“The actual film was a parody of paranormal activity and the Amityville Horror, although it is the u0026#39;sameu0026#39; house it is now in the suburbs rather than countryside… but we need not mention the finer details. I loved both the original and Ryan Reynolds version of Amityville Horror so I thought that I would give it a chance regardless. Itu0026#39;s not the same story or even a good sequel. Itu0026#39;s shot like Paranormal Activity and seems to be an improv situation as no one really seems to know what to say. They try to add narrative with a child and a video camera who feels it necessary to annoy everyone in the film with the camcorder and me with his recap of each bad u0026#39;horroru0026#39; segment. Where as in PA (which I did like) the characters seem scared… Not this kid, as he says things are u0026#39;really creepyu0026#39;- Yes Tyler (or whatever generic name you have) it is actually if I was you Iu0026#39;d be like maybe we shouldnu0026#39;t be here rather than worry about your future career in documentaries.Although, he may get a job in one as he canu0026#39;t act.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis films acting I have got to say is pretty bad… really bad. I will watch films that give chance to new/young actors but I genuinely think they found these people on the street. I donu0026#39;t mean to offend but the emotions come across as if they were taken out of a labelled jar. The actors donu0026#39;t morph as a cast and the Dadu0026#39;s tone from the start makes me think that they casted him because he has the attitude of a serial killer with a slow mono-tone voice, and thats pretty much it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI wanted to like this film due to my likings of any horror with a half decent storyline and OK effects. But even as low budget I cannot see any need for this film… No one is going to get a career from this.”
