Sociopaths w/ Too Much Time On Hands...
3 June 2018 | by aubie84See all my reviews

You have a choice in life- Get attention by hard work, seek positivity, overcome challenge, achieve life satisfaction... Or- This, needing attention by shock, negative posturing, and wallering in weird, base-need mindlessness- This film is an attempt at the latter and, like cult member insecurity behavior, they take peoples money to scare them as if they are now important, accepted and part of this club, new fetish, or documentary... Waste of time- Transparent in the intent, and insults the minds of productive, thinking humans. Here, sign my paper. Pay me your money... Boo- thanks. The 'scary' part only -is that people actually buy into it and can't think two steps ahead. Go to a haunted house?... Watch a horror flick?... See a Dominatrix?... but This is pathetic- I really tried, I strained even to get any smidge of value or understanding- but No- sad to watch distorted people with weak minds pretending to want to belong- Not sure which is more sad to watch- the dweebs (actors) paying to have weirdos scare them... Or the BOut guys taking these peoples money, filming a shake cam videos, and exploiting these troubled, psyche-dim participants- to make more money selling the silly process as a documentary? Too close to call-
