Based on a true WHAT?

Ho hum, another x-jumps-per-minte shakycam haunted-house tale supposedly based on a true story. They heark back to the whole “we’ll use the actors’ real names to give this a semblance of verity” from The Blair Witch Project, which is roughly the most interesting thing about it. I admit that part of me’s interested to find out which parts of this are true (I suspect it’s the bits that frame the actual picture of the sitting-around-and-telling-ghost-stories variety), but not enough to actually go and do the research; this is just another case of a movie using the “based on a true story” shtick to try and sell some tickets (or, in this case, rentals). If you’ve seen every other shakycam horror film in existence and need just one more, this will fill the bill. Otherwise, avoidable. *

 

I was going to give you the trailer, but this is SO much cooler.
