"The Lady In White" is the sort of story that
might have been concocted by Steven King if he had gone to work
for Walt Disney. If that sounds simultaneously scary and quirky,
that is because it is. When young Frankie Scarlatti (Lukas
Haas) is locked in a school closet during Halloween 1962,
he witnesses the ghostly depiction of the murder of a young
girl that occurred there years before. When the girl's murder
returns to the scene of the crime later that evening he encounters
Frankie and comes dangerously close to killing him. Although
Frankie is rescued and returned to his loving family he continues
to be haunted by what he saw on Halloween night. Before long
Frankie finds himself stalked by the killer and is eventually
drawn to an old house where a mysterious Lady In White (Katherine
Helmond) lives. Audiences will find themselves drawn into
this murder mystery - ghost story just as Frankie is. This smart,
stylish film is a perfect "Halloween ghost story" for the younger
set, scary but not too gory. Adults will find the films superlative
performances and nostalgic 1960s feel to be particularly enchanting.
