In the annals of the most overlooked ‘80s horror movies, Lady in White tops the list. And that’s a shame because it’s one of the most original, heartfelt and sublimely scary horror movies ever made. Thanks to a couple of bullies, Frankie Scarlatti (Lukas Haas) finds himself trapped in his grade school cloakroom on Halloween night. While struggling to free himself, Frankie meets the ghost of a young girl who was murdered ten years prior. As Frankie begins to investigate the girl’s murder, he uncovers the still unsolved murders of nine other children. Now Frankie must find the killer before he becomes another victim.
