On December 31, 1999, four people entered a house located in the Blacklands of Texas to investigate supposed supernatural activity. They were never seen alive again. Two months later a video tape labeled with only the title "Blackwood Evil" was delivered to WBWE television in Sunrise, Texas. It chronicles the last hours in the lives of the four investigators as unseen demons take them one by one. Written by
Blackwood Evil is about a supposedly haunted house in the Blacklands of Texas, and the four people who decide to try to spend a night inside. It's kind of a cool idea, a camera man, reporter, psychic and a relative of the people who supposedly died in the house enter with video cameras to record their findings.
But the problem with the movie is that the actors are very poor. I know its supposed to make the movie more realistic, but it really detracts from the experience when you're groaning at how badly acted it is. Watch the Blair witch project, then watch this and you'll see what i mean. It's hard to get scared when they do such a poor job of making you feel that this is really happening. Some of the effects are cool, like when they discover Travis' body in a bedroom with a pentagram carved in his chest and legs apparently chopped off by an unknown force. But everything leading up to this pretty much sucks, it takes so long to get going that most will likely give up watching before anything good happens.
