Looking for a "horror film" for kids
on 11 November 2008
Then this is one of the best. It's fun with a moral.
The movie rating says 12 or over, but my friends 10 year old thinks it's great, but judgement is best left to sensible adults.
Cassie (Emily Osment, Haley Joel "I see dead people" Osment's little sister) is the new girl at the school and is having a hard time fitting in. Especially after she becomes the target of Priscilla, the school beauty, who thinks she is trying to make a move on what she considers to be her date for the dance, Sean (Cody Linley).
In order to get revenge after she is embarrassed by Priscilla Cassie decides to play tricks on those who annoy her, inlcuding Priscilla - who in turn plots her own revenge on Cassie, with the apparently gullable Sean in tow.
As halloween approaches Cassie comes across a shop which deals with occult items and buys a book called "The Evil Thing", which contains a warning "Do not read out loud", unfortunately Cassie wants to frighten her little brother and reads it out loud, and the evil thing is released.
The subtitles available are: English, Danish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
The soundtrack is available in: English, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
It's a good film, very enjoyable for any adult sat with children, and only a little bit scary for the young.
