Lenny (Matt 'Goose' Goosherst) wants to get famous more than everything
- even though he's pretty much a guy who seems to have loser written all
over him: He's overweight, he's not the dancer he'd love to be, he does
little YouTube videos that are about to get him exactly nowhere as a
filmmaker, and him living in the middle of nowhere with his father (Joe
Bob Briggs) doesn't help much, now does it?
Well, maybe it does,
because one day 17 year old Heather (Haidlyn Harvey) on Lenny's doorstep,
and she thinks he's very talented and they should do a horror movie
together - and let's face it, Heather is really "adorable" (a
word she uses most frequently describing herself) ... but she's underage,
and she won't let Lenny touch her - she's very strict about this, even if
he never makes a move mind you. Now Heather's a really bossy type of
person, and however determined she might be to make Lenny's horror flick,
she's even more determined to look her absolute best in it. For a time,
this seems to be the perfect combination already - but while Lenny is
content with the way things are (as in he's not even hitting on the
underage star of his film), she really pushes ... and might push too far
Now for most of its running time, you might take The
Ghosts of Johnson Woods as a pretty accurate depiction of no-budget
horror flmmaking ... and it's really doing so entertainingly thanks
probably mostly to the central performances Matt 'Gooe' Goosherst of and
Haidlyn Harvey, who really embody their roles as lifelong nerd and beauty.
But they're totally supported by a script that pulls the gruesome stuff at
all the right moments while never losing sympathy with its main
character, ulitmately coming up with something really entertaining that's
simply not to be missed ...
