Who says there are no such things as ghosts? The citizens of Friendship, Maine, have long suspected that the abandoned and desolate Whipstaff Manor is haunted.

Then, one day, two new visitors show up on the doorstep of the draughty old mansion: Kat Harvey and her eccentric dad, Dr. James Harvey, a self-styled "ghost therapist." Whipstaff's scheming owner, Carrigan Crittenden, has hired Dr. Harvey to exorcise the house's live-in apparitions - a friendly but lonely young ghost named Casper and his three incorrigibly odious uncles, Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso - so that she can get her hands on the macabre manor's fabled treasure. Unfortunately for Dr. Harvey, the spectral uncles, who lead dysfunctional afterlives, will not tolerate "fleshies" in their house. What's more, the Ghostly Trio have their own methods of getting rid of unwanted visitors - and a certifiably twisted sense of humour.

A modern Cinderella story, Casper is a live-action fun-house ride from Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures, directed by Brad Silberling and produced by Colin Wilson with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Gerald R. Molen and Jeffrey A. Montgomery. Christina Ricci stars as Kat Harvey, with Bill Pullman as Dr Harvey, Cathy Moriarty as Carrigan Crittenden and Eric Idle playing her sycophant partner, Dibs. They join forces with many of the creators of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Jurrassic Park, stretching the boundaries of computer-generated special effects to tell the story of two youthful spirits who find each other just at the right time.
