Trivia

Right after Carter outlines the history of the house, and her methods of hunting ghosts, there are 2 creature type whining sound effects during the scene change. These sounds are taken from the game Populous: The Beginning. Specifically, they are the sound effects used to signify the conjuring of the games Angel of Death. See more »

Good B horror movie!
28 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow. I mentioned in an earlier post that as someone who watches so many horror films, it is known that none of them are genuinely scary. Well this one is. There are some cheesy parts, yeah, but the story is original and good. For a B movie, the acting is decent, the filming isn't bad. There are a few scenes in which the filming could be better, but there are plenty of movies that have that same problem, even big budget films. The only thing I have to complain about is the sound editing. One scene is really loud, the next really quiet. Usually this happens in movies with a lot of action, where it gets very loud during action scenes, but this one switches from quiet to loud in conversation scenes, which is really annoying. I literally closed my eyes at some of the ghost scenes. That is what surprised me. The images are decent and will stay with you. I don't know, I guess after watching so many horrible B movies I get really excited when a good one comes along. The story is told in a narrative form throughout most of it. It is documenting a ghost hunter, Carter, who is hired to check out a house that was the site of a family murder in 1982. The remaining family member is trying to prove that the house is haunted so they hire carter. She has to stay for 3 nights, almost sounds like the premise of house on haunted hill or 13 ghosts, but believe me it is anything but. Along with her, a video guy and a reporter (to write the story) are hired to stay with her, along with a member of the local church who wants to make sure that the original family's name isn't tarnished. There is activity in the house as the mystery of what happens unfold throughout the 3 nights ending in the death of the ghost hunter (hence the name) Carter. The film has an eerily true story feeling about it, like Blair Witch meets an American Haunting. It makes you want to look up the case, even though you know it isn't based on real events. There are a few good jumps, but the actual images are well done for the genre and budget. Available in your local video store July 8. WARNING: If you are extremely religious, don't watch this film. It will offend you.
