Max Doyle (Ryan Ochoa) has eyes only for Cammie Cahill (Bella Thorne); the smart, popular red head girl in school. When Max finally scores a date with Cammie on Halloween, Phears, an evil ghost with plans taking over the world, unleashes his ghouls and things go haywire. With the help of his friends - Tara (Madison Pettis) and Nicky (Roshon Fegan) - who have turned into ghosts, he tries to destroy Phears (Charlie Hewson), before he takes over the world. The next morning, Max tells the truth to Cammie about having two ghost-friends. Fortunately Cammie believes him and they make out, revealing that they are now dating.

Common Sense Media criticized the film as being "way too silly to be scary, so it never delivers on its essential promise." DVD Verdict also gave a negative review and questioned its pacing, stating that "After the climax, in which our heroes confront ultimate evil, the movie goes on and on, with a lengthy soccer game and a big dance sequence like the one from Slumdog Millionaire. The whole time, I was wondering, "Why isn't the movie over already?""
Felix Vasquez Jr. was slightly more positive, writing that it was "Overly padded, but makes for a decent fantasy horror adventure."
The film was followed by a sequel, Mostly Ghostly: One Night in Doom House, with an entirely new cast, which was released on DVD and Digital HD on September 6, 2016.
