  1. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Ghostwatch

    I have a soft spot for ghost stories and news network hoaxes, and Ghostwatch definitely surpassed my expectations. It creates an enticing mythology of its scar-faced spectre Mr. Pipes that got a bit under my skin. Though some of the effects might be cheap, and the material is akin to tired films like Paranormal Activity, it works because its characters and scenarios often feel real enough until the right moment.

  2. Jorge Lucas.'s rating of the film Ghostwatch

  3. GIYGAS's rating of the film Ghostwatch

    Well I'll be, that got pretty dang scary

  4. film_lies101's rating of the film Ghostwatch

    The Grandparent of the found footage subgenre. Unfortunately, not watching when it originally aired robs it of much of its power

  5. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Ghostwatch

    An amusing confidence trick that like many things that subvert expectations (if not viewer trust) undo what can never be revisited (or repaired) convincingly again. It still works but much of the thrill was in the manner in which it was first broadcast and presented to the audience (albeit in a regular drama strand but in a then-familiar BBC studio style) rather than the onscreen mechanics. Once bitten, twice shy?

    i cannot believe this geniunely

  7. Guillermo Padilla's rating of the film Ghostwatch

    A pesar de que ya no tiene el efecto que tuvo cuando se transmitio, me hubiera encantado vivir esa experiencia orson wellsiana, ahora considerada pieza clave del realismo en horror (Actividad Paranormal, Bruja de Blair etc le deben mucho)

  8. Zac Holbrook's rating of the film Ghostwatch

    I don't know what it is, but this actually scares the shit out of me every time.
