I agree with him this is a stink bomb
7 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm borrowing your review because i agree with it i'm just putting some touches on it Here we are with yet another paranormal themed, straight to DVD horror film, this time presented with "The Poltergeist of Borley Forest" a mirco - budget, highly independent film finally to DVD ..

Before I say anything, I don't look / judge a horror film for it's budget, some low budget films have proved to be amazing, or perhaps effective. Sadly, this one her wasn't as effective as I hoped it to be. The plot / story of this film was clichéd. We've seen this millions of times, a wretched past comes back to haunt the present, sending said characters to confront in. This film just executes said clichéd plot once more, disappointing in a way. It also throws clichéd characters in the situation, of course, of which won't be spoiled. The execution of the clichéd plot, in this film wasn't the best either. Once again, we've seen it millions of times before, the execution could be new - like, and unique, or just flat. This, sadly was flat, adding another to the other films of which already passed the cliché. In conclusion, there's truly nothing special of the plot. It's been seen in numerous amounts of other horror films, this film, just adding to those.

Now, as said before, the characters were just thrown into this clichéd situation. Dose that mean the said characters acting was bad? No. Although the characters here are clichéd / slightly clichéd, I was pleasantly surprised by they're acting execution. For such a low budget in the film, the acting could of been much, much worse as seen in other micro - budget films. But pleasantly, this film proves other wise, execution great, solid actors. Also, for such clichéd characters, they had a good run for they're characters in the film, caring for the characters they stood for, and, as said before, solidly execution they're lines with great sympathy of which lead to a pleasant little experience. Like said before, the acting could of been horrible. But once again, in this film, it wasn't, and stood out quite well! Finally, for the cinematography, CGI [ There's some in the film ], and other studio work. This went 50 / 50 - like in my book. It can go either way, depending on who's watching it, and what they entirely expect as a horror fan. I personally have my up's and down's. While the cinematography was great, for such a low budget film, it was flawed. In specific scenes, the camera was placed in odd spots, of which the audience had a hard time of seeing where / what was going to happen. It also had times where it was being flung around, going all directions as if this was a found footage film, giving the audience a disorienting - like feel, and, or look. The CGI decision, of having barely any, in my opinion was fine. As I keep saying over, and over, for such a LOW budget, there's not much that can be done. The CGI / what it was used for was eh. Of course, it wasn't that great, but for the purpose; what it stood for was just fine. The audio, though, needs to be talked about. It's clichéd; period. Many of the audio throughout the film have been heard in multiple amounts of other films, and even horror themed video games. Half of them have been heard millions of times, distracting the audience of which knows where it's from. But either way. It held grip, and was what it was.

In conclusion. This film wasn't the best. BUT. It wasn't drop dead horrible like other micro - budget films. But on the other hand, the core of the movie, of which holds it all together fell flat, and was highly, highly clichéd. It also had budget flaws, ranging from camera work, to CGI. But never the less, the acting just barely saved it all, giving the audience some up rising confidence in the film succeeding. But in the end, this film fell flat, dragging on, and becoming quite boring; overall. It was solid.. but clichéd. Not TOTALLY worth buying on DVD or BLU-RAY or online for that matter. This is a stink bomb 1 STAR RATING
