Movie Info

Armenian-Russian director Karen Oganesyan crafts this stylish, cat-and-mouse thriller concerning a creatively blocked writer who unwittingly enters into a deadly battle of wills against a cunning assassin. Anton Prachenko (Konstantin Khabensky) is an author who just can't seem to summon inspiration. He senses an opportunity to finally experience something new and unique, however, when he is summoned to hide a dangerous killer named Mikhail (Vladimir Mashkov). But as Anton begins to mine Mikhail's misdeeds for inspiration, he remains hopelessly blind to the fact that the diabolical Mikhail is simultaneously plotting to frame him for murder.

Critic Reviews for The Ghost

All Critics (1)

A sordid psychological thriller, that is supposed to knock the socks off the viewer by comparing a hit man's preparation with a writer exercising the creative process.

Audience Reviews for The Ghost

Anton, a struggling author, is dumbfoundedly taken in by the sneaky killer Mikhail, to give him inspiration, or rather 'experience' in order to construct and make his books seem more, well, real, and solid. But then, it all backfires and Anton is in for some more trouble he could ever ask for. It's basically all cat and mouse from there. For some odd reason, I really enjoyed this movie. I found it nicely interesting and the storyline was pretty cool. This film is surprisingly entertaining and just kind of a cold-ish thrill. I found it fun to watch, as well. Some suspenseful moments pact into this too. Just overall interesting. Nonetheless It's filmed nicely and just a decent film in all.
