A teenager discovers that ghosts walk in her old hometown in this family-friendly supernatural mystery. Sarah Landon (Rissa Walters) is a pretty 17-year-old who pays a visit to Pine Valley, CA, the small town where she grew up; when she unexpectedly has car trouble, she finds herself in town for a few days rather than an afternoon. Sarah is staying with Mrs. Shaw (Jane Harris), whose late daughter, Megan, was Sarah's best friend when they were kids. Sarah encounters another friend from her high school days, Matt Baker (Dan Comrie), and Sarah learns things have not been happy for Matt's family in recent years. His mother was at the wheel during a car accident that claimed the life of his cousin, and the late boy's father swore revenge shortly before his death. Since then, Matt's older brother has slipped into madness, Matt fears for his future, and some locals believe a malevolent spirit follows the family. Sarah teams up with Matt to find out the truth about what's happening in Mill Valley, and discovers evidence that supernatural forces may well be at work, especially after Megan warns Sarah in a dream about the dangers of playing amateur sleuth. Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour was the first directorial credit for Lisa Comrie; her brother John Comrie wrote the screenplay and co-produced, while three other members of the Comrie family appear in the cast.

Common Sense Says
Clumsy, tween-focused thriller wastes potential.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that though this tween-targeted, PG-rated "horror" movie is pretty tame -- there's no serious swearing, just a little kissing, and no real gore -- some parts may still be too scary for little kids. The ghostly special effects aren't sophisticated, but sensitive young viewers may be convinced enough to be frightened. Talk of evil spirits and supernatural rituals may also disturb, as may a scene in which an old woman parades around with a shotgun.
