Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour
Source: Catholic News Service
Cheaply made rip-off of the R.L. Stine "Goosebumps" formula of ghost stories for preteens. The plot involves a plucky 17-year-old (newcomer Rissa Walters), who, visiting Pine Valley, Calif., tries to help an older boy (Brian Comrie, son of the directors-screenwriters) who is haunted by a ghost (Rusty Hanes) who has threatened to kill him on his 21st birthday because the boy's mother (Nicole Des Coteaux) accidentally killed his nephew (Ben Comrie). Incompetently written and directed by the husband and wife team John and Lisa Comrie, and clumsily acted, with only a couple of "hells," fleeting images of ghosts and some spooky music to preclude the youngest viewers. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
