4.0 out of 5 stars ALRIGHT HOUSE. SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT. 31 Jan 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The story is fairly simple. Paul (Stephen Twardokus) and Stella (Liesel Kopp) move into a haunted house so Paul can write a book on it. Turns out the house is haunted, Stella moves out. Paul does not and investigates further.

This is a plain and simple low budget ghost story. It was well scripted and directed. Stephen Twardokus who wrote and produced the film was weakest as an actor. They should of had someone else in that role. The story line is simple without any twists. The intent of the film is to scare, i.e. make you jump. It tries to this a dozen or so times, and actually made me jump once, something I don't normally do in the daylight and sober. Don't expect a great horror tale, just a good ghost movie for the sleep over.

What we know about the ghost: It can throw a basketball, but can't hit the rim. It can stack chairs, but can't decorate. It can turn on a radio, but has trouble changing stations. And it must be a male because it leaves the draws open.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Lacks heavy violence and blood.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really??? 23 Aug 2013
By Bubba's Mom & Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My husband & I watched the trailer, and this movie looked like it had potential. Well, the trailer showed the best parts(like most do). The movie was very slow with too many fillers, not enough ghostly substance.
The storyline itself was good,but it was filmed poorly with bed sheets as ghosts & chairs piled on a table(like in Poltergeist). I mean.....really??!!! Give us a break! Not much imagination with the filming of this story. There were a couple of jumpy scenes,but nothing to brag about. Not worth the $3.99 rental here on Amazon. Huge disappointment!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars No No No 17 Aug 2013
By Mary - Published on Amazon.com

Friday night - excited to settle in for a good horror movie - start the movie annnnnnddd.....no - not a good movie. I knew we were in trouble from the moment it started. You can immediately get a sense of where a director is on a scale from how he chooses to employ or not employ music. Whatever chance the movie had of building suspense of tension is repeatedly ruined by the drone of what sounds like a bad temp score that someone has decided to make more impactful by turning the volume up and down. I have seen great movies shot digital for no money. So, it doesn't mean much when someone points out how it was made for no money. This movie looks as if there was no money and then it had not the talent or innovation to compensate for lack of money. BLAIR WITCH anyone?? Great movie - no money. It's nice that friends have stopped by to write nice things and be supportive, but I suggest to those looking for a good indie horror film to keep on looking...

1.0 out of 5 stars Please save yourself time and watch anything else. 6 Oct 2013
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
If this were on free streaming I would say maybe watch a few minutes and see for yourself, but since it is on paid streaming I felt that I should really explain how bad this movie really is. To begin I would like to make it clear that I am a fan of low budget films, and I think that certain allowances for them could be made, so my review will reflect this. This film is one of the worst films I have ever watched. It's one of those few films that fall into the black hole of being bad, but not so bad that it's enjoyable, which makes it a huge chore to watch. At best this movie is bland; at worst it's downright annoying. The background music is nothing but a constant repetition of the same few notes, only changing when the scene was supposed to be tense, therefore removing all tension from the scene, then culminating with a loud jump scare, which usually can't even startle. The script is more a long string of outdated horror movie tropes tied together with wooden dialogue. As other reviews have stated, they used the chair stacking from Poltergeist, the ghost under a sheet from the Scooby Doo cartoon, and the random sounds from every uncreative horror film.

The movie seems to have been filmed with good cameras and microphones, but the lighting is excessively dark, seriously dark to the point where we stopped the movie and tried another movie to make sure our TV wasn't damaged.

This movie is very boring, and its running time has been extended with an inordinately large amount of lingering shots, and multiple views of a single scene, this movie could easily drop thirty or forty five minutes with proper editing.

I will conclude my review with the final and most grievous problem, the cast. I honestly didn't know who was the most bored, me and my wife or the cast of the film. The main actor delivers all of his lines with the vigor of an Ambien, and with the same bored expression. Only occasionally does he make the effort to say something louder or grunt and breathe hard. The rest of the cast isn't much better, but they don't warrant much mention since they are in hardly enough scenes to get on your nerves. Overall I would say this was less a movie and more a challenge to make a horror film that could replace a cup of warm milk on a sleepless night, and on that level it succeeded.

1.0 out of 5 stars If your scared of a bed sheet then maybe 23 Aug 2013
By suicyco - Published on Amazon.com

I kept waiting for the movie to be scary but it never happened. There were so many opportunities for this movie to make you jump or give you shivers up your spine but every single time they managed to screw that up. Recommended only if bed sheets scare you.

That was horrible. I couldn't make it past the first thirty minutes. I'm pretty sure this movie was made by high school students. That's the nicest thing I can say.
