It pops up occasionally on TV still. Lukas Haas plays a young boy...perhaps around 4th or 5th grade maybe, who gets locked in his schools cloak room around Halloween. While locked inside he is terrified to see a spectral play acted out before him as a little girl is murdered by an unknown man.
The killer returns to the cloak room to look for something and finds Haas and tries to kill him as well. He's rescued but now he is haunted by the little girl who wants him to find her killer.
He receives messages from her typed out on his typewriter and the record player goes on by itself much to the terror of Haas. Then there is the mysterious Lady in White, living in the old, run down home who seems a ghost herself.
As Frankie (haas) and his older brother try and solve the mystery, somewhere the killer knows who he is and is waiting.
Wonderful piece. Great 1960's midwest nostalgia. Fantastic performances and a genuine feeling of dread make this a great ghost story.
This is a very good movie that is proof that you don't need a huge budget to make a good movie. The film is blessed with good acting and a very good story that is almost never slow. The film punctuates the suspense with humor, so you are sure to experience a wide range of emotions over the course of the two hours or so. I would recommend this movie to people that like suspense and a good ghost story without all the gore and foul language that goes along with many films. It is a ghost story that will entertain almost anyone.
As the story unfolds there are lots of little twists and turns before everything comes together at the end. There is suspense & mystery mixed in with everyday events. It is surprisingly well done. The only complaint I have is that there are parts of this film that are over the top but, overall, this is a well-done mystery/ghost story.
He soon begins seeing the ghost, and later learns it was a little girl Melissa Montgomery who was murder years ago. Since that time more children have died. As he begins to solve the riddle of the murders, accusations falls to the janitor - a black man - a touch very reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird. Franklie suspects the accusations against the man were false, that it was someone else, someone very close to him responsible for the murders.
It's haunting, atmospheric, but also such a touching family drama, like the running battle Frankie's grandmother has trying to get her husband to stop smoking, and the closeness between Frankie and his brother.
Just a touching, brilliant movie that never loses its fascination.

I've loved this movie ...Something about it grabs your
attention. The small town, unsolved murder mysteries,and halloween. I guess that about says it.
A well written story of murder, ghosts and small towns. This movie didn't much attention upon release that remember, but my family watched it when it hit HBO or Showtime. Read morePublished on Dec 5 2002 by Brian P. Kelley
Well to sum it up the movie could have been better. I think the script was well written by Frank LaLoggia, but poorly acted out by the actors. Read morePublished on Oct. 26 2002
This movie feels like a throw-back to those Hollywood greats of the post-War years, offering a bloated cocktail of comedy, spooky dry-ice-enhanced sets, tacky special effects and... Read morePublished on Aug. 11 2002 by Steve Benner
