Ghost Town Blu-ray Review
“Ghost Town” wastes a fun concept.
After a runaway bride (Kate) goes missing, Deputy Langley’s search for her leads him to a, you guessed it, literal ghost town (Cruz Del Diablo). The town (which is populated by spirits of the past) is ruled by a feared murderous gunslinger (Devlin) who also happens to have Kate in his possession. Now, it’s up to Langley to not only save the town but save Kate.
Cool cover art aside, 1988’s “Ghost Town” is a corny horror-wesern that never takes full advantage of its premise. While there are some neat visuals courtesy of cinematographer Mac Ahlberg (the talking corpse comes to mind), the film is let down by a bland lead (Franc Luz) and a slow-pace. There are simply far too many scenes involving dust clouds or characters walking around for minutes on end that bogs the story down.
Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? While the colors are noticeably sharper on this transfer, the picture quality is often plagued by wavy images and dirt specs.
Audio Track: DTS-HD MA 2.0. How does it sound? A bit muted.
