4.0 out of 5 stars Old Time Ghosts 13 Oct 2010
By Mr. Jonathon T. Beckett TOP 1000 REVIEWER
When his twin brother David is killed after falling from his apartment window, Don Wanderley(Craig Wasson) returns to the small town to be with his father Edward(Douglas Fairbanks Jnr) for the funeral. Edward is one of four elderly members of 'The Chowder Society' who tell eachother creepy stories round a roaring coal fire. One story they do not talk about is a true story, a terrible secret that they have kept quiet for fifty years. Their silence is about to be broken however, as Don has his own story to tell. A story of a woman called Alma Mobley(Alice Krige). The members of the Chowder Society know her by a different name. It seems that the secret they have kept quiet so long has come back to haunt them in the present, and threaten all their lives.
This is an entertaining film, an old fashioned ghost story with added gruesome special effects. In fact, these rather silly special effects do not add anything to proceedings, and lend a rather uneven tone to the whole film. It should also be said that 'Ghost Story' fails in one vital area, it doesn't actually scare the audience. However , these are minor quibbles.
The real joy here is the presence of four great old actors clearly enjoying playing off eachother. As well as Fairbanks Jnr, we get John Houseman, Fred Astaire and Melvyn Douglas to entertain us. It's in the scenes where these old timers are present that the film is at its most enjoyable. These four great actors appearing in the autumn of their careers also gives an elagiac feel to the film.
There's also a very nice music score underpinning the unfolding events, and there is a great performance by Alice Krige as the vengeful ghost of the title. Not an unqualified success but a very entertaining film. This release is short on extras but the picture and sound quality are both very good. 4 out of 5
