The Ghost Club is a 2003 independent movie directed by Ralph E. Portillo and starring Britt Robertson, Clayton Griffin, and Lindley Mayer. The movie tells the story of a group of young friends who found a secret club called "The Ghost Club" that they created to prove the existence of ghosts. The group consists of Henry (Griffin), Samantha (Robertson), Michael (Philippe Brenninkmeyer), Luke (Trenton Rogers), and Josh (Travis Lee Eller), who are all in search of proof of the paranormal.

The story takes place in a small rural town where the friends are living their everyday lives. However, things start to become strange when they notice that their town is being haunted by a ghostly presence. Samantha, the main protagonist, is the only one in the group who can see ghosts. She is gifted with the ability to communicate with them and is determined to use her gift to prove to her friends that ghosts exist.

Samantha convinces her friends to start a club where they could conduct experiments and try to capture evidence of paranormal activity. They spend their days exploring different places in their town that are known to be haunted, like the abandoned asylum and the old mansion.

As their investigation continues, they discover that the ghost they are investigating is a malevolent spirit with a sinister purpose. The group finds themselves in grave danger as they try to uncover the mystery behind the ghost's intentions.

The Ghost Club is a coming-of-age story that explores friendship, loyalty, and the supernatural. It highlights the importance of embracing one's own unique gifts and working together to overcome difficult obstacles in life.

Britt Robertson gives a standout performance as Samantha, the heart and soul of the group. She brings a genuine sense of wonder and curiosity to the character, making the audience believe that she truly can communicate with the dead. The rest of the cast also delivers strong performances, particularly Clayton Griffin as Henry, the skeptical member of the group who is determined to find rational explanations for all of the strange occurrences they encounter.

The film's pacing is slow at times, but it works in favor of creating an eerie atmosphere that keeps viewers engaged. The cinematography is also noteworthy, with beautiful shots of the town's landscape and the group's investigations.

The Ghost Club's plot is not entirely original, and some elements of the story feel predictable. Still, the film's themes and characters feel authentic and are relatable to audiences of any age.

Overall, The Ghost Club is an enjoyable and spooky indie film that offers a fresh take on the paranormal genre. Fans of ghost stories and coming-of-age movies will appreciate the film's unique blend of both genres.

The Ghost Club is a 2003 kids & family movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 21 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.4.
