Like Max, two of the ghosts are children, who also need a living person to help them defeat an evil apparition named Phears aiming to capture them and release mean spirits back into the world on Halloween.

During Max's magic act on Halloween, Max's red-headed brother can be seen sitting next to his mother in close-up shots; however, in far-away shots a different boy with brown hair is sitting next her. It appears that both boys are wearing the same wardrobe though. Furthermore, the man who helps Max with his card trick is seen sitting to the left of Max's parents in close-up shots but in far-away shots he is sitting to their right. See more »

Wow Disney...
12 October 2008 | by Smarties643See all my reviews

I was not expecting some movie like this from Disney. Usually, Disney makes movies that are more detailed, interesting, and not stupid. I would have to say that this movie was horrible. The special effects, flying, and costumes were terrible. I thought this was going to be a great movie, but it turned out to be a low-budget movie that Disney had to throw together really quickly for Halloween. Last Halloween, they had Twitches 2, and that was much better then this one even though the huge black cloud hand used for the "Darkness" was garbage. Some scenes were a little bit scary I would have to say; only one. But over all this movie was a waste of my time watching. Wow Disney, with all the billions of dollars you have, you at least couldn't make a decent movie that was actually good enough to sit through for 2 hours? I rate this a 3/10. I give it a 3 because I have to give it it's props, the plot was wonderful, but how they actually made it come to life was a disaster.
