Ghostwood is well worth seeing if you normally enjoy a horror/thriller type movie
24 March 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Ghostwood is a good film. A subtle tension is maintained throughout. As the film seemed to be over quite quickly, I felt this was a promising sign.

However, it could be said that the plot was perhaps a bit predictable.

On the other hand the music was excellent and certainly contributed to the underlying threat of evil throughout the film. The acting was also reasonably convincing.

I would not normally watch a horror/thriller so I may not be the best judge but I reckon if you like the type of film that makes you a little jumpy with a bit of a twist you will enjoy this one!
