Sarah Landon & The Paranormal Hour (Sony DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Main Program: D



Meant for a younger audience, Sarah Landon & The Paranormal Hour (2007) is a terrible entry in yet another franchise that wants to be like Nancy Drew, but is miles away from Pamela Sue Martin or anything resembling semi-challenging mystery material for young ladies, even supernatural ones.  We guess The Witching Hour is too potent a description, we guess, and not politically correct enough so they had the nerve to rename it in the title!


That is not the only thing smug about this bore, but at least I have suffered though it so you do not.  If this is going to be a franchise, Rissa Walters and the makers had better do better than this.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is shockingly weak, soft and badly shot, down to the editing, with no form and taking the non-suspense to a lower level.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is a bit better, but you can tell this was not conceived for multi-channel in the least and is weak.  A lame game is the only extra.
