One day, while working at a small film processing business to help pay for school, Matt, the son of an alcoholic father and a schizophrenic mother, begins to see the image of a mysterious man in photographs taken by different people in small towns all over the country. When he learns that no one else can see the man, he fears he may have inherited his mother's schizophrenia and sets out to reclaim his sanity by unraveling the supernatural mystery, but instead of leading him out of darkness, his quest takes him into a black labyrinth of true evil.

Ghosting: What a shame!
9 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Ghosting within the first quarter of an hour had my attention, I was fascinated and I thought maybe just maybe this independent little mystery title could be something special.

It tells the story of a young man whose mothers mental health has driven her into an asylum and he fears he might be going the same way. He keeps seeing the same mysterious man in various photos but nobody else can!

The premise is great, the investigation and character development is solid and it all looks great enroute to the highly dissapointing finale. Sadly it just doesn't build to a decent payoff, in fact it barely has any kind of payoff at all.

This is yet another movie where a writer had a good idea but simply couldn't deliver an ending worthy of it.

Despite the finale the movie isn't entirely terrible, it's just like reading a Tolkein book where the final page was written by a 3yr old.

The Good:

Great concept

Very well made

The Bad:

The photo "Revelation" is beyond stupid

Finale kills the whole film

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

When looking for a missing friend the first place you should check is a sealed up cardboard box
