"Ghost Storm" Movie Review – Not Your Usual Storm

Runtime: 90 minutes
Release Date: November 20, 2012
Rating: NR
Director: Paul Ziller

"Ghost Storm" is the type of film that you start watching and think is yet another release from The Asylum before you realize you're watching a television movie. It's not necessarily a bad movie, but it plays like a TV movie done on a low budget, which is exactly what it is.

A bunch of random kids hit a local cemetery to make out and run around like jackasses, but they decide to do this in the middle of a massive lightning storm. At some point in history, a bunch of people in town killed themselves, and while hanging around the memorial to those citizens, lightning strikes the monument and kills one of the teens. The ghosts of those people then spring to life, running through town and killing people.

Hal is a police officer in town and the father of Daisy, the girl who was dating the boy killed in the cemetery, and he decides that he has to take control of the situation. Since they live on an island in the middle of nowhere, they can't do something like pick up the phone and call for help, so they have to rely on themselves.

"Ghost Storm" is the type of movie that I should love, but it's actually a forgettable film. The only thing that really kept me watching was Carlos Bernard, but I expected a little more from him. If you like movies where a group of random strangers must run around like crazy because of cheap CGI ghosts taking over an island, this is the movie for you. If you don't really care about anything in that sentence, just move on.
