Very funny film has a father and his two daughters trying to enjoy a peaceful meal but soon various magic tricks are taking place right before a ghost shows up. This is one of the director's better films as it offers some familiar magic tricks mixed in with some new ones. The highlight of the film is a scene where the father goes to cut the turkey only to have the table grow as tall as the ceiling. We get several gags dealing with chairs disappearing as people are trying to sit down but we also get new gags including a great sequence where the father gets possessed by the ghost and then goes flying around the room. The special effects dealing with the ghost are extremely good and it's shocking that forty-years later they wouldn't even be topped.
