  • Summary: Far away from home, in the small town of Pine Valley, Sarah Landon finds herself all alone while staying at the guest house of her late friend's grandmother. When she promised to visit, she didn't realize she wouldn't be staying in the main house, and she didn't realize that the guest house was haunted. Or at least it seemed that way...

    There's something clumsily charming about Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour.

    It’s as not-unpleasantly amateurish as the regional genre movies that four-walled rural theaters in the days before video. But do-nothing Sarah may be the dullest, most featureless and inactive protagonist in recent movies.

    The supernatural plot elements are developed so unconvincingly that the story seems to be about people ruining their own lives by believing in stupid superstitions, so it’s a shock to realize the ghostly goings-on are meant to be taken seriously.

    The film is sunk by a pervasive stasis, the byproduct not of mood but of the filmmakers’ amateurish abilities. If there’s one thing Nick and Disney know, it’s that youthful entertainment needs to keep moving.

    A dull little PG-rated spook story for tweener girls.
