Trivia

During the scene where a British soldier is attacked by several natives, one of the natives' axes had a nail sticking out of it. The stuntman playing the soldier would have been seriously injured as he was hit repeatedly with the axe, but his chainmail armor actually protected him. See more »

Goofs

The soldiers are seen wearing medieval kettle hats (Chapel de Fer), plus chain mail coifs. Both are several hundred years out of date. The correct helmet (if any) would be morions or cabassets. See more »

Quotes

Ambrose Viccars: [about Eleanor's father] The old man certainly has a way about him, doesn't he?
Ananias Dare: Oh, yes. Yes, he does!
Eleanor Dare: He's not that bad.
Ananias Dare: Try being me for a day.

Lame and Boring
25 December 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1587, 117 brave men and women set sail from Britain to establish the first English colony in Americas. They land on Roanoke Island, off the coast of Virginia. They build a settlement and plant crops. After a period, a group of colonists finds the local fortress deserted with the corpse of a suicidal hanged in decomposition and a warning written with blood on the ceiling. Ananias Dare (Adrian Paul) is assigned to be in charge of the colony while their leader will bring supplies. Sooner Ananias learns that the forest is haunted by evil spirits that feed themselves of human soul and that they are chasing his new-born daughter that has a pure soul.

"Wraiths of Roanoke" is a lame and boring film with a terrible story, bad acting and direction, awful art direction and costumes and poor special effects. Further, it is too long and repetitive along 95 minutes running time, giving the sensation that the annoying story will never end. This flick is highly recommended for insomnious viewers that do not want to swallow sleeping pills. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Espíritos da Floresta" ("Spirits of the Forest")
