Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour Reviews
It's not so much a bad film as it is a bland and forgettable one with a lackluster cast. Considering how many surnames that appear more than once throughout the credits, nepotism was running rampant here. But it's also a shining example of why hiring your family may not help your film any. Newcomer Rissa Walters stars as Sarah, and she's a pretty enough girl but is seriously lacking in screen presence. The script is real goody-goody despite a few mature details of the story, and that helps to make the film a little more bearable. The unintentional laughs also help, but not enough.
The central mystery that makes up the movie's plot is not totally without interest, but in the same respect, it could have easily been lifted from a decades-old Nancy Drew book or a mediocre "Scooby Doo" episode. "Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour" is a curious film that is no better or worse than the recent big-budget "Nancy Drew" film. Anybody other than pre-teen girls should have something better to do.
