There's virtually nothing here that we haven't seen before; the best of it is the acting of a fine cast which also includes Art Malik and David Schofield.
This film doesn't have much we haven't seen before but it does have strong performances from a cast which lift this above its sometimes predictable material.
Screwed isn't just low rent, it comes with a finale so daft that the writer deserves six months in solitary.
There is an uncomfortable naivety in the film's assumption that violence, when practised by the righteous, can be cathartic or redemptive.
It's no Scum or Shawshank, but on its own modest terms, Ghosted is an engrossing watch that wrings new blood from old clichés.
It's well acted - especially by the underused Craig Parkinson as the resident psycho - but is by turns dull and unpleasant.
Ghosted is not out to set any benchmarks. But despite its more modest ambitions, nobody's going to shove it around.
