Ghost Canyon

(Janet Shay, Hayley Flowers, Sandra Stockley, et al / DVD / NR / 2020 / GVN Releasing)

Overview: Angered by all the child abuse in the world, a former child psychologist goes vigilante, targeting child sex offenders who escaped severe sentences.

DVD Verdict: Centered around a female vigilante who has just had enough, come to the end of her tether, with all these child predators (back) out on the streets, this low budget, but expertly shot movie features one heck of a compelling script brought to life by our magnificent lead, the frustrated and angered Jessie (Janet Shay).

Not to give too much away early on, but our "heroine" is a former child psychologist who happens to be a (stalking) vigilante who - even through some uneven, and less than original seaming together of plot points - brings to the fore an acting job that (given its subject matter) should resonate two thumbs up from us all!

With a gritty cinematic look and feel to it, the overall cast acting is good, the background given throwaway lines here and there, but in truth no one is really given too much verbal script to get their teeth into; primarily because there isn't a lot of dialogue thrown around here, I guess.

So, with our moody and pissed off lead taking on all bad comers, one by one, this vigilante may not be keeping herself to the high "get in fast, get out clean" standards of our beloved "Paul Kersey" (look it up, if you must), but she most certainly does add some thrills and subtle amounts of realism to this low-violence, yet tension and suspense-filled movie.
