Boring watch, wouldn't watch again, and can't recommend unless you're just really into paranormal investigation.
This is honestly a great cast, and I'm not even going to say that they didn't perform adequately, but the characters written (whether or not by design) felt really lame, just people floundering in the scene. And maybe that supposed to be some kind of commentary on the types of people that go ghost hunting, but it just didn't work for me.
It is really hard to talk about the "twist", even mentioning there is a "twist", even with quotes supposedly ruins it. I did not enjoy the angle they approached, even "Safety Not Guaranteed", when they left it open ended, used the momentum of the "is it, is it not" conundrum to let you visualize how you thought it ended, but this feels like it just switched movies on us.
I think the last act is intended to bolster people with low self esteem, and tell them that they can do anything, but it's like saying you can do anything, as long as its the first 10 things on this list I have.
I will say that it is my least favorite Justin Long character, and as a big fan, that should be saying something. Don't get me wrong, he nailed it, but he was just perfectly an awful character.
