Ghost Watcher 2
Director(s): David A. Cross (Ghost Watcher)
Writer(s): David A. Cross (Ghost Watcher)
Starring: Jillian Byrnes

What impresses me most about director/writer David A. Cross is that Lions Gate distributed his first effort, Ghost Watcher, at the end of October 2004. A year later, in the same month of 2005, Ghost Watcher II was released. And not only were both Ghost Watcher films quite good, but he managed to improve upon the first despite still working with a miniscule budget.

Returning from the first Ghost Watcher is the formerly agoraphobic Laura Kove (Byrnes), who barely survived her first ordeal with a ghost in the first entry. In this one she’s helping Tracy Cain, who was responsible for her mother’s death when she crashed her car shortly after getting her license. She was stabbed by a madman right after, but managed to survive. Three months later Tracy is still feelings the mental effects of that night. Not only is she hearing voices, but she’s also getting split-second visions of some sort of terrible accident. Laura gets called in after a ghost seemingly invades Tracy’s home, and from there the characters work towards deconstructing Tracy’s visions.

Like the first Ghost Watcher, Ghost Watcher II still fails to really hit what should be emotional high notes. It’s partially because of the low budget nature of the production, although some blame can be laid on the actresses. I’m hearing praise for Jillian Byrnes all over the place, but I just don’t buy it.

Regardless of that, Ghost Watcher II is still one hell of a movie. It’s actually quite suspenseful, and untangles the web that is Tracy Cain’s life in a way that leaves you teetering until the final scene. I haven’t watched a movie for a second time since Hell’s Gate: 11:11, so that should serve as quite the endorsement for it.

Bring on Ghost Watcher III for October of 2006 David.
DVD: A gag reel and some cast and crew interviews that leads to the greatest extra of them all; The Last Halloween Part 2.

I have no idea if it’s Ghostwatcher II or Ghost Watcher II, but I chose to use the later because it doesn’t look right as a compound word.
