Storyline

Further complications beset the life of young, aspiring magician Max when he finds only he can see and hear the ghosts that have come to reside in his family's relatively new home (former home of the ghosts). 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.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Not a DCOM!
17 October 2008 | by barnumo1See all my reviews

I wish people would actually read a movie's production information prior to making comments. This is not a DCOM, but rather a Universal Direct-to-DVD release based on the R.L. Stine books. Disney Channel picked up broadcasting rights as part of its Wiztober promotion (probably at a fire-sale price). With so many past DCOM and DC stars, and a DC showing, I can understand why an uninformed person would think it was produced by Disney, but even DC has some standards for production that this movie doesn't meet. Poor special effects, poor acting, poor first AND second unit directing. Ali Lohan has less acting ability at 14 than her older sister had when she was 11. Overall, a poor adaptation of a pretty popular book. Don't look for any sequels!
