Low budget "Scary Movie",
This review is from: Supernatural Activity (DVD)
As you can guess, this is a spoof movie. Its gotten a fair bit of flack from reviewers here, but to be honest, it was more entertaining to watch than quite a lot of those parody movies that flooded out after the success of "Scary Movie". This one is a very low budget, but does that mean it can't produce a laugh?
Unfortunately, they used the best gags in the trailer. Quite frankly, the Patrick Swayze jokes worked better in the trailer than it did in the movie. There is a couple of decent laughs here and there, but by the end of the movie, I wasn't even interested in ripping a copy.
The plot, if you wanna call it that, is about a guy who hosts his own spook investigating show. Along with him is his crew, who cares about introducing them. They take to a small town he does not want to go to, just because his girlfriend wants to find small-squatch or the gobbledock or something? I couldn't get the gist of if he was trying to prove it was fake or just wasn't interested, I didn't care to pay that much attention to care... but they end up experiencing things on a very low budget. It takes shots at Paranormal Activity, Rosmary's Baby & Blair Witch. Probably a few more movies, Like I said, I just didn't care to pay that much attention to it all.
It had a couple of laughs, so it makes it funnier than Epic Movie and that stupid Island one with Michael Jackson... but still, it's far from being as great as the real classic parody movies. VERY FAR. Put it this way, Scary Movie 5 was much funnier. And possibly even Haunted House or whatever that one the Wayans guy did. So, beware, this one might make you laugh if you watch it all, but if you turn it off in the first 10 mins, you won't be missing a must see laugh.
