The Blackwell Ghost Review (2017)


The Blackwell Ghost is surprisingly entertaining documentary style horror.

The Story

A filmmaker goes on to make a documentary movie to prove that ghosts exist.  He was able to find a supposedly haunted house and he was able to stay for 3 nights with his wife to document his experience.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

The Blackwell Ghost is low budget film and it is not well known.  I ran into this hidden gem in Amazon Prime by accident.  I didn’t expect much from it.  But I was surprised that it was well made and very entertaining.

The Blackwell Ghost is shot in documentary style.  It is not clear if this is fake-documentary or real because it is not so obvious.  The documentary is made realistic as it can.  If you are expecting to see a ghost or a demon jumping out at you, you’ll be disappointed. Many times, it is more scarier if don’t see the ghost and demons.  But with that said, the movie is still very suspenseful and creepy.  It has lots of elements of Paranormal Activities

The Blackwell Ghost is not a short film, but it is not a typical hour long film.  The running time of the film is way under a hour.  So the pace of the movie is very fast.  The film is well-crafted so the narrative zips along with no distractions.  The haunted house it featured in the film looks like a normal house but it is very creepy, specially the basement.

In the Nutshell

The Blackwell Ghost is surprisingly entertaining movie.  If you have Amazon Prime, do check it out!  [4 out of 5 stars]
