A solid effort despite the budget restraints
17 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With an estimated budget of only $3k, Christopher R. Mihm seems to have a recipe for success. HOUSE OF GHOSTS is my first Mihm experience and I must say I am looking forward to viewing his other films.

Yes, the budget shows. The acting is not very good, but not horrible. The story is nothing special. The setting is very simplistic. The special effects are not very special and are quite comical at times (like the dog on the wall). You would think this film is terrible by my comments thus far, yet I could not stop watching. Like the World's Ugliest Dog Contest, it had a certain charm to it.

I enjoyed the film being shot in black and white. While I already mentioned I was not too high on the acting, I did enjoy Justen Overlander. I think it is because he reminds me of Michael C. Hall (DEXTER, SIX FEET UNDER), who is one of my favorite actors. I think if given the opportunity, Mr. Overlander could act in much bigger budget films or in a TV Series. Granted, this is all I have seen him in, but I have a good feeling I will enjoy his acting in his other films as well.

So while HOUSE OF GHOSTS is obviously an extremely low budget film, and it shows, I could not stop watching it. Christopher R. Mihm appears to be a pretty talented man given the budget he had to work with. Writing, directing, producing and editing? That's a lot of work. Given a bigger budget and some help, I think he could become pretty successful in film making. Not that he is not successful now, because anyone who can get a film made is successful in my eyes (let alone getting 8 done in 8 years). So congratulations Mr. Mihm. I look forward to seeing your other films.
