Urban Ghost Story (2004)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Urban Ghost Story (2004) A young girl named Lizzie is in a horrific car accident after she and a friend try some Ecstasy. Her twelve-year-old friend, Kevin, is killed in the explosion. She narrowly escapes, but not before she dies for a few moments and has a near-death-experience.She tells everyone that he was driving the car.Months later there are strange noises and bad smells in her family's apartment. She also has dreams and hallucinations that she should have died in that accident. Kate, her mother, doesn't know what to do, so she goes to a newspaper reporter who had recently done an article on UFO's. She figures that if anyone would believe her story about ghosts it would be him. But he's extremely skeptical-and goes along with Kate and Lizzie in order to get several stories for his paper. He plans to tell his readers that it's all an elaborate hoax. During the course of his 'investigation' he brings in different psychic investigators and most of them seem to think that something is indeed going on.However, the reporter thinks that Lizzie is just doing all of this herself in order to get attention. She has guilt that she survived and this is the form that it is taking. At one point the mother, Kate, can't take anymore of people invading her home so she has a fit and kicks them all out. She soon confront the reporter and realizes he's just doing this for his own benefit, not in the least interested in helping them. Yet, because he's spent so much time around the family he's developed feelings for Kate and ends up sleeping with her. Now he has a personal stake in this ghost story.While all this is going on the social services are keeping an eye on Lizzie-and threaten her mother that they'll take her away if there's any more drug problems. Her mother insists Lizzie is no longer taking drugs and they don't believe her. Of course, these newspaper stories about ghosts don't help them too much. Towards the end of the movie, when the social services people barge in the apartment to take the kids away from their mother, Lizzie locks herself in the bathroom and climbs out the small window. She climbs on ledge and nearly falls to her death. She manages to hang onto some wire-and the mother of the boy who was killed in the car accident ends up saving her life. Lizzie admits that she was the one driving, not him, and this ends up being the source of her immense guilt.This is one of those movies where you're not sure if something supernatural is actually going on or not-it's up to your interpretation of the events. Nonetheless, URBAN GHOST STORY is still a good psychological drama.
