This has become one of my favorites! Oct. 13 2008
By Natalie K. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I have to strongly disagree with the other reviews. I liked the small town setting, the characters, and thought that the houses were interesting. I thought the story was good, scary, and provided a lot of "boo" moments. I was impressed that there was not a lot of bad language, nudity, and gore. I wish more horror films were clean. Just a good ghost story is enough for me. I'd say this film is like an adult version of a Goosebumps movie. The ending seemed to suggest a part two or perhaps a series which I will be looking forward to.

Interesting Plot Held Back by Bad Acting, a First-Draft Screenplay, and an Amateur Director June 10 2012
By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Last week I happened to catch the movie Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour on an Encore channel. I very seldom watch a movie during the day, let alone turn on the television, but after reading the title on the menu guide, I thought I would give the movie a try.

The Paranormal Hour begins with a seventeen-year-old Sarah Landon (played by Rissa Walters) returning to Pine Valley, California to visit her grandmother, Thelma Shaw. Before she arrives at her grandma's, she has car problems and stops by a local repair shop where she hears part of a disturbing story. She doesn't get the full story until she asks her grandma about it, who was more than glad to tell the tale.

A young man, David Baker, is cursed! On his 21st birthday, which is only a few days away, he will be killed by his dead uncle, Ben Woods. Years ago, Ben's son, on his 21st birthday, was killed in a car accident that David's mother caused. David was known as a good kid and was getting ready to go to college, but then he learned of the curse and cut himself off from the world. He has become obsessed with the paranormal, and is trying to find away to stop his uncle.

As his 21st birthday nears, his bother, Matt, and his new friend Sarah Landon try to prevent his death.

Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour was released in limited theaters back in 2007 running only at 81 minutes, and was a complete flop at the box-office. I never remembered the movie ever being released in theaters, let alone every seeing it advertised. The ghost curse plot seems to be interesting, but the movie is ruined with bad actors with horrible dialogue, bad camera shots, and not enough action for a paranormal story. Rissa Walters who played Sarah Landon gave the only decent performance, but she is held back by the untalented co-stars. I felt like I was watching a bad TV-Movie rather than a theatrical release. I wonder if they used a first draft script instead of a final one. I sat there for 80 minutes, as I had to find out how it ended, only for the movie to end in somewhat of a cliffhanger, in which the producers were hopping to make Sarah Landon into a film franchise.

I would only recommend the movie to families, as there is no bad language and nudity. There is some mild PG violence in it. It could be a good way to introduce a clean-cut haunting movie to your kids. Overall, I liked the premise, but I will never watch it again.

Great scare for a Tween and up Audience May 25 2012
By E.C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Sarah Landon & The Paranormal Hour is a fun scare suitable for a tween and up audience. If you are looking for "movie theatre" quality writing and acting (like some of the other reviewers) don't buy it. If you are looking for a ghost story that won't leave you or your kids with nightmares get it. Because of the way the movie ended I actually got online to find out if this was a book series so that I could buy the books...no such luck. I would watch a sequal to this film with my tween age kids. It is extremely refreshing to see drug free, clean cut, teens who are NOT drinking booze and bed hopping being portrayed in a movie...just sayin'.

Enjoyable despite the acting Aug. 10 2010
By Heather Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
First let me say that this movie had some of the worst acting I've ever seen. As soon as the voice over began, I could tell that Rissa Walters was a terrible actress. The rest of the cast was no better. I decided to continue watching it anyway.

The story was actually pretty good for a movie obviously designed for a younger audience. It reminded me of Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark. And when I think about it, the acting was pretty bad in those, too. It's not overly complicated- the spirit of a young man's uncle is supposed to kill him on his 21st birthday and Sarah Landon arrives in town just in time to investigate and help stop it. It was a nice, basic ghost story for children.

There were parts that I thought didn't make a whole lot of sense in the story. Why make a big deal about the real estate agent? Why did the ghost of Sarah's friend Megan warn her to get out of the guest house when nothing happened there? But I found myself enjoying the movie despite these things and the terrible acting. The story moved quickly and I never found myself wondering how long I'd been watching. I might even watch one of the sequels if they are ever made. I'd just never pay to watch it.
Kind of a clunky ghost story June 5 2009
By Roger Bagula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The scene where the guy is sitting inside a circle of turnips shaped like sculls with candles in them in a Halloween mask is worth the watching of this one ( supposed Druid ritual?). The "crazy" brother is almost over the top enough. The costuming of the lead leaves something to be desired.
For me the romance between the lead and the younger brother should have had more tension or pathos ( something more?)? The spirit villain isn't really scary enough and the sleep walking lady isn't very convincing as a threat?
For me this looks like a lot of first timer errors
in casting and costumes. For instance if the ghost had blood coming out his ears or something, it would have upped the tension level?
The location was pretty good and the old houses were nice:
actually more realistic than a lot of Hollywood products.
