Reel Nightmare (2017)
User ReviewsReview this title
A group of film students from Miskatonic University venture into an old Victorian house with a grisly past to shoot a last-minute thesis, but the discovery of a mysterious book called the Necronomicon brings production to a deadly halt when they awaken the spirits of three vengeful witches.
What a bunch of hooey.
How this clown got someone to give him money to direct this piece of garbage is beyond me. He's untalented.
The script is a total derivative rip off of every movie ever made in this genre.
The acting is below amateurish.
But the REAL problem is this horrible director. He really should be homeless living on the street. Please stop the madness and don't fund this clown. He has no talent.
The film stars Madeleine Heil who will be appearing in "Clowntergeist" a film whose name I just love. I will give Madeleine credit, who poured her heart out into this film. Unfortunately the special effects didn't go beyond black and white film footage and contact lenses. The film attempted a few light moments that didn't work. The dialogue needed improvement and the off and on random possession didn't pan out. The film actually got more boring during the climax scenes when you realize, "this is it." Guide: No sex or nudity. I don't recall any swearing
Who casted these guys as actors? This is sometimes so bad that it gets funny. I have seen a lot better in music videos or even TV commercials for breakfast cereals. Who wrote the dialogues? Repetitive and boring. They talk so much about things nobody would ever find interesting.
What actually happens for 40 min is close to nothing. How is that even possible? They could have elaborated on the old mansion, on the story or on the characters. Thos is a whole new dimension of boring.
There was one scene with really outstanding visual effects. You get books flying around. That was so bad. Even adjusting them on a rope and moving the rope with the books would have been more impressive. I haven't seen something like that in ages.
So much potential wasted here. Do yourself a favour, go to the dentist, clean the filter of your vacuum cleaner or check if your vaccinations are up to date. Can think of so many other things I wouldn't like to do rather than having to watch that film again.
I give 1 for story idea and 1 for everybody involved to finish a project like that.
