Ghost Game Review
Every now and then I stumble across a horror movie that looks so bad it’s good. That is exactly what I thought Ghost Game would be when I found it on Netflix Instant Streaming (the studio that made this even has it on youtube in full). I saw the 2.7 rating on IMDB and only read negative things. I thought to myself, “Well, it will probably be a funny bad!”. Oh, I thought wrong. So wrong.
The story of this film is well…That’s a difficult thing to really say because the plot was so thin I don’t even know that well. The best I can come up with is this. A group of college students rent a cabin for a weekend getaway. They find out in order to get to it they have to canoe over there because it’s a few miles down a river. When they get there they find the nice cabin and a guest book. One entry in the guest book was from a frightened young girl saying “DON’T!” and then the next page was torn out. They soon get bored and decide to play a board game they find in a random closet. They open up the game and on top of the board it says “DON’T PLAY THIS GAME!”. They do anyways and now ghosts appear on the island making them do the tasks of the game for some kind of ritual as everyone dies around them. That’s the best I can possibly describe it.
The acting, well it gives “The Room” a run for its money. The effects? What effects! There are ghosts, just have the actors jump around acting like they are getting hurt! The music? Actually, this wasn’t that bad…when it was there in the first 15 minutes. The ending? Well, the credits were definitely a highlight!
Honestly, when it comes to a movie so bad like this, it is IMPOSSIBLE to give a very fair long detailed review. There was no plot, the acting wasn’t there and theres nothing to talk about. I am in disbelief that something like this even exists. If you are very bored and want to watch one of the worst movies you could every possibly see then well, check this out. If you are not a movie-masochist and you haven’t seen this yet. Well, continue on with your day and don’t look back.
I give Ghost Game a 1/10
+Well, the music was okay…I guess
-The movie is a giant con.
