Paranormal Asylum (2013)

Paranormal flicks are always the rage around this time of the year. Of course, being in the field investigating a haunted location would be even better. Because this is such a popular time for supernatural or paranormal related items, there are times where you pick stuff against your better judgment. Was that the case with Paranormal Asylum: The Revenge of Typhoid Mary? Read on to find out!

Plot/ Nearly 100 years after Mary Malone was committed to a NY insane asylum for spreading Typhoid Fever, a pair of aspiring documentary filmmakers visits the abandoned sanatorium where she perished in isolation, and learns that her legend lives on.

The Halloween season always points me to movies I would not usually grab, and this was one of them. Usually, I am pretty generous to no-budget flicks, as I understand that there are inherent problems that come along with a limited budget. Unfortunately, there are times where absolutely nothing works and even the conceptual ideas are not groundbreaking. That was the case with this one, as it suffered through major plot issues and scripting, poor acting, no characterization, pacing problems, and cinematography issues throughout. Yes, there was a positive as the sound quality was not that bad, but that did nothing to help it in the end. Stay away!
