A small group of documentary filmmakers revolving around director Eric (Mark Huberman) and host Bruce (Julian Sands) wants to launch a new ghost watch style show visiting the most haunted places of Europe, and for their pilot they have chosen a hotel in Cyprus that has been abandoned for decades now, ever since the owners poisoned all their guests and then committed suicide. Now the hotel, owned by Frank (Anthony Skordi) and Rosemary (Maria Ioannou), who seem to be constantly around, sure is an impressive and impressively moody building, which soon gets under the skin of the crew, consisting of line producer Anna (Kristina Godunova), camerawoman Jennifer (Flavia Watson), soundgirl Christine (Elva Trill), as well as Eric's estranged wife Sofia (Marianna Rosset), but at first it's really only the usual tension expected on a filmset, like Bruce being a sleazy old man trying to get into the panties of all the female crewmembers, and him and Eric not agreeing on the direction the show is to take, while the shoot does nothing to bridge the gap between Eric and Sofia. But then Anna finds out something about the hotel - but is brutally murdered before she can tell, and her body's removed before anyone notices she's gone even. Christine and Jennifer eventually make an excursion to the basement to investigate some weird noises - a basement Christine's never to leave. And when Eric and Jennifer go looking for her, they unwittingly unleash pandemonium ...

 

An atmosphere-heavy horror thriller of the haunted-hotel variety that of course takes a few cues from The Shining (but truth to be told, hasn't every hotel horror flick since that movie's release?), and also from Dario Argento's Suspiria and Inferno, while some murder setpieces would have done honour to any giallo of old stylistically - but that's not to say that The Ghosts of Monday is nothing but a rehash from any number of shockers of old, as the film has enough substance to stand on its own, an engaging story, fleshed out and interesting characters played by a solid cast, and even its very own anthology - all serving to carry an in the best sense of the word old school shocker that's almost sure to hit the right chord with genre fans.
