Poltergeist Encounters (2016)

Synopsis:

A questionable group of paranormal investigators with their own web series receive the offer of a lifetime: stay one night in a potentially haunted house for a large sum of money. What could possibly go wrong? It seems like easy money to Anton, team leader of the group, and privately, an unbeliever in the supernatural. Mick, Roach, and Terrance are all investigators that take the entire situation far too lightly at first, before everything they believe changes. On that fateful night, they learn that it’s all fun and games until things get real.

Mini Movie Review:

For what it is, this movie was actually not half bad and pretty entertaining. You can tell they were trying to ride the success of The Blair Witch Project, heck even their tagline hints at it with saying “this ain’t no walk in the woods”.

This is a found footage movie and we know I love me some found footage. This movie is about 4 young people that agree to stay in a haunted mansion until dawn, and we can pretty much sum up what happens without saying anything. It’s not all the original but like I said it is entertaining. So with the Halloween season upon us and you are looking for a decent ghost flick to watch give this one a try.

Movie Rating: 3 out of 5

Mini Movie Review:

This movie surprised me, it turned out a lot better then I figured it would. The thing that bummed me out the most was the fact they didn’t use the actual Villisca Axe Murder House or at least one that looked almost like it. I think there was one scene though where they did flash a quick glance of it but I am not sure. Not a fan of rewinding or fast forwarding using NetFlix.

This movie is your kind of run of the mill haunted house/demonic possession film. But it is really entertaining. Two friends plan on one more ghost investigation before one of them leaves town, and right before they get ready to leave the girl which is new to the area and an outcast shows up at their house and basically invites herself to come along. Which they did decide to take her. They end up going to the Axe Murder house to take a guided tour but they feel like to many things were left out of the tour so they decide to hang out and wait for the place to close and sneak back into the house.

When the tour guides leave the finally sneak back in through the basement and make it back up into the main house. When they decide to split up is when things start to go down hill. A couple of bullies from their high school find out they are there and decide to show up also to terrorize them. As one by one they get possessed by the ghosts of the house who will make it through the night? All of them? One of them? None of them? If you need something to watch, this is worth the time spent.

Movie Rating: 4 out of 5
