The character of Hans Voltz is loosely based on Hans Holzer, an American paranormal researcher and author. He wrote well over 100 books on supernatural and occult subjects for the popular market as well as several plays, musicals, films, and documentaries, and hosted a television show, "Ghost Hunter". One of his most famous cases occurred at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville and later formed the basis for the Amityville Horror series of books and films. The Hans Voltz character is mentioned in the film as having been involved in the Amityville case. See more »
I picked this one up at Walmart along with the Haunted Rectory. Both movies have the same actor in it. This one however, has no special effects whatsoever. They used people in cloaks with hoods like monks with white ceramic masks. Not scary at all. They even used music during attacks that sounded almost identical to the music used in "The Entity", a timeless horror classic. I was unimpressed and saddened I spent $10 on it. Better to download it for a buck or two to watch or rent it if you can. This is just my opinion though. You can watch it and come up with your own opinion but honestly this one and Haunted Rectory are both very dry and plain. Not sure how it really gives way to the actual true stories but I was unimpressed.
