As an episode of the TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE TV series, THE SPIRIT PHOTOGRAPHER manages to summon up a little of the appropriately spooky atmosphere here and there. The story involves a paranormal investigator who purchases a house with a haunted reputation. His goal is to get some photographs of actual ghosts, but of course there's a twist in the tale.
Like most episodes of this show, not a lot actually happens during the running time, at least until the end, which you can put down to a lack of budget and the limited imagination of the scriptwriter. Saying that, this is still better than many other episodes, as it actually features ghosts (in a few effective scenes) and has some creepy bits here and there. It's also a little more original than most, which gives it some charm.
