Haunts of the Olde Country

USA, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Keith Melton

Eleven year old Anthony is on vacation with his family in the 'olde' country where, together, they all visit an old castle. After being banished to the bus for his alleged misbehaviour, Anthony's real tour of the castle begins. Accompanied by the castle's resident ghost, Anthony is turned into a dog by the local witch and meets some of the most famous ghosts in England's history.

Originally shot in 4D, the film is a mind blowing pageant of special effects and rollicking good fun and shows what can happen when you let your imagination run wild!
