The beginning of the movie didn’t grab me much, mostly because I thought that it was the same as a lot of other movies just like this. A group of people faking the ghosts, get money by making people believe they have gotten rid of the ghosts, and instead they end up being killed by a real ghost, but instead it isn’t the ghosts that people have to worry about, it is the real people.
When the sibling and their crew arrive at the old foster home they find the mother of the home to be off-putting and aggressive. Her son is a known murderer, having murdered several of the young girls she had taken into her foster home. He not only tortured the girls, but sewed their mouths shut, before killing them and placing them on display. The mother claims that the girls were the problem and that her son was the innocent victim, only doing what they forced him to do.
This movie wasn’t great, as there were some very slow moments that made the movie drag at times. But, there were also a lot of frights, and I got goosebumps several times as the creepiness of the movie built. There were some good moments that didn’t rely on jump scares, like most movies do these days, jump scares for ghosts.
The end of the movie moved a little too far into the grotesque, and it wasn’t needed as it was creepy enough. I feel like they might have added it so that there were some moments of torture to shock the audience. It was also incredibly sad as Angela realizes that her life is never going to be normal again.
Not a fantastic or great movie, but to watch it on streaming, it wasn’t bad. The time used to watch it was worth it for the end, and the revelation that sometimes things are not always what they seem, and sometimes people deserve to have the ghosts haunting them.
