It's Halloween 1997 - the last night of high school for Corey, Jango and their skater gang, The Gromits. Childhood is over and adult life beckons. But for Corey, his past has some unfinished business. When he encounters Jonah, a former childhood friend but now victimized by Jango's cruel streak, Corey takes pity on him and agrees to walk him home for old time's sake. What starts off as a normal walk through empty suburban streets descends into something darker and magical as they tell each other ghost stories, drawing upon their fears of the world around them. As they walk through their memories and ghosts of the past, Corey is surprised to discover how much he still has in common with his abandoned friend. But on the night of the grave's delight, even the most buried truths will find a way of coming to life. Written by Teaser-Trailer.com

Hauntingly Crafted
4 December 2017 | by celticknight-79041See all my reviews

I'd like to follow up on Matthew Jacob De Beer, review from August 24,2017.

FORGET the haters and negative Nancy's, you might read here! I just recently found this movie, on a whim and "popped up" out of the blue. Being a HUGE Halloween/Samhain fan and haunter, I had to see what this was about. Mr. De Beer, calls this film 'soulless" and "boring". I have to respond and say, only, a "soulless" person, could say such a thing! On the contrary this movie, has much more "soul", in more than one way. IF, you pay attention to details, there is much foreshadowing.

I found every aspect of it to be fun, whimsy, haunting, captivating, sadness, tearjerker, friendship and desertion, and a sense of a secretive, unspoken, mutual love, with regrets, caught between two friends and,..two worlds. Almost a miracle of sorts for one to reconcile with the other.

This story feels "real"! Who doesn't know, in your own life, the characteristics and personalities of each of the characters here? You can almost envision, people you know, into these characters. The actors were exceptional and talented. I've watched this over and over, already. It is well scripted and directed. A coming of age story enveloping the past, current and future.

Thank you, to ALL who made this movie possible and sharing a well crafted vision, of such a sincere and emotional scope.
