Cliché but enjoyable haunted locale opus
22 January 2013 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

When a group of reality show contestants arrive to participate in a horror reality show at an abandoned prison, a series of gruesome accidents has them believing that the site's resident ghosts might be the ones responsible and not the show's fear-based antics.

While it may start off as being somewhat clichéd and rather familiar, this one here manages to become somewhat watchable through several really good points. As is usually necessary in such situations, the atmosphere and location are just incredible, giving off such a foreboding sense of suspense and creepiness that by doing nothing, it still gives off a rather tense vibe, especially when it starts with the guidelines of the show being filmed. Several of rather freaky and definitely enjoyable, especially since it tends to skip over some when it comes to going wrong so that there's a lot of anticipation as to when it'll go sour, which is a great feeling and keeps it interesting. The last half is where the film gets a little off-track, since it tends to pile on twist after twist in attempt to try something new, but it's still really enjoyable.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.
