In the lead up to our WDW holiday I've been rewatching a bunch of my favourite Disney movies as well as getting to a few I haven't seen before.
While browsing around on Presto (a streaming service) I came across a movie I didn't even know existed, Tower of Terror.
This live action, made for TV movie came out in 1997 and was the test film to see how people would react to films based on some of the more popular attractions.
The movie stars Kirsten Dunst and Steve Guttenburg and it was these two names that prompted me to actually give this, before unknown to me, film a go.
The premise of the movie is a little shaky to say the least and it could have definitely used some polishing but overall I thought this was a pretty cute movie and one I know I would have loved had I actually seen it back in '97 when it was released.
Guttenberg's character is a reporter trying to make a living on fake paranormal sensationalist pieces who often enlisted the help of his niece played by Dunst.
Back in 1939 a bunch of people reportedly disappeared on Halloween night from a elevator in the local Hollywood Tower Hotel.
Can you see where this is going? That's right, one thing leads to another and the uncle/niece duo end up investigating what turns out to be a real life ghost story.
Clearly this is nothing mind blowing but it's a cute little story and slightly above average compared to other made for TV specials I've seen in the past.
If you're a fan of 90s kids movies with a 'spooky' edge, there are worse ways to spend an hour and a half.
