Bex (Becky) Cook is a successful new writer with a second book deal and a newly purchased home. She quickly discovers the house comes equipped with a mischievous but seemingly benign spirit. As the spirit gets more aggressive, Bex’s new boyfriend, Scott, becomes the target for their ethereal house guest. Bex learns more about the home’s previous owners and dramatic events unfold, leading them down a path of terror that neither expected…or wanted.
The movie was able to adequately present the intense anger of the murdered man. While being tied up in the basement, he raped and tortured this lone resident. Not much blood spatter, but only one scene with the possessed man slit the throat of the woman’s friend. Mostly scary jumpy noises which are scattered through the movie which makes the movie engaging.
The Grave Review
The Writer’s Ghost is not an appropriately titled as such. It was a story of a ghost who was murdered and had been living in the house waiting for an unlucky occupant. The movie was able to put forward the extreme anger and ingest the same reaction from the viewers. The plot itself is a little thin but enough to conjure an uneasy presence. It is not the usual evil possession that viewers are used to watching. The movie took a more different approach to its genre. The acting performance is for the most part really good. The script could have been written better, there are a few unanswered questions in the story. Editing is somewhat not well thought out. Some flaws in the continuity of some scenes. The end seemed to be a little bit rushed and could have been handled differently. But the whole movie is still watchable.
Because of the foregoing reasons, Grave Reviews gives The Writer’s Ghost (2015) two graves out of five graves.
