2.5-It's a decent flick.......

I wasn't expecting so much from this film and base on the cover art and it's plot listed on the back, one's first assumptions would be that this film, is directly in the vein of a film of certain films. But as this turns out, "Ghost Machine" turned out to be fairly decent but my husband thought otherwise.

While you watch this you can tell that it's a small production, with no big sets and a small cast, as it stays primarily in one location throughout. But with this said, the film has some pretty good special effects to create the computer simulations and such, which is where I'm guessing that most of the budget went to - however it works in the film's favor. The acting wasn't spectacular, but the cast does, do its job of creating civilized characters. The top billed cast members; Sean Faris Rachael Taylor and Luke Ford do with their roles the best that they can, especially Faris and a less featured Taylor, who always seems to be stuck with less prominent roles like "Transformers," but still somehow manages to make an impression.

For a film shot with a limited budget and no real big names in its cast, "Ghost Machine" is a surprisingly decent flick. Sure, like all limited-budget films it has its flaws, but it is actually a decent film with a decent plot. If you are into horror films that involve virtual killers and where technology is man's enemy, then you might want to check this one out.

Ghost Machine is a film about a computer tech geek who sets up his virtual reality program server inside an old Irish prison.  The geek and his buddies are fooling around until they accidentally pick up a very mean, nasty and vengeful ghost who wants nothing more than to shed blood and wreck havoc.  Can these guys find a way to stop this virtual nightmare or will it find themselves stuck babysitting this digital monster?  Not bad, but it's not all that great.  I found it to be …
