Convicted embezzler Witt Hampton escapes from prison and while hiding out in an isolated country barn is discovered by young Cassy and her brother Jack. After convincing them he's a friendly ghost that only they can see, the three new friends embark on one imaginative adventure after another until, inspired by their innocent spirits, Witt vows to redeem his crimes. But, a by-the-book sheriff-who has sworn to personally put Hampton back behind bars-is closing in, and Witt may never get the chance to finally set things right.

Whistle Down The Wind Redux
30 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I am amazed at what this horrible film has gotten away with. This is a total ripoff of Whistle Down The Wind. Whistle Down the Wind was originally written by Mary Hayley Bell. She had written it for her daughter, the actress Hayley Mills. The original story/film is about a convict who hides out in a barn. The convict is discovered by two children. The convict "convinces" the children that he is in fact, the "opposite" of a convict. He convinces them he is more of a "savior." Even Andrew Lloyd Weber knew enough to give credit where credit is due, when he decided to use the story as a basis for a musical. I guess the makers of this film assumed that Americans would be clueless to the theft...or that most people who saw the original would either be dead by now, or wouldn't remember the original. What I will say for this "version", is that it would appear they did most of their casting with the extras/town folks from the film Deliverance.
