Suspend your disbelief on an astral beam--the spirits in this long-winded ghostathon are real. Spinster Queenie, who is excessively vulnerable to supernatural dictation, records not only the words and works of deceased author Carey, but later the prattle of disagreeable George, a dead child, who is possessing young Peter, son of Carey's widow. Carey's agent and a psychic researcher solve a batch of mysteries and save Peter. Meanwhile, there's a sinister grandfather clock at work hurtling matter and chiming a murder, along with those cryptic ghosts. But with such lackluster treatment, them dry bones don't really walk.
