Forget about Googie Withers (it’s the cold that does it) and ‘Within These Walls’, and more so ‘Cell Block H’.
If you want great prison drama then you cannot do better than take a look at ‘Ghosted’.
This is a brand new release available on DVD starring a formidable British talent including Art Malik, John Lynch, Hugh Quarshie, David Schofield, Neil Maskell, Martin Compston and Craig Parkinson.
Check out the definition of ‘ghosted’ and explanations relate to ‘haunt’,or ‘a returning or haunting memory’, both explanations are brought to the fore during the DVD’s one hundred and ten minutes running time.
It’s a hard hitting tough violent tale of twists and turns that takes place with in the walls of a male prison.
Tension has been brilliantly captured through great camera techniques which keep the viewer on the edge of the story enfolds.
John Lynch plays Jack who is about to finish his sentence when through a phone call he finds out that his wife is leaving him on the anniversary of their son’s death.
He only manages to keep sane by taking under his wing a new young inmate Paul played by Martin Compston.
Every good tale has an evil element to it and ‘Ghosted’ is no exception to the rule when Paul becomes influenced by the Pyscho of the cells ‘Baron’ Clay played by Craig Parkinson.
Jack tries to make good and takes on the task of moving him away from his influences, putting his own life on the line.
Sometimes cruel,gritty and violent it is a hard hitting exploration of inner prison life with the atmosphere building to a dramatic and violent scenario, but played to perfection.
The final twist makes this film one of the best ‘edge of seat’powerfull dramas released for a while.
First shown recently at the Edinburgh Festival this DVD is now available to view in the comfort of your own home.
