What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that R.L. Stine's Mostly Ghostly: One Night in Doom House is the 2016 entry in this movie series from the creator of Goosebumps. Based on the premise of a teen's friendship with two young ghosts who inhabit his home, the stories send the hero into action-packed, cartoonish adventures that involve magic, dastardly otherworldly villains, and lots of slapstick jeopardy. Spooky lighting, storms, eerie music, ominous buildings, and lots of things that go bump in the night fill the screen. When a cackling scoundrel wants to "release an army of ghosts upon the world and plunge it into darkness," it's clearly not intended for young kids who aren't comfortable with real versus imaginary violence. There's a bit of teen romance, peer pressure (including a bullying rich kid), and family dissension, all which serve to make the leading character sympathetic and relatable. As usual, teachers and parents are clueless and, though responsible and concerned, are not there to save the day. Note: To keep the familiar characters the same ages, the cast is made up of new actors.
