This 1995 flick from Universal Pictures was the first silver screen appearance of Casper the Friendly Ghost since his heyday in the old Paramount/Famous Studio cartoons of the 40's and 50's. A vindictive woman named Carrigan Crittenden attends the reading of her late father's will and learns he has only left her the old Whipstaff Manor in Friendship, Maine. Learning there may be treasure hidden within the manor, Carrigan and her attorney Paul "Dibs" Plutzker visit the house but discovered it is haunted by a friendly yet lonely ghost, Casper, and worse, his three obnoxious uncles – Stretch, Fatso, and Stinkie – who are also known as the Ghostly Trio. Carrigan hires several professionals including Father Guido Sarducci and Ghostbuster Ray Stantz to remove the ghosts, and later a demolition team to destroy the house altogether, all with no success. While watching television, Casper learns of Dr. James Harvey, a paranormal therapist who helps ghosts complete their unfinished business and move on, and immediately becomes infatuated with his daughter, Kat. He manipulates Carrigan into contacting Dr. Harvey to visit the manor, but maybe Casper is not as bad a ghost as the others...
