Thoughts on Ghost Lab

ThoughtsGhost Lab will give us a horror that put two professionals together to understand why some ghosts appear, while other don’t, leading them down a dangerous rabbit hole, which will see them showing a much darker side for experiment to be needed to make happen. While it might start out like ‘Flatliners’ wanting to know about the other side, it takes a much darker turn that makes the movie more disturbing, without getting to a chance understand what the obsession with going towards these dark places mean to the characters. This will end up feeling too dark for its good, leading to a movie that is disturbing, without being truly shocking.

Final Thoughts Ghost Lab is a disturbing horror about not messing with life and death.
