Clumsily written, mostly in English, with performances to match, the only real mystery surrounding Ghosted is how this soporific bore got made.

Lesbian and supernatural themes combined to less-than-stellar effect.

Village Voice

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.
