Preview/ Ghost Town Anthology

This low-key tale of a small Quebecois town haunted by loneliness, departure, death and actual spirits can’t really be classed as a horror film, but it’s a genuinely disquieting addition to the canon of ghost stories all the same.

A young man’s suicide leads those left behind in the sparsely populated Irénée-les-Neiges to experience unnerving visitations that accentuate their sense of social and cultural isolation.

Director Denis Côté’s study of a barely-surviving community becomes even more fascinating and affecting thanks to the subtle supernatural shading.
