Storyline

A young boy named Oliver and his family, who move from a bustling city to a quaint suburban neighborhood. That very night of the move, Oliver hears a piano playing in the attic, and finds a thin wall in which he breaks through to get to the attic. He meets a ghost which tells him to mind his manners, and then scares him away. Oliver wakes his parents and sister and brings them to the attic, but they do not see the ghost and think that Oliver is just thinking nonsense. Written by Jiilo_Kim

not-bad family Halloween movie
23 October 2014 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

At the film's open, Oliver McCaffrey ( Nicholas Stargel ) meets Eloise (Rhea Perlman) and helps her in the garden. His family has just moved into the neighborhood, but they soon find STRANGE things happening in their new house. Oliver notices it first, but the rest of the family won't believe him. More and more strange things happen in the house, which they can't blame on Oliver. Keep an eye out for (Clive) Martin Mull, who plays an important role in the film.. Mull has been working steadily since the 1970s. Most will remember him as the boss on Roseanne, but some of you are probably old enough to remember him from "Fernwood Tonight", back in the day. Most of the "special effects" shown here are just simple, easy tricks of editing photography and film shots, running the film backwards. It's okay. Very family friendly. Deals with youngster's issues and dealing with his dysfunctional family and school issues. Shown on the Hallmark Channel. Has pumpkins and ghosts, so I expect it will be shown just prior to Halloween each year. Written by David Golden -- looks like a lot of his work is written for Lifetime or Hallmark Channel. Directed by David Cass, who has done stunts, acting, directing movies for TV, and even writing. I see that he has worked on several films with Robert Mitchum, in uncredited roles or stunts. Got his start doing stunts for TV series in the early 60s. No date of birth shown on his IMDb page, but clearly he's been around a while and worked with some biggies.
