Boring and old
19 April 2017 | by dreamdoggieSee all my reviews

Paranormal Activity all over again with some bits shamelessly copied from other similar movies, but with a budget that makes the special effects look bad. Not that it matters, even if the special effects were good, it would still be pretty terrible. I've seen better acting in x-rated movies.

The point of having a small budget is to improvise and try to generate something new, not copy stuff other people have made and do it badly. Almost seems like it was done badly on purpose, as in to cater to the hipster judges at the awards.

Don't get fooled by the awards and nominations. This movie either had no competition in the awards or they were the kind of awards where "everyone is a winner".
