The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill (2013)

As I continue to work on tweaking my fiction assignment for the week, I needed to find something to work as background clutter. While there are many flicks out there that would work, I definitely wanted something with some realism. In the end, I decided on the 2013 British flick, The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill.

Plot/ 50 years after an incident, the Clophill legend remains etched on the psyches of the local populace. In 2010, a documentary team was assembled to investigate the legend of the Clophill witches and to try to uncover the truth behind the paranormal events. What followed during that long weekend at Clophill was a terrifying journey into the unknown.

OK, I am a sucker for these found-footage mockumentary flicks. While this movie is not anything new or anything special, it does come across as something a touch more refined than most. Based on a real location that is full of mysterious history, there is a touch of realism added to the movie. Sure, there is little action and it plays more like an episode from one of the many paranormal shows, but there are at least some interesting moments that make me as an investigator smile. In the end, this one is definitely not for everyone. But, if you enjoy paranormal documentaries or television shows, give it a shot; you may like it.
