Struggling filmmakers - Kennedy, Cory and James - finally catch the break they were looking for when they are hired to shoot a 'behind-the-scenes' documentary for a major studio production. But their dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when they explore the legendary, haunted location and find something far worse than anything Hollywood could create. Terror becomes reality for the filmmakers as they uncover the malevolent secrets of the hospital, and the sinister doctor who once ran it. Trapped inside the hospital with no apparent way out, our crew is tormented by the evil, unspeakable fear.

I know another "found footage" movie right? Right but... somehow this one is different. When you talk about found footage we all think Blair Witch and how it makes you sick watching it. Well it's all that motion sickness you get from watching the jerky camera. Reel Evil finds fun and clever ways to address this issue. Sure they have the shaking going on but in a very minimal way.  When you have a strong plot and a good cast a movie like this is easy to watch. 

Sure its a bit of a slow burn but once they break off into the asylum it gets going pretty good. The eerie atmosphere draws you in and keeps you guessing all the way through. Danny Draven shines with this movie. Everything works the sound, editing and cast are all perfect and fit in well. It has noting new to offer but is every much worth your time this Halloween season. 

If your your into ghost's and things that bump in the night this movie is for you!
