This movie was better than John Gielgud version (matter of opinion)but both are well worth buying! Both are heart warming and moral valued so if you want to OWN 2 great movies? Either one or both will do. I give both movies 5 out or 5 stars no matter how many times they are watched!

The first time I saw this movie, I was enjoying a night alone in my house. I turned on the t.v., expecting to see a very different movie, and instead, I was surprised with a wonderful adaptation of what had been a favorite story of mine when I was a little kid. Patrick Stewart is wonderful as the tormented ghost, I fell in love with the "boy-next-door", and you find yourself rooting for Neve Campbell, and hoping her father will change for the better. I will definately be looking for this movie later.

Patrick Stewart's portrayal of the ghost was delightful and poignant and he wove into his role some Shakespeare which added depth. Neve Campbell was also exceptional as the young child who believed and shed her tears for the ghost's release.

There are at least seven versions of Oscar Wilde's THE CANTERVILLE GHOST out on DVD as of 2007. Can a slightly-dated, made for TV version really be worth your time and money? Can Patrick Stewart carry the title role as well as or better than Charles Laughton or John Gielgud?

YES!

The role requires the Ghost to be a Shakespearean and Stewart is a natural as the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, and Elizabethan Lord caught in limbo, ever regretting the involuntary manslaughter of his beloved.

Of course, the ghost encounters a modern American tenant of his manor. The daughter and her brothers discover that Sir Simon is more bluster than horror and set out to lift the curse.

Good supporting cast overcomes so-so production values. Good on-site locale helps.

A great follow-on to this DVD would be the classic 1930's campy drama 'The Ghost Goes West,' where a US grocery magnate buys a Scottish castle--with ghost, of course.

This version of THE CANTERVILLE GHOST has just the right blend of wit, romance, and pathos. Go for it!

This is extremly well done. the scenery shots are magnificent. The story is a wonderful variation on several old ghost/haunting stories combined with a new twist. Great family film.

This isn't quite what Oscar wrote but it is an excellent variation. Mr Wilde wrote a comedy and this has made a drama of it. It is very good. My wife, daughter and granddaughter also liked it. The story has had other adaptations, one I saw during WW2 and the most recent comedy version. It is a Good story for drama and for comedy.

"Canterville Ghost" is a wonderful, family-friendly movie. Patrick Stewart and Neve Campbell are fantastic in their roles, as one would expect. Based on a short story by Oscar Wilde, "Canterville Ghost" has had several adaptations. This particular version is my favorite. Sir Simon Canterville (Patrick Stewart) is a tormented soul. He is also quite dead, trapped in Canterville Hall these past 300 years by a curse. When an American family comes to stay, Sir Simon tries every ghostly trick in his arsenal to drive them away, but to no avail. The children are the only ones who can actually see him, and the parents think Sir Simon's antics are actually childish pranks. When Ginny (Neve Campbell) gets blamed for scaring her little brothers, she has had enough. She stalks the secret passages in search of the real culprit. Friendship blossoms between the troubled ghost and troubled teen, and the two set out to secure the redemption that will free Sir Simon from his ghostly prison.
"Canterville Ghost" is a wonderful tale. Sure, it can be a bit campy in the telling, but it is an ageless story of love and anger, loss and redemption. This particular version captures equally the humor and the angst of Wild's story. Patrick Stewart brings Sir Simon to life, while anyone who suffered the growing pains of the teenage years or had siblings will recognize a bit of themselves in Neve Campbell's Ginny. It is well worth 92 minutes of your time.
