Storyline

After a car accident, Lizzie lies dead on the roadside - slowly she is taken into the light - but is pulled back to earth when she is revived by the doctors. Lizzie feels sure that during the 184 seconds that she lay dead, something latched on to her and came back into her world. The nightmares and visions that follow only crystallize her belief that she should have died in the crash... Then the disturbances start, at first merely tappings and bad smells - but soon the activity escalates. Lizzie seems to be the focus, but according to others, she's just playing games for attention. Only when Kate, her mother, is confronted with inexplicable events does she face the possibility that they may be the victims of a poltergeist infestation. Written by Anonymous

Spectacular beginning and end, we were moved to tears
18 December 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

We saw Urban Ghost Story at the Odeon in London. It took a bit of getting into but then we were hooked, enthralled even,and came out feeling that we'd seen a Hollywood style movie, albeit on a low budget. We recently bought the DVD and really enjoyed the commentary about how the film was made and what scenes were disgarded etc. Altogether extremely interesting. Buy the DVD it,s really enlightening and enjoyable to boot. Janis, my wife dragged me and some friends along to see it and I'm glad she did. Can't wait to see their next movie.
