A ham radio operator picks up a strange signal while listening to the airwaves. He tracks it down, unaware its a prophetic signal from La casa fantasma, or the Ghosthouse.
The word that springs readily to mind when describing La casa fantasma is perfunctory. Perfunctory direction, perfunctory acting, and perfunctory special effects. All of which abetted by a scripted powered by pure stupid.
Really. This can be such a stupid, stupid flick.
About the best you can say for it is that it’s coherent. Even there there are places where “The Hell…?!” springs readily to mind.
So La casa fantasma is a bad movie. No question, no argument, no doubt. (0.5 points).
Still, there’s something charming about its folly. I kinda love every idiotic moment of it (2 points).
Thus it’s confirmed: I have no taste.
As if by this time there was doubt…
Overall Score: 2.5 total points out of a possible 4
