Dead Collections: Absolutely dreadful
15 March 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The ninth, yes ninth movie in the Paranormal Investigations franchise this goes in a very different direction than the other films and not in a good way.

Paranormal Investigations 9 otherwise known as Dead Collections otherwise known as Paranormal Captivity otherwise known as The Haunting otherwise known as Haunting in New Jersey should be used as a tool in film schools, an educational film of what not to do when making a movie.

It tells the story of a girl whose husband commits suicide. She moves in with her uncle only to find that malicious forces are out to get her (Insert dun dun duuuun here).

For a 500k budget this looks and sounds cheap, that can be forgiven if it makes up for it in other areas but this really doesn't. The writing is terrible, the cinematography is laughable, the cast is mostly dreadful and the whole thing really doesn't have much in the way of redeeming features.

I like the fact it defies usual conventions and has two antagonists in addition to the supernatural threat, but that simply isn't interesting for the movie to have any credibility.

The movie is simply an amateurish embarrassment, each layer you peel back reveals something even more cringe inducing.

One to avoid even if ghost themed horrors are your thing, on account of it having minimal ghost and almost no horror.

The Good:

Linnea Sage

The Bad:

Looks cheap

Sounds cheap

Is cheap
