    MUST BUY!!!

    A must buy for all Halloween enthusiast! Not your stereotypical found footage flick. The combination of a great plot, cast and production quality will leave you wanting it to never end. If you thought haunted houses were all about blood, guts, ghost and goblins think again. After watching this movie you’ll think twice next time you step foot in a haunted house. Characters Zack, Bobby, Mikey and Brandy excelled in their respective roles. It will have you on the edge of your seat throughout, curious to know what will happen next. Hopefully, what’s next is a sequel! Sure to be a Halloween classic for many years to come!

    Can you handle an EXTREME HAUNT?

    This movie includes both a documentary, and a movie about looking for an "extreme haunt" The documentary is actually a little longer then the movie, and the movie is actually a found footage style making of a documentary movie, lol yeah. The movie is very interesting if you like haunted houses. No not houses haunted by ghosts, but actual Halloween style attractions. The people in the movie are searching for an extreme attraction where they take things beyond the normal limits. In their journey they stop at haunted houses and interview owners, and characters. Their interest leads to their stocking from some very spooky characters. The ending isn't the best but I enjoyed this movie.

    This is one of the found footage type films where the victims cameras are after the fact, the beginning through the middle of this film are where it really shines, and shows some plot and creepiness. The ending falls short and leaves something to be desired, it's not a bad ending but it leaves me feeling incomplete and without closure. Out of the three people that watched this with me one absolutely loved it and thought it was wonderful, BUT the others and I felt it was mediocre at best and I love cheesy and campy films or horror movies in general but the this one is best to rent I would suggest.

    I bought this movie and was really excited with all of the FX masks on the cover thinking it was going to be completely amazing. I couldn't of been more wrong. Don't get me wrong it had good parts and some of the haunts they showed in the movie were really cool. But I think over all I think it was just disappointing and the ending was horrible. I honestly wouldn't recommend this to just any of my friends but some that would appreciate the haunts and the affects in the movie.

    Not worth your time...

    The movie started out well, but halfway through it starts to drag and then it gets a little tedious. I will say that there were some scenes that really get your imagination going, but I am in no means saying this movie is scary. If you want to waste your time on it, for free, it's not Netflix. If you hate movies with terrible endings, don't watch this. **SPOILER** everyone gets buried alive and then the title card shows, cut to credits.

    Utterly generic found footage horror film

    This fill is based upon a 2011 documentary of the same name, about a group of five friends traveling Texas to find the scariest haunted house possible. Both the documentary and the film are included on the disc, the documentary is very interesting and worth checking out but the film itself is completely formulaic and forgettable.

    I purchased this movie after reading reviews stating it was the best scary movie in years...actually it's like a Blair Witch Project (where you are watching a movie in which the main characters are filming the events) that takes place in various haunted attractions. New location concept but I really didn't find it to be very scary at all...

    Not the greatest horror film of all time, but certainly not the worst either. Worthwhile "found footage" or "mockumentary" if you're into that sort of thing. The bonus features are good too, and includes a full length documentary which inspired the film. (A lot of the same footage in both, but the documentary is just as chilling)
