Ghostbusters rehash in a haunted house.
20 September 2019 | by eve_dollukSee all my reviews

The story is a rehash of Ghostbusters using a reality tv show as its theme.

The film has a TV show feel to it which could work if A - There was a strong lead and two supporting actors to carry the humour B - There was some humour.

Instead we have a bland lead who has taken inspiration from Horrible Historys in the style but gets it all wrong alongside the rest of the cast.

The production is solid in that tv/stage production style but others nothing particularly cinematic.

Effects are practical and are not bad.

The concept althouhh nothing new isn't a bad one but its not very well done.

It comes across as amateur slapstick rather than clever comedy. Gags are poorly timed as well as any comedic value from the writing.

With a better lead trio with chemistry some decent humour and tighter editing it might have fared better.

As is, it just became annoying and a weak generic attempt at comedy horror.

Id give this a miss or have it on in the background while your doing something else

4/10
