Ghoster is a not-too-spooky family movie with plot twists, riddles, and a little bit of comedy that make for an exciting Halloween movie night for families with younger kids. Moviegoers familiar with Casper will definitely notice some parallels, but that's where the two stories part. Ghoster was trapped there by Yuto, an evil ghost dragon who wants to steal souls and gain eternal life. The spooky scenes featuring the dragon aren't too dark or scary and are laced with some humor to lighten the mood.

The film doesn't take itself too seriously, and though it's a simple story that's not going to be winning any awards, it's packed with good clean fun and some surprising twists, making it a fine choice for a family movie night.
