3.0 out of 5 stars Love it because it is cheesy... hate it because it is trying not to be cheesy, March 28, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Gravedancers (After Dark Horrorfest) (DVD)
I bought this movie because I really enjoyed some of the stills of the neat way the ghosts look. I then started watching it.... All actors are fairly decent except for the guy who plays the Oafish friend.... he is god aweful. It then starts as a typical cursed by ghosts, ghost story. The sound design all around for this is actually excellent. Reminded me a lot in the beginning of the original House on Haunted hill where they use lighting and sound to create a mood.... Was really starting to like it.... then they start using really cheap looking effects. You can do alot with cheap effects using the afformentioned sound and lighting but these just looked horrible.... and not in the Evil Dead (pseudo-comedy awesome sort of way). One effect of a small ghost was so obviously a latex mask it was laughable. If you watch the extras where the director talks about making the ghosts... they only did up to two revisions max of the ghosts and the macettes (sp) were actually much cooler then the final products (They really screwed up the finals with the eyes).

The ending was so horrible and went in a terribly cheesy direction...(slight spoiler alert) including slam dunking skulls with cheesy catch phrases. Watch it for it's cheese factor, but don't let the beginning actual dark horror movie atmosphere lead you to believe it will remain that way.

BTW... has anyone else noticed how much one of the Ghosts rips off Aphex Twin's Come To Daddy Video (done 10 years ago! And much creepier to boot)
