A Passable Ghost Story
19 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sandra Dee works with her sister in a dance studio. One day she comes home and hears tap dancing in the upstairs part of the building. She assumes her sister is rehearsing. When she goes up, she finds the young woman hanging there. This leads to a series of paranoid events where Dee hears the tapping and has flashbacks of the event. Meanwhile, as she becomes more and more irrational, a man comes and makes her an offer for the studio. Trying to confront her demons, she refuses to give in and tells him no. It gets worse and worse, until one day she hears the sound of tapping again. When she goes up she sees the rope hanging there and hears a voice telling her to put an end to it. This is a good ghost story because it allows us a rational explanation but leaves us with some unexplained events. The writing is good and the acting reasonable. Dee isn't terribly convincing but manages to pull it off pretty well.
