| Cookie cutter TV movie
The usual TV movie ghost story nonsense. HAUNTING SARAH bears a title almost exactly the same as a similarly-themed '80s ghost story, THE HAUNTING OF SARAH, making me wonder why only housewives named Sarah seem to suffer the effects of a haunting in American-made TV movies.

Anyway, this one has a intriguing set up: the main characters are a pair of identical twins (difficult to differentiate, given the scriptwriter's inability to provide characterisation) who are both married with children. When one of their kids is killed in a tragic car accident, the daughter of the other begins to exhibit symptoms of being controlled and guided by his spirit.

I was mildly involved in this opening scenario, despite the typical deficiencies in a TV movie: poor production values, play-it-safe content, middling performances and a samey feel. However, the early potential is soon wasted in too much of the clichéd 'is she/isn't she' mad storyline, and boring scenes of families arguing. The child acting is pretty poor, it has to be said, and occasionally the film veers into outright ham with some sub-EXORCIST hijinks. Not recommended, then.
