The Ghosts of Borley Rectory 2022 Movie Review
When I got the chance to sit down and watch “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” I did so immediately. Why? Well, first of all, the movie has Julian Sands on the cast list, and also it being a horror movie that I hadn’t already seen.
However, I only knew about “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” because I had seen it on Julian Sands IMDb list, but aside from that, then I had heard nothing about this movie. So I wasn’t really sure what I was in for here, nor really knowing anything about it, aside from it being a horror movie.
Well, “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” wasn’t really all that great of a movie. And even for a horror movie then its plot and storyline was fairly bland, if not actually downright generic. This was essentially just a run-of-the-mill haunted house movie, and not a particularly great one at that.
There was nothing scary to be seen in “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory”, unless you are a rookie and a newcomer to the horror genre. For a seasoned veteran such as myself then “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory”, as written by Christopher Jolley and Steven M. Smith, was a mere stroll in the park.
Visually then “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” wasn’t particularly thrilling or great. There were a few special effects here and there, but they weren’t on any noteworthy level, and came off merely as being watchable. So don’t sit down to watch this movie with the intentions of seeing something amazing or super scary.
Director Steven M. Smith didn’t really revolutionize the horror genre here with “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory”, nor did he bring anything new or interesting to the haunted house subgenre.
The acting performances in “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” were bland. There wasn’t any particular great performances here, and even Julian Sands seemed to run on auto-pilot, and he wasn’t given all that much screen time anyway.
“The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” was not a horror movie that left me with any great impression, and it is one that will slowly fade into the mists of oblivion and I will never take another gander at it. Yeah, it was just that bland and mundane.
My rating of “The Ghosts of Borley Rectory” lands on a generous three out of ten stars.
