Episode 50

Episode 50

Hmmm…what to say about Episode 50?  Fair to middling, I guess best sums it up.  There’s nothing new here, nothing shocking but as far as acting and story goes, this is a quick, easy pill to swallow.

We start out rather cutely with a TV crew of paranormal investigators investigating a couple’s house.  My favorite part here is, when hunting around for the ghost, the husband is carrying a hammer (as if that’s going to do any good) and then accidentally beams his wife in the head.  The next shot is her with a bandage and black eye.  I know, I know, I shouldn’t laugh just the way they do it was hysterical (I’m also a little lacking in sleep though…).

Sorry, honey.

Sorry, honey.

The paranormal investigators aren’t your usual type – they’re there to explain away all these occurrences through natural means.  One, mice are setting off the fancy equipment other paranormal investigators sold these people and two, hubby is a slob and has left open not only paint cans downstairs but also things like coolants which are creating fumes throughout the house which in turn makes the couple dizzy, nauseous, etc.  And this is how we see an episode of the paranormal investigators t.v. show.

Next up is some dying guy who owns an abandoned asylum that’s supposed to be one of the most haunted places ever.  He hires our paranormal team to spend the weekend at the asylum because (at least as far as I can tell) if they find something paranormal, then he’ll be a ghost.  If they debunk everything there, then he’s going to spend eternity in Hell.  Um, k…

Unfortunately, our paranormal team has to also work with a Christian paranormal team (which is new to me – I didn’t think the Christian religion was big on the paranormal but maybe that was just my church) who are there to PROVE that the place IS haunted.

Episode 50 3

Of course since we’ve got two paranormal teams in an insanely haunted asylum, things go pretty much straight to hell but it’s with very little blood or violence.  There’s no chills or scares here, just your standard “made ya jumps” and ghostly ghastly quick moving women.  And then it gets a little cheesy at the end.

It doesn’t suck but it’s nothing special either – silly fun if you’re in a crowd that scares easily.

  1. It sounds ridiculous! I love that the guy means to fight ghosts with a hammer!

  2. Doesn’t this found footage thing start the last third with: “Two guys are running out of something!!! They’re still being found footage filmed but there’s only two of them!!! How is there a third?? They find a gate to hell!!! One of them is dead but someone is still found footaging them!!!” or something??? I remember being poo poo disappointed with this.

    Luv that you’re back : )

    sounds like one big “meh” but I may give it a watch eventually. good review, misty!

  4. Think I will be skipping this one, looks quite awful! I am so tired of found footage ghost movies with “creepy” looking woman that are not very creepy at all.

  5. I’ll stick to Ghostbusters II, thank you very much.

And.........Action!
