A bland horror movie that was lacking scares...
When I stumbled upon "Ghost Note" in the horror section, I must admit that I was immediately lured by the cover art. I hadn't heard about the movie prior to finding it by sheer random chance. I must admit that after having read the synopsis for the movie, then I wasn't all that thrilled about it. But still, I decided to give the movie a chance and picked it up to watch.
Most of the cast was non-familiar faces to me, which was essentially good, because I do enjoy watching new talents on the screen. And not being familiar with the actors and actresses often leaves room for impression, especially when the performers do well with their given roles and characters.
30 minutes into the movie and I still didn't really know whom the characters were. Aside from the lead character, which made for a somewhat flaccid character gallery. And that did reflect somewhat poorly onto the storyline of the movie. It should be noted that as the movie progressed I didn't really come to grow attached to any of the characters in any way, and that mean that the character gallery was one-dimensional and flaccid.
"Ghost Note" seems to follow a very old school recipe for making a horror movie. And one of the good things about the movie is that it throws you right into the action, and doesn't waste well over half an hour in order to establish mood and setting, like so many horror movies tend to do. However, the movie sort of stumbles and loses momentum some time before halfway through, and that takes a toll on the enjoyment of the movie.
Certain aspects of the storyline were good and interesting, but the overall coherency and presentation of the storyline was just not an impressive result. For a horror movie, then "Ghost Note" was lacking things that would actually make it a scary movie. Now, I am not saying that it was a bad movie, just don't expect to be bedazzled by something that will revolutionize the horror genre.
"Ghost Note" turned out to be somewhat of an ordeal to sit through. And I can in all honesty say that I am not going to return to this movie a second time.
