The Jim Henson Company, Lifetime,

Mary Steenburgen, Jay Harrington, Genevieve Buechner, Graham Verchere, Reese Alexander, Ludacris

Ron Emmerson (Jay Harrington) and his two children (Genevieve Buechner, Graham Verchere) are off to visit Aunt Cly (Mary Steenburgen) in her home near the forest in Turkey Hollow. Much to the kid’s chagrin, there is no technology there, so their tablets and cell phones are basically useless, the children try to make the best of their visit. But when they hear the legend of the Howling Hoodoo, and how their Uncle believed in this monster, the kids decide to try to find it and prove their Uncle was correct. Unfortunately the children discover more than they bargained for.

This holiday story from Disney who now owns Jim Henson is full of odd looking characters like all Jim Henson stories. It is really a kids show, but it’s one that the whole family can enjoy together. There is action and suspense, a great villain, and some wicked but bumbling henchmen. It’s a great holiday story full of fun with action and suspense. But as in all great stories, especially holiday stories, good and truth triumph after all. This is a new movie for 2015 that is quite out of the ordinary. More of a fairy tale with magic and mystery, this is a lot like some of the great classic stories from bygone days. This is one you can watch with the kids, and so keep an eye out for it on Lifetime who brought it to us. Who would have thought that Jim Henson could bring us such a magical adventure this many years after he was gone. Disney has done a good job of keeping his vision alive. This is one of the must see films of the season.
