Now streaming on:

“Ghosts of War” is a B-movie that's not afraid to  go there —starting with WWII soldiers and their PTSD, leading them into a haunted Chateau, and ending on its most bonkers and heartfelt idea of all. It almost feels like writer/director Eric Bress (of " The Butterfly Effect ") built a story backwards starting from this twist, because even if certain supernatural elements can hold it back, they're not what you'll be thinking about after the film is over. 

One of Bress’ greatest strokes comes with casting—he’s collected five faces you might recognize from younger, more innocent roles, and who are compelling to see here as men who have matured rapidly due to the wartime experiences eating away at them. It’s strong enough that you don’t mind some archetypes, like how Skylar Astin's Eugene is the brains of the operation, as indicated by his glasses, and by how references he makes to philosophical concepts are then experienced right after he mentions them. Then there’s Brenton Thwaites as Chris, the main soldier we follow through this nightmare, whose biggest problem might be that he doesn't have a whole lot of background. All of them are good, especially Kyle Gallner ’s sniper Tappert, whose drawl and weary gaze hints at a full character, all during a long monologue about a gruesome memory. 

War has certainly been hell for them, and it's made these afflicted men in 1944 a bit ruthless. In an opening scene, they even let a cornered Nazi put up his dukes for some boxing before abruptly shooting him in the head, making for a beat that's more sad than triumphant. That cruelty lingers when they arrive at a large Chateau in France they've been assigned to hold, which was previously owned by the Nazis. And if the symbols in the attic are any indication, paired with scratches on the floor, and some occasional ghosts, the Nazis did some evil stuff there when it was under their control.  

Although this is a haunted house movie of sorts, as experienced by American soldiers who bond over their PTSD, "Ghosts of War" is not scary in the slightest with its typical ghostly imagery (white faces, tilted heads, ear-piercing screeches). And when it focuses on the guys trying to figure out the mystery of what forces are haunting the manor, all during some weak jump scares, it nearly writes itself into a corner. 

But the action certainly perks the movie up, especially when our five soldiers scramble to fend off around 50 Nazis. Along with the unsettling dark corners effectively engineered by cinematographer Lorenzo Senatore , the excitement of "Ghosts of War" is less from a ghost popping up, but in seeing these guys cautiously move around this space as it seems to close in on them. From the very beginning, Bress’ film has a strong dynamic of five soldiers that you want to see finish the mission alive, and as "Ghosts of War" starts to twist itself and go to weird places, you stick with them and the story.  

Bress has a bleeding-heart explanation for all of the on-the-nose dialogue, and the cheesy ghosts, and it comes at a third act revelation that is messy like other parts of "Ghosts of War," but effective. Using an idea that Bress clearly cares about more than anything else here, it’s admirable in how it deepens the themes and expands the scope of the story, while grappling with the cruelty of all that has happened. I'm being cautious to spoil it, because it's the script's full ride that truly helps this endpoint resonate. The twist will definitely impact some more than others, but I suspect it’s the emotional sincerity "Ghosts of War" proves to have from the start that’ll be its true hook. 

Now playing in virtual cinemas and available on digital platforms.

Ghosts of War

On 7 January 1972, the South Korean base in Nha-Trang, Vietnam, receives a radio transmission from a missing platoon that has been presumed dead. The high-command assigns the veteran and decorated Lieutenant Choi Tae-in to lead a squad of eight other soldiers to extract the missing soldiers from the Romeo point or R-Point. When they arrive at the location, they engage and defeat a Vietnamese woman with a machine gun. They later find a tombstone saying that one hundred years previously, local Vietnamese were killed by the Chinese who disposed of them in a lake.

Ghosts of War – Movie Review (3/5)

Posted by Karina "ScreamQueen" Adelgaard | Jul 13, 2020 | Read Time 4 min.

Ghosts of War – Movie Review (3/5)

GHOSTS OF WAR is a new horror-thriller from Eric Bress, who also wrote and directed The Butterfly Effect (2004). His new movie starts out pretty damn perfectly but then it completely collapses on itself. In several ways. Read how in our full Ghosts of War review here!

GHOSTS OF WAR is a new horror-thriller that starts out so well that my expectations for it shot up immediately. Unfortunately, it’s a near-total collapse before it ends. I have rarely been so disappointed with how a movie progresses.

In terms of both style, cast and storyline, Ghosts of War has so much potential. There is nothing to really warn you that this movie is about to just up and implode on itself. Even though there is actually a very strange moment early on that  should have been an initial warning.

Continue reading our Ghosts of War review below.

The cast of  Ghosts of War

Before I get into what went wrong with  Ghosts of War , let me start out by giving credit to the cast. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the cast of Ghosts of War . In fact, the five actors starring in this movie deliver some really solid performances.

The five brothers in arms are portrayed by Brenton Thwaites, Theo Rossi, Kyle Gallner, Skylar Astin, and Alan Ritchson.

Brenton Thwaites is in charge as Chris. You may recognize Thwaites from Mike Flanagan’s Oculus  or  Gods of Egypt (2016). Theo Rossi (“Juice” on Sons of Anarchy ) plays Kirk, who is a strong and stable soldier.

Kyle Gallner is the soldier that seems to take it way too far one moment but then calmly helps Jewish refugees the next. He basically has a very strong sense of right and wrong. Kyle Gallner is quickly making a career out of portraying characters that a just a bit too far out there – most recently in The Master Cleanse . And he always does an excellent job.

Skylar Astin is Eugene. The classic brainy guy, who wears glasses and always has a book with him. Prior to watching Skylar Astin in this, I knew him primarily from Pitch Perfect so this felt very different.

Finally, Alan Ritchson plays “Butchie” and yes, he is the  big butch guy, who always fights for his brothers. You should know Alan Ritchson from  Black Mirror ( the “Nosedive” episode ), The Hunger Games, and  Titans .

Billy Zane is also in this movie (also as a producer), but honestly, I haven’t expected anything impressive from him for years. No disrespect meant, despite the fact that I know it sounds that way, he simply delivers the same performance every time. It isn’t a character, I see. Instead, I just see Billy Zane in the movie… and having him speak badly German does not help!

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!

Ghosts of War Review:

Despite being filled with potential for numerous horrific tales, World War II has very rarely been touched upon or utilized in the horror genre, maybe vaguely referenced in multiple but very rarely directly used and though Eric Bress’  Ghosts of War  manages to get a few decent scares out of this time period, it still proves to be a mostly lackluster and unscary effort.

During the bleakest days of WW2, five battled-hardened soldiers are given a cake assignment; to hold down a Chateau in the French countryside formerly used by the Nazi high command. What begins as an unexpected respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter an enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield. Cut off from contact with the outside world, Lieutenant Goodson and his men begin experiencing inexplicable events and are taunted by malevolent unseen forces. Something is occupying the house; an evil that will not let them leave alive.

Bress is not a bad filmmaker by any means, as he and J. Mackye Gruber proved in their directorial debuts  The Butterfly Effect  that they had plenty of style behind the camera and knew how to craft an emotional and twisty script, but in looking at the rest of his filmography, it becomes apparent that he can’t quite sustain without Gruber and  Ghosts of War  is one of the clearest examples. The story may not be the most original affair, but it offers what could have been a nice setup for either a simply fun haunted house ride or the twistier heights that it shoots for, but instead in trying to aim for both it mostly fails in the same manner.

The dialogue is a little rote and full of clichés for both the horror and war genres, with soldiers lamenting the atrocities they’ve committed and horrible things they’ve seen and reflecting on their childhoods growing up and the various spiritual and superstitious beliefs hey may or may not hold. The writing does also initially appear to be full of anachronisms and continuity errors, but as the film progresses these start to resolve themselves in intriguing fashion and offers up a few unique twists to the story that could’ve been great had the surrounding film been better.

As far as the scares go, it’s all pretty par for the course in the modern genre of filmmakers believing that the best way to terrify a viewer is to throw something in front of the camera that wasn’t there a second ago with a very loud musical screech. That’s not to say that some of the imagery on display in front of the lens isn’t disturbing, because the spirits are pretty haunting to look at in a few of their brief appearances, but the more they linger on screen, the less-intimidating they are and the jump scares themselves prove to be uninteresting and more evident of a rush job than taking the time to build suspense.

Despite a cast full of talented performers, they all mostly prove to be uninteresting in their fairly routine characters, becoming a meld of forgettable and cardboard cutouts that make it hard to truly care about them. Brenton Thwaites’ Chris fluctuates back and forth between a wide-eyed younger soldier thoroughly afraid of their current situation and a leader-type trying to help keep his group together, but be it his performance, the writing, or both, it feels like a real imbalance of a central character that proves hard to connect to and even harder to care for.

Though  Ghosts of War  has some interesting ideas on how to blend a unique story with an old-fashioned haunted house thrill ride, its lackluster writing, uninteresting characters, and dull performances add up to a true waste of potential.

Film review: ghosts of war (2020).

Damien Riley 10/04/2020 Film Reviews

ghosts of war korean movie

Five American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of World War II. This unexpected respite quickly descends into madness when they encounter a supernatural enemy more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield.

Review: This film is on Amazon Prime Video currently, at time of writing this. I’m happy to review this film that really made an attempt at being a blockbuster. Brenton Thwaites (“The Giver,” “Gods of Egypt”) is just the younger fame aboard. We even have Billy Zane in the cast! Who can forget him in Titanic and so many other amazing stories like Daredevil. The guy has gotten around! He still looks like one scary dude too I might add. In this oddly told tale of ghosts in WWII however, he’s sort of the voice of reason that explains all the supernatural phenomena going on. Other stars in the film include: Theo Rossi, Kyle Gallner, Skylar Astin, and Alan Ritchson. I enjoyed this film, especially the odd ending but it’s still a B movie by my estimation. Despite the director’s efforts and the “cast of thousands” it makes only a small splash in a genre that’s seen this before. Let me flesh it out for you.

ghosts of war korean movie

Our director is Eric Bress, also known as writer/director of “The Butterfly Effect.” That’s another intense film that is in the category of suspense but not horror. Some of the images and highly intense scenes in it are reminiscent of “Ghosts of War” but it’s more of a drama. The writing is excellent. This is his strength. I admire any writer who earns the privilege to direct his own work. Bress is one of those directors. But maybe he should have done some films in between? You know, to keep his chops up? “Ghosts of War” has mostly failed with IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. At the same time it has scored well with RogerEbert.com and random scatterings of reviews on the web. We have war scenes and a war backdrop. After that though, it’s 100% ghost story.

ghosts of war korean movie

Does it have creepy, scary moments? Not to an extreme degree. Still, much time and expense was put into the soundtrack. The semi-transparent ghosts reminded me of the ones in Guillermo del Toro’s “Devil’s Backbone.” I experienced the “chilling” creepy factor I crave in horror watching the film. A sleepy, foggy atmosphere permeates the film. There is nothing scary here like a jump scare is scary. At the same time, it has that heady feeling that supernatural events are bound to occur, and they do.

Another film that it reminded me of is “Overlord.” That was an amazing film based in WWII. The Nazis has a role similar to those in “Ghosts of War.” It’s a similar walk through that history but there are no frightening scenes that even come close to Overlord in “Ghosts of War.” I think that was intentional. Much has also has been written about the ending. Some are confused by it and some ratchet up the score because they think it’s so good. It is unexpected that’s for sure.

ghosts of war korean movie

“Overlord” starts with a multi-million dollar effect of being in a WWII bomber parachuting down. I’m afraid of heights so this opening sequence freaks me out every time. To a horror fan, it’s fun to be freaked out. I know you agree right? You won’t see vast scenes like that in “ Ghosts of War .”

Cinematography and music make this film much better than its story. I see this film as driven by ambience. The story weaves and the ending really goes a different way. Still, it’s interesting what the director does, I do recommend it for fans of war films, horror, and the actors. Do people still go to see movies because their favorite actors are in them? I do sometimes.

ghosts of war korean movie

In conclusion, this is no B movie. It has a cast of many famous actors including Billy Zane. It is set in war but the actors and the ghosts make it a universally pleasing horror. It’s highest feature is the creepy ambience. The story is good and the ending twist is excellent. While not perfect, I think you will enjoy this film. I recommend it as a 7/10.

The smartest thing Eric Bress did in Ghosts of War was to cast Billy Zane, and the dumbest thing he did was keeping Billy Zane off screen for 90% of the movie.

Typical motley crew … Ghosts of War

Ghosts of War review – uneven second world war horror story

A late plot twist enlivens this unexceptional tale of terror set in a creepy French chateau

A gaggle of American soldiers make their way to a fancy French chateau at the end of the second world war. A typical war movie’s motley crew of contrasting masculinities, the fivesome must confront their own mental fragility and flaws when the grand but ramshackle building appears to be haunted – perhaps by a family murdered by Nazi soldiers, or maybe by another more sinister set of entities. Worse still, when they try to get away they find themselves going in circles, trapped by forces they can’t understand. Maybe they’re all suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, or maybe the blue-grey ghoulish figures spotted at the edge of frames and glimpsed in mirrors are the unquiet victims of an endless war.

Without deploying egregious spoilers, it’s impossible to explain why this seemingly bog-standard horror movie suddenly gets fractionally more interesting 20 minutes before the end. Does that make the preceding 74 minutes of entirely predictable plot manoeuvres and jump scares more interesting? Not especially, but it does slyly pull the rug out from under nitpicky viewers who think they’ve spotted anachronistic references along the way.

Little flourishes like that are on brand for writer-director Eric Bress, who is perhaps best known for his screenplay contributions to the Final Destination film franchise as well as for writing and directing time-travel/multiverse sci-fi movie The Butterfly Effect . This effort is similarly infuriating and entertaining by turns, and features pretty good performances from a handful of up-and-coming young male actors, including Brenton Thwaites and Kyle Gallner, along with lovable old ham Billy Zane putting in a last-act cameo.

    6/10 Showed so much promise. Sleepin_Dragon 6 November 2020 Very much a film of two halves, a very good first half, and a pretty awful second half. Early on, I loved the atmosphere, the implied threat, and the build up, it had a really eerie, uncomfortable feeling, and then.... The Soldiers take out a German platoon, and it all goes to pot.

    GHOSTS OF WAR is a new horror-thriller that starts out so well that my expectations for it shot up immediately. Unfortunately, it's a near-total collapse before it ends. I have rarely been so disappointed with how a movie progresses. In terms of both style, cast and storyline, Ghosts of War has so much potential.

  18. Film Review: Ghosts of War (2020)

    In conclusion, this is no B movie. It has a cast of many famous actors including Billy Zane. It is set in war but the actors and the ghosts make it a universally pleasing horror. It's highest feature is the creepy ambience. The story is good and the ending twist is excellent. While not perfect, I think you will enjoy this film.
