A spooky tale for the family to enjoy this Halloween, When Good Ghouls Go Bad is the tale of the small town of Walker Falls, which has succumbed to the curse of Curtis Danko. A loner who died mysteriously, Danko threatened the citizens of Walker Falls to never celebrate another Halloween. When 12-year-old Danny Walker comes to town and learns of Curtis Danko
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture pops from the screen with beautiful fall colors like rich oranges and deep reds. Fleshtones are nicely balanced, and blacks are deep and solid.

Minor pixelization is occasionally noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #63 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am an older guy who had not bought any A/V equipment for the last 14 years. I was really out of the loop as to what was happening. Did not even own a DVD player until now. This summer, my wife and I decided to build a small home theatre in our basement. Widescreen Review has been an invaluable research partner. The room was completed in mid September and now Widescreen Review can really show its stuff. The extensive DVD reviews are the final word for us when picking movies to watch. The news and equipment reviews keep us current, as we start down the never-ending path of upgrade-itis. Thanks for a great magazine.
