Spooky little ghost...
27 May 2008 | by (Oxford, England) – See all my reviews

'Little Ghost' is a sweet children's film from the Full Moon studios. Director Shayne wrote, directed and featured briefly in cult family film 'Purple People Eater' and in many ways this is similar with its style of humour, acting and general presentation. Both Jameson Baltes as Kevin and Kristina Wayborn as Christine (the little ghost of the title) are pretty good. Unfortunately - and for no logical reason - we are given the story via a narrative of Kevin as a twenty something year old man. This is pointless as it merely disjoints the film and also irrelevant as this older Kevin has no real role in the story. Filmed at Castel Studios in Romania the castle is like something from a bewitching Disney animated movie of the 1950s and the entire film brims with beauty. The music, though quite nice, seems to have been added a little blindly often out of tone with the drama on screen. Acclaimed actress Sally Kirkland has a small role and adds a touch of glamour to what is a very entertaining and silly film.
