SHOT ON VIDEO JUNK

"Not absolutely horrible but not much above. Ghost Game at least gets a "C" for a concept that brings its overall rating to two stars rather than just one. A group of friends decides to take a camping trip to an old cabin in the middle of nowhere ala so many 1980's slasher films. Once there they find an old game and decide to play. Through the course of the game they release the spirits of three witches who died while performing some kind of ceremony or spell years earlier. Soon they begin killing the campers and the group realizes they have to keep playing the game to try and save themselves. It's not a bad concept but unfortunately there was nothing behind the production to make it rise above others in the Z budget field.
Films shot on video just plain suck and there is no way around it. It just looks plain amateurish no matter how good the actors may be. Not to say the actors were good...but they were not horrible. They were handcuffed by poor scripting. It's the usual horror movie stereotypical roles. The women in the film are reasonably attractive as cheap films go and several of them do have numerous TV credits in their background so it's not like they were just found on the street. I'll chalk this one up to the director as there was an OK concept but there was no sense of pacing or tension built up. Could have been better with a defter hand directing.
THE GAMES AFOOT

"To GHOST GAME's credit, I didn't cut it off; it entertained me enough to make me stay with it. BUT..what a lame movie. A plot that makes little or if any sense; actors whose talents are minimal; and sloppy direction and editing. Three witches back in the mid-seventies were killed during some kind of ritual, but we're not really sure what, and even though by the end of the film, we "kinda" figure out who killed them, it still doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Then we have the typical group of college students (none who look under the age of 30) who for whatever reason decide to go spend a weekend at this camp where the witches died, and lo and behold, they find some kind of weird game which releases the witches and spells doom for the cast. There aren't a whole lot of scares and the pacing isn't quick enough to generate any suspense, but there are a lot worse movies out there, so fans of this type of occult thriller may find themselves mildly diverted."

"Even a lover of horror films will find it hard to get jiggy with the horrible production values, the mysogyny, poor casting, chauvinism, and directorial idiocy of this movie. The witches, alone, are worth dropping this one in the garbage bin. Strictly for people who think "Elimidate" is a cool show."
GHOST GAME DVD REVIEW 1/5

"This movie actually had potential (in the beginning) for a mediocre straight-to-DVD horror film. However, too much bad acting was present throughout most of the movie and the screenplay was brainless. Only watch this movie if you have nothing else to do. Overall, it's not really bad, there are a number of films far more insufficient than this."
