GHOST
Here's a beaut little take on the Ghost genre - a seasoned and experienced young ghost is challenged by the new ghost on the block, but instead of fighting it out they team up to maximise their scares. Not only does this film excel in its cinematography, it includes a ghost "training montage" (ever popular) and a few frightened women (exploitation). I think the make-up involved here and the willingness to explore wider characters/story would do this film well.
At the end of this screening I said "Nice!" a little too loud, involuntarily. Keep an eye on this promising team.

About two ghosts haunting on the same turf. There's a bit of rivalry going on, but eventually they figured out it was more fun haunting people together.
I like it. It was funny, different and original. Could have played with 'scare' tactics a bit more. The make up was really good, the house they used was great, and I love the scene/shots of the shed.

Boom Shadow's contribution, The House on Crooked Hill: The Harry Manson Story was a witty combination of Ghost Story and Biopic. This mockumentary had fantastic entertainment value, and a great depth to the characters.
Overall the story was entertaining and original, and the point of view was intriguing. The conflict between the two ghostly characters was a bit too brief, and I would definitely have liked to see more shots of their interaction with the living characters, but overall the delivery was quite good. The contrast between the characters made for a great rivalry and though rather cliche, the way the conflict was resolved between them was witty.
The integration of the required elements was good, and the use of the Sydney character was downright whacky and had the audience in fits of laughter. The other elements were integrated nicely, and the whole thing was brought together really well.
The House on Crooked Hill was a witty portrayal of an unusual perspective, and the audience was both intrigued and amused with Boom Shadow's delivery, which overall produced a well integrated film, though one that could have used a bit of additional footage here and there.

A very inventive and amusing take on the ghost movie genre! Simple, but effective in grabbing and keeping your attention. Awesome!

I really liked the set for this movie, had that old 70's style house with the gardens which made it quite authentic.
The moves of the ghost were funny and the make up over the top but suited it to a 't'.
Overall a good attempt.

I thought it was funny at times, the house was so wonderful to see, i think the make up was a bit to stage but still we got the right idea from it, well donwe guys just need to sharpen it up next time, looks like you had fun and thats the main thing. good luck
