Ghost in the attic
1 November 2015 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Oliver's Ghost is a family film with a spooky twist and a message that families should listen to each other and be for each other.

The McCaffrey's have moved from their bustling city life to their new home and hope to spend more time together and less at work.

Their youngest son, 11 year old Oliver hears some noises in the attic and gets bullied at school. His older sister does little to help and wrapped up in her own world.

Oliver discovers that the attic has a ghost who has been hanging around for 40 years and explains why previous owners have the house have quickly departed.

The trouble is Oliver cannot get other members of the family to see the ghost and it seems that the ghost has unfinished business regarding his daughter before he can move on.

This is a made for television film which has its moments and plenty of charm that younger kids will enjoy. Martin Mull has a ball as the abrasive ghost who understands Oliver more than his family.
