hongkong666 For a Found Footage Horror movie this one was actually pretty good and the characters all were flashed out greatly. A lot of creepy moments are to be found in this movie and the acting of the grandparents is really impressive. I do hate the role of Tyler though, simply because I never ever would approve of anyone feeling the urge to rap. This is basically the only really annoying part and the movie would be so much better without this gimmick. Especially because this kid is not even close to being good or unique. It is not even that much about the acting but the question: What if this kind of scenario would happen to me, my kids, or close friends? Close to the end the movie gets really intense and it is definetely worth a watch, allthough the definitive ending ruins the experience.
contact-86263 First up, I think "rap" is some of the most awful "music" (and I use that in the loosest possible way) ever dreamt up. However, I was willing to forgive the movie when it was used by the young boy at the start - I just skipped past it.Then there was the meat of the movie - yes, a nice build up of tension. It's a little unusual - I would have thought the kids would have started being more worried earlier on, but perhaps with their "documentary" they thought it was useful material and not overly bothersome.All good so far. Then the story takes a massive downward turn, crashing and burning into the ground. When these old people, who have dementia, attack the kids and the kids do almost nothing at all - yet amazingly they manage to hold on to their cameras the entire time! The girl gets locked in a room with the crazy woman - is that a POKER I spy that she moves the camera light over twice? Does she even think to use it to clobber the insane woman (who is under a bed sheet and can't even see!) or break the door? No! Likewise, the boy is in the kitchen with plenty of kitchen implements to use as weapons but does NOTHING. Then the girl arrives on the scene, having escaped (finally) and, well, you'd think she'd grab that big old pot in the sink to crack the old man's skull. NOPE! She just pushes him so he can get up and attack her.Useless and totally unbelievable dribble. I felt thoroughly cheated by the last 10 minutes. Don't waste your time with this - I honestly think those two kids could have written a better script and filmed it in a more believable way than this crap.At least I was saved from watching the credits. More (c)rap from the boy - I just shut the film off. There are very few films that make me angry and wish I had the time back that I invested in watching them - this is one of them. Avoid!
Michael Ledo Young wanna-be rapper Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) and his sister Becca (Olivia DeJonge) go visit their grandparents in remote "no bars" Masonville, Pa. There was an incident where their mom (Kathryn Hahn) left home. We don't know what it was, this is mystery number 1. Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie) and Nana (Deanna Dunagan) are happy to see their grandchildren. The kids film everything, this is another hand held feature. The kids are given two rules: Do not go into the basement...mold. Mystery 2. And don't come out of your room after 9:30, short lived mystery 3.The grandparents seem nice and normal at times and at other times they have to deal with various old age diseases which makes their behavior seem odd, but the excuse is, they are just old.The ending was a herky jerky camera which gave us a long view of Olivia DeJonge's sweater, but even a perv like me wished they just had a better angle on the events. Tyler decides to use female singers in lieu of curse words as we hear him say "Katy Perry" et al. at odd times. This made the film slightly humorous, something it needed. The action typical builds as things get weirder as mysteries are solved.Guide: 2 F-bombs. No sex. Rear nudity (Deanna Dunagan)
ronaldomessirroney This movie is so poorly acted, poorly written, and unintentionally funny, that you'd almost think that this is an M. Night Shyamalan film. Every time the movie tries to be scary, it is funny. And every time the movie tries to be funny, it is cringey. It absolutely blows my mind that people actually like this movie. The twist was the same twist from a Spongebob episode from over a decade ago. Though the twist is actually alright, I just couldn't take it seriously after my brain made that connection. Absolute cancer.
