If you seen one you seen them all!

Don't waste your time it's a slow burn for a short ride it's like staying at Disney world to get on a ride find out the ride sucks. Watch House bound it's a New Zealand film no blood no one dies but it's creepy and crazy as hell!

Third times the charm

Typical Paranormal Activity spooks. Of consumerism VHS, occult books and Teddy Rupxin.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
