Movie Reviews

So GOOD it's Spooky
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought Spooky House for my grandchildren ages 4 and 10. We watched it together three times on Thanksgiving. Then they watched it three more times the next day. It is great entertainment and a moving story for everyone. The kid characters are great. Mercedes is a super comedian. Ben is threatening and then loving. Disney wishes they had made this one!"
A Truly Magic, Heartwarming Film
William Ritchie | Washington, DC United States | 11/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Produder/Director,William Sachs has crafted a simple storyline and turned it into very charming, funny, and touching tale that is perfect for the whole family.
Ben Kingsley, as Zamboni, "The Spooky Man", turns in a masterful performance in concert with the new, natural, and talented Matt Weinberg as Kingsley's young counterpart and eventual cohort.
Encountering the "bad kids", ably headed by Mercedes Ruehl,
our young group of heroes, lead by Kingsley and Weinberg, send us on a merry chase with magic illusions and a surprise, touching conclusion which wraps up the adventure in a delightful way.
This is a little classic with a big heart that belongs in everyone's video library. And, for once, the price is quite reasonable (for the DVD)."
Spooky House is a must see for the entire family!
Laura Hope | Woodland Hills, CA USA | 11/05/2003

"Spooky House is magical fun for the entire family. Award winning Ben Kingsley as the 'Great Zamboni' is true to form as is award winning Mercedes Ruehl as the campy 'Boss'. The kids are adorable. The music will keep your toes tapping and your kids dancing. A winner!"

"I thought this was a great family film. Ben Kingsly does a fantastic acting job. The story is very moving and a great view for the children. I would recommend this film to any parent with young kids."
