Ghost in the Graveyard is a low-budget horror movie that didn’t really do much for me. After watching the movie online, I expected to like it for a few reasons. But as soon as it started, I quickly recognized it wasn’t my kind of horror movie at all. It is so full of jump scares and a score that is constantly leading up to these jump scares. I find it exhausting!
The worst part of these movies is the fact that these little horror-tricks always tend to come at the expense of the story. In the case of Ghost in the Graveyard, the story just feels familiar and predictable. To me, Ghost in the Graveyard was a struggle to watch from the very beginning. There is a lot of fast editing with very short shots in this horror movie. Something I can actually appreciate when done really well. I absolutely adore Requiem for a Dream by Darren Astronomy which used it in a brilliant way.
Ghost in the Graveyard does not! Also, the camera angles are constantly switching up in all kinds of crazy ways that’s why i always tell people to free download movie. Even when it’s just a laid back scene of two characters talking to one another about everyday stuff.It feels like someone trying to show you everything they know how to do. They just have no idea how to use it. Instead of focusing on the story, it becomes all about camera work and short shots.
