Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Clumsily written, mostly in English, with performances to match, the only real mystery surrounding Ghosted is how this soporific bore got made."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Lesbian and supernatural themes combined to less-than-stellar effect."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Initially intriguing, but tepid romantic drama suffering from an uneven screenplay with stilted dialogue and a distracting, gimmicky ghost story."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Feels like an overwritten fringe festival play, performed outdoors, with a single camera recording it for posterity."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"An elegant but unsatisfying drama of cross-cultural lesbian love triangles."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"Flat visuals, flat script, flat performances: Ghosted is only mildly redeemed by the on-the-ground travelogue footage of Taipei and Hamburg, and I'm being generous."
‑ Vadim Rizov, Village Voice
"A blandly romantic drama with just the whiff of the otherworldly about it."
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
"While longtime Treut admirers may miss the gender politics, explicit sex and lesbian SM content of her best known films, the romantic and lush Ghosted offers First Run a good shot at a wider specialty audience."
‑ Steve Ramos, Boxoffice Magazine
"Monika Treut (Female Misbehavior) has made a fruitful career out of documenting nonfiction gender studies and LGBT anthropology, but her attempt at exploring such issues in a narrative context is clunky to a fault."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"A compelling crime saga with supernatural overtones made all the more worthwhile by some spectacular Taipei locales and its celebration of Chinese culture."
‑ Kam Williams, Sly Fox
"A clumsily supernatural mystery that strangely uses the fallible density of flesh as its most underscored symbol."
‑ Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine
