So why not 1 star? Well, to be fair the twist at the end was intriguing and a genuine surprise. It would have been more effective, but to be honest the broad plot of father Conway and the faux reason for the what was going on - it just wasn't holding my interest. The female lead was alright. Didn't really get the feels for the main guy or his little brother. The little brother was actually best possessed! There were some moments, there's a scene where some possessed person's face gets sliced off and there's half a face lying around looking around the room - that was quite a cool, if gruesome touch. Gore was actually quite light apart from that scene, it's not a buckets of blood and hope for the best film like the recent remake of Evil Dead, the trouble is, it's not really creepy, super-tense jump scare like the Conjuring. It's almost as if the direct wanted to tell this story but he wasn't quite sure what kind of story it was.
So yeah, worth watching, ONCE. If you like a creepy, everyone get's possessed fest set in an Asylum. Not a memorable film though and the scares won't keep me awake at night - it's not a spine-tingler. It definitely DOES have it's moments though! Good effort, but could've been better.
I would say that if you're fed up of watching those found footage films that are so prevalent these days and fancy a discount, comedic version of a demonic possession film then give this a try. If on the other hand you really dislike gore and prefer psychological horror, please look elsewhere.
For those who do choose to watch, let me just tell you that the most original concept in this film (by Hollywood standards) is the overweight boy giving his slimmer and supposedly better looking friend advice on how to get sexual action. Other than that little cinematic anomaly this film is very much just another offering from the teen slasher and demonic possession in a mental asylum subgenre.
One last thought, this film is better IMO if you imagine that the characters are so high (from the plethora of drugs they do at the beginning) that they're imagining everything and it's all a drug induced mania.
It was very different to what we expected
We did chuckle a few times during the film.
Equally there were some moments that were very intense edge of seat stuff.
watch out for the twist or two
The inclusion of humour (AND the way that it's used) is certainly a big plus - I love the searching the web for an exorcism tutorial - but it's just not enough to hide the fact that the plot is by-the-numbers.
All in all, okay if you're young and bored but this doesn't bring anything new or scary or the table.
There is never a dull moment, so what if there are elements from other horror films : possession, spider walk etc.
It is still bloody good fun and that's what you want when you are watching horror.
When will producers of this kind of movies understand that :
> Suggesting, not showing, is what is truly terrifying.
> Gore and blood aren't scary, just gross.
