I'm still trying to figure out what the real point of this foggy filter filmed movie that I feel I wasted 85 minutes of my time on the eve of Valentines with. I guess I need to stop over thinking and just succumb to the reality that the poster art says it all, "Do you choose faith or fear?"
For this 2007 Dave Sapp co-written & directed flop, "The Haunting Of Marsten Manor" the truth of the matter is as simple as that tag phrase. No real twists, not a damn scare or fright and a ton of poorly edited audio and visual goofs. Along with that, it seemed at the end of the film the production team was really trying to play the sequence off as a jaw dropping, awe inspiring turn of events that was supposed to leave viewers shocked.
Instead, I was irritated with the fact that the screenwriters might have tried to produce a "horror film" that was camouflaged as one of the hundreds of spiritual and paranormal movies out there with the main purpose of getting out some religious message that with faith in God you can overcome it all.
I'm not too keen on these types of films, hypocritical "sheep in wolves clothing" is what I call them and there is no room for these types of films on my shelf and replay value is zero. If I wanted to be taught about these types of things I would do so on my own free will, not being force fed by something that puts off the aura of a horror film. A shameful execution to say the least.
