Editorial Reviews

EPISODE 50 focuses on two television crews of paranormal experts: one team of skeptics looking to de-bunk myths about ghosts and another consisting of believers looking to prove their existence. Teaming up for the first time for a special episode, the crews get more than they bargained for when they actually make contact with a spirit of tremendous power and must band together to stop it before it destroys them all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let my sacrifice mean something April 21, 2012
By Garret
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
In short, this is one of the most clumsily written, acted and directed movie I have ever seen. The plot could have been written for a young adult church group, which is not just to say that it has some sort of Christian message (that would not be an issue), but that it could only appeal to someone whose view of spirituality spins on the axis of American non-denominationalism. The result is a horror movie that fails in every respect with the added embarrassment of being preachy and generally idiotic.

Here, I'll spoil the story for you. A team of television ghost hunters are called by a man of extreme wealth who was released from prison (charges unmentioned) as he is due for his imminent death from pancreatic cancer. He also happens to be the owner of a closed asylum for the insane which is purported to be haunted by some vicious, murderous spirits. The deal is that they get one weekend with the asylum for their 50th episode (hence the name - see what they did?). Why? The man has lived a pretty horrendous life, as he says "I have broken every one of God's ten commandments". He wants to know if the asylum is haunted because if it is, that somehow means he will spend eternity burning in Hell. Enter our psuedo-anti-hero, a man of broken faith who runs the aforementioned group of television ghost hunters with his childhood friend, an annoying man of ambiguous Latin descent and the token pretty girl. The team is well established as using the powers of reason and observation to debunk spiritual encounters, so it seems the rich man is really hoping to clear his mind when they come back with a rational explanation for the hauntings. The catch to all of this is that they have to work with a team of rival, faith-based investigators... for some reason.

Not worth my time. Sadly this film used a great model, one that I've seen before and hope to see redone again, but it failed in all forms of delivery other than a few of the earliest introductory points. Episode 50 opens with what I consider an effective strategy. With hardly any background noise you are presented a taxonomy of paranormal activity increasingly ordered from least to most dangerous--naturally, you're saying to yourself, oh it's gonna' be the that last one. Already I'm reminded of movies like White Noise (2005), Poltergeist (1982), Paranormal Activity (2007-2011) and Insidious (2010).

Paranormal investigators recognize four classes of hauntings.
1. Residual--unaware of the living; no interaction or physical contact; not dangerous.
2. Intelligent--possible physical contact and interactions with objects and people; generally not dangerous.
3. Poltergeist--trickster spirits with objectives; deceiver; possible physical contact and interactions with objects and people; moderately dangerous.
4. Inhuman--a spirit that was never human; makes physical contact with objects and people for the purposes of possession, mental manipulation or bodily harm; extremely dangerous.

In the style of Grave Encounters (2011), The Devil Inside (2012) and The Last Exorcism (2010), our story within the movie is being filmed for TV show or documentarian purposes. It's presented much like an actual episode of the show. We are introduced to our team of skeptical paranormal investigators who are young, sharp, and are trying to comfort a couple that was hustled by a previous team of people. Hilarious sidebar: in some surveillance footage the husband, when spooked, hits his wife in the face with a hammer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hellllooooo, Nurse. February 28, 2013
This is most likely one of those movies that claimed it really happened.... pffft, yeah right.

To get an idea of what this movie is... think of it this way; take one of those stupid ghost hunter shows, and it suddenly gets cancelled because something bad happened in filming what has become the last episode they would ever do.

So these guys have a show just like it, and have done 49 episodes where they could explain everything they have investigated as natural occurrences, not paranormal activity. They then get asked to investigate a place that used to be a war hospital, then a lunatic asylum and it's built on a burial ground, yadda-yadda-yadda... so the team goes in and finds that they may not be able to debunk this one as just being faulty wiring and gusts of wind.

For a while it takes you on a bit of a cool ride, but it's interrupted too often by absolute BS and stupid dialog of things the audience couldn't care less about... like these guys childhood secret... oh, how grand the reveal of that was. It also went in a stupid Christian/Catholic direction at the end that really put me off the ending. If I wanted to see BS from bad actors who make crap up for film and then pray, i'd watch "Paranormal State" and see what fairy-tale they are filming up this week. In this movie, it killed the whole tone.

The only good thing about the ending I liked was that it took a different turn than most other films like this, and actually left the Asylum to track down another place where something else is happening. However, how that ended, the very end of it, .... sigh... way to kill a movie guys. I was going to give the movie 3 stars, but no, you just had to spoil it that way didn't you?
