It is not deep or big in any way
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

The story, though thoroughly commercial, is fair, for it not only has something going on all the time, but it does, for a moment, make us feel something strange and weird about that ramshackle place called the haunted house. Yet it is not deep or big in any way. for it takes a queer, not logical or convincing, way to work out its intention, to make friends of the two feudists. In most pictures it is the children who bring about the reconciliation, but here it is the old people. It is fairly acted and clear in its photography. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
