Storyline

Young Humphrey is a ghost with a big problem. He and his family, the Craggyfords, have been ousted from their home and left without a place to haunt. As they search for new haunting grounds they soon discover that they are not alone. Ghosts from all over the world have been exorcised from their dwellings, with dark castles and ancient buildings being destroyed by the living, and turned into shopping centers. With time running out, Humphrey digs deep inside, and decides to help save his family and the rest of the haunting community by scaring his way to victory. Written by Anonymous

This is very ... average
3 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

There is nothing that really stands out as horribly bad in this movie. It feels like a Made-for-TV piece. The acting is average, the story has about 5 minutes of plot in it and they do it in about 3 minutes. This is very U.K./Europe centric with various accents from around the Kingdom and Italy. For American audiences or other countries, I think that it will miss more than it hits. Nothing stood out as good or bad and that is the problem. Basically, it was not outstanding.

It seems to drag a lot. Lots of exposition and wandering around. Some almost nice shots outside the Tower of London but they only shot on the grounds outside the wall, not inside. Some nice shots of a few castles, some of which were only real inside a computer.

I just found it rather dreary. Once the 3 minutes of plot finally happens, it is boring again. Really contrived and boring. Maybe good for kids but not recommended for anyone over about 10.

It is OK, I guess for a very rainy evening but I would not stay home from, say, root canal work to watch this movie. The root canal would be more interesting.
