4.0 out of 5 stars Ghostwatch - Finally IT is released, and about time!!!!!!!!, 7 Dec. 2002
This review is from: Ghostwatch [1992] [DVD] (DVD)
Ghostwatch, first broadcast on halloween in 1992, was set up to make the public believe it was a live broadcast from an english council estate, the purpose being to have a live broadcast from a haunted house. A poltergeist was supposedly haunting a single mother and her two daughters inside this council house, so the BBC had sent presenter Sarah Greene in with a film crew to investigate, with a live feedback to a studio with host (and TV veteran) Michael Parkinson.
Things start out plain and ordinary enough, giving you some time to ease into what you think will be an uneventful waste of time, then slowly but surely, things get more strange. The tension is cranked up to such a degree that it does disturb you in a 'watching the exorcist and blair witch project for the first time' kinda way.
The controversy this drama (yes, a drama) caused was unprecedented in british TV history, with the show even being linked to a suicide!The truth is that this piece of genius was way before its time, before it could really be appreciated. The only bad thing about this DVD is the lack of extras, a making of documentary, or retrospective or aftermath coverage would have been a welcome addition.
