It's delivered with an impressive amount of atmosphere and a screenplay that capably manages to keep you guessing most of the way.

Audience Reviews for Urban Ghost Story


Interesting ghost story set in England. Once you get past all the cockney the story is pretty interesting in how it unfolds from a ghost story to a poltergeist to a young girl's guilt of a friend's death.

Kind of a creepy strange movie, but it was good. And to think, my main reason for first watching it was b/c of Billy Boyd as a Loan Shark.
