Storyline

The sensitive Onnoval is the best student in his class and he loves Liselore, who was the girlfriend of the bully Gino. His teacher Meester de Vriend believes he is a promising writer and poet. Gino picks on Onnoval all the time, but Onnoval does not fight against Gino because he believes he is a werewolf. When the successful writer of horror tales Nol van Paulo comes for a lecture in his class, he advises Onnonval to never write a story for the evil Ferluci. However, Onnoval is humiliated by Gino and very upset and jealous he writes a story about a class excursion in a horror bus to a horror park, where Gino is killed by a vampire, and gives his story to Ferluci. Later he regrets, but Nol van Paulo tells him that the only way to fix the situation would be stealing his note book and rewriting the conclusion. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Dutch Harry Potter
25 February 2006 | by (Arnhem, Holland) – See all my reviews

Onnoval rather is the nerd of the class. Gino is the most popular boy and picks on Onnoval to bully him around. Onnoval however likes to write stories. In one of these he takes his revenge on Gino. Then the Buss of Horrors (=griezelbus) arrives to take the class on a school trip and suddenly Onnoval's story turns into reality...

This movie is based on the book by Paul van Loon and is aimed at children aged 8 to 14. There are certain similarities with the Potter-stories, even though Van Loon's book was published long before Rowling's. And children do love the movie indeed. Yet, this film doesn't reach the standards of the Potter movies, for the budgets were obviously much smaller, the special effects are clumsy and some actors terribly overact, such as Onnoval's parents and the teacher. The overall acting however isn't bad. Nijholt overacts as well, but in his case this is done with care and fits very well into the story. This is a lovely film for members of the targeted group and their parents will be thrilled as well, when not expecting too much. It certainly is not the bad movie some people tell us it is, but it is not an Oscar winning movie either.
