Many of the characters are super annoying, especially the children. None of them appear to act their age in any capacity.

The writing for the story is impossible to follow, the scenes makes no sense. It literally just feels like a series of short clips, none of which have anything in common, where just kind of edited together.
The acting is terrible and you can tell that every single one of the actors is locally sourced. You'll see the same people over and over again, even if they were killed. Sometimes you'll even see cases of people killing themselves.
Special effects? There is nothing "special" about the effects. It looks like they were drawn on with MS Paint.
The virtual joker is terrible. It's a commentary track that never stops and cannot be disabled. Often times it NEVER makes any sense. It is't funny, it isn't clever, it's annoying and frustrating.
I can already hear the haters making excuses for the film. And I hear you, I get it. There's a lot about this film that should be admired. The writer and director sold everything they had just to afford the camera they used to shoot the film.
But that doesn't excuse the sloppy, terrible writing and completely unhinged plot. I really feel films like this are really just fodder for pretentious reviewers to beat themselves off to. 'I Hate Everything', a youtube reviewer who is well known for being a jerk online called this movie "art". There is nothing artistic about this film, there is nothing enjoyable about this film, I have no idea how anyone can justify recommending this film to anyone.
This movie appears to be completely and utterly full of nonsense. I would go as far as saying fraudulent. There's a huge difference between a documentry and a dramatization of events that happened and clearly the people producing this film don't know the difference.
That quickly changed within the second or third episode and the anime basically devolved into a cooking drama with some bits of comedy here and there. At first I was disappointed with the direction the anime looked like it was moving in, but then that changed.
While the anime wasn't what I expected it to be from the first episode, it still seemed pretty good, the writing seemed decent and more importantly, the plot moved quickly.
Unfortunately, every season after that just continues to go down hill. It's more like a dramedie by season four, but it's not really written funny, the series just relies on a lot of overused anime tropes and funny faces more so than anything else.
The fan services has continued to get worse and worse with every episode. At first it started off with once in awhile and it has now gotten to the point, someone's clothes aret eploding off their bodies from eating some noodles or something every single episode. This just feels lazy, like they can't even rely on their own writing to keep the viewer's attention and instead has to rely on sex.
I had high hopes for this anime, but by season four it just falls flat on it's face.
The story is stupid, it makes no sense and the writing jumps all over the place. The comedy aspects of the film are cringey at best, not once eliciting so much as a smirk from me.
The "gore" aspects of the show may be some of the cheapest I've ever seen.
It's not funny, it isn't clever, I don't see how this movie is rated as well as it is.
When a detective is killed on the job, his friend uses a machine to bring him back from the dead. Now the chase is on as they search for the person responsible.
Don't get me wrong, I love horror films, zombie flicks, I enjoy b-horror films and horror comedy.
The issue is, this film isn't funny and it's hardly a horror film. And for a film that is supposed to be about a cannibalistic bioweapon, there is a complete and utter lack of gore or violence (or even blood for that matter), which is a key ingredient for these sort of crummy, low budget horror films.
I have no idea how they managed to get a 'R' rating for this film. Without a ounce of blood on screen and only mild swearing, this has got to be one of the dumbest, 'PG' zombie flicks I have ever seen.
Whoever wrote this crap and directed it should be ashamed.
It's like one of the worst, half-arsed PG versions of a horror movie I have ever seen in my life.
When aliens dump some sort of expirment on earth, it unleases these alien slugs that take over their victem's bodies and uses them to expand their ranks.
I'll be honest, this film is a real slow burner. It takes a long time to get to the point, which is the zombies. Most of the film you are going to be introduced to the human characters and the drama that surrounds their lives.
When you finally do arrive at the zombie hoards, it's a little underwhelming. While the special effects are fairly good, there's very little shown violence, simply implied violence and puddles of blood.
On top of that, a majority of the zombies don't actually pose much of a threat, simply shambling around, moaning and groaning. They don't make any real attempts at killing or eating their victems. There's really only one zombie that really poses a threat and that's because it has a ax it randomly swings around.
There's a reason why Night of the Creeps didn't do well in the threater, it foucses more on the characters and their lives than the action, blood and gore that should be ever present in a zombie flick.
The general idea is about a married man who is having problems with a unfaithful wife, who appears to be slowly going more and more insane as the film goes on.
It actually isn't until well over halfway through the film that the movie ever actually takes on any sort of aspect that is even remotely similar to any sort of horror film. And as soon as it does, it makes no sense whatsoever, which includes the ending.
Long winded, boring, this are just a few words I use to describe this film. The pacing is awful, the writing is awful, even the actors are awful. I can't believe I wasted my time watching this film.
After reading rave reviews about 'The Stuff', I decided to give it a go. I was raised on horror films from the 80's and 90's and am a gore hound at heart. The stuff was listed as one of the top body horror films of the 80's and it intrigued me.
But it wasn't anything that I expected. For a body horror film, the stuff is incredibly non-violent. There are a few scenes that may be slightly disturbing, but it's few and far between. Further, the film suffers from terrible writing and characters that making completely stupid decisions. Scenes jump all over the place, the overall plot hardly makes any sense.
A great example is when the main character Moe is trying to expose the stuff as a dangerous substance, so while trespassing on private property, instead of taking photos for evidence he decides he has to steal one of their trucks as evidence.
I mean, what?
Or how about how the film makes it look like that the entire population is in love with The Stuff, only to broadcast a radio show that says it's bad and suddenly they manage to just make it all go away? I mean really.
I am no stranger to old horror films, but The Stuff is just absolutely absurd and boring in almost every capacity.
The premise starts off simple enough, a ghost hunter and a medium are invited to a house to prove that it isn't haunted. Each are offered $50,000.00 USD to spend three days within the house and at the end declare the house is safe from any sort of paranormal activity.
The two investigators are at odds almost immediately upon meeting one another. One a staunch skeptic, the other a whimsy medium. As they spend the days (and nights) in the house, it becomes very clear everything isn't as it once appeared to be.
You can tell this is a budget b-horror film from the get go, but that isn't always a bad thing. The cinematography is of average quality, the special effects aren't terrible and the two actors are actually really good.
This film has a lot of comedy in it and when I first started watching it, it almost had a "Beetlejuice" vibe to it.
Further (and this is my favorite part), the writers took time to explain almost every aspect of the film, from character's back stories, to the house's history, why it was haunted and wrapped it all up in a decent little package.
I'll be blunt, this will NOT be the best horror/comedy you'll ever see. But it won't be the worst either. It's worth giving it a go if you need to get your horror fix on.
When all reliable avenuess fail him, he reaches out to a mysterious caller who claims he can show him ghosts. From there, things escalate out of control.
Have you ever browsed the b-horror film section of your local rental places in the late 90's and early 2000's? Every once and awhile you'll find a gem, hidden in the rough.
We Go on is one such gem.
The cinematography is passable. The actors were believable and the audio and musical scores were accetable. The story, while stunted in some parts is still enjoyable enough to warrant a full watch without being boring.
The cinematography is fine, the actors are okay. One of the biggest issues with the film itself is the audio, there are plenty of scenes where dialog is drowned out by background sound.
The film starts off on a good step, using what looks like old police footage to explain about the Defeo murders, unfortunately from there the movie makes a steady decline into worthlessness.
Instead of making the movie about the house, murders and haunting, they choose to focus on a bratty girl and her vegetable of a brother. The haunting takes a back seat to the family drama, which makes the movie even worse. Poor pacing, poor writing, the movie is less than thrilling.
Let's put it this way, there's a reason why they opted for a limited theatrical release and putting it up for free on Google play in October through December. It's a film even the producers and directors can't stand behind.
The reality is, the original Amityville was popular because it was portrayed as a true story, so the family drama was more humanized. With these other films, it's about the horror and this film completely ignores that.
So watching a few episodes, it's not really my cup of tea. To begin with, the TV series starts off right from the mini series and as a result, there's missing information you would otherwise need to know to understand some of the stuff they are talking about.
Ignoring that, the animation is fine, the voice actors are fine. There's no complaint there. What is a complaint is the fact the show doesn't feel like it has any sort of build up, since they really just throw all the information in your face right up front, so as far as a "mystery" cartoon goes, it's not very mysterious. It's more along the lines of Scooby Doo quality.
So when I was talking about Gravity Falls, there's two siblings in Welcome to the Wayne just like Gravity Falls. Their personalities are also similar in a lot of ways.
As a replacement for Gravity Falls it fails on all fronts.
Hell House LLC is one of the ones I liked.
The film is part found footage and part documentary mixed into a sort of surreal horror film. The fact that the film takes place in and around a pop-up Halloween haunted house only allows them to use weird and creepy effects without expecting people to suspend belief.
The movie has a decent pace, the actors are your average run of the mill B-Horror cast.
The writing is fine, but it's another one of those films that explain nothing and I really hate that.
Have you ever watched a film with no dialog? What about a film with no dialog, with terrible music and completely random scenes happening? One moment people are having sex, the next moment there's a black dude in a suit waving at you.
The reality is, as a idea, this movie isn't bad at all, executed, this movie is terrible and has no redeem qualities.
I strongly believe all of the positive reviews comes from people directly related t to the film.
The art is passable, but bland and unimaginative.
I don't normally watch foreign films with subtitles, but I needed something new to watch and the reviews on IMDb gave me the impression it would be something I'd find enjoyable. I wasn't really impressed with the movie.
This film is more like a thriller/Suspense film. It strings you along making you believe it is one kind of film and then it suddenly turns into some sort of weird scifi time travel film that makes no attempt at actually explaining itself.
The actors were fine, the cinematography was acceptable. It was just a poorly written film. It was a lackluster film that tries to impress with a weird "twsit" and all it did was leave me unsatisfied.
Riding the long dead corpse of the Amityville name, it looks as if some kid in high school thought it would be a good idea to use their parents video recorder to try and make a film.
Avoid this junk at all costs.
The movie centers around a son who discovers he has the opportunity to inherent his Father's estate, which comes along with a hefty amount of money.
But there's a catch, he needs to get his Mother's death certificate. Everything seems easy enough until he discovers that his Mother's death certificate was actually moved to a different location and in order to get it, he would need to file go through a lengthy (and expensive) legal process.
So instead of going through the legal system and getting the paper work how he should (legally), he decides to break into the now defunct sanitarium with a friend.
I am not a lawyer, but the entire concept that the movie is focused on seems kind of sketchy, you'd think all of this would have been handled already. And why would their son need to go to court to get a copy of his Mother's death certificate?
Besides being riddled full of weird plot holes, at first glance the movie appears to be your generic haunted sanitarium , but it starts to get really goofy as the film goes on. Frankly, I feel the movie would have been much better if it had went for the generic spooky ghost film instead of what they went with.
The acting and cinematography are fine for what it is; I have no complaints. The writing is pretty shaky and the plot of the movie doesn't really make a whole lot of sense.
To be honest, I wouldn't even rent this from a RedBox. If it came on NetFlix or Hulu or something and you got some time to burn (the movie isn't even 2 hours), then go for it, but I can't recommend spending actual money to see this film.
With that being said, you can tell it's a labor of love. The cinematography isn't very good and the dialog is downright awful.
Further, the portrayal of Freddy Krueger feels really off base. The short film makes assumptions that Krueger already had plans to become a demon and that the song preceded his death, which I don't really personally believe.
I can understand the appeal for some people, but unfortunately I just don't feel it's very good.
The dialog is largely boring. I wasn't invested at all in this film and they did very little to try and capture my attention.
As a huge fan of the franchise, you would think it'd be awfully hard to make Freddy Krueger and his story boring and yet somehow they managed to do just that. The best part of the film was the art they did for the cover/poster.
You can find it for free on YouTube, you be the judge, but I feel it's a waste of a half an hour.
The movie takes awhile to get going. The writing is bad, the dialog is bad, the actors are bad. The cinematography is horrible. It looks like some middle schoolers found a old VHS camcorder and decided to shoot a student film.
It's advertised as a comedy, but there's nothing funny about it. The short film failed to do so much as illicit a smirk from me.
If you want to see something better, more well done and more true to the Ghostbusters franchise, check out Five Nights At Freddy's Vs. Ghostbusters, but stay away from this poop.
