Time to review one of the laziest horror movies in recent memory. It does nothing original, blatantly stealing from other, better movies.

There's one scene that I really like and by that I mean the scene is so hilarious that it's funny. There's a scene where Ashley Greene and Bucky Barnes drive from their home and the garage door closes. Then the door opens on its own. It's supposed to be scary, but it's such a low-stakes "scare" that I was laughing my ass off.

Tom Felton (or, as I'll refer to him in the rest of the review, Draco Malfoy) plays an annoying college student. He, Bucky, and another girl played by Julianna Guill try to talk to a dead person. Because this is a crappy horror movie, something goes wrong and Guill gets taken. His character is a massive idiot too. Everything he does to try and take care of the entity involves doing the same thing except with more power. Is it any wonder that he's the first of the lead characters to go?

Ashley Greene is an absolutely awful actress. She has no talent beyong being insanely hot. The big problem with her is that she doesn't give off any discernable emotions. Even Kristen Stewart gives off emotions better. Also really bad is Bucky Barnes as her boyfriend. He's being haunted by a demonic entity and doesn't tell Greene about it until she's become involved. So yeah, it's Paranormal Activity except it's the guy being haunted. This goes hand-in-hand with my assertion that the film does nothing original. Virtually every scene was used in Paranormal Activity. The scenes that aren't stolen from that are stolen from HP Lovecraft and Poltergeist. One thing that the film does that seriously annoyed me was the faux-found footage scenes. There's scenes where the perspective is shown from the camera for no in-story reason. Out-of-story, it was done to make the film seem like Paranormal Activity.

I tried to live Tweet this film when I first saw it, but I got so bored I couldn't actually do it. Grade: F
