Customer Review

on 16 June 2011
Brilliantly directed by debut filmmaker Craig Viveiros, GHOSTED may feature a lot of cliches from other prison drama / thriller films, but what makes this film stand out from the pack are the truly exceptional acting performances from the main cast.

The ever reliable John Lynch (from Black Death / Sliding Doors) excels as Jack, a model prisoner who is trying to keep his head down and avoid the prison monster Clay (Craig Parkinson in a Rottweiler of a performance). The balance is upset with the arrival of young arsonist Paul (Martin Compston from The Disappearance of Alice Creed) and the story develops as the two older inmates battle for control of the young boy.

Yes, there are the typical cliches (shankings in the yard / shower abuse scenes etc), but Ghosted is extremely well filmed and keeps you engaged all the way through to it's surprise ending. Easily one of the most interesting British debuts of recent years - the director is clearly someone to watch.
