In the movie they claim that there were 8 women in the dorm that night, and that Richard Speck killed 7 of them and that 8th women escaped which is incorrect. There were 9 women in the dorm that night, Richard murdered 8 of them, and the 9th women escaped. See more »
This sub-genre "found footage" story is really getting stale.
Whether you're a fan of paranormal stories, whether it's a cheesy SyFy show, the trilogy's of PA's, PE's or the half dozen other films that have copied off this exact sort of theme, you have to be getting a bit bored with it. If this was released five years ago it would have stood it's ground, but instead it's just another average "found footage" compilation. The fact that they didn't roll any credits to give it more of a real feel only succeeded in hiding the real names of most of the untalented cast members.
It started as usual with an overnight TV ghost hunt in the abandoned building where Richard Speck murdered 7 young nurses. It contained no CGI effects & contained only two scenes that would be considered gory(both of which are not necessary,plenty of good scary films without either). Some of the actors where annoying, untalented & stupid but that seems to be OK in a film where you already know of their imminent demise. The "apparition" isn't seen at any time & does things that would make a demon jealous, the use of strong physical force is somewhat out of place in a haunted house, but without it the film would be more of a sleep aid than a Thriller/Horror and action/violence is always a welcome site for me in the "haunted" genre. At times it was creepy & if you are a big fan of the sub'genre you may like it quite a bit. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. It's good for a 3.8/10. Is it worth $3.49 on PPV? If you are really into the things in my first sentence than maybe, otherwise no way. Oh & you have to love the other 10/10 star review here, must be the first "found footage" film they have seen over in Bollywood. IF YOU want great found footage watch V/H/S(2012) nuff said!
