Goofs

When young ghost Tara runs in front of Colin, the human older brother, while Colin and his dad are watching TV, Tara hits the bowl of popcorn on the coffee table and the bowl visibly moves. Earlier the film had established that ghosts would pass through anything solid unless they concentrated on that object to be moved. (In this case, Tara was not concentrating on the bowl.) Furthermore, the bowl had been in Colin's lap a moment before when it suddenly appeared on the coffee table. Immediately after Tara knocked the bowl aside, the bowl appeared back in Colin's lap in the next shot. See more »

Not a DCOM!
17 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish people would actually read a movie's production information prior to making comments. This is not a DCOM, but rather a Universal Direct-to-DVD release based on the R.L. Stine books. Disney Channel picked up broadcasting rights as part of its Wiztober promotion (probably at a fire-sale price). With so many past DCOM and DC stars, and a DC showing, I can understand why an uninformed person would think it was produced by Disney, but even DC has some standards for production that this movie doesn't meet. Poor special effects, poor acting, poor first AND second unit directing. Ali Lohan has less acting ability at 14 than her older sister had when she was 11. Overall, a poor adaptation of a pretty popular book. Don't look for any sequels!
