This movie is an unintentional comedy.  There’s some creepy pics from it floating around the internet, but don’t let them fool you.  This will NOT scare you.  Not the true blue horror fan anyway.  But it will make you laugh and that was enough for us.

We watched this with a friend on one of our traditional horror movie nights and were not disappointed.  Maybe it got a little boost because the other 2 movies we picked were crap. Who knows?  What I do know is that there were boob shots done in the very unsophisticated way we love.  There’s a crazy, drunk, Carlton, Urkel guy who screams intensely at the ghost.  There’s a guy who look likes Seal, who we’re supposed to follow as the psychic, who just may be the greatest actor in the world.  And there’s the male lead (shown above) who has very odd facial expressions.  We especially like what we have dubbed his “I need to shit on a cold day” face.

Sure the ghosts fingerprints look like caviar.  And sure, the ending sucks.  And sure, for some odd reason, the credits song sounds like it’s being sung by Jem and the Holograms. But that stuff is CLASSIC given the right stuff around it.  And this had at least some of the right stuff.

So, DJ gave it a 60, I gave it a 64 and if you’d like to know our friend gave it a 67/100. Totally worth the watch.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
