Critic Reviews for Ghosthunter

All Critics (6)

Lawrence and producer Rebecca Bennett have done extremely the difficult task of illuminating the effects of childhood trauma while doing their best to maintain their duty of care to their subjects.

Ghosthunter is a very unusual, unexpectedly powerful bio-doc about the life-long aftershocks of abuse and the search for a missing father.

Nov 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A quest for knowledge becomes one of atonement, as the narrative folds in childhood friends and police enquiries that slowly pierce a time King has "walled off".

Sep 22, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Truth, in this case, really does turn out to be stranger than fiction - and more troubling and fascinating to boot.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Ben Lawrence's debut documentary is simply remarkable ...but for the sensitivity with which Lawrence tells it.

The documentary's candid subject, important subject matter and involving story go as far as they need to.
