From the brain behind Goosebumps comes the story of a kid whose ability to talk to ghosts might mean the difference between being cool and being a loser in his school. Kidzworld gets spooky with Mostly Ghostly.

Magic Man

Max Doyle is a magician and a geek with very few friends at school, and a dad and brother who think he should spend less time doing tricks and more time playing sports. At the same time, Max is hearing whispers coming from his family’s walls, whispers that sound like ghosts. But no one’s about believe that—not from the weirdest kid in school, anyway!

Spirited Away

Turns out, the weird kid was right—there are ghosts! Two of them in fact, Tara and Nicky Roland, and they used to live in Max’s house. That is, before they and their ghost hunter parents were turned into ghouls themselves. The Rolands were sent away by a bunch of angry spirits and their leader, the ultra evil Phears, and the only way to find them is through a secret tunnel in the Doyles’ basement. But they need the help of a living friend to get into the tunnel…and that friend is Max.

Too Ghoul for School

While Max is busy getting ready for his school talent show, the evil Phears steals Tara. Max heads down the tunnel to try to save her, but she gives him a magic ring and tells him he must return, because on Halloween Phears will be at his full powers. At the talent show Max gets some ghostly help from Nicky, but is magic enough to keep Phears and his ghastly crew from taking over? Can Max save Tara and find the Rolands? And will Max ever be cool?

DVD Features

Nothing, aside from a choice between widescreen and full screen. There’s nothing spooky about that! Boo-ring!

Bottom Line

The Mostly Ghostly book series was crazy popular, so this first movie adaptation has the potential to become a whole series of movies. Like lots of R.L. Stine’s stuff, it’s scary and funny at the same time. And with a cast that includes Ali Lohan and Noah Cyrus, the movie is good fun with some big names.
