Movie Info

Based upon an allegedly factual story featured in the paranormal reality series Sightings, this made-for-cable chiller stars Beau Bridges as Derek, a cynical TV producer. Despite his own personal skepticism concerning supernatural activity, Derek agrees to visit a supposedly haunted house in Kansas for the purposes of a television documentary. With his field director Lou (Nia Long) and prominent psychic Allen (Miguel Ferrer) in tow, Derek launches his investigation of the "bad" house. Not unexpectedly, the trio soon learns that the haunting is genuine -- and in so doing, they solve a mystery that has baffled local authorities for 100 years. Heartland Ghost made its Showtime Network debut on October 27, 2002.

Watch if you're bored. If you keep your expectations low, this movie is suddenly better. Not very memorable but has a few good moments.

Why bother? Why do *I* bother watching these straight to video (or SyFy channel) movies? Always an optimist I guess. Scariest thing about this film is if I put myself in Beau Bridges shoes I know my carrier is in the toilet.

In most instances they are able to prove that the haunting is a hoax. When a couple purchases a fixer-upper home to begin a new family, two ghosts within the house quickly ruin the family’s dreams. The family contacts Derek and Lou to prove they indeed have a ghost. Derek and Lou come to the house; however, they are skeptical of the family’s claim.

The storyline for this picture is a bit uneven. The presentation of the ghosts is awkward and not very scary while the depiction of the town history is fascinating and entertaining. The acting is better than average and the cast includes Nia Long, Beau Bridges, and Miguel Ferrer.

The last third of this film is very entertaining. I would say that starting at the cemetery sequence through the end of the film is solid. The depiction of the town’s history was well presented as well. However, the beginning of the film, including a floating stuffed duck and a circle of stuffed bears, was a bit cheesy. Overall, this is a film worth watching if you catch it while flicking through the channels, but this is not worth going out of your way to see.
