One of the Worst Haunting Films You're Going to See

I think that my summary line says it all - this movie had potential. Unfortunately it faced the same obstacle many previous SciFi Originals had faced before. Insufficient funding. How are we supposed to believe the story takes place in a big school, when we only see one class of about 15 people? And the external and internal shots don't seem to match? A bigger building with more actors would have made this more believable.

As for the story, there are too many things unexplained. Some are hinted at (like the student-teacher relationship between a female student and her music teacher), but they are not resolved. What was 'the cult' all about? What was the director's main goal (apart from aimlessly killing all the students and staff).

The thing that bugged me the most was Charisma Carpenter. She was in the film for only two minutes and then got killed off. What the heck? Why not have her as a helpful librarian who knows stuff about the occult.

Even with all those faults this was a rather enjoyable film. If you can catch it on TV and you like some mild jump scares, then I can recommend it.

Goes right along with the other crap Sy-Fy has been showing.

NOTE: Contains one or two small things that could be a "SPOILER," if that is even possible with this piece of Sy-Fy junk. I was taught way back to say at least something nice before you say something bad about someone or something, so the good parts are the appearance of M.C. Gainey who was very good as Bo Crowder in the series "Justified" which just happens to be my favorite FX series. He was also in a short-lived series named "Happy Town." To my disappointment, Charisma Carpenter who has appeared in some really good series, such as "Buffy" and "Angel" (Spoiler Now) lasted all of about 20 minutes in "Haunted High." Lauren Pennington and Shawn C. Phillips did a good job with what they had to work with, which wasn't much. I have to say that I really like Danny Trejo and he has appeared in way too many good shows to list, so Danny was this just a paycheck.

A tiny bit about the actual show, as Michael from Louisville, covered it very well, so I won't rehash it all, but good old M.C. Gainey along with his long-dead-lover played by Misty Marshall are given the chance to rise again and raise hell in what appears to a private school, with very few students and some really drab uniforms. Some dumb-a-s history teacher sort of steals a gold coin type of item and drops it and that opens the door so old M.C. and lover aka demon can slip through to this side and raise a little school hell and make really bad puns. This show goes off in several directions at once and not many of them make sense. You don't get to know or even care about the students. I won't give away the end, but if you haven't figured it out in the first half-hour, then you are not a fan of the Sy-Fy Saturday night movie(s). The rest of cast is really not worth mentioning although there were a couple of cute girls and the required a—hole guys. Since this was filmed in New Orleans, they could have made better use of the site than what they did. OK, my vote is only 2 stars out of 10.

A nice change of pace to the recent 'nature run amok' SyFy movies

The demonic ghost of a long-dead school headmaster, along with his equally dead, but considerably more attractive, wife haunt a high school after a teacher dares to steal a gold coin owned by the ghost's grandson. Starring Danny Trejo as the janitor seeking his dead love,Justified's MC Gainey as the pun-afflicted demon, and the prolific Shawn C. Phillips as the token fat kid.

As to offer a counterpoint to the other reviews, I didn't find this to be a bad SyFy film, much less 'the worst' and actually found it no be a nice change of pace to the recent crop of 'nature run amok' offerings that they've been airing as of late. The acting is all right for a film of its ilk and the film was a bit of fun, although granted, the groan worthy puns by the ghost are pretty bad.
