- Haunting of Cellblock 11 review by ML
Why has this film got four stars on this site? It has considerably less everywhere else there is a review.
So bad it's almost unwatchable. Every single horror cliche is explored by sub-standard actors from inexplicably malfunctioning cameras capturing something to yokels warning the incomers "to stay away from that place, it's bad news!" The special effects are bad, the script is untenable, and while the two leads are passable every other actor is, at best, not getting the "support" they need from the director.
It's 85 minutes long counting the enormous introductory credit sequence and the actual ghost hunt doesn't begin until the forty minutes mark. There is about 36 minutes of actual action and most of that is the anchor of the fictional tv show around which the film is based saying "is anyone there?!" for the camera.
Bad, bad, avoid.
