Kill Katie Malone Only Good For Killing Time
Reviewed by

What would you do if you had the opportunity to buy a ghost on an online auction site? Jim Duncan (Stephen Colletti) just happens to come across such an item and quickly becomes the winning bid thank to financial help from best friends Kyle (Jonathan McDaniel) and Ginger (Masiela Lusha). Neither of the three takes the investment seriously, but Jim is overly excited about the venture and ecstatic when a small box arrives at their dorm door that supposedly houses the ghost of an Irish servant girl named Katie Malone.

Kyle and Ginger make wishes of the ghost Ė wishes that mysteriously come true and this then sets the stage for the ghost story that becomes more increasingly violent as the running time progresses.

Directed by Carlos Ramos Jr. making his debut behind the camera, Kill Katie Malone is nothing more than a Ďmehí of a film that is rated R for violence and language, but hardly rises above anything outside of an average made-for-television spook of the week. Whether hardened veterans of the genre or just casual horror past-timers, there isnít much in Kill Katie Malone to grab your interest. The production values are okay and the acting is fairly consistent with TV veteran Dean Cain showing up to bookend the movie in a supporting role.

Unfortunately the story based on a screenplay by Mark Onspaugh is hardly intelligent or trend setting. Instead, the film goes through the usual and comfortable motions leading to a concluding chapter that you will find neither inspiring nor will you have any recollection of its events if asked to recall the film a few months after screening.

Itís too bad too. Although the idea of purchasing a ghost online is borderline ridiculous, I couldnít help but think that there might be an interesting movie to be made here that incorporates both the supernatural and the internet connections to the world wide web.

But assured, Kill Katie Malone is not it. Itís slow and uninvolving and in the end, all Kill Katie Malone is good for is killing time.
