Barry Bird (Christian Pawlowski) is the epitomy of a fanboy if there ever was one, and as all the more accomplished fanboys do, Barry runs a podcast on his favourite subject (yesteryear's horror movies) out of his mum's bedroom. He's so caught up in horror actually that he doesn't even begin to notice that his soundgirl Raike (Jennifer Verardi) couldn't give a ratfart about horror but works on his show just because she adores him.

Anyways, now Barry figures he has landed the biggest coup of his life, he has hired fading stars (and ex-couple) Victor Brimstone (Anthony D.P. Mann) and Vera Sunset (Sherri Paterson) to reunite on the set - a haunted house - of their last movie together for a podcast celebrating the 25th anniversary of that movie, Barry's all-time favourite, a little and more or less forgotten straight-to-video shocker called The House Were Evil Was Born. And he has also brought in a psychic, Amber (Jenny Costanzo), to perform a seance to spice things up a little. However, things go downhill almost straight away, not only do the former lovers start to bicker straight away, both caught up in their fading careers, Amber also picks up way more negative psychic energy ... and then Raike - who's a little too adamant she doesn't believe in ghosts - starts seeing things that have their roots in something that harks back to her childhood ... and suddenly, a child murder from the 1970's (before The House Were Evil Was Born was even shot) becomes a bit too current for comfort again ...

 

Without too much spectacle, Ghostkeepers is at the same time a subtle satire on today's fanboy culture, hommage to yesteryear's horror (also via Anthony D.P. Mann's self-consciously ham performance) and rather creepy ghost story. And in the best of way's, it's a very old school horror film, as it puts story and characters over effects and bloodbath, proper pacing over spitfire editing to suggest excitment, and decent performers over underwear models. And it does go for originality in its storyline rather than following the same formula yet again.

In all, despite a low budget this is pretty good genre entertainment and should be highly enjoyable even to non genre fans.
