A film made on a "little" budget which is still great big fun!
14 July 2014 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Kevin is one sad 12 year old. First, his actress mother has a new boyfriend, who the young lad doesn't like. Then, he has to leave his home, his friends, and such comforts as "fast food joints" and follow his mama to the European country of Sylvania. That's where an old castle is going to be turned into a "spa" by mommy and beau. Also making the trip is an assistant to the couple, a woman who may have eyes on the "boyfriend", too. When they get to the castle, Kevin is utterly bored until, lo and behold, a ghost appears. Its the spirit of a little girl from the Middle Ages and she is haunting the place in hopes of scaring visitors away, for she doesn't want the building to change. At first, Kev is a bit afraid, as she pops in and out at whim. But, soon, they are fast friends. As Kevin tells her more about his mom's suitor and the man himself has plans to knock down precious parts of the castle and grounds, the little ghost helps upset the venture. One day, she wraps a garden hose around the beau, which acts like a cobra and spits water into the man's face. Now, that's entertainment! Another time, vegetables and fruits are thrown at the gentleman, covering him in juice. Will Kevin and the ghost succeed in driving everyone back to the States? This fun family flick was made on a budget but still has plenty of great big fun for all. There are no known actors, except Sally Kirkland in a brief role. But, the castle and gardens are very beautiful and the magical antics will make the audience laugh. So, fork over a little money and find Little Ghost. Your family will like it.
