True story spoiled by lack of actual footage
23 January 2005 | by The GryphonSee all my reviews

Good premise has a paranormal TV-series investigating a poltergeist/haunting in Kansas. This is based on a true story (as featured in the series "Sightings") but comes off a dull and limp. Perhaps some actual footage from the series itself would've spiced things up a bit. It appears earnest at times but never believable. Worse of all is the POV shots from the "spirits" in the house, which feature distorted fish-eyed lens and creepy sounds. Not really scary at all, which is a real shame but at least it manages to hold your interest a little bit. The set up is really a good one but lack of actual footage is a nagging hindrance.
