It's a Guh-Guh-Guh-Guh-Storm!

Oh dear, oh dear. I could tell from the opening shot this wasn't going to be good.. and I was mostly right.

A lightning storm unleashed a collection of ghosts from the cemetery ground. They fry pretty much everyone in town, until they realise they can fight back with the help of a random medallion, a fire extinguisher and electricity... and then everyone left alive at the end (just the three of them) have a good laugh, knowing that everyone else on the island, and more, have been destroyed entirely.

Yes, the plot is stupid. Yes, the characters are a waste of screen time. But what I do like, a lot, about this is the special effects. I don't know if the people who did the CGI have their own studio, but if not, they should form one and get out there and get better places to work for. (Oh, and the editing wasn't bad, even if the acting and direction was.)

There are some notable names here. Carlos Bernard, Steve Bacic and Aaron Douglas, to name all of them. Although it does look like some of the other actors have decent careers, but none I have heard of.

Another movie to skip, but check out the trailer for all you need to see.
