This relatively unique and chilling film uses the often overused fake documentary narrative to tell a spooky story.

Audience Reviews for 8213: Gacy House

In a moment of pure boredom I checked out this flick. It's one of the "found footage" direct to disc flicks that tried to cash in on the sub genre and it just doesn't work. A lot of the movie is pointless and jumps around too much not giving us time to care about any of the characters. The acting is bad and the story is worse. Forced nudity at the climax of the movie puts it over the top.
There are a couple scenes where the scares work but it's not enough to recommend anyone seeing this movie.

Serial killers fascinate me. John Wayne Gacy most definitely at the top of my interest list since I don't live far from where it all happened, and I remember it well. I thought that this movie was rather entertaining, and fun. The mere idea behind the fictional events in this movie were enough to creep me out! I just had to experience this with them...and now I am most definitely going to have bad dreams.

Camcorder or "found footage" films are inherently lazy, but they're cheap to make, so a lot of filmmakers are making them in the hopes that they will be the next Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity. 8213: Gacy House is one of these films and at first glance it looks like it's got everything it needs to be a winner. A serial killer, the paranormal, and a young good looking cast are usually the recipe for a very successful movie, but not here. I don't care much for these types of films to begin with, the acting is usually shitty and the constant movement of the camera makes me nauseous, but those aren't the only reasons to dislike 8213. The story makes no sense whatsoever and before making something like this, you'd think the director would have watched at least a couple episodes of Ghost Hunters. What kind of paranormal investigator goes ghost hunting with a half dozen people and then leaves the lights on!? Besides that huge flaw in the film, they're always saying they can feel something, with no evidence or hint that there's anything wrong, and when they do feel something, that's usually when nothing happens! The acting is awful, the cinematography is nauseating, the story is ridiculously stupid, and the special effects are complete garbage. The bottom line, 8213: Gacy House is a waste of a rental.

Ridiculous and horrible. This is nothing like the paranormal activity franchise although it tries to be. Not scary, but laughable.
