Mini Review:

I must say I really enjoyed this movie and it was great that it was based on a truly haunted place, the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. The only thing I really didn’t like is they didn’t do a good job at all on explaining what paranormal was going on. I’m not sure if it was ghosts, UFOs or what. They never bothered to explain the man one of the main characters thought was spying on them or the lights in the sky. Besides all that though it was another great found footage type of movie.

Movie Rating: 4 out of 5

Mini Review:

I had originally rated this just a tad bit lower cause of the quality but then I realized it’s an older film and that kind of changed my opinion of it.

For a free movie on Amazon Prime it wasn’t too bad, kind of wish there was more of a paranormal aspect to it besides the last 5 minutes really. Also, wish they would not have used up so much time explaining the history of the place at the beginning of the film. Got kind of boring really quick.

We all know though I am a sucker for any found footage movie no matter how good or how bad it may be. This one though is watchable and entertaining for the most part.

If you’re a fan of the Found Footage genre and have Amazon Prime you should check this film out, plus it’s free. >> Strawberry Estates <<

Mini Review:

When I first saw this on Amazon Prime I thought to myself, not another Amityville movie. Just what the world needs but then I saw it was directed by Henrique Couto and I saw two other movies made by him earlier in the week (Alone in the Ghost House & Devil’s Trail) and I enjoyed them. So I figured what will it hurt to watch one more pointless Amityville movie. Plus the fact it was a found footage movie that really helped me decide on watching it.

And I must say I wasn’t disappointed in the movie. So even if you are tired of Amityville movies give this one a try, you’ll enjoy it.

Movie Rating: 4 out of 5
