I've seen worse
18 October 2004 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I have to admit, the only reason I bought and watched this movie is the sole fact that Gabriel Damon is in it. The movie itself isn't really that great and he comes in like halfway through it. Bayou Ghost takes place in around the 50's or 60's in a small town where strange things start happening. The townspeople blame it on a ghost who is really a runaway kid named Peter. He is living in the swamp and pulled the whole ghost thing so people would stay away from him and his home. It really isn't the most clever film I've ever seen and i would only really recommend it if your a fan of Gabriel Damon, who has quite a few topless scenes, or are in the mood for a really cheesy, boring movie. No surprise it didn't win any academy awards.
