This is the ghost story after the ghost story. Directed by H.P. Mendoza (HIFF 2009’s FRUIT FLY), I AM A GHOST takes a look at the other side of the line separating the living and the dead as Emily (Anna Ishida) tries to come to terms with her ex-existence. With the help of Sylvia (Jeannie Barroga), a medium on our side of the great divide, Anna unravels the mystery of her death.
I AM A GHOST recalls recent ghost centric films like The Innkeepers in choosing to build its tension through open spaces and silences as opposed to the barrage of jarring musical stabs and quick edits that populates more mainstream fare. This is one haunted house tale where the whispered demands to “Get out,” come from the living.
