Storyline

Two lonely figures are bought together by ghostly disturbances in a Sussex guest house. 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. Their respective journeys bring them together as Charlie recognizes something of his own unhappiness in Sarah. The spiritualist and the factualist who together uncover the ... Written by Anonymous

production values great, story awful
8 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie on the DVD that came with the creators' book "How to Make a Great Short Film: The Making of Ghosthunter." After seeing this short film, that title seems very audacious. Yes, the production values were incredible (looking almost as good as any Hollywood movie), but the story was very weak. That's what most filmmakers (independent or otherwise) seem to have forgotten about film... that it is first and foremost a storytelling format. It is not meant to be a display of technical marvel. A great script, even if it had been shot with an old VHS camcorder, would have been better than this
