DEWEY
This makes a fun horror genre film for younger kids. The ending is a bit predictable, but it's all in good fun. The storyline follows two brothers and their dad, who tells them the tale of General Dewey whose ghost lives in the hills around them, as they prepare for their first camp out in the back yard.

The opening shot is a bit misleading since it doesn't really have anything to do with the rest of the film. The storyline is well developed, as are the characters of the two boys and the dad. The camerawork is well executed; the audio has some issues at times, particular with some outdoor shots that have lots of wind noise. The boys are really the key talent here and both actors play them believably well. As we get to the climax of the film, with the wind howling, owls hooting, cut-aways to Civil War

The message of this film is that things are always what they appear to be and "don't trust your dad."

I give this film 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 12. Reviewed by Juror #7

Two brothers decide that they want to camp out in a tent in their backyard one night when their over-active imaginations get the best of them.
