Reel Evil (2012)
Okay young ones you know the drill so let me break this down quick. Hand held cameras - check. Night vision recording - check. Headache from shaky camera view - check. Nothing happens except shadows or a glimpse of something for an hour or so - check. Quick looks at 'spirits' popping out - check. People die (well, this is so cheap they mostly just disappear) - check. Everybody dies - check. Somebody obviously finds the film later - check. End.

The three documentary dudes (well, one's a woman 'cause DUH is not restricted to any sex, color or race) soon get bored with the shoot because - have you ever seen a movie shoot? I have. They take about five seconds and shoot it. And shoot it again. And again. And again. It's funny when you see a movie where they shoot a scene and move right on to the next one. THAT scene probably took a whole day.
So we get three very bored stooges wandering around the HUGE (and they're always huge - there are no medium or house sized asylums) place looking for something scary and finding - nothing. Of course if they actually looked at what they've filmed they'd see what we do - umm, nothing. Oh there's a creaking door or a shadow and even once some specter behind the cameraman for a second but. Sigh. Let's end this.
