Storyline

A group of amateur paranormal investigators, frustrated with the lack of any solid evidence after months of attempts, decide to provoke and taunt spirits from the afterlife in a last ditch attempt for a paranormal encounter. The experiment works, but they have awakened something angry and very deadly - something that follows them home and now will not leave. The investigators must now defend their home, and their family, from the spirits who were brought into this world and are not going without taking some souls with them. Written by Wild Eye Releasing

I must address my biggest complaint with the film. When the film starts it introduces you to a whole set of characters from a "ghost hunting" team. Some establishment of character is attempted, or at least feels so. At about 30 minutes into the film, almost the entire cast is never seen from again except one. Why was the time spent explaining little nuances about the characters if you are never going to see them again? The character that the camera does stick with had the smallest build up. It felt like a waste of time. The remainder of the film is the "ghost" activity, which mostly consist of the ghost or whatever it is spooking people.

This makes the story or complete lack there of very weak. No explanation is given to the ghost or why it was around in any way at all.

The acting wasn't horrible. Not great by any means. Far better than your average B horror selection. Doug the plumber came off a little silly at points.

Special note would go to some of the music which presented a very good 80's horror feel, though it was pretty limited.

Something to watch if you have seen virtually every other available film on netflix/amazon.
