Absolutely nothing happens. A huge waste of 70 minutes.
17 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I usually try not to rate films a 1 seeing as it is a pretty harsh statement. The acting in this particular film is not as atrocious as many which I have rated between 2 and 3 in the past. However, I feel that this was such an incredibly disappointing waste of time that I have to put my foot down.

Although slow, the beginning at least shows a little promise. I do like it when films use the 'mockumentary' angle to set the scene and some of the information gleaned from this first part is admittedly a little creepy.

Unfortunately this is completely ruined once we are taken inside the house to view the main character wandering around in the supposedly haunted building. A sweet load of nothing then proceeds to occur from then on out. Some thumps and a lot of heavy breathing is about all you get for the vast majority of the run time.

Anybody who mistakes this as good suspense is either far too easily amused, and/or inexperienced in horror.

'Paranormal Activity', while certainly no masterpiece, at least has scares in it. 'The Blair Witch Project', while artsy and low on scares, at least had somewhat original ideas (the rock piles, etc.) and characters who were a little bit interesting. In 'Muirhouse' we are treated to a run-of-the-mill haunting and a protagonist with as much personality as a soggy paper bag.

As for the end... it is so abrupt that my flatmate and I were sitting with our mouths open through the credits. Surely, we thought, this can't be it? Don't worry though; there's a short clip at the end of the credits. Actually, forget about it. It adds absolutely nothing to the story and it is not frightening in the slightest.

The premise was about the only positive to all of this which in turn makes it a negative: wasted potential.

Someone should remake this film. Seriously.
