Ghosts Of Goldfield Review


Terrible
The current trend in ghost hunting (and TV shows inspired by same) seems innocuous enough. After all, if a group of part-time paranormal observers can stumble across proof of the spirit world, why not videotape the evidence and settle the claims once and for all. Of course, the actual results are more like adding faded, fuzzy fuel to an already raging inferno. Naturally, such a commercial concept leads filmmakers to try and follow suit. Take the individuals behind the spook show Ghosts of Goldfield. They hope that a tiny "based on true events" tag, and a lot of talking, will add up to something similar to The Shining. Instead, what they get is a lot of supernatural nonsense.

Working on her thesis, which centers on the seven "gateways" to the "other side," Julie (Marnette Patterson) hopes to find one of these proposed passages at the old Goldfield Hotel. Located in a god-awful ghost town in the middle of nowhere, she is bringing along her boyfriend Mike (Richie Chance) and a production crew including cameraman Chad (Kellan Lutz), soundman Dean (Scott Whyte) and his skittish gal pal Keri (Mandy Amano) to help with the investigation. Naturally, they run into an old-timer with a tale to tell -- in this case, a menacing bartender named Jackson Smith (Roddy Piper). He then spins the story of a spirit named Elizabeth who roams the rooms at the old inn, seeking revenge on the man who murdered her. As the crew settles in for the night, they soon realize that the specter is haunting them. And with a doorway to the supernatural settled in the hotel's basement, all unholy hell is about to break loose.
