Critical reception

I Am a Ghost I AM A GHOST Now on DVD and Digital HD YouTube

In the year end wrap up, SF Weekly said of I Am a Ghost, "Real horror...if every first effort in a genre is this good, we encourage his restlessness." while Tim Sika of the San Francisco Film Critics Circle called it "Brilliant. Like Kubrick, Bergman, Hitchcock and Fincher combined."

In a more mixed review, while Dennis Harvey of Variety called it "Haunting. Cleverly conceived [and] artfully crafted" he makes note that the film is "a bit of a slog at times getting to the point at which the suspense kicks up a few notches."
