Did You Know?

In order to maintain the fiction of it being an actual piece of videotape evidence, the film has no opening or closing credits. The only place where cast and crew can be found credited is on the DVD packaging, and on Internet sites such as IMDb.See more »
Continuity: When Thomas shows the hand-scrawled note to Dr. Lauren, he reads it as "Maron." But when Ellen originally wrote it, her hand trailed off the paper, leaving the end of the word scribbled on the glass of the table. Dr. Lauren would have only seen the word "Marc" on the paper.See more »

OK Found Footage Rip, 10 October 2012

Paranormal Entity (2009)

** (out of 4)

The Asylum's "mockbuster" of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY has a brother (Shane Van Dyke) filming his sister (Erin Marie Hogan) and mother (Fia Perera) when strange things start to occur. You know, you have to love the cheapness of The Asylum. For very little cash, very little time and very little talent they manage to make all sorts of dough with this generic little films. This one here is actually much better than the rest of their "found footage" films but at the same time it's very weak when compared to the other movie and its biggest sin is the fact that it's not scary at all. It's pretty funny to watch this movie and see how closely it comes to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. There are several scenes that are nearly the same with the only difference being that here it's not scary. I personally loved the other film but as a film buff I'm curious to see the rip-offs. For the most part I thought it was technically a good movie. The cinematography was nice for this type of movie and I thought there were a few good ideas sprinkled across the picture. I won't spoil exactly what's doing the hauntings but this was a nice item that is sadly wasted in a not-so-good movie. I also thought Erin Marie Hogan was good as the sister and her nude scene towards the end did at least wake me up. The highlight of the film? The speech given by mommy when the son asks her and the sister to go to a motel while he stays at the house with the ghost. Priceless.
