    When documentary filmmaker, Ben Lawrence investigates a newspaper article about a local security guard and part-time ghost hunter, Jason King - he begins a seven-year journey into a world of haunted homes and broken souls and discovers a story about a man confronting his innermost demons. Soon after they meet, Jason presents Ben with a stack of hospital records from his childhood. The documents chart a series of incidents from Jason’s youth that he cannot recall. Sensing there is more to the story, Ben offers to help Jason in his decades long search for the only person who may hold the key to Jason’s lost childhood – his father.

    One day, Jason is contacted by a childhood friend. Sensing a breakthrough, they meet with this newfound collaborator and discover that others are also searching for his father, including the police. As the police investigation intensifies, it leads to an horrific family secret being exposed — forcing Jason to confront a dark past and its many victims.

    Part true-crime, part family mystery, GHOSTHUNTER is an emotional, peculiar and at times darkly humorous journey of catharsis through haunted lives – a real-life ghost story of one man unearthing his past to reclaim his future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ghost hunter A son's search to discover his child hood, revels a tragic tale of abused children and begins a police search to bring his father to justice. The story while sad is sound but the way it filmed, some may find this style of documentary interesting. I found the construct amateurish and done in truly boring manor. Very hard to watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riveting Documentary Film I had read about this documentary in the news. How incredible that what started off as a simple documentary about a man who does ghost hunting as a hobby ends up being a documentary about hunting for the ‘ghosts’ in this man’s own personal history. The personal nature of this film makes you empathise with Jason as he uncovers the unravelling twists and turns. Job well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Important themes Ghosthunter reminded me why a great documentary can beat any other genre: nobody is more interesting than real people. What a heartbreaking story.
