baby's first horror movie
12 August 2018 | by phenomynoussSee all my reviews

To be as fair as possible, this is not even close to the worst horror movie I have ever seen. But it is done with such a complete and total lack of any sort of spirit or élan that it just doesn't deserve anything other than the lowest possible score.

the acting is bad, but not so laughably bad that it becomes fun to mock and deride. some of the actors are clearly doing their best and you can't be mad or derisive at them for it. they're at least putting in effort where it seems absolutely no one else is.

and indeed, "no effort" would probably be a better theme for this film and title for this review. this film looks and feels like it was written, produced, and directed by someone who has seen exactly 4 movies in their entire life, and 3 of them were about haunted houses.

The ghost hunting stuff is tepidly skimmed upon; we're just supposed to expect and take for granted that they have all this supposed ghost hunting equipment and that it means "spooky ghosts" whenever it makes noise. there's no attempt to even condescend to the audience in explaining one or two of the devices.

the music is nonstop all throughout of some of the most generic, nondescript horror movie background music likely taken from an archive and put together out of some misguided belief that every single scene needs overbearing and blatantly obvious music cues as though this were a silent movie musical. it gets to a point where it's so obnoxiously overdone as to come across as amateurish as a children's horror show episode too cheap to be Goosebumps.

further driving home the "knock-off children's horror show" mood is the actor playing Quentin, the host of the ghost hunting show who doesn't actually interact with the cast much and acts like what a child might imagine an A-list celebrity talks and acts like. They are a one-dimensional character straight out of Power Rangers, but with no comic relief to justify their existence here.

virtually everything else about the film is so boring, generic, and formulaic as to not even warrant attention paid to it. the CG effects are bad and put center-stage so we can clearly see and admire how terrible they are, rather than used sparingly and quickly to enhance a scene. the camera work is flatly "there", as though they set up a camera, turned it on, and that's it. the lighting is as wide open and brightly lit as a sitcom, completely detracting from the mood of a horror movie, and the dialogue is too terrible to be of note, and yet somehow not bad enough to be laughable.
