Paranormal review | Thunderbolt

Shane Ryan, Thunderbolt writes:
I’m sick and tired of the found footage genre of horror films. They’re the lowest common denominator. Effortless, worthless piles of quickly forgotten trash that serve to make quick money (buy less, sell high!) returns in the most cynical possible manner, and that only serve to reconfirm the myth that horror films are without merit, have nothing to say and are lacking in imagination. Which is the complete opposite of the truth for what they once meant. As reactions to culture and social pressures, albeit with some directors and producers looking for quick returns themselves as exploitation cinema exploded, they had something to say whether in style or substance, even with the lashings of fake blood and soft smut. Paranormal takes influence from this new breed of cinema cynicism and looks to do something new with an already tired format. (Paranormal, PC) 3/10
