I liked it...
8 August 2013 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

...for a low-budget cartoony horror adventure, along the lines of "The Fog". Like that film, 2012's "Ghost Storm" takes place on an island off the Northwest coast, involves a group of ghosts that can manifest as a creeping fog and an old priest. Other than these similarities the story's completely different. The menace here is in the form of a cloud or "storm" of ghosts, made-up mostly of recently slain (typically blown-up) victims.

Although the original "The Fog" (1980) created a nice creepy atmosphere, it always struck me as kind of boring (the '05 remake was more compelling IMHO). Although "Ghost Storm" lacks the big-budget finesse of these films, particularly the original, it makes up for it with more energetic storytelling and over-the-top death scenes. The downside to this is that it comes across as comic booky. Despite this, the actors and filmmakers deliver the goods with a straight face. So it might be cartoony, but it's not campy. Think 1972's "Gargoyles" or 1987's "Bay Coven" and you'd have a good idea of the approach of "Ghost Storm." All three are comic book horror films made for television.

If you enter into "Ghost Storm" with this understanding you'll be able to enjoy it for what it is; if not, you won't. Since the CGI is cartoony and the death scenes are OTT they might elicit laughs from some viewers; so the movie can be enjoyed on this level as well. I was able to do the former and liked it enough when I saw it on TV last November that I decided to pick up the DVD the other day.

What made me like it enough to buy it on DVD? Other than the positives already noted, "Ghost Storm" has a quality cast, certainly better than the original "The Fog." The main protagonist is the sheriff of the island, played by the very likable Carlos Bernard. Then you have the sheriff's ex-wife, played by the striking Crystal Allen. Next you have their daughter, the beautiful Cindy Busby, and her cutie friend, Kacey Rohl. Lastly you have a paranormal investigator played by a guy who looks like a younger Brian Dennehy, Aaron Douglas.

I also really liked the love the protagonists show toward each other, particularly as the story proceeds. They're likable, worthy people and you find yourself rooting for them. There are also hints of forgiveness, acceptance and redemption.

BOTTOM LINE: "Ghost Storm" is nothing that'll blow you away; it's formulaic and hackneyed. But -- still -- it works for what it is. It takes elements of "The Fog" and creates a more snappy and cartoony micro-budgeted movie with a better cast.

Shot in the Vancouver area, the film runs about 90 minutes.

GRADE: B
