When rebellious teenager Mallory is left behind at her grandmother’s house while her parents go to Hawaii, she gets reacquainted with Rodney, the boy next door. She also discovers a dark family secret, hidden away in the attic.
In the early 1970s, a series of unsolved murders were rumoured to have been committed by an evil blues musician named Eugene Burns who had sold his soul to the Devil. Mallory’s long-dead grandfather, a preacher, captured Eugene and performed an exorcism, but he was unable to expel the demon. Instead, he locked Eugene away to prevent him from hurting anyone else.
Nearly fifty years later, Mallory accidentally sets Eugene free, and he begins to kill again. Now she must figure out a way to stop him before it’s too late…
“For every decent scene in the film, Troy Hart’s Ghost Note has a handful of stumbles and clumsy moments. To make matters a bit worse, the inconsistency increases as the picture reaches its climax, turning what could have been the film’s pinnacle into a bit of a jumble. However, Ghost Note still has a lot in its favor…” Addicted to Horror Movies
“Ghost Note doesn’t make a great deal of sense but it’s unique in its story. The characters in the film aren’t really relateable or believable so I’m rather rooting for the demon in this one to lay waste to them all. But hey, that’s just me. It’s interesting enough to watch one time and one time only.” Back to the Movies
” …it does give a creative way of bringing about a second movie should it become a series of films. It is a film most Horror fans will enjoy if they are able to overlook some flat acting, attire mistakes, and some little plot holes within the film.” Cryptic Rock
” …this is not a film I’d really recommend to the teen ghost loving Goosebumps crowd because of some of the harsher moments of torture, patricide, suicide, and language. Yet the focus on the sloppy teen drama is going to cause massive eye-rolls to anyone over twenty. A bigger problem here is that the story is just all over the place.” Ain’t It Cool News
“Slow bits aside; Ghost Note is a fun fright flick that offers some things you haven’t seen a thousand times over, and the fact that it offers a unique villain is enough for me to recommend it alone!” Horror Fuel
“While Ghost Note moves a little slowly and wraps up fairly predictably, I was still kept interested due to the likable characters and their interaction with each other. The villain was unique and sinister but could have benefited greatly from increased screen time and backstory. Overall, Ghost Note is still a fun and enjoyable ride…” Pop Horror
