Ghost Story

1981

John Irvin
Director

Disappointing viewing in 1981, this is a film I've upgraded over the years as there are so few good ghost stories on celluloid. The excellent cast of veteran ghost story tellers are somewhat offset by a weaker youthful cast. Dick Smith's creepy ghostly manifestations don't quite pop out at you when they'd be scariest, but still a classy movie.
