Amateurish across the board

While Paranormal Asylum benefits from a wonderful concept, that of searching for the true story of Typhoid Mary, it suffers from three major problems.

1 - a ridiculous back story of the film maker trying to get out from under his girlfriend's family.

2 - filming quality that, while the coloring is lovely, it looks either like a college graduation film or a commercial for local TV.

3 - terrible acting. Across the board, terrible acting. No one in this film was even Disney level quality. While good looking and in great shape, while they had nice hair even, the range of their dramatic skills covered the gamut from a to b.

On the positive side - when the film sticks to the found footage genre (which I love!) it is above average. Unfortunately, it only uses found footage techniques for about 15-20 minutes total. This is unfortunate, because the tricks used in those scenes are excellent.

Ultimately, I was left dissatisfied with the movie, knowing that it could have been so much more which is a shame, because I enjoy most found footage movies. I give it a 3 for the few minutes of found footage techniques and the twists employed therein.

Could have been so much more

I wanted this to be so good. The concept was good and it's a subject that should be explored and played with.

Why was there an Instagram-ish filter on it? It had a black cloudy filter that made me feel like my eyesight was clouded. Very uncomfortable.

Acting wasn't very good but some scenes were filmed beautifully.

I think there was a mistake too. When Mark met Evelyn she said she had some files he could look at if he didn't mind a dirty basement. Then when they were down there, she said "I'll be downstairs" as if they were in the attic.

The effects were super cheesy. The cutting-out static effect they put on things was kind of lame.

Practically Unanimous Opinions

After an unsuccessful experience as screenplay writer, Mark (Aaron Mathias) comes from Los Angeles to New York invited by his former college friend Andy (Nathan Spiteri). Andy lives with his girlfriend Michelle (Laura Gilreath) and the aspiring filmmaker expect to make a documentary about a patient of an abandoned hospital called Typhoid Mary. They investigate her case and interview people connected to her expecting to find the truth about the internee. Soon they discover that Mary was an outcast daughter and probably a guinea pig in the asylum where her father interned her. When Michelle performs a séance, she is possessed the spirit of Mary. Meanwhile Mark learns that Michelle, Andy and his life are in danger.

"Paranormal Asylum: The Revenge of Typhoid Mary" is an awful horror movie with a messy screenplay, terrible action and laughable dialogues and situations. This is one of the few movies that has practically unanimous opinions about. My vote is one.

Title (Brazil): "Atividade Sobrenatural: A Vingança de Mery" ("Supernatural Activity: The Revenge of Mery")
