A haunted house makes no secret of the fact it is not pleased with its new tenants in this independent tale of supernatural horror. Katie and Micah are a twenty-something couple who’ve just moved into a new home in San Diego, California. Katie has an interest in the paranormal and believes that malevolent spirits have been following her since childhood, though Micah is not so easily convinced.
However, after several nights of loud noises and strange happenings, Micah starts to agree with Katie that some sort of ghost may have followed them to the new home. After a paranormal researcher tells the couple he can’t help them, Micah decides to take control of the situation and sets up a battery of video cameras so that if a spirit manifests itself, he can capture its behavior on tape.
Once the surveillance cameras are in place, Katie and Micah bring in a Ouija board in an effort to talk to the spirits, a move that deeply offends the ghosts.
From the reviews I have read and how the trailer made this movie sound, I was expecting it to be a lot better than it really was. I thought this was going to be one of those scary movies that I would love. Though, after watching it, I was very disappointed. The only good part was at the end. Other than that, the movie was boring, in my opinion.
As for the storyline, it made me feel like I was watching a movie like “The Blair Witch Project” or something in that nature. This has to be the most over-rated B-Movie EVER made. Anyone could have made this movie and probably make it a lot better, honestly. There wasn’t any real storyline, which took away the fun out of it. The only good thing was probably the effects they added in, to make this movie seem real.
The acting was okay and they made you feel like it was a real event type movie. I didn’t have any complaints about how anyone acted or if there were any errors, that I could tell.
It’s definitely worth seeing, at least once, but nothing more than that. Just don’t expect it to be as great as a lot of people say. I would have gave the movie 2 stars but the ending was good enough, for the third star. It just takes a lot of patience to get to the good parts, of the movie.
