Storyline

Do you believe in ghosts? A recent Gallup poll suggests that 1/3rd of Americans swear they exist. A second poll from the UK suggests that there are now more people in the UK who believe in ghosts than in God. But what do they believe in? Documentary filmmaker Tim Schultz sets out on a 4-year journey for answers while exploring his own passion to know if an experience he had as a little boy could have been a ghost. He meets a cast of colorful characters including psychics, tarot reading wizards, paranormal investigators, skeptics, and scientists. His crew has journeyed into numerous haunted locations including the Stanley Hotel, which is famously known for inspiring the classic horror novel 'The Shining' and The Myrtles Plantation, which is said to be the most haunted house in America. The production of this film has been an extraordinary experience. If you accept that it is possible for a spirit to become stuck, for energy to haunt a certain location, no matter the cause of it, then ... Written by Mark McLaughlin

Silly nothing of a movie, once again reviewed by people affiliated with the film to get the rating up.

It's a mish mash that goes no where. Hey, dude: usually the outtakes go at the end of the reel. (yes, he includes silly outtakes in the beginning!)

There must not have been enough to fill the hour-26 because he includes star trek costumers which have no relevance to the topic! The rest of the movie explores a closet that people are afraid to go in and photos with dust on the lens. Woooo.

Oh and some guy who can talk to the dead only he's "blocked" when the camera is turned on! Later, however, the walkie talkie works and there's a full blown conversation! OMG I nearly laughed my ass off.

And the filmmaker is a liar. He claims he sent a film crew to Africa to film a "voodoo" ceremony. It's a clip from another documentary. Plus there is no VooDoo in Africa! It's called Vodun. Voodoo is Haitian.

And then there's the tons of clips from old horror movies. Does any of this seem interesting?

In his search to uncover some frightening things, the director created a frighteningly bad movie.
