“Bayou Ghost Story”

A Paranormal Mystery

Amos Lassen

Having grown up in Louisiana, I was quite eager to see this film. Te bayous of the state are a great setting for a ghost story and I remember visiting them and sensing a kind of weird strangeness there.

A paranormal investigator travels to the South to research a series of deaths connected to a supernatural curse haunting an old Louisiana family.

Written and directed by Armand Petri, “Bayou Ghost Story” is about a paranormal investigator who travels to Louisiana to “research a series of deaths connected to a supernatural curse haunting an old Louisiana family”. Petri mixes traditional cinematography with documentary style. Simply because of the nature of the plot and the genre of the film, there is nothing that I can say that would not spoil the viewing experience.

    I was so terrified by the trailer that I’m still traumatized, ghosts have come up to the windows and zombies, out of the bayou in the back yard, and after seven mint juleps I’m still shaking! Beauraguard has gone for the sheriff and some shotgun shells. Father Duplantis is here with his rosary and Bobby Joe and his new beau, Billy Jack, are screaming in the barn. All I can say is it this trailer is the indication of what’s to come, then we all goin’ be screaming all up and down Esplanade Avenue by sunrise! Lawd hep us! Oh mercy!

    This “movie” seems more like a vanity piece made by some rich twenty-somethings who just discovered there’s more to Louisiana than the first level of Hades, better known as New Orleans. The “acting” of everyone involved was just awful! I’d say that they were wooden, but wooden would be a few steps up from the poorly attempted, hokey sock-puppet show that this wound up to be. Did any of the cast try their hands at high school/community college level “drama” or do they all have Aspberger’s or are “on the autism spectrum?” That may explain they’re in appropriate emoting.
    Why is it that every Caucasian character was made out to be dumb, vain, kooky &/or ginormous A-holes? The lamest attempt to make “whitey” out to be vain, dumb as a stump stereotype was the chick who winds up jumping in front of the streetcar, “…you must be Hussain!” By golly, she was going to be Mrs. John Assad III (a “Middle Eastern” -in the movie’s own descriptive words- sort of last name), yet she wouldn’t know how to pronounce Hassan? Those dialogues of hers just reeked of some idiot who bought into the whole indoctrination of white privilege. “I just came from my yoga class.” “…My Johnny could’ve gotten him a job with the firm… I don’t know why he couldn’t get a respectable job as a lawyer or dentist!?!” & “I have a doting fiancée, a beautiful home & I drive a NEW car!” Surely ALL white folk in Louisiana have white collar jobs, have beautiful homes & new cars & go to yoga classes!!! Funny how Eliza was born & raised “in the bayou,” yet doesn’t have a hint of a Creole lilt not Southern drawl…
    This movie sucked! The back story was far too watered down, too many unnecessary characters & apparent propaganda pushing (those kooky, heartless, vain & stupid white people!), pointless scenes (what’s with the shot of the 9th ward Museum???) & the only horror involved was having to watch this dreck!
