Ghost Of Goodnight Lane (2014)

Written and directed by Alin Bijan. Starring Lacey Chabert, Brina Palencia, Christine Quinn, Danielle Harris, Matt Dallas, Richard Tyson and Billy Zane.

Plot: a movie studio office is haunted by a vengeful ghost.

This particular ghost doesn’t apparently send shivers down the spine of most people. It isn’t getting the highest of scores. However, we are fully recommending this movie for the Halloween season. Sure, Richard Tyson doesn’t live very long, but the show must go on, as they say. Plus, Alan (Zane) is funny from the very beginning and has all the best lines. And DJ really enjoys Lacey Chabert and Danielle Harris, so we went in hoping for something halfway decent. We weren’t disappointed.

Alan is the director on set that pushes the project along even after awful things begin to happen and an old woman shows up to tell him that there’s a female ghost roaming the studio that isn’t very happy. Why? Because once this movie project is over, the studio has every intention of tearing the place down. When Alan ignores this warning, the ghost, Carly, goes off the rails. She starts picking people off one by one and even possessing others. Then, of course, they are no longer able to get out of the building and their phones won’t work either. Stuck and scared, they eventually discover a little involving Charles Manson, but I won’t say more than that.

The movie doesn’t have the highest budget, but the cast makes up for that. The characters are likable, the story was respectable, Carly’s ghost could be quite scary at times and some of the kills were very worthy of praise. Overall, we really enjoyed it.

My score: 65. DJ’s score: 69.
