Ep. 107 - James Horner's 'Casper'
Kid's Corner • Comedy, Fantasy, Kids and Family, Music, 12-Oct-2021
"Casper" is one of those '90s gems that you can't quite forget. Directed by Brad Siberling (who also directed 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events'), 'Casper' was his directorial debut and featured the great James Horner at the helm to compose the score. Horner's composition is touching, fun, and iconic in so many ways - especially in the scene presented here.
All of us here at CineConcerts miss Horner each and every day, but we are so lucky to have such a beautiful repertoire of his music available to listen to. For this Halloween season, watch (or re-watch) 'Casper'. You won't regret it!

It is hard to believe that this film was made nearly 13 years ago, with a message that is so much more poignant in todays age. What is there not to love about this film?
