Short Film Review: #NotAllGhosts (2020)

September 5, 2020

Written by DanXIII

Daniel XIII; the result of an arcane ritual involving a King Diamond album, a box of Count Chocula, and a copy of Swank magazine, is a screenwriter, actor, artist, and reviewer of fright flicks…Who hates ya baby?

A woman (Amy Ciupek) debates how to eject the toxic dude in her life which isn’t going to be easy considering he’s a rather nasty tempered, abusive, ghost!

Filmed with the new Optical Radiance technology that makes film color look vintage without any post-production color correction (read more about the process right here), #NotAllGhosts looks like a million beastly bucks for sure, with bright, eye-popping color… but that isn’t all the visual splendor this bite-sized trip into our beloved horror biz has to offer!

You know that ghoulish guest I mentioned up yonder? Well the visual representation of said spirit is a psychotronic fever dream involving, but not limited to, bubbles, possessed televisions, skeletons, smoke, and haunted photographs that reveal private details of how our heroine spends her down time.

Speaking of said heroine, Amy Ciupek (who also starred in Distiller, which was directed by this film’s director Andy Schroeder) is pretty damn fantastic as our pseudo-fifties housewife character, and effortlessly carries the production… which is a good thing, because besides a cameo from Connie Roberts as a hilarious librarian, this is a one woman show cats n’ creeps!

Look, #NotAllGhosts is nine minutes of surreal, rainbow-hued, cinematic lunacy… that just so happens to have an important message at it’s core; a wicked watch well worth your time boils n’ ghouls!
