This Is Based On A True Story ?
11 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am particularly attracted to haunted house and ghost movies, even bad ones, but this movie which is supposed to be documenting the true story of Doretta Johnson's experiences in Madison,Indiana has every contrived haunted house plot point from every haunted house movie ever made, and a few new ones. There's the bodies buried on the property (it's not built on a cemetary as some commenters have thought), there's too many special effects, a crazy psychic, a disbelieving husband and a child in danger. Toss on top a mother whose stories are so crazy they have to be delusions and doctors more concerned in her than the truth and you have a movie that isn't really worth watching. One the plus side, Sharon Lawrence really has some good moments and Alex D. Linz shines as a true child actor. The hauntings aren't very scary, though, but the movie does push maybe too hard for the emotional scenes. A lot of it, however, I find just too ridiculous. The plot is just not very realistic or believable. This is what happens when you push a script too fast into production. If you want the real story, check out the re-enactment on "Haunted Lives" or the investigations on "Sightings."
