5.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Cat is a Treat for the Whole Family! August 29, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie, "Ghost Cat" was very well done. It was featured on Animal Planet near Halloween time, a couple of years ago.
I have been asking the studio to release it on DVD ever since.

Ghost Cat stars a young Ellen Page, who already had quite the screen presence in this movie, before she hit it big in future movies.

It is the story about a young girl (Page) who's Mom dies, and the girl and her Dad move to a new house in the town where her deceased Mom had grown up.

While looking for a new house the Father and daughter see a charming house for sale. The house is owned by Mrs Ashboro, who lives there with her cat, Margaret. Mrs Ashboro points out that she doesnt want to sell the house, that her overzealous nephew, put the "For Sale" sign out without her permission.

We later learn that the Nephew has an ulterior motive for wanting the house sold..namely the money that he would get from the sale.

Mrs Ashboro is surprised when she sees the young girl (Page) petting her cat, Margaret, because Margaret isnt used to alot of visitors and doesnt do well with alot of folks.

To make a long story short, Mrs Ashboro dies, and her cat Margaret dies shortly after...obviously of a broken heart.

That's where the fun begins......Margaret, the caring soul that she is, comes back in spirit and helps the young girl and her friends to keep the house out of the hands of the greedy Nephew.

Margaret saves the day, as cats so often do in movies and in real life.

This is a charming movie that you will want to watch over and over again with your family members (two legged AND four legged).

It is spooky, but not scary like a horror movie.

It has just the right balance of fun, happiness, spookiness, and joy.

I will be buying the DVD.

I hope that you will too....it makes a great movie to watch every Halloween season with your family.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great hallowen movie September 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this in 2004 and have been waiting for the DVD ever since. I won't recap Matthew's review because it is complete. I will say I am glad this movie finally made it to DVD. I will be buying a copy. It is a family story with the highlight on animals and human courage and belief.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Kitty December 8, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this story. If you are an animal lover
like me you will probably like it too. An older
lady and her cat pass away. The cat's ghost comes
back to help new owners of the lady's house. A
greedy bad guy wants to tear down an animal shelter.
Story is cool because it's about a community that
kicks back against land take overs. I don't care much for seances,
but everything else is great. Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing story for animal lovers May 22, 2014
By Valerie
Format:Amazon Instant Video
On a whim we decided to stream this movie, simply because the idea of a "ghost cat" was intriguing. It's actually a television film that was made for Animal Planet, and appropriately there is a fairly large emphasis on the animals in the story--but not overly so. The animals don't talk or anything like that, they are portrayed in a more realistic fashion...with the exception of the ghost cat, of course! She tends to act like a feline Lassie, guiding people to important discoveries or emergencies.

The acting is decent, and even the animals do a good job. The actions of the "bad guys" do tend to be a bit overdone, but this just makes it easy to root for the good guys, who are actually pretty likable despite the fact that some things (romances, in particular) are rather easy to predict. The casting was done well; everyone fit into their roles nicely with the exception of Kurt (Shawn Roberts), who looked quite a bit too old for the part he was playing. This made the slowly budding romance between him and Natalie a bit weird, since she was said to be in 9th grade, but Kurt looked early 20's--despite the fact that he was supposedly only in 11th grade. (In reality the actors only have 3 years separating them, but the age difference looked far larger on screen.) This is really the only flaw I can find to mention, and with a bit of imagination you can fairly easily overlook it.

There's no inappropriate content, and the language is mild as well. There were a few instances of "Oh my God!", but I can't remember anything else that might be offensive.

Animal lovers will obviously enjoy the story the most, but I'd be willing to bet that alot of kids would probably like it, too. Those who aren't animal lovers will likely scoff at it, and admittedly it's not very realistic...

I like this movie with a touch of young love. Interesting that she is the only one that can see and hear the cat. Well, for a while only. I am glad the bad guys didn't win. :)

This movie is in the vein of the Nancy Drew tv series and as such is geared more towards children. It's also a simple delight for adult viewing. Read more
