Paranormal ……Stuff

I am not sure if this is part of a series or what but we recently viewed this docucumentry film about a group of filmmakers who go to Clophill Bedfordshire and try to look into the story of the haunted run down church that was used to practice Black Masss,witch craft Satan worship and other things that go bump in the night, you know like that song with Ozzy Osbourne. From the people who made the Zombie Diaries (not to be confused with Diary of the Living Dead by George Romero) comes Paranormal Diaries: Clophill a movie made by a England Paranormal ghost hunter Kevin Gates. Now I assume this is going to be part of a series of films. These are real paranormal investigators so this movie is more document than horror movie scare fest with found footage lazy film making. The movie comes from Image Entertainment and Pam and I watched it last night. Now hot on the heels of the worn out franchise Paranormal Activity we get another of these paranormal films. Here is a link to some video footage of the supposed caught on camera ghost or lens flare.

It seems like the only two kinds of Horror movies, demon or ghost movies. This is all we have seen from the Horror genre besides remakes over the last few years, we get a LOT of direct to dvd movies which should be put in theaters NATION WIDE, like The Only Lovers left alive, Maniac(yes a remake but a remake BELOVED by people), Kiss of the Damned, In Fear, and more. For every film like Sinister or The Conjuring that does well you get another crappy Paranormal Activity movie or The Devil Inside or Devils Due. I am getting board with every to do with it.

The first guest I ever interviewed for Radio of Horror back in October 2007 at the Rock and Shock Convention was on the behest of my wife Steve from Ghost Hunsters and it was the most boring interview ever one line answers and very little to say about the show it self. It was recently announced he was returning to the show on syfy channel.

If your really into this genre of filmmaking and love the Ghost Hunter shows then check it out, if you pick it up expecting a horror movie based on the cover its not a horror movie.

  1. I agree. Horror as a genre is thought of in too-narrow-terms as it is without the help of box office returns culling it even further.
