I loved this movie -
4 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie had a weird feel to it - I loved it - the 80's feel and music, the lovable Lewis - several of the reviewers got the plot wrong - it was fast paced - didn't leave you bored in places, waiting for the movie to pick up again. I felt the acting was quite good - the lead actors were just plain old kids, they had ambition, wanted to make their dream of movie-making come true, and had to figure out how to finance it. The ghost was an additional problem suddenly thrown into the mix - I loved the sets - the gadgets -
