left behind, but befriends the castle administrator Pavel. Soon Kevin encounters the ghost Sofia, who takes care of the castle that belonged to her family, and they become best friends. They discover that Tony has a love affair with Joanne and they are spending the money of Christine. Further, Sofia is getting weaker and weaker with the destruction of the castle. Now their only hope is to summon Sofia's mother to help her daughter to save the castle, but the spell is not working. Will Sofia vanish and the castle be totally destructed?

Just wow! I was tricked to watch this movie because of its high IMDb rating, nothing more. I reckon one-sentence positive reviews of the movie doesn't help anyone, so i decided to write a review to balance things out and give a fair warning to the possible viewers (assuming you can find this somewhere on the internet or cable).

Simply this is a TV movie with low budget, bad acting, cheap effects, poor scriptwriting and childish dialogue (plus the narrative). There is nothing interesting, original or crafty in it. It falls short in many levels, even considering the target group is 4-6 age group.

The reason behind the higher rating is presumably the accumulated voting from people who watched this piece of crap when they were kids. I can see why someone would like certain types of movies when they are young, but this doesn't justify a 10 voting.

I understand IMDb is more of a popularity contest rather than a film critic website, but it sometimes misleads people into watching low quality movies such as this one. I would suggest you watch this film (in youtube maybe?) and give it a fair vote to set things straight.
