review by
Mike Haberfelner

Clyde (Michael Loayza), a young unpublished writer, is madly in love with Basil (Alexis Abrams), and she with him - until she dumps him completely out of the blue. This is more than Clyde can handle, and he snaps to such an extent that he has to see a psychotherapist. And then Basil disappears, and that pushes Clyde even more, so much so that he starts to see her (or rather her ghost, or her illusion) everywhere. And then she turns up dead, burnt to a crisp while camping at an abandoned camp ground. Of course, this is yet worse for Clyde, but at least now he can start to figure out things - and finds our that Basil might have lost it because her parents (Laurel Kornfeld, Richard Andreu) got divorced because her dad had a second family. This sounds like an at least reasonable explanation for all that went down, but why then does Clyde find the EMT (Charles Barrows) who has taken care of Basil's body hanged by his neck near the scene of Basil's death? And why is the local detective (Dean Lewis) suddenly very interested in Clyde?


Desolate Soul & the Lingering Ghost is most certainly a very interesting film, a slow moving thriller that starts out as a ghost story but later turns into a very earthbound murder mystery - with many a weird twist though. Thing is, the story is well-structured and mysteriously enough told to keep one interested, and focusses on characters rather than spectacle to remain engaging throughout. And a directorial effort that focuses on atmosphere of course also helps to make this a pretty good and rather unusual genre entry.
