Brief Review

The movie is too long. Some relationship-building and side trips could have been eliminated. But this movie is not bad. It is a solid family-friendly Halloween movie. Although there are probably no “A-List” actors in the film, it is stacked with B-List, and I enjoyed the performances by LaKeith and Rosario Dawson. I laughed at a few scenes, and one of the scary scenes made a young child in the theater cry. The plot made sense and still integrated the ride experience. Kids will be dying to see this on Disney Plus come Halloween.
