Rachel HURD-WOOD seems like a typical 13-year-old. She loves to shop, especially in a big department store in New York, though she simply can't remember the name of it. She enjoys ice skating, canoeing and hanging in with her friends. And Hurd-Wood is attached to her tube of pink lip gloss as if it were an extra finger. But what sets her apart from most girls her age -- besides a flawless peaches-and-cream complexion most women would kill for -- is that she's starring in one of the big Christmas movies, "Peter Pan."

It's not every horror movie that slouches into multiplexes set in the Tennessee wilderness during the Monroe administration. (Monroe, as in James Monroe, U.S. president from 1817 to 1825? "Era of Good Feeling"? The guy with the doctrine?) It turns out that "An American Haunting," in its elemental, B-movie fashion, dares other unusual things as well.

"Peter Pan" is old enough -- 99 years as of Saturday -- that its draw, as both theatrical property and television show, has traditionally been the excitement of seeing someone actually flying. In today's movie world, where even pigs can likely fly and Captain Hook (at least in this version) certainly can, that would not be enough. So the latest "Peter Pan," directed and co-written by P.J. Hogan, has to look elsewhere for its raison d'etre.

Published in 1985, Patrick Suskind's novel "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" was the unaccountably compelling story of a boy born into the smelliest time and place in history (Paris, 1783, naturellement) with a superhuman olfactory sense but no personal scent. The boy grows up to be the most gifted perfumer who ever lived, and a serial murderer. In part a parable about the mysteries of human affection, "Perfume" turned out to be wildly pheromonal itself.

For almost a hundred years, children of all ages have firmly believed in an island called Neverland that's just outside the bedroom window and a million miles away. For almost a hundred years, they have tried to summon enough good thoughts to follow Wendy and John and Michael Darling over the dreamy border to a land where life is filled with adventure. And it has taken almost a hundred years for filmmakers to make a faithful rendition of J.M. Barrie's most famous play.
