Storyline

Charlie, the ghosthunter, and a widower for two years is searching for the contact with his wife that will release his melancholy since her death. He now feels it's his duty to help the transition of lost spirits. His methods are very simple and it is perhaps this informal approach that lead many to underestimate and doubt him. Charlie takes any criticism in his stride, if asked to help he will, otherwise he is content to be left alone. Sarah, the researcher, compelled to find her own purpose in life, investigates the myths surrounding a small village. Invariably driven to uncover the facts, she ploughs through the rumours and superstition surrounding a sinister group that operated in the village around the turn of the century.

A beautifully made short feature
17 January 2001 | by (Manchester) – See all my reviews

This beautifully made, unusual, short film really pushes the boundaries of short filmmaking. Ghosthunter is an atmospheric ghost story that has a genuinely surprising and moving ending. Two lonely figures - Charlie (Frank Finlay) the Ghosthunter and Sarah (Alison Reddihough), the researcher - are brought together by ghostly disturbances in an English village. Together they unravel the mystery behind a haunted abandoned church. The acting is excellent and the production values are as good as a major feature film. The direction by Simon Corris is sensitive and confident and the music, by Barrington Pheloung compliments the increasing sense of menace. Highly recommended!!
