Synopsis: A ghost or demon disturbs a woman from her childhood to her adulthood, and when she and her boyfriend live together, the boyfriend gets worried and attempts to stop the spirit and starts filming everything they do, hoping to get a glimpse of the ghost on tape.
I want to get this off my chest. This movie did not scare me at all. Not once. I was like “Okay, a scary scene is coming, here comes… here it goes…” never came. However, there was a scene that was a notch below “disturbing” when the girl gets dragged down the hallway.
Too boring at first, and it was never scary. The parts that were supposed to be scary were SO MINOR it was riddiculous. Like the sheets moving or the door closing. The story was NO EXPLAINED AT ALL. I know some people like saying “This movie had no plot” as an exageration, but REALLY: this movie had NO story. But this isnt a movie that should rely on the plot, but on the scares, which it failed at.
I wanted to hit the character of Marty (her boyfriend) he did the STUPIDEST shit i’ve ever seen a movie character ever do. I’ve neevr seen such poor decision making off a movie character in my life. Ever. Sure, it was part of the movie but- really? Would a human being REALLY go up the attic if a ghost is there? Or film the whole thing?
There is one major positive however, this movie had two IMMENSE “LMFAO” moments. When Marty says “I think I should by a Wigi Board” his girlfriend says no, and he still buys it, yes- a fucking WIGI BOARD! xD
And when the ghost expert comes in the house and says “Oh my, jesus christ, this is- i should get out of here as soon as possible…”
The two funny moments made this movie bearable so I say it deserves a solid 35% F-
