Sub-par OMR entry
2 January 2017 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I'm inserting reviews for films I've seen that so far lack one, this is my 2nd entry for a below par entry in the already low-par OMR series, here goes.... Another below par series entry, using the old favorite of the spy ring using a 'haunted' castle as cover. I saw a fairly reasonable copy of this in Nov '07, and I like the idea of crooks using a 'haunted' castle, as a plot devise, but not OMR films, this entry however scores lower than usual from me for an OMR film, possibly the 'ghosts' title raised my expectations too much? as with my previous OMR review, it would be good to get a review from someone who liked it. This line is here because IMDb insist on a little more verbiage, though I notice there are some very brief 'reviews' for some titles.
