Ben, expelled from a private school for tricking two younger boys with a fake ghost, helps his new girlfriend by intimidating two local bullies with an even more elaborately rigged “haunted house.” But there's also a real ghost in the neighborhood that leads the teenagers to the troubled history of their respective families; no one will tell them anything, so they investigate together. The film suffers from Robert Tinnell's often manipulative direction, his needlessly busy camera, and the teens' sometimes wooden acting, but some scenes are engaging, and the denouement, which suggests that love can heal a divided family, is quite affecting. 96 min.
