Ghost House is not so original horror film and very predictable, but it has lots of spooky moments for you to enjoy.
The story is pretty simple. A young couple goes on an adventurous vacation to Thailand only to find themselves haunted by a malevolent ghost.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
The Ghost House isn’t anything new. We’ve seen this type of horror before many times. An American couple visits Asian country and stumbled into malevolent local ghosts.
The story plays with an idea that in Thailand tradition, they have a house dedicated for ghosts to dwell in so that they won’t disturbed the humans. Of course, the American couple, Jim and Julie, stumbled into the ghost house unknowingly and release the ghosts. Now the malevolent ghost possesses Julie, and Jim has to find a way to save Julie.
This type of story is overly done but The Ghost House is worth watching if you don’t have too much expectation. The movie does have many scary scenes and very good jump scares that will keep you on your toes. Also the special effects of all the ghosts are pretty descent. The ghosts look pretty scary. The Ghost House features a typical Asian ghost that we’ve seen in many Asian horrors such as The Ring, Shutter, and The Grudge. Even though we’ve seen these Asian ghosts many times before, they are always scary.
The story moves bit slow in the beginning but it picks up after second half of the movie. Unfortunately, there is no surprise ending and big surprise twist in the story.
The overall, acting is pretty decent and it is shot in Thailand, so we get to see many beautiful sceneries of Thailand and its culture.
