The Canterville Ghost 2000 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Patrick Stewart gives an outstanding performance in the title role of this high-spirited, new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic tale of mystery, romance, and adventure. The fun begins as the unsuspecting Otis family moves into the stately, rambling rooms of Canterville Hall where young Virginia (Neve Campbell, “Party of Five”) meets up with the castle’s resident specter: the 400-year-old ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville (Stewart). But while Sir Simon does his moaning, chain-rattling best to frighten the newcomers, Virginia soon befriends him, and learns the sorrowful secret: unless a purehearted mortal agrees to plead his case before the dreaded “Angel of Death,” Sir Simon will be doomed to haunt the Hall for all eternity. With the midnight moment of truth approaching, Virginia prepares for a journey into the unknown—in a hair raising conclusion to this all-time favorite tale of ancient spirits, young love, and otherworldly adventures!
