Storyline

'GHOSTED' tells a story of survival inside a British Prison. Jack a model prisoner, has kept his head down and done his time. After his wife confirms that she is leaving him, on the anniversary of their son's death, the only thing that keeps him from going under is the new prisoner, Paul. Jack's cell mate Ahmed, attempts to guide him on a path of salvation, a path that involves saving Paul from the clutches of the wing beast, Clay. Jack struggles between the curiosity of the head prison officer Donner, and the violent determination of clay, eventually saving Paul. As Jack and Paul finally accept each other, it soon becomes clear that Paul is not all he seems and may have a closer connection to Jack than he could ever imagine. Written by Craig Viveiros

A tense, excellently acted British prison drama which delivers.
15 September 2011 | by johnblight320See all my reviews

GHOSTED is one of the best films i've seen this year (2011.) It must be because i've just seen it for the second time in 3 days. It's a low budget, (British) gritty and very realistic depiction of life behind bars with some first class acting by John Lynch (giving probably the best performance of his career as a tragic victim of circumstances prisoner) and Craig Parkinson also excellent as his sleazy and quite chilling at times adversary. The direction is understated and perfect for the performances and the story. For me this rates as one of the best prison drama's for years and i'm already looking forward to watching it a third time. 7 out of 10.
