Trivia:
Originally shot as a 60 minute episodic, the producers are now adding over 30 minutes of storyline for a theatrical release. With the original content filmed over three years ago, the added 30 minutes will be a "prequel" providing an in-depth look into the lead character and how he obtained his abilities.See more »

Awful Senseless Mess, 26 August 2012
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I have just watched "Ghost Hunters: Point of Contact" and the story is an awful senseless mess. The beginning is so confused that is impossible to be understood or described. Then, the "messenger of the dead" Jake has been in coma for twelve years in a hospital in Los Angeles without any atrophy of his muscles, but out of the blue he awakes seeing the dead and moves to the house of the nurse Elaine.

One year and three months later, his beard and Elaine vanish from the story and now he has apparently teamed up with a group of ghost hunters and he meets the psychic Andrea Riley. They go to an abandoned house, where a man killed his wife and two children many years ago, and the flick ends without conclusion or explanation.

I believe that the (very low) budget has finished before the completion of this film and the producers decided to release it anyway without continuity. I know that "advice when most needed is least heeded", but my advice is to avoid this terrible film. My vote is one (awful).

Title (Brazil): "Mensageiro dos Mortos" ("Messenger of the Dead")
