Good attempt at presenting some of the fact-based stories...
1 August 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 7/31/2001 - 5 out of 10(Dir-James Forsher): Good attempt at presenting some of the fact-based stories that surrounded the making of many of hollywood's paranormal movies like the Exorcist, and the Amityville Horror. This documentary presented both sides of the story(skeptics and believers) and kind of let you decide what caused these incidents. In some ways, this was both the films appeal and undoing because we as the viewers weren't really sure which direction it was going. I couldn't tell whether they were trying to merely present the entertainment behind the incidents or making a plea for the paranormal and psychic. If documentaries are to have a lasting impact, I think they must have a clear direction otherwise they are simply dry television-style reporting. This movie at times appeared like the later and other times like the former. A very silly video-style song at the end was the final straw despite John Carradine's well done narrative through this topic I can't truly recommend the movie.
