Spooky Stakeout 2016
1h 29min | Adventure | 4 October 2016 (USA)
Four young friends are hired to solve the particularly vexing mystery of an ancient haunted castle. Having cut their teeth on previous cases – an abandoned school building and a derelict hotel Team Spooky is surprised to find a common thread behind all three mysteries. Each of the friends is driven by different motivations – whether it is for science, romance or monetary gain – but finding the real ghost is their ultimate goal. Full of age-appropriate scares and humor, SPOOKY STAKEOUT is a family adventure in the vein of GOOSEBUMPS and THE HAUNTING HOUR.
It can be hard to find a kid’s film that’s as good at keeping me entertained as it is for keeping my son quiet, but Spooky Stakeout manages it! This film is genuinely laugh out loud funny, and it had enough scares to keep the two of us on our toes. Each character was engaging and interesting and had their own hilarious motivation for partaking in film’s ghost hunt. If you’re looking for an interesting, spooky and truly funny film to keep you and your child occupied on a rainy day, make it this one!!
