The Linda Vista Project: Were they even trying?
6 February 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

If a movie has multiple names it always loses credibility for me, this has quite a few.

Known as The Linda Vista Project, American Conjuring, The Hospital and American Poltergeist 3. The latter being the most interesting as there are two different franchises called American Poltergeist, both with multiple films and quite frankly it's hard to identify which fits into which.

It tells the story of a group of ghost hunters in the infamous Linda Vista building which you may already know was an insane asylum once upon a time. Needless to say spooky things happen, stuff gets out of control and cue credits.

Yes this exact storyline has been done dozens of times, in fact several have already been done in the Linda Vista building. What sets this marginally apart from the rest is that it isn't actually done in the found footage format like they usually are. Honestly however, that hasn't done it any favors at all.

Another thing it has is CGI and lots of it, generally you don't see that in these types of films. Instead of wonky shaky cam and furniture moving here we actually see the entities, but that really damages the film due to the incompetence of those responsible for the sfx.

But it's low budget you say? Correct, but it still had a full million under it's belt so it should have looked better than this. Instead it's all so very unforgivably ugly. Combine that with absolutely zero originality or character and you have a cookie cutter movie and a bad one at that.

The Good:

I love the Linda Vista building

Lead was above par

The Bad:

Religious nonsense

SFX are just plain ugly

Annoying needless flashes

Stock sound effects and screams
