Critic Reviews:

Like it or not, fright film fans are only facing the first wave of COVID-themed thrillers. They’re the trend du jour that’s cheap to produce and easy to market. Think of it as indie horror’s heir apparent to "found footage" for the time being. When that subgenre inevitably runs its course, "The Lockdown Hauntings" won’t be seen as the sloppiest, though it will still land in the bottom layer of the heap. But that’s only if "The Lockdown Hauntings" is even remembered at all.


The mask the killer wears looks a tad similar to the Michael Myers mask. This is definitely a scary movie to watch with some popcorn and friends. Jon Campling’s doctor character is helping Detective Parker. Each person has a story, they tell a tale, a haunted tale but it’s a fascinating movie. Howard J. Ford did a great job with this movie. I would say check out The Lockdown Hauntings.


In other words, what we have is very little difference between the sort of amateur ghost story that gets made by wannabes (and this site reviews by the bucketload) where everything is shot in the director’s own home and all the effects are conducted for $1.98. Host did the very same thing with low-tech effects but built up a spooky story; here almost the whole film consists of scenes where girls get kitchenware thrown at them and nothing more. Ford delivers this with minimal to routine atmosphere.
