Haunted High (Ghost Quake) Reviews

    Better than some of other original films and Danny Trejo adds some value to the film.

    Another SyFY Trash Galore. This time, the setting almost works. A Haunted High school overrun by bloodthirsty ghosts kind of reminds me of a gory Scooby Doo episode. Alas, the two main antagonist are not very interesting. I always found that, in order to be truly relatable as tangible horror, the ghosts / spirits / monsters etc. still not to adhere to (quoted by C. Carter) "realms of extreme possibility" instead of a Lovecraftian uber-capability of doing pretty much anything all the time and still fail to prevent their certain demise. The cast is not as bad as in most SyFy entries, mainly due to the fact the young kids in this film do not seem to think of themselves as serious actors in the first place, so you won't experience any talentless nitwits trying to pull of a Shakespearean performance while they are haunted by fat ghost with a giant mustache. All in all, a good ghost movie, quite haunting and not as bad as some of the rest.

    When a movie is so bad that not even Danny Trejo is entertaining in it, I think that says it all.

    Painfully bad with goosebumps level effects which shows a saved by the bell type crowd of teens get bumped off by their evil headmaster's ghost while janitor and all round nice guy, machete tries to save then with the help of his daughter's ghost.

    Over-acted & badly acted piece of crap with cliché characters in it... You don't see any of the gore, and the effects are dodgy to top it off. Charisma Carpenter cameoed for a millisecond.
