Audience Reviews for Greystone Park
Dull, plodding horror loaded with annoying characters and the only pedigree is that it's from the son of Oliver Stone, which is no longer a selling point for me. Pass.
Greystone Park (Sean Stone, 2012) Ho hum, another x-jumps-per-minte shakycam haunted-house tale supposedly based on a true story. They heark back to the whole "we'll use the actors' real names to give this a semblance of verity" from The Blair Witch Project, which is roughly the most interesting thing about it. I admit that part of me's interested to find out which parts of this are true (I suspect it's the bits that frame the actual picture of the sitting-around-and-telling-ghost-stories variety), but not enough to actually go and do the research; this is just another case of a movie using the "based on a true story" shtick to try and sell some tickets (or, in this case, rentals). If you've seen every other shakycam horror film in existence and need just one more, this will fill the bill. Otherwise, avoidable. *
I love found footage films, even bad ones are usually fun, but this may be the exception. Most of the effects were sounds, weird camera angles, intentional out of focus, and odd lighting edited very fast. I can live with that, it was kind of interesting (dizzying, but interesting). The biggest flaw was lack of commitment. When the film ended, I still wasn't sure if it was a ghost film, demon film, or escaped/brought back lunatic film. The confusion was distracting and made for a less than satisfying film
