Did You Know?

Revealing mistakes: 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 »

My kids love Ali Lohan!, 25 April 2010
Author: ifuseekkody from United States

This was excellent. I have to admit the reason that made me want to watch this is because it is based on an R.L. Stein book, and I happen to be a fan of his kids horror stories. It thought the casting was great. They where able to use familiar Disney actors without them seeming like there characters from their shows. Luke Benward, Maddison Pettis,David Deluise, Kim Rhodes, they all delivered A+ performances. Let's not forget the main character Max played by a seemingly highly talented stage/movie/TV actor, Sterling Beaumon, I doubt this is the last we'll see of him (his resume is very long, even though he is only 13), he did an excellent job acting his role. This was classic R.L. Stein, from dumb bully brothers, to creepy basement creatures, to creepy children (ghosts), to a creepy ending where you know the bad guy is still out there, but he can't harm anyone any longer. I recommend this to anybody with kids, and to kids who want a good laugh, and maybe some scares. The special effects where top-notch considering it is a made-for-TV-movie. For performance, effects, and story I give it a 10/10!
