"Ghostwatch" Reviews/Discussion - 2017 Horror Challenge

_______________________________________


These "October Horror Movie Challenge" threads are for the discussion of the films in the 31 FILM SUBSET list.

The plan is for everyone to watch this film on the October day in the thread title, and to start discussing it the morning of the following day.
You may start discussion early if you want, but the preferred plan is for this to be as much of a group exercise as possible, with all of us viewing it "together" and discussing after.

Of course, you are totally encouraged to participate in these threads even if you haven't watched the movie on the designated day.
Even if you haven't watched it in years, or are not participating in the Horror Challenge, please feel free to chime in.



Spoiler tags aren't always used in here, so if you have yet to see the film BEWARE OF POSSIBLE SPOILERS.

Re: "Ghostwatch" Reviews/Discussion - 2017 Horror Challenge

I especially enjoyed Ghostwatch, I've heard good things about it and am glad to see it delivers well. The twist of a mass seance is brilliant and really pulls in a mass hysteria vibe. There's a good attention to detail with small touches, like a ghostly image reflected in the window that no one ever references just left for viewers to see and wonder. Nicely paced television special feel with charismatic anchors and enough moving pieces to keep things entertaining offering tidbits of the story in a convincing way. They can just throw whatever at the audience through telephone call ins, research data, or house footage.
The ghost voice is eerie.

There were a few unintentionally funny bits - I love how they just shove all the ‘debris evidence’ into a plastic tub. The cameraman just walked around with a suction bulb?

The video quality on Alyxstarr’s link is pretty good, I’m impressed and glad I didn't give in to a degraded YouTube rip in past years.
