The Crying Dead

0 of 5 viewers "Liked" "The Crying Dead" (2011, USA)
Here's what the citizens of the Overlook Theatre had to say:

Ice Giant - "Worst found footage ghost movie ever. The homage to the shining was more like an insult because it was in this shitty movie." - 1 Star

Book Wyrm - "This movie made me tired." - 0 Stars (Default 1)

Lord Battle - "This film is nothing but a cash grab. Not one scene is inspired let alone good, skip this film and watch "Grave Encounters". They couldn't even rag on Zak Bagans right!" - 1 Star

Brewha - "Another ghost hunting movie. Over done!!" - 1/2 Star (Default 1)

Huntress - "This movie was just a compilation of the worst parts of several good movies. Didn't need to happen." - 2 Stars

The Overlook Theatre Final Rating*
"The Crying Dead" is the worst film The Overlook Theatre has ever screened and I have to apologize for letting this one slip in. I picked this film because it appeared on a list of top 10 reality tv themed films. Why this film would make any list is beyond me; it was created to be confused with "Grave Encounters." With that said, there is really nothing else to say other than Zak Bagans from Ghost Adventures has been the target of many jokes and for good reason and this film somehow managed to fail at mocking him. Just like everything else in "The Crying Dead".
I guess I should say a little more... The film has a very very slow start and takes an incredibly long time to even reach the haunted location. The characters are the typical terrible horror movie characters that you hope end up dying in some super fantastic slow way, all because you somehow blame them for you  watching this truly awful film. Oh and the only ghosts in this film are on the movie poster above and all they do in the film is crawl around... 
Avoid at all costs.

*Based on the star ratings turned in by character reviewers, others viewed and got to "Dislike" or "Like" but that does not effect the rating.
