Storyline

Further complications beset the life of young, aspiring magician Max when he finds only he can see and hear the ghosts that have come to reside in his family's relatively new home (former home of the ghosts). Like Max, two of the ghosts are children, who also need a living person to help them defeat an evil apparition named Phears aiming to capture them and release mean spirits back into the world on Halloween.

Goofs

In Max' magic act fantasy, he covers Traci with a sheet. The top of the sheet is rounded due to the shape of her head, but when the camera changes, her covered "head" is pointy due to the invisible strings holding up the sheet with Traci no longer under it. See more »

Mostly Ghostly(2008) Starring: Sterling Beaumon, Madison Pettis, Luke Benward, Brian Stepanek, David DeLuise, Kim Rhodes, Adam Hicks, Aliana Lohan, Sabrina Bryan, Rachel Winfree, Travis T. Flory, Juliette Cohen, Melanie Hawkins, Abby Walker, Kimberly Kevon Williams, Brandon Ellison, Todd Tucker, Harvey Lowery, Noah Lindsey Cyrus, Adriana Belan, and Dylan Tucker Directed By: Rich Correl Review Hello kiddies your pal the crypt critic is back with the first film and last review of the Mostly Ghostly series of films that have come out from Rl. Stine. You know most people wouldn't consider this children's Halloween film to be a horror film and to that I say wrong! But anyway how does this child friendly horror film sit with others, well kiddies let's see. The first film introduces to a much younger Max who is starting High School and is practicing magic. He notices a ghost hand in his basement and is still picked on by his brother. Nikki and Tara come out of no where and it's just like okay there ghosts, no explanation there just ghosts.They're looking for there parents and go back to there old home and notice that another family has moved in. Max is the only one who can see them for some reason again not explained and the villain Fierce shows up and unleashes an army which is pretty cool. The effects are horrible but considering the budget I'm not surprised, it has some pretty decent acting I liked the cast they were all very good but if it weren't for the fact that this series sounds interesting in theory but it isn't executed well. The pacing is a little slow in some areas especially the beginning I was so bored up until Nikki and Tara finally came in and the undead army was unleashed. These films aren't good but there not downright awful either or at least the first two aren't, it's pretty fun in some areas at least for just children unfortunately adults won't be as fond of the film. I'm giving Mostly Ghostly a two and a half out of five.
