Between the candy, costumes and creepy decorations, what’s not to love about Halloween as a child? Eloise discovers that it’s not all fun and games, however, when the hotel becomes haunted by both a lovable spirit and a few shady businessmen pretending to be ghosts. Brave kids age four and up will love Eloise’s attempts to solve this slightly spooky mystery. Typical Halloween events, such as bobbing for apples and eating pumpkin pancakes, intermingle with a swinging ghost party and a hilariously possessed roasted chicken throwing mashed potatoes at a diner will keep kids entertained throughout the film.
Since the main themes of this DVD are being brave and standing up for your beliefs, kids can learn some valuable lessons. Eloise demonstrates her bravery in confronting an amiable ghost who only wants to have fun and proves to be persistent in proving to her friends and the hotel staff that she’s not making up the haunting. She throws in a good anti-smoking message, too, when she tells the century-old, cigar-smoking ghost that tobacco is bad for your health before replacing the cigar with a lollipop. The mystery set up is fun and lets kids follow along and try to figure out the culprits of the non-ghost related haunting.
