Steven (Ryan Merriman) and Cris (Jamie Tisdale) run a paranormal investigation TV show called Ghostseekers that proudly claims to keep it real and use no effects to spice things up ... and that's why the show's not doing too well in the ratings. So for the season finale, Steven pretty much "steals" a location from their main competition, the Ghost Trackers, the Dalvas House, where a father is said to have killed most of his family. So Steven and Cris take their team - camera guy Raz (Reinaldo Zavarce), sound guy Mason (Myk Watford) and photographer Jen (Najarra Townsend) - to the house, and it looks pretty spooky, and as a bonus they're warned off by Native American shaman Douglas (Gregory Zaragoza), but once they're in the house ... nothing. In fact so little that they decide to use some effects to create jump scares after all, much to Steven's dismay. However, their luck changes when they find a buried box that contains a scroll with a incantation in an unknown language. Of course they read it out loud, and of course all sort of weird shit starts to happen, with Raz disappearing, Mason turning up dead, and Jen trying to kill Steven and Cris - and she pretty much has them cornered when they jump into a passing car ... and it's Fiona (Heather Langenkamp), sole survivor from that massacre all those years back, who knows exactly what's going on, and who collects her shaman foster father Douglas so they can drive the demon our heroes have unleashed back to hell. But this is something more dangerous than it even sounds, and there's no guarantee that any of them will make it out alive ...


A very nice paranormal investigation thriller that might not exactly reinvent the genre as such, but profits from a thought-through build-up and strong characters to keep audiences entertained, and is heavy on atmosphere and suspense throughout rather than leaving things to a few jump scares - but also knows when and how to add a bit of humour to the proceedings. Now add to that a solid cast and a sure handed directorial effort, and you've got yourself a really enjoyable genre movie.
