Movie Reviews

Amazing film!
Horror-Web Jekyll | The Softer Side of Hell (NC) | 08/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tagline : Some secrets can't stayed buried!

Synopsis : Here is a tale of a young woman, Laura Kove, who struggles after being subjected to some frightening occurances on Halloween night. A year later she she has been closed off from the outside world, having only her freind Nikki to help her out. When things start to get uneasy again, she seeks the help of Elizabeth Dean who happens to run a ghost watcher's website. Together they will uncover the truth, the truth that haunts Laura.

Overview :
*Atmosphere A wonderful setup with the beginning of the film, to give us a feel of what it must be like for Laura to be so paranoid she can't leave her apartment. We are in her shoes yet the reason WHY she is this way isn't shoved down our's a gradual discovery.
*Story Smooth storytelling, writing, and execution. A genuine ghost story with some modern twists.
*Cast/Characters Some truly talented actors in this film. No overdramtic scenes or poor stage direction. Keep your eyes peeled on this cast to appear in more films down the lines. The characters had depth, they were individuals and showed all different aspects of people you may know.
*Pace The movie was over before you knew it and has you craving for more! Good transistions between acts to bring you to the finale where everything falls together nicely.
*F/X Amazing effects team on this film because the there were moments that were just so eerie and even one scene made me cringe so bad my tummy flipped!!
*Cinematography Filmed in and around the Maryland area, you felt like you were right there. Even job well done in the limited space of the apartment that Laura never leaves.

Jekyll's Rating : It was a true pleasure to be able to watch this film and also meet the guys in charge of it. Very talented individuals and I look forward to checking out what they have in store for us next. This one gets a strong 5 star rating from me

"The movie started out pretty good. Its obvious this was extremely low budget (my hand held cam has better video quality then their's) and that they could only afford 3 real actors.. but despite all that it was alright. There were about 2 or 3 scenes that were generally creepy (the camera/knife scene was a good one) but i can't honestly say this movie could become an independent classic. i'd reccomend checking out Ghosts of Edendale if you liked this movie."
Liked it for what it was.

"I like the movie. Yeah, it was a low budget movie with unseasoned actors but the story and the eerie scares, made it work for me. One could see that with a rewrite and larger budget, it could really be a gem. My grade is a solid B movie."
So Close!

"This low budget horror film has that gritty, genuine quality, as opposed to the overly slick approach that is used when too much money is thrown at a film. Ghost Watcher contains elements that might remind you of The Blair Witch Project, Evil Dead, or even the low-budget classic Carnival of Souls, but the film left me less satisfied than any of those three. Much effort went into building suspense and atmosphere, but for me it made promises it couldn't keep, with an ending that was a bit of a dissapointment."
