I have really been enjoying these Ghost House Underground films that Raimi and company help get released. So far all of them have been good and this one falls right there with them. The cover for this one was cool when I first picked it up but honestly I would have bought it anyway. This one ended up being pretty good and is one of those average ghost stories that have been coming out lately.
Roslyn just got a new job at a Hospital that is closing down, a file clerk. She takes the job and other than the creepy security guy and the doctor that works upstairs no one is there with her late at night, oh yeah by the way it is a night shift. There has also been a series of murders in the surrounding area by a serial killer called the nighthawk. This brings in a detective who just shows up from time to time and the late night visits from her husband only add to suspension. So as the nights go on Roslyn finds herself more and more afraid of things that go bump in the night.
This was your average creepy flick but like others have said the film doesn't know what it wants to be. At times it feels like a straight serial killer flick and then the ghostly elements just happen. Of course in the end it makes a little more sense but there are things left undone. This is basically a psychological thriller if I had to pick one type of flick. I can see what the writer and director were going for and I can tell that both have the talent to make a really great flick together.
I think the flick was a little to ambitious and the writer and director did not want to cut too much out of the script. For what we get it is a good enough flick with some good acting. Our lead Sara Foster is probably the best here since her character has a lot more to do. Of course we have the always reliable Cary Elwes as the doctor up stairs and Michael Biehn as the detective. Both men do well here but only have so much to work with. Gabriel Mann plays the husband here and ends up getting some good scenes of development for his character, well kinda at one point.
This was far from a classic and had many flaws but like I said it is good enough. If you are a fan of the psychological horror flicks then this might be for you. I found it to be an average horror flick with some good acting and a good storyline that suffered a bit from trying to be too many things. Still this might be for you and would be good for the month of October for obvious reasons.
