"The Ghostmaker"is a very entertaining supernatural thriller,not very original or extremely well directed, but, with good special effects, refined cinematography, and, delivers quite a few surprises!
All the cast is good, and, the drug dealer(Domiziano Arcangeli) is excellent.
The third act lacks a much deeper character's development,some more fascination, and, the dialog is at times very cliche'.
But, over all, it all comes out as a very well made product!
Infact, there's always something that keeps your interest alert, while, even some highly emotional moments give humanity to most leads and sub plots.
Again,it may not be a very artistic or profound film, as i was hoping, but, it is indeed a very enjoyable,unique movie, with a few, but, very thrilling moments, and, even some explicit ,and, timely social commentary.
I'd say it's definitely worth watching, and, especially, if you like horror and supernatural thrillers!
While cleaning out a home, Kyle comes across a coffin the owner wants to dispose of. Kyle keeps the item and researches it with the help of a friend (Jared Grey) who adds the geek aspect to the film. This is a 15th century coffin with a music box in it. It was designed by the evil Wolfgang Von Tristem. When used, it gives a person an out of body experience, i.e. makes them a ghost.
The film is a little like "Altered States" and a bit like "Flatliners." The beginning of the film holds your attention as they go through a discovery phase. I loved the concept, but as the film progressed I grew less interested. The drug aspect of Kyle's life seemed less believable than the ghost coffin. Still it is a cut above the plethora of direct to DVD videos out there. 3 1/2 stars.
Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex/rape, girl shower nudity (If you were invisible where would you hang out?)
Don't waste your time or money on this thing.
The List of a whole lot of nothings is endless, mediocre actors, lousy story ( it could have been good, they had a decent concept to start out with), special effects - where they exist are okay, I will give them that. Though it still isn't anything to brag about,
Overall this is an absolute loser .
