Storyline

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?

OK for the smaller kids; adults' minds will wander.
4 January 2000 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This lightweight childrens' movie takes place in Romania, where a young boy (Jameson Baltes) unhappily moves to an ancient castle with his mom and no-good stepdad (Kristina Wayborn and James Fitzpatrick), who plan to open a health spa there. Trouble is, the place is haunted, and the cute little ghost (Trishalee Hardy) that the young man befriends has her own reasons for not wanting her home disturbed. This is a movie for the younger kids, without any frightening scenes. Parents and other adults watching it with children may find their minds wandering, though.
