If you read the blurb for this movie, either here at IMDb or on the back of the dvd, well, that's exactly what you get. What it doesn't tell you is how an apparently all up decent hard-working bloke suddenly becomes somewhat evil straight after death. You'll scratch your head over that one. As a movie premise it is original. Does it work? It didn't for me. There is a vision to this movie. The soundtrack, for example, would have been creepy and perfect, had the story been believable. I question the casting of the two leads as well. John Hannah is usually good in movies and TV, but in this he seems out of his depth, though not as much as Laura Harring. Her whole character, as well as her performance, just seemed wrong to me. Too much perfect makeup for an African farmer's wife, and just too slow off the mark to convince me whenever called to action. The horror elements seemed cobbled together from several other movies, which included the frequent brave camera angles. Maybe in 2007 all this was new enough to pass muster. If so, the movie has aged. There's problems with the storyline as well. Why is a woman babbling to a responsible doctor that her husband is still around and appearing to her still allowed to care alone for an infant? That one is explained by a weird spiritualism, painted as specific to Africa, that everyone believes in. That aspect of the movie is not convincing either, as there's very little side notes or cinematography to go with it, just a few lines from the local grandma. I didn't mind watching the movie as, because of its brave concept, it intrigued me when it didn't work. I enjoyed trying to figure out why, and I enjoyed trying to give it the benefit of the doubt. Ghost Son is a weird movie. If you really enjoy weird movies, and brave concepts for horror, then you may find more to enjoy in this than I did.
