Ghost Stories – Movie Review

Official Synopsis:

Arch skeptic Professor Phillip Goodman embarks upon a terror-filled quest when he stumbles across a long-lost file containing details of three cases of inexplicable ‘hauntings’.

Review Summary:

Ghost Stories is an original indie horror gem, full of surprises and unique viewpoints on horror. The editing and unsettling use of sound heightens the tension and keeps things grounded. Each performer goes above expectations for the horror genre, adding emotional depth and weight to the film.

The ending was, however, a bit of a disappointment. To avoid spoilers, I’ll simply say that it’s a trope we’ve seen before many times and it’s a bit of a cop out.

With hidden themes and commentary and repressed guilt and sadness, Ghost Stories sets itself above the norm as a horror movie to watch!
