Death Of A Ghost Hunter

You can watch full length movies on YouTube Lionsgate has several full feature films on their channel.   These aren't your theater blockbusters, but still worthy of watching.  I watched Death Of A Ghost Hunter (2007) and found it pretty interesting.

Renowned "ghost hunter", Carter Simms is paid to conduct a paranormal investigation of a supposedly haunted house. Along with a camera man, a reporter, and a spiritual advocate, she embarks on a three night journey into terror.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
