Ghost Chase (1988)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
01.11.05

Ghost Chase (1988) This is a weird, uneven movie. Two buddies, presumably in their late teens, are making a low-budget horror movie. Their main actress (Jill Whitlow of NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, TWICE DEAD) doesn't like Warren (Jason Lively) and backs out. Warren, the only surviving member of his family, finds out that his grandfather's will has only left him an old clock at a pawn shop. This upsets him because he knows gramps was loaded with money-but where is it? He and his director friend place the clock in their apartment and that night a ghost comes out of it.The ghost is of Louis, who was the butler to the grandfather-and who was also killed by him. Warren's friend has a dream about the clock, Louis and the grandfather's house-and when he awakens is inspired to make another movie. So he builds a replica of the old house and also an animatronic 'Louis'. Of course, when the Butler's ghost reappears he inhabits this fascimile, which freaks out the two friends. . The actress, who is coerced to coming back to working on the film, also finds out about him.Louis, however, knows where Warren's grandfather had hidden his fortune. Years ago he had Louis brick him up in a room with all of the money. When the butler was done and left, carrying the clock with him, he dies from poison given to him by the evil grandfather, taking the secret with him until now. Louis feels he must show Warren where the money is before he can have his final resting place.However, the old house is located in Hollywood, completely surrounded by a movie studio that specializes in horror movies, so they have to figure out on how to get inside. They do-and locate the hidden room-but not before the grandfather's ghost reappears, reanimating a suit of armor to stop them. The movie studio is also going to explode the old house just as all of them are inside it.GHOST CHASE mostly seems like a kid's movie, except for all of the moderate swearing, and the acting is okay. I thought is odd that both Jason Lively and Jill Whitlow, stars of NIGHT OF THE CREEPS, are both in this. The Louis character is simply weird. He looks like Yoda from STAR WARS, not a man at all. Was he even supposed to be human to begin with? There's also plenty of bad 80's music and a theme song that sounds way too close to the music of GHOSTBUSTERS. I'd recommend seeing the movie only as a curiousity.I believe this is also the first movie directed by Roland Emmerich (STARGATE, THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, INDEPENDENCE DAY), who also wrote the screeplay!
