Denny (Devin Ordoyne) is 30 years of age and has very little to show
for himself: His career as an artist has led nowhere, his girlfriend
Renee (Sara Tomko) has just left him, and his obsession with a certain
horror host (who has long retired), the titular Ghostman (Daniel McCann),
seems to stand in the way of everything ... especially since his ex has
left him for another horror host, Dracool (Kurt Larson), who is a bully
and an asshole whom Denny doesn't approve of at all. In his desperation,
Denny makes a video posing as the "Son of Ghostman", a seriously
uncool piece of work which a teenager, Zack (Matthew Boehm), finds and
puts on the web without Denny's approval. But when Denny learns how many
hits it got in its first day, he and Zack and Denny's best friend Carlo
(Marlon Correa) join forces and make the "Son of Ghostman" into
a webshow, banking on Denny's uncool-factor. The show becomes a hit, much
to the dismay of Dracool, who has spent years working on his
"cool" image and who doesn't take kindly to the new rival.
Still, things are going great for Denny ... until he falls in love with
Claire (Angela Gulner), Zack's aunt and guardian. And while Claire
responds quite positively to his advances, Zack doesn't approve of this
one bit so he eventually drops out of the "Son of
Ghostman"-series ... but how can Denny run the show without Zack, who
was pretty much the show's mastermind? And what about the cease-and-desist
order from the real Ghostman regarding copyright infringement? Plus what
will Claire think when she finds out what Denny and Zack have worked on
all that time? Has Dracool won after all?
Above all else, Son
of Ghostman is a charming little romantic comedy that tries and
succeeds to avoid the usual genre clichés and tell an original story
instead, based on a strong concept, a host of good characters and
situations, and a brand of humour that's neither flat nor saccharine nor
of the gross-out type. Add to this a subtle directorial effort and a
strong ensemble cast, and you've got yourself a pretty good movie.
