CATHERINE'S GHOST

A troubled young boy enlists the help of the girl next door to solve the mystery of a killer ghost.

It's tough when you're new in town, so Alex is especially glad to meet Sam, the sassy, fast-talking, whip-smart girl who lives across the street. He's a little less happy when Sam introduces him to the local legend of Catherine's Ghost, a killer apparition whose appearance means your days are numbered. Or so goes the story.

It isn't long before Alex learns that the legend of the ghost isn't exactly what it appears to be...and neither is Sam.

CATHERINE’S GHOST is more a psychological horror film than a gore-fest, similar in tone and feel to “The Others” or “The Sixth Sense.” The story in the first film is meant to serve as a springboard for additional films centered around SAM & ALEX. Forced to move to new towns by Ruth’s ever-changing work, Alex has the chance to find haunted houses in each new place…and Sam will be there to help him.
