Paranormal Asylum: The Revenge of Typhoid Mary

Recommended Posts

Oh man, you guys, I just found Netflix gold. Paranormal Asylum: The Revenge of Typhoid Mary is definitely worth 89 minutes of your life, if only because one of the main characters has obviously subscribed to the Tommy Wiseau school of acting (and vague Eastern European accents). Directed by someone named Nimrod, it's the story of a guy who believes in ghosts...sometimes? but not seances, his friend who doesn't believe in ghosts until about five minutes in, and a bitchy girlfriend, making a documentary about the abandoned hospital that housed Typhoid Mary (who was apparently a sex slave?).

 

They spend so much of the movie setting up where all the documentary's cameras are--dozens of them--and yet it is not a found footage movie: there are tons of non-POV shots. Oh guys, I won't ruin any more of it for you. Just...awesomely bad writing, delivery, special effects...this has it all.

Yeah, I mean, I can understand wanting to bank on the success of Paranormal Activity, but "Asylum" isn't really a name you want to associate your low budget horror flick with.

I'm just astonished this wasn't from the Asylum. Although I think even the Asylum wouldn't want people to know that they were involved in a movie's production.

Speaking of Tommy Wiseau if you goto imdb and click on tommys name..

 

You'll find this little gem..

 

Stars: Mindy Robinson, Bai Ling, Tommy Wiseau, Eddie Deezen, Lexi Belle a porn star.

 

 

This movie has a kickstarter that is only trying to raise $50k and a cast that is basically the two original "stars" and then like 5 pornstars, one of whom said in her interview "we don't know if my character is good or bad yet." Normally I would say that is a bad sign, but hopefully they continue to not put any real effort into this whatsoever because otherwise it won't be a true sequel.

 

 

As for PATROTM, that also looks pretty bad

What does it say that the porn star might be the best actor in the bunch?
