Reviews:
“This is director Martin Andersen’s debut film and it seems to me that he was aware of what he was doing and tried to avoid delivering a painful film. He is able to avoid making it boring by having a good pace and trying to entertain by adding something seedy to the film.” Cinema Terror

“Scares are of the crash, boom, bang kind […] Ghost Street 100 is a further step back with no historical accuracy, no fun factor and nothing original to separate it from the rest of the seams clogging the subgenre.” The Culture Crypt

“It might not be as creepy as Paranormal Entity, but director Martin Andersen has so much fun with the idea and delivers a visually creative production, very far from the typical found footage. The interesting thing is that the characters get a chance to come to life before they are killed, with some good acting. It is a film that feels alive.” Schmollywood Babylon

“…there are two scenes of heavily implied sexual assault, handled without any subtlety, and that will surely be off-putting to many viewers. Given a mostly talented cast, a very creepy setting, and the director’s clear skill with the found footage format , a far superior film could have been made.” Found film critic

” If you’re worried about highly unlikely scenarios being devised to get the female cast members’ shirts off, rest assured that the bases are covered. If you’re wondering if anyone will make it out alive, fear not—you know the answer to whoever goes in, too.” Trash Film Guru

“This didn’t have to be about Richard Speck, and of course the location and story that this movie purports to be true is made to work within the confines of a low-budget indie film. Not to mention graphic depictions of Speck’s actions. Once upon a time past that problem though, Ghost Street 100 is an effective “Ghost Hunters” gone wrong movie.” Film Mavericks
