Who doesn’t know Casper the friendly ghost who with his three pesky and annoying co-ghosts live in the haunted mansion known as Whipstaff. The movie is a classic with the famous line, “Can I Keep You”, spoken by the ghost who finds a friend in the character of Christina Ricci who plays Kat, daughter of the paranormal expert played by Bill Pullman. Bill or rather Dr James Harvey is hired to get rid of the ghost infestation in the Whipstaff manor mansion which was inherited by greedy Heiress Carreigan Crittenden who wants to tear down the mansion but is prevented from doing so by the resident supernatural beings, namely Casper and his three uncles. Kinda’ more for the kids but the story line is more of blind love rather than pure child’s play.
The movie was produced by legend Steven Spielberg who along with director Brad Silberling did a wonderful job of adapting the character created in 1940 by Joe Orolio into a masterpiece of one of the earliest CGI movies of all time.
