One of the best docs in a long time
20 July 2016 | by muffystcinnamonSee all my reviews

First off, if "Sizzlegeek" is looking for his "true" Ghostheads movie, he could just get off his computer and go make his own movie about these Ghostheads. Nothing is stopping him/her, so stop wasting time by writing biased reviews and go make the movie if it's that easy. Jeeze.

I want to say that I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed this film! I discovered it by hearing about in on the "Opie and Jimmy" show and I was beyond impressed. It was executed brilliantly and there was everything...like an emotional roller coaster. There were sad parts, happy parts and I laughed a lot and enjoyed it immensely. I now have an appreciation of this group of people and will look for them at a comic con or event and go up and shake their hand. I never realized just how this movie impacted people. I have seen the original movies once or twice, but I never really gave them a second thought. I will now re-watch them with a new appreciation.
