30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Originally written for Flickering Myth

Whoever wrote the synopsis for this film must be poking people’s eyes out with their huge nose as they were telling a big fat fib. Just looking at the box for more than 2 seconds would tell you everything you need to know. This ‘film’ is utterly awful.
The only thing that even remotely approached a positive was that it barely ran for 70 minutes. Even then I was checking my phone after 10 minutes.

For just over an hour I was subjected to what I can only describe as a series of sketches and set pieces. Even the worst comedy can generally elicit a smirk from me with a fart joke or boob gag, but here not even those stalwarts could stem the tide of utter tripe that was being presented. It was like that scene in Clerks 2 (if you know you’ll know). In addition, some of the ‘jokes’ were in bad taste. We are treated to the sights of a baby being plied with alcohol and Steve Job’s body being used as Apple product placement.

It is all so shoddily thrown together that it was completely joyless and a real chore to get through. The only bonus feature is a look behind the scenes. Writer/Director Craig Moss openly admits that the spoof genre isn’t an ‘in’ thing right now but doesn’t mind. He also seems to be fully aware of the thrown together nature of the film, which quite frankly is inexcusable. This guy supposedly grew up watching classic spoof movies, but he must have had his eyes closed as he has clearly not learnt anything. It’s as though he doesn’t care! So why should we?

It doesn’t even reference all of the films in the title. Even the Wayan Brothers manage that.
This is quite possibly the worst film I have ever seen.
