Haunted (2017)
American Poltergeist is one of those dodgy franchises, as if people are making their own films with their own titles then some agreement is made to have American Poltergeist tagged on to add some kind of credibility. None of the movies are made by the same people, they have absolutely no connection to one another and it's hard for that reason to even call it a franchise.

Regardless this is the 7th (And hopefully last) such movie, is Spanish made and despite the low rating it's actually one of the better ones.

While his sister is away a man is tasked with house sitting and taking care of her cats. It doesn't take long however before strange things begin to happen and he begins to question whether he's truly alone.

Essentially another haunting/demonic tale it struggles to find a tone, it's a horror movie yet our two leads are both oddly comedic which just didn't sit right with me. The structure of the movie is also terrible, confusing and and make no mistake the cover art has absolutely nothing to do with the film whatsoever (That nonsense needs to stop).

However it does have things going for it, for example the sfx are excellent. You simply don't expect that from a movie of this ilk but everything looked great, both the practical and CGI. That was a pleasant surprise and helped the movie no end.

If the movie had been put together a bit better this might have been quite a pleasant surprise. Sadly it's flaws overwhelm the film and leave it a shell of what it could have been.

Despite this it's a lot better than you'd expect if you've watched any of the previous American Poltergeist movies.

The Good:

Great sfx

A couple of passable ideas

The Bad:

Poor audio balancing in places

Characters are too comedic to take seriously

Dishonest cover art

Doesn't flow very well
There were moments edge-of-your-seat dread and anticipation in this film. Some of the spirits were genuinely intimidating and horrifying, despite the haunting & possession themes being highly familiar territory for viewers. I really don't understand why some viewers would watch a foreign film, then complain about the actors having accents or "bad English". Gradual escalation of tension and convincing performances emphasizing progressive loss of composure by several actors in the film. The concerned mother, the serious and focused professor were also good. A blockbuster with a Hollywood effects team and budget behind it? No - but a very good film and recommended.
This is one of the worst so called movies. Nothing but a collection of utter garbage scenes and actors who can barely say their lines. Enough fake reviews. Don't waste you time on it.
Everything about this movie was awful. The actors and actresses, the manuscript and everything about it. I recommend everyone to do something more useful of the time than watching this movie. It is just a waste of time and electricity.

I feel betrayed. When I rented this movie is was a 6.0 at the IMDB but after fuve minutes I thought WTF! Overall it is very very very bad. The actors are over acting and ieeeew the girl has a voice that is so terrible! Did I mention the bad acting? This will be my last rented movie at the cable company. Very very very bad movie.
HAUNTED is an example of your usual generic indie haunted house horror film, this time made in Italy. The main character, who is played by an unusually wooden actor dubbed very badly into English in the export version, agrees to housesit for his sister, but on arrival finds himself plagued by a malignant entity. The film as a whole alternates between silliness and extreme boredom.
A young writer looks after his sister's house, while she take her young son out of town. Haunted may use some overused formula, but at least it keeps you busy all the time, not only with a spooky scene, but also with some funny moments. In the end, I've seen much worse. Also it's kind of a good refrest from everday hollywood horror films.
Waste of money, very bad english, no story, amateurs.
