Better than most Asylum efforts, but could have been better
The premise was sort of intriguing, so that was my main reason for seeing The Haunting of Whaley House. It is a mediocre movie, but The Asylum have done much worse. It does get plaudits for the better than average production values- the photography and scenery are decent and while nothing great the effects could have been much worse- an attempt at a creepy and suspenseful atmosphere that few other Asylum movies have even attempted let alone do it successfully and some decent jolts and scares. However, while the acting has been worse before it is nothing special either, if more bland than terrible. The music is rather repetitive, while the characters are uninteresting stereotypes and the dialogue is trite and has no flow. The story has its moments but does fall into generic predictability and is further advantaged by some pedantic pacing and a contrived ending. The attacks eventually get cheesy and were on the unoriginal side to start with, and the gore is excessive and in the end unnecessary. Despite these many flaws, compared to other movies from The Asylum it is not that terrible. 4/10 Bethany Cox
