Plot: In New England, four old men entertain each other by telling ghost stories. But these men are tormented by their own horrendous real-life tale, involving a crime they committed against a young lady during their youth -- an act they've hidden for the past 50 years. But this secret comes back to haunt them, as the evil spirit of the woman avenges the crime committed against her.

 External Reviews
external linkRancid and poor filming of the Peter Straub best-seller. 1.5/4

external link"Ghost Story" isn't a total wash. Dick Smith did some great make-up effects for the movie (which, alas, are given too little screen time) and the flick offers a pretty good mystery. Worth watching, but nothing to twist and shout about.
