Thoughts on Paranormal Investigation
Characters – Andrei is the man leading the investigation, he has worked in the paranormal field before with this latest investigation becoming the toughest of his career to date. Dylan is the man that has become possessed by the evil which has seen him start to act aggressive towards his loved ones.
Performances – The performances in the film are hard to judge, mostly because a lot of the film is just behind a camera.
Story – The story follows a possession case which sees a paranormal investigator trying to get to the bottom of the case. The problems with this story start early because we have seen everything that happens before, we get nothing new and just follow the basics over everything that was done in the Paranormal Activity franchises. This is dull to watch without making us care about either of the main two characters.
Horror – The horror in this film is slow and ineffective, the final act of the film is the closest we get to anything remotely scary and just lets us feeling let down.
Settings – The film is set in one house which seems like it is in one location, the house is on a busy street which does work, showing us this could happen to anyone. The problem comes it just feels like we are watching a moody person potential possessed.
Special Effects – The effects are poor through this film, we could have good moments, only it fails.
Final Thoughts – This is just another poor found footage movie that just misses on every level it is trying to get to work.
Overall: Boring throughout.
