Storyline

Convicted embezzler Witt Hampton escapes from prison and while hiding out in an isolated country barn is discovered by young Cassy and her brother Jack. After convincing them he's a friendly ghost that only they can see, the three new friends embark on one imaginative adventure after another until, inspired by their innocent spirits, Witt vows to redeem his crimes. But, a by-the-book sheriff-who has sworn to personally put Hampton back behind bars-is closing in, and Witt may never get the chance to finally set things right.

Some ghostly acting
10 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Quite an impressive little story. At over 100 minutes you are expecting something good, or very bad, and slow. Fortunately this little film was actually reasonably entertaining.

The film is carried well by the two children, especially the young girl who puts in a great performance. Unfortunately they did run a bit short of good actors in some areas. Resulting in a slightly poor quality telling of a charming tale.

Whilst the end was a waste of space I'm sure everyone can think of an ending for the film that they would have enjoyed a bit more. Just pretend they did that instead.

In summary nothing special but worth watching if you like watching films. Like me.
