8213: Gacy House is best described in one maybe two sentences. So here I go. A group of paranormal investigators go into John Wayne Gacy's house and call him back to this world. Then they do their investigation and nothing happens till the last 20 minutes of the movie. By then you are asleep, that or you are this instead insulted, brain dead and or lobotomized by the worst horror film ever to be made.
I wish I was kidding sadly it is not a joke. This movie was horrible beyond many reasonable means. There is no story. The characters are as paper thin as single ply toilet paper and there is sense of suspense or horror in this movie what so ever. It is a play on The Blair Witch project and it is evident. But where they movie played on your senses this movie doesn't do that. Instead it focuses on whining and complaining of the cast.
It is almost as if they each where told here is the concept. Now why don't you all get together and come up with a ad libbed script while we shoot it. We will go on what you give us. Sadly that is not the case as this movie is written and directed by Anthony Fankhauser who also gave us such horrible movies like. MILF, Mega Shark vs Octopus and 2012: Supernova.
With a resume like this what else can you expect other than a horrible movie. It is just inevitable and he does not disappoint. It is just that this is not a movie nor is it really anything anyone should ever watch. As it is the worst rip of Blair Witch and or Paranormal Activity out there. Now if you must see this be warned of this. This will insult, hurt and possibly put you to sleep.
It might even cause you drool out of boredom or because your brain can not handle the stupidity of this movie. So if you must watch this bring a bib and a drool bucket. Because after your are done with this horrible movie you will be closer to dead than alive and I know I lost a good few years of my life not from fright but from horrid movie making while watching this movie.
My Rating: Negative -5 out 5 Stars
