Review – Death of a Ghost Hunter

Rare indeed is the movie so thoroughly spoiled by its own coda. Usually such end-of-picture tack-ons merely result in a little extra unnecessary running time. But this time a fairly spooky tale gets over-explained to death. My affection for ghost chasers expired back when I outgrew Scooby Doo, so this picture didn't exactly start out on my good side. But the strange, illogical nature of the haunting slowly won me over. The picture also has a level of writing and direction uncommon for low budget productions. But then dang it all they have to spend the last 20 minutes providing a thoroughly repulsive explanation for the whole thing. See if desperate
