Review for The Atticus Institute

Author: tiailds

I was not sure what to expect before watching this. I now understand why this is shown on cable more than most POV horror out these days. "Was it interesting?" For the most part. Framing it as a legitimate documentary helped it. The dated setting, lack of technology, and inability to see the characters away from the action hurt it some. 2 out of 3 "Was it entertaining?" That is it's biggest problem. Little drama beyond emotional storytelling and only a few real good paranormal scenes. 1 out of 3 "Was it memorable?" The form of the movie was, but otherwise didn't make too much of an impact. It mostly just tries to stand out among it's sub-genre. 1.5 out of 3 Start with 1, 1+2+1+1.5=5.5 I'm rounding up for just using decent actors and good editing. A 6 with these type of movies is definitely above average.
