A Haunting At Silver Falls (2013/Inception DVD)
B- Sound: C Extras: D Film: B+
Recently Jordan has been sent to live with her aunt and
uncle after the death of her parents at Silver Falls.
As she adjusts to her new life, new
school she finds out the town has it's own skeletons in the closet, a string of
grisly deaths of girls, and she has been seeing them. As she tries to uncover how the girls died the
towns people try to hide the truth from her, could it be the murder is still
around and a lot closer than she knows in Brett Donowho’s A Haunting At Silver Falls (originally simply called Silver Falls).
Jordan is the troubled popular girl,
after a midnight underage drinking/drug party in the woods she finds a ring
which belonged to a dead girl and she begins to see the dead girls all over
town. While the townspeople think she is
going crazy, the dead girl's ghost seems to want her to help with something, to
bring their murderers to justice, but the townspeople rather think of Jordan as crazy
than they were wrong, specially the town therapist threatening to lock her up
and medicated. The only way to prove her
sanity is to follow these dead girls and find the real killers who is
dangerously close to her.
not bad for a ghost movie and not so much scary when some of the twists become
apparent on some unfinished business, but it is one of the better supernatural
releases I have seen in a while. It has
decent quality costuming, lighting and played haunting music at right times. My only complaint is the ghost girl had
noticeable shadow while walking around town. In the end its about the dead getting their
own justice for the wrongs done to them in life.
HD-shot 1.78 X 1 anamorphic image looks better than expected, while the lossy
Dolby Digital sound is not bad, but could have been better. The only extra is a trailer.
