Ghost Story
1981
Four New England octogenarians have harbored a terrible secret for half a century, but the lid on their Pandora's box of subterfuge is about to blow. The ghost of a young woman haunts the men, each of whom played a part in her horrific death.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

What a great cast, including then-unknown Alice Krige setting the course of her career with this film. Too bad it only puts them (slowly) through the motions of a fairly standard ghost story, with no surprise about what really happened all those years earlier or what will happen at the movie's end. The title pretty much declares outright that this will be a generic movie, and you get what you sign up for. At least the special effects are good, including a creepy jolt involving an automobile accident. This is a so-so rental for ghost-movie fans at best.
