SPOOKY HOUSE (Limited Theatrical Release USA 2002)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Spooky House—interesting, fanciful, sweet, and at times comical—relies on the skills of Ben Kingsley, who as usual, pulls off a sophisticated, artistic, and completely professional rendition of his character, The Great Zamboni. The unexpected conclusion pulls at the heart strings and the audience can walk away with that feel good ‘We have been entertained’ experience. Don’t be put off by the title. The movie is not a horror film. It works more at the very good soft mystery level.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes.  The movie is a superior child/adult, light afternoon share and sits among the better magician movies that have been produced. Whimsical, with great stage settings. Can easily be re-watched for the rich stage settings alone.
