30 Nights of Paranormal Activity With the Devil Inside The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2012)
In addition to horror, I enjoy comedies. When the two are combined, I'm usually quite interested in seeing the result. Other times, I just wind up wanting to drink the memory away...
Shortly after moving into the house where her father killed several people (and a dog), Dana and her husband begin to experience supernatural events that will ultimately lead to a confrontation between the family and evil...
"30 Nights of Paranormal Activity With the Devil Inside the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is a parody of horror movies. Unfortunately, I think the actual concept of a parody has been destroyed by the "Scary Movie" franchise. It used to mean poking fun at movies, while still respecting the source material... and having a coherent, strong storyline and characters. Now, it means sticking random vignettes based on popular films together in a sequence that kinda simulates a story.
The ACTUAL premise- as stated above could've provided a good starting point for horror or comedy- or a decent blend of both. The storyline used is shoddy, slapdash, and idiotic. many of the jokes are crude, simply not funny. Any laughs that occur tend to be caused by disbelief in how stupid the joke is.
I didn't like any of the characters or acting. At all.
Let's face it, I did not like this movie. Period. End of review. "30 Nights of Paranormal Activity With the Devil Inside the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is condemned to sit and rot in The Ugly.
