What are people saying?

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    Gloriously bonkers homage to the British genre films of the 60s and 70s, improved enormously by the sheer chutzpah of the reveal. Its stage origins are clear, and no doubt the practical effects worked better there than on screen, but ultimately it works like a feature-length episode of "Inside No. 9".

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    The material isn't quite up to the quality of Freeman and Lawther as actors. Slumming it a bit. I don't understand why supernatural beings care whether you believe in them or not. They seem really hostile.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    I have a confession to make: even as a fan of the genre, I've never really cared for horror anthology movies. And yet I keep watching them, I think because so many friends and critics I admire revere the likes of "Creepshow" and "Trilogy of Terror." This isn't the film to change my mind about the format, and in fact the ending is rather maddening, but at least two segments are able to coast on Martin Freeman's charm.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    Excellent brit chiller filled with a depressing and oppressing atmosphere. The actors bring their A-game and creators Dyson and Nyman show that they have the genre acumen to really adhere and subvert the genre trope to great effect. While it may start out deceptively simple it takes many left turns leaving the viewer on the edge until the final horrific gut punch. Plus points for Ilfman's dramatic score! See it!!!

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    Pitched as an anthology horror in the tradition of Ealing's Dead of Night, Ghost Stories eventually expands into something more provocative. While the general nature of the initial cases & the over-reliance on jump-scares seem to promise only modest thrills, it's the third act & its daring dismantling of the fourth wall that opens the film up to a more psychological interpretation & moments of terrifying surrealism.

  • ceknklsn's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    45/100 (Mulholland Drive'ın twistini çalmışlar te allam. Azcık özgün olun be. Zaten film boyu yaşanan hikayeler klişeyken hatta atraksiyonlar bile jump scare'ler ile dolu iken bir de -süprizin- de klişe olması artık sinema açısından umutsuz sorular sorduruyor. Set tasarımı + ilk yarım saat ve filmin sonundaki anlamına tüm puanım. Yoksa bu puanlar bile ütopya olurdu.)

  • Rocco's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    As a rule, I’m disinterested in films that spend the majority of the runtime lying to the viewer, but the bread crumbs are numerous here so at least it’s well done. The three tales just aren’t terribly interesting and are all variations of the same thing. I can see how this would be a far more captivating theatrical experience.

  • Cody Hoskins's rating of the film Ghost Stories

    A frightening and outrageous journey into the mysteries of the unknown that shines with its colorful performances, pounds with its unsettling scares, and questions what best defines the limits of the supernatural through intellect and experience.
