Yaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwnnnnn..........
28 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

*yawn* Oh, you're here. And you're reading my review because you're wondering if this movie is worth watching. Well, if you're a horror fan, you've already seen this movie. The movie jumps from one cliché to the next every five minutes. You'll already be predicting what happens in the movie when you're 1/10th of the way through. You won't even need to read the screenplay.

Synopsis: Basically, we have your clichéd horror flick where the yuppie chick has decided to move out to a house in a rural area to "get away from it all". This is one of those small town horrors where the townspeople are aware of the demonic entity. But instead of talking to the protagonist they act cryptic, standoffish, and frightened with the usual "I've said too much already" type of behavior you see in these movies. There's also the obligatory grizzled redneck who knows a lot about the demonic entity. He acts shifty, scared, and distant. And, instead of telling the woman from the get-go about the demonic being, he decides to wait until after she's been haunted to break the news to her. These rural horror demonic ghost type of horror movies always have these townspeople who know about the local demon. But it's never explained why they continue to live in a town possessed by a demonic being.

What's equally perplexing is why these yuppie women continue to stay in these demonic houses after they experience strange things? The main chick hears noises she shouldn't hear; she sees the reflection of people walking behind her and catches ghostly visions staring at her but disappearing when she blinks; things crash and break abruptly; etc. And all she ever says to these occurrences is "Huh. That's funny." and then continues to live in the house as if nothing important is happening? There are also a plethora of other clichés that bombard the horror fan: newspaper clippings to tell the back story; character says, "Don't leave me" and other character says, "stay here. I'll be right back. Everything will be okay." after they hear something strange out in the dark woods; guy goes out to check after hearing strange noise; etc.

Other clichés I didn't like: swaying cam, where the camera isn't shaking like the camera man has seizures but the camera isn't steady either (apparently, tripods are too expensive to buy these days); annoying "BOOM!" jump scares; and the inappropriate music at the wrong time. I'm really tired of this amateurish junk that gets passed for film-making in the indie community.

By the end of the movie, I lost count at the number of clichés I saw. The only thing that made me stay awake was the scene with the chick who came out of the rain. That scene made me raise my eyes and say, "Whoa. That came out of nowhere. That was a pleasant surprise." I gave this movie 1-star because the filmmakers didn't flood the review section with phony shill reviews like you see on so many other indie film reviews on IMDb. So congratulations on that. Everything is was a waste. I've seen everything in this movie. It wasn't suspenseful for those who like atmospheric horror with little to no gore. Nor was it gory enough for the gore/exploitation fans. Without the nudity, this movie would be PG-13 horror.
