This one always makes me cry
25 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is a great ghost story. It stayed with me from the time I first saw it as a child. I just loved it. A little french girl's ghost on an old spooky southern plantation. This was based on a book called "The Ghost Belonged to Me". After watching this film, I bought the book and it's sequel, which were just as good as the movie. If you're looking for a good ghost story, this is it.
