A mediocre film that can't escape it's budgetary constraints
16 October 2004 | by (Northeast, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of THE LAST BROADCAST and had the distinct pleasure of watching the movie before anyone had really heard of it. The movie was great with the exception of the flawed ending. With that being said, I was expecting so much out of THE GHOSTS OF EDENDALE. It is a film that tries so hard to be good, but fails primarily due to its budgetary constraints. I can't shake the notion of the whole shot on video feel and the lighting is distracting as well. But all that can be dismissed really, if the story and special effects are good. So I kept on watching, hoping for the best. The story focuses on a couple who a buy a house on the west coast to start over. They both want to settle down and write screenplays. The woman leaves for a while to shoot some sort of modeling gig and when she returns, she finds that her boyfriend is now acting strange. He becomes rude and distant to her, while she slowly becomes insane by ghastly apparitions that begin to speckle the house. The shots of said apparitions are actually quite good for a film of such low caliber and the folks behind them should be congratulated. They obviously are smart enough to know that less is indeed more. The ending of the film could've been handled better, as no clear cut resolution can be found. In closing, this film will probably be overshadowed by it's bigger budgeted competitors in the long run. If the film had a stronger story and a better ending, I could look past the other faults and recommend this film to all.
