'30 Nights of Paranormal Activity With the Devil'
(French Stewart, Danny Woodburn, Flip Schultz, et al / DVD / R / 2012 / 20th Century Fox)
Overview: When a young family, who can't seem to stop filming themselves, moves into a house that turns out to be haunted, they meet up with a host of creepy characters -- including a horny vampire-hunting president who wants to emancipate their dragon-tattooed daughter. With help from the hysterically high-energy Ghost Brothers the family sets out to solve the mystery of the haunted house.
DVD Verdict: In truth, this movie is NOT funny, has NO good qualities attached to it, and is pretty much disgusting and vile throughout! I'm sure it will appeal to a certain level of society out there today, but not an intellectual one, that's for sure!
The movie starts off as a Storage Battles TV episode, where two girls spend $12,000 on what's behind its closed doors. Well, aside from a lot of boxes, Adele singing at a piano, and a huge rubber dildo, there is a Lost Footage VHS tape that they watch.
And so the movie begins as it shows a husband and father (French Stewart) having an exorcism performed on him - by clowns! According to the thin plot line, he killed his entire family in this house that now a young couple of moved into. Weird things happen so they set up cameras to catch everything re: 'Paranormal Activity.'
Sh*t happens, left right and center, none of it funny. The worst is the introduction of the Bill & Ted characters of the show, the Ghost Brothers. The scene in their van is the longest, most tedious, brain-numbing 8 mins I've ever had to sit through! The daughter is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it's more Honest Abe than it is dragon!
And, come the end when the real phantom is revealed as a British headless ghost just there to piss them off (which is never explained why), I'm sorry, but no one should have even made it THAT far anyway to care!
