Storyline

If you start seeing dead people, you may have a problem... After they hear their cemetery is going to be sold as a building site, Johnny certainly has. Especially since the dead want him to stop it. And the dead are getting restless. They are not going to take this lying down; especially since it's almost Halloween... What are cemeteries for anyway? What can anyone do about anything? Will Johnny be able to stop the juggernaut of Policy and Commerce (and be in bed by ten)? Written by Heorot

Not worth watching.
9 February 2002 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Johnny and the Dead is the second of (so far) three Johnny-Maxwell children's novels that Terry Pratchett has written. And it is easily my least favourite. The story centres around Johnny Maxwell and his friends, who for some reason begin to see the dead. No - forget Sixth Sense. This is not a serious or scary movie. The dead are merely unhappy, because someone wants to build a parking lot or shopping mall on their cemetery, and they are bound to stay there until all eternity, so they'd prefer it to remain a cozy cemetery forever.

Johnny and his friends get involved and try to rescue the cemetery. What is supposed to be a funny and lovable story about respecting and aiding your elders is just plain boring in this TV adaptation. I doubt kids will enjoy this TV movie (or series, depending on how you watch it) very much.
