Pretty awful made-for-tv movie (Animal Planet) about a young girl (pre-fame Ellen Page of Juno) and a spooky ghost cat. This was filmed a while ago but just recently released on DVD, probably because Page is becoming more famous and they wanted to cash in on that. With kooky spooky antics that would not scare an eight year old, I was bored out of my mins through most of this feature. But Ellen is my favorite actress, so I had to check it out. Worth watching for the die hard fan, but it's going to bore most everyone else. Proof positive that actors need to make some crappy movies before they have the ability to choose their films just so they can get their name out there.

Ghost Cat is a Treat for the Whole Family!

"This movie, "Ghost Cat" was very well done. It was featured on Animal Planet near Halloween time, a couple of years ago.
I have been asking the studio to release it on DVD ever since.
Ghost Cat stars a young Ellen Page, who already had quite the screen presence in this movie, before she hit it big in future movies.
It is the story about a young girl (Page) who's Mom dies, and the girl and her Dad move to a new house in the town where her deceased Mom had grown up.
While looking for a new house the Father and daughter see a charming house for sale. The house is owned by Mrs Ashboro, who lives there with her cat, Margaret. Mrs Ashboro points out that she doesnt want to sell the house, that her overzealous nephew, put the "For Sale" sign out without her permission.
We later learn that the Nephew has an ulterior motive for wanting the house sold..namely the money that he would get from the sale.
Mrs Ashboro is surprised when she sees the young girl (Page) petting her cat, Margaret, because Margaret isnt used to alot of visitors and doesnt do well with alot of folks.
To make a long story short, Mrs Ashboro dies, and her cat Margaret dies shortly after...obviously of a broken heart.
That's where the fun begins......Margaret, the caring soul that she is, comes back in spirit and helps the young girl and her friends to keep the house out of the hands of the greedy Nephew.
Margaret saves the day, as cats so often do in movies and in real life.
This is a charming movie that you will want to watch over and over again with your family members (two legged AND four legged).
It is spooky, but not scary like a horror movie.
It has just the right balance of fun, happiness, spookiness, and joy.
I will be buying the DVD.
I hope that you will too....it makes a great movie to watch every Halloween season with your family."

I liked this story. If you are an animal lover
like me you will probably like it too. An older
lady and her cat pass away. The cat's ghost comes
back to help new owners of the lady's house. A
greedy bad guy wants to tear down an animal shelter.
Story is cool because it's about a community that
kicks back against land take overs. I don't care much for seances,
but everything else is great. Buy it!"
A great hallowen movie

"I first saw this in 2004 and have been waiting for the DVD ever since. I won't recap Matthew's review because it is complete. I will say I am glad this movie finally made it to DVD. I will be buying a copy. It is a family story with the highlight on animals and human courage and belief."
