Suspenseless baby scarer
1 July 2005 | by willywantsSee all my reviews

A two-part story, the first half of the film being about a creepy stalker with the ability to leave her body; the second about a girl who's new apartment has a few haunting secrets in it's closet. While not an entirely terrible film, "Shadow of the Wraith" fails for several vital reasons. While the disturbing cover art on the DVD made me excited about the film, it's really cartoony in tone--there wasn't a single scary or even creepy moment in the whole film.

The first half of the film is goofy, with only a few surprises here and there (Most involving cheap pop-scares).

The second half of the film had absolutely NO logic, and a really, really stupid ending that left me going "Huh?". Oh, and the "evil spirit" is absolutely laughable special effects-wise.

To the film's credit, there are a couple of gruesome bloody moments (a nice impaling and a messy train accident being the highlights), and the acting wasn't as bad as it could have been, considering the dumb material the actors/actresses were working with.

Oh, and what in the name of all things good and holy was with that band, "Doggy Bag"?

4/10.
