Storyline

Living under the care of his uncles: The Ghostly Trio, Casper has been letting them push him around and making his afterlife miserable by having him do chores for them while they are scaring "fleshes" for their amusement. While taking a vacation, Casper meets with a good little witch girl named Wendy, whom she and her bewitching aunts are on the run from an evil warlock: Desmond Spellman who attempts on destroying her after discovering that she will be a greater witch than him. Like Casper, Wendy is a kind witch who also has her relatives mistreating her. The two become good friends as they discover that ghosts and witches are each other's worst enemies, so they come up with a plan to make their elders pair up to one another. Once Desmond comes into town, he determines to destroy Wendy at once. It is now up to Casper as he must get the courage to convince his uncles to help him to save his friend and her aunts from the villainous warlock.

Goofs

When Josh and his friend take over the arcade game from the two girls, the side of the cabinet shows one of the Mortal Kombat fighting games, but Josh's dialogue and the sound effects seem to indicate some type of shooting game with many enemies on screen at one time. See more »

Why do so many people downgrade movies like this??!!
18 August 2001 | by Andrew HopperSee all my reviews

At first when I put the movie on the tv I wasn't that impressed about it as it wasn't really my type of film. But as soon as it came on I was instantly captured by its charm and feeling. When you see the witches you just so want to have their powers, so when someone just gets at you, you could just simply ZZZAAPP! them into or where to you liked!! Wendy in the film and the three witches really add to its wonderful feeling it gives out. While Desmond Spellman puts that on ice while he tries to get rid of Wendy!! I really liked his harsh character, but his mirror on the wall that could speak really didn't need to be in the film. It is better off without it.

Still I gave it a well deserved 10/10!! For it pleased me very much!!
