Day 4 | American Ghost Hunter (2015)
At least, I was led to believe this was horror…but I’m gonna go ahead and say that it’s not and I’m kind of sad I bothered to watch it. I thought it was going to be “American gothic,” (the cover looked promising, a little like The Conjuring, but it wasn’t). The cross is there for a reason. It winds up just being a “oh, we should all just accept Jesus and it’ll probably make us happier” kind of thing.
It almost had something going for it at the beginning, when it was talking about the Villisca Axe Murders, which took place in 1912 in a city not too far away from the main character’s/main peoples’ house in Persia, Iowa. That and the fact that Lorraine (of “Ed and Lorraine Warren” fame, as made popular by movies like the Amityville Horror and the Conjuring) made an appearance in the film. Honestly, just read up about the Villisca Axe Murders and call it a day (or night).
