A campfire tale come to life
9 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who doesn't love to hear a good ghost story? Around the campfire, on Halloween, or just before bedtime are good occasions for them. There are plenty of good ones, passed down through the generations. There are also many good films involving the supernatural. 'The Haunting,' 'Poltergeist,' 'Insidious,' just to mention a few. There are some that have been mostly forgotten. 'Grave Secrets' is a lost little gem about a malevolent ghost. The secret however is why it's never gotten a wider release.

Pros: Some strong performances. Eerie score. Suspenseful story. Not a bad directorial debut. Moves at a decent pace. A few good chills. Though dated, the effects are still pretty good. Some good, disturbing twists.

Cons: Paul Le Mat's performance is uneven. Problem solved too quickly. Too many endings. We've seen a lot of this before.

Final thoughts: It's a shame this one went straight to video. There are better films about supernatural goings on, but this is still well above average. Rather than make it a big effects show, the filmmakers tried to make something to get under our skin. Well worth seeking out if you're looking for something to watch on a dark night.

My rating: 3.5/5
