    Comments about The Spook's Apprentice:

    Before the movie is released, this is an interesting 'sorceror's apprentice tale' about a boy who learns to become the town's exorcist and defender from ghouls. Some imagery is frightening in parts for little ones but it is nevertheless engaging with hard to predict characters. Would be interesting to see how the series turns out.
