5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT---NEEDS TO BE RE-RELEASED Feb. 18 2004
I would LOVE to have this movie on DVD, but it's out of print and now going for a princely sum on the secondary market. This great period piece of early 1960's nostalgia is one of the better ghost stories you will ever see.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ghost story/murder mystery. Aug. 10 2002
By Kim F.
A young boy witnesses the ghostly reinactment of a murder then has a run-in with the murderer who almost kills him as well. His near-death experience seems to link him to the murder victim (a young girl) who asks him to help her find her mother.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for viewing for Halloween Oct. 29 2003
When thinking of my favourite Halloween films, this has to be at the top. It works on so many levels. A warm, loving, tale that just demands repeat viewing. Writer/director/musical composer/costar Frank LaLoggia did it his way and it's such a masterpiece. Ite shown as a flashback of Frankie's life, and the ghost he met as a child. When he was 9, he was accidentally locked in the cloakroom at school on Halloween night. There he comes face to face with the ghost of a little girl who was murdered. Later in the night, he is almost killed. The night changes his life.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quality suspense film March 21 2002
The Lady in White is a quality film for all those that like ghost movies. This film is less of a horror film and more of a film that leaves you guessing about what is going to happen next. The plot deals with a young boy named Frankie who, while locked in the coat room at school, sees more than he was supposed to. The remainder of the film deals with Frankie and his brother trying to untangle the wed of mystery that results from Frankie's observations. Along the way they discover the Lady in White who adds fright and suspense to the 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghostly Masterpiece Feb. 6 2002
You know there should be a rule that not all horror films have to have blood and guts and with so few good ghosts stories its great to find one worth viewing. Taking a cue from Ray Bradbury, Director Frank LaLoggia brings a haunting tale that uses some of the more classic elements of fright and suspense that made films of the sixties great. The Lady In White opens up to a small New England town during the Halloween season of the early 1960's. A young boy and his brother bicycle past the storefronts and the whole town is preparing to enjoy another holiday season. At school the young boy thrills his class with a creepy tale of terror, and giving his teacher a strange sense of shock. The young boy meets with his friends and ends up locked in a closet due to a cruel prank. Later that evening the young boy sees a ghost of a young girl who was murdered years before. Shortly afterward someone enters the closet to search for a missing item, the boy startles the intruder and is caught and choked. In a weird series of events we are witness to the boys death and the subsequent grief of his family and those close to him, there he again encounters the young girl and the ghost of her mother. His father finds him and the town is relieved for his safety and startled to hear that a child killer may have returned. With the fear in the minds of the townsfolk's a black man is caught and may very well be innocent. The whole town is a frenzy and it seems that the killer may well indeed be someone close to the boy. Are the ghosts trying to tell him something and what does it have to do with the mysterious old woman who lives by the cliffs. Read more ›

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 more
