had potential…. but flopped
From producer James Wan (creator of Saw and Insidious) comes a horrifying tale of the occult. A group of teenage ghost hunters travel to a supposedly haunted house in an attempt to summon spirits from the dead. After performing a seance, something goes drastically wrong and they are violently killed over the course of the night. A police officer and a psychologist are brought in to question the survivor and discover what happened to them during that horrific evening.
Why does every horror movie these days, especially western horror, have to be nothing but loud and jumpy all the way through to make it even remotely scary. And they don't even make you jump cause you can predict when every one is coming. Proper horror should be nothing but constant suspense, chilling atmosphere, disturbing imagery and spine tingling sound effects. No need to show or say exactly whats after you, leave that to imagination. The only place I've seen this done right is in some Japanese psychological horror and the first 3 Silent Hill games. As the creators of those games say, horror should shake the human heart deeply. Terror is fear of the unknown, and terror is scarier to us than horror!! Take note hollywood.
Well it was ok, thought it would be more too it but no,
Managed to sit and watch all the way through didn't even jump, it needed it
Ain't nothing wrong about renting this movie, a decent scary movie in parts, worth the rental fee, have seen a lot worse lately
It never got going, in fact I had to look how far it was as it looked like it was finishing before anything had really happened… and yep, it was finishing. Rubbish! A waste of time.
What could have been a good plot has been turned into something that looks like a bad CSI episode with all the cheese and stupid half-assed banter between mr/ms "want to appear cool" law enforcers who have never broken a plate in their miserable existence, mixed with a found footage rip-off with zero originality. I hated it through and through and it's one of the few movies where I was so tempted to let the movie unwatched halfway through. Downright garbage.
