Let down
Verified purchase
I liked Toby Wynn Davies as Harry Price, I think he had the right sort of demeanour for a ghost hunter in an historical drama like this one. He has a passing resemblance to the real Harry Price as well which helped. The creepy location was bang on and the costumes had a realistic look.
So what was wrong with it....pretty much everything else. As it went along the star rating I felt I could give it was just falling away scene by scene. The supposedly cut glass English accents were dismal - truly the worst I've heard. Reece Putinas as Mark, and Louisa Warren as Helen as Harry's apprentices were particulary at fault - I wanted to really like Louisa's performances because actresses who are obese are so often given paultry parts which they don't deserve because if you don't have an incredible figure (or in the case of men - a six pack) then you have to have some well above average talent. In thais case Warren really didn't have any talent that I could see, along with the rest of the cast who's performances were frankly forgettable.
I was really looking forward to this film and kept it back for a rare afternoon to myself, but I have to say I feel really let down as this film was at best mediocre.

Terrible

Sketchy script, laughable at times, strange pauses. Terrible CGI, about as scary as watching paint dry. Rubbish.

Complete waste of money!
Verified purchase
Biggest load of rubbish I've ever seen. What started out good gradually slid into utter tosh. No story to it, a dodgy nun with no eyes that kept appearing every now and again and people coming and going to the rectory, why? what were they doing? Very second rate B movie stuff. Waste of the £3.99 I spent on it!

Seriously? People are actually paying money to watch this garbage.

Costumes are great as is the location. So why the downbeat review? Well, everything else from casting through to the editing and release. I honestly never thought that I'd see such poor acting outside of the porn industry. Why can't I select Zero stars as there weren't any in the 35 minutes that I suffered. Shame on you Amazon for putting this up!

Utter rubbish…
Verified purchase
I had high hopes for this, and was lured in by some familiar names, as well as the fact that that Borley Rectory had a reputation for being the most haunted house in Britain. However, it didn’t take long before I realised my expectations had been set far too high.
It’s not the fact that this is a low budget film, it’s more down to the bad direction, script, and some really bad acting. The more well known actors seem to really struggle too, so I’m not sure went wrong here.
As for the story, it’s quite disjointed, and there’s no depth to it whatsoever. As for character development, forget it, in fact it’s probably best they never even tried.
This was so bad, it was funny, and that’s the only reason I made it to the end of he film.

Words fails me ...

....hang on , no they don't...my TV's pixels loitered on the side of the set, too excruciatingly terrified to have the audacity to show me the next set of waxwork robots hamming up each scene. I was on the edge of my seat scared witless that I wouldn't be able to find the channel changer in time to witness the horror before me, I can only imagine the out of retirement Z Listers the agents had the cheek to ring up and suggest participance were adequately compensated when the sausage roll trolley turned up between takes ...if the er...ghost or...er whoever hadn't scoffed the lot...fond memories of Oscar worthy ( in comparison) amateur companies ..oh dear

More Budget Doesn't Make a Better Film
Verified purchase
After the success of the first Borley Rectory film, I was eagerly waiting to watch this film. What an huge disapointment. Unlike the based on facts but made on a budget predeccesso ;, making a highly imaginative and spookily, creative gem. This died a death wrapped around ever Hollywood cliche that is possible to process in one peice of writing. Turgid script, trite renderings of evil nun a plenty - always evil these days (yawn) . Where was all that original spark from his first Borley outing? The actors did their job but it must have been laborious work for them all. It just goes to show more budget doesn't make a better film.

Spooky "Could be better"
Verified purchase
I recently watched a different version on Borely Rectory so thought I would watch this version too, The other version was better but what you have to remember is that no matter what version you watch everything is supposed to be true as Borely Rectory did exist and apparently the land where it once stood there is the occasional sightings of figures. Friendly ones.
