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!!
