A Haunting at Silver Falls - Review - @BrandonCSites / #SilverFalls / #Horror

A Haunting at Silver Falls (2013) **
D: Brett Donowho
C: Alix Elizabeth Gitter, James Cavlo, Tara Westwood, Steve Bacic, Erick Avari, James C. Burns, Tadhg Kelly, James Ralph, Jade Ramsey, Nikita Ramsey 
P: A teenager who has been uprooted to a small town after the death of her father is haunted by twin ghosts and must solve the mystery surrounding their death.

Yet another supernatural thriller deceivingly marketed as being in the same vein as The Ring. This one seems to take forever to get going. Once it does, it's just another predictable mystery that would have been better suited as a TV movie of the week. 

It's better acted then most. Gitter, in her film debut, brings a solid foundation to the film. Cavlo steals scenes and really pops on screen. He's obviously got a bright future ahead of him. As for the rest of the cast, they all turn in competent performances. Performances that are quite frankly better then what the film deserves. There's also some picturesque scenery and some attempts at character development.

All in all, A Haunting at Silver Falls is an OK film, the type of film you watch once and then instantly forget about. Nothing about it makes it unique or stand out. You'll see it in Redbox machines for a little while and then it'll just disappear with all the other supernatural clones that have been hitting the market ever since Paranormal Activity re-energized the sub genre. [Not Rated] 96 mins.  --- AKA: Silver Falls
