The Little Ghost


Gather around to watch this spook-tacular tale of a lonely little ghost in a big castle. Little Ghost can go out into the world for just one hour during the night. His biggest wish is to go outside during daytime—in other words, he’s ready to make his day-boo. Due to a paranormal occurrence, his wish is granted, and he flies outside to the nearby town at the stroke of noon. But things soon go wrong as the sunlight turns him black and the townspeople can see him. Little Ghost causes a BIG commotion and the local police go on a hunt to capture him. He’s as spooked as the townspeople are! How can he show them he’s not mean spirited? Just when his luck is running out, some brave children help him find his way back to the castle.

Dove Review

This is a foreign film featuring comedy and charm. “The Little Ghost” is a funny tale about how a very small night ghost gets his time of haunting turned around to the day light hour between noon and one. As with most adults they do not believe in ghosts, so when Karl tells what he knows about the missing watch no one believes him until the town experiences a phenomenon during the activities of celebration.

As in most foreign movies, it obtains subtitles for those that are not fluent in the German language. It is an entertaining family movie even though you may have to read what is being said for younger children, and new readers, that are un-accustomed to reading fast. The Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages is awarded to “The Little Ghost”.
