Ah, another childhood favorite. Today let's take a look at....
The Lady In White
Little Frankie (Lukas Haas) is locked in the (rather voluminous) closet of his school's classroom. As autumn day turns into night, he is disturbed by the image of a ghostly girl. He witnesses a re-enactment of her murder, and sees her lifeless body carried out of the closet by... someone. And then he, himself, is attacked.
The titular lady in white is an old woman who lives in a cottage by the cliffs. I won't reveal how she plays into the story, or who the murderer of the young girl turns out to be (although, even as a kid, I'd guessed it long before for the film's climax).
The Lady In White is a good, old-fashioned ghost story. I watched it years ago with my mom, and loved the cinematography. It worked well with the New England setting during Autumn as the changing leaves fell, and kids celebrated Halloween. In fact, now is the perfect time of year to watch this movie. So, go and rent (or stream) it. Now!
