The Poltergeist Of Borley Forest (2013/Image DVD)

It follows you home, it will drag you to hell.

Stephen McKendree's The Poltergeist of Borley Forest (2013) mixes the genres of slasher and ghost thriller together to get a mix of what feels a little Halloween and a little Paranormal Activity. What the film is missing is some scares. Relying on a weak cast of newbies and production value that is at some points stronger than other points, the film ends up being just another direct to video hashing of the horror genre. The plot feels a little too familiar and ultimately hinders on some of the scares of the film.

On a night of carefree teenage partying in the woods, Paige Pritchard unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that will plunge her into a waking nightmare. Tormented by terrifying and increasingly violent supernatural visitations, Paige starts digging into the past and uncovers a sinister secret, buried for decades. Behind the deadly force that now haunts her is a malevolent entity of unspeakable evil. As its power grows and her friends fall prey to its savagery, can she - or anyone - stop The Poltergeist of Borley Forest?

Presented in standard definition with a 1.78 X 1 anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy English 5.1 Dolby Digital track, the film looks fine for DVD but could obviously benefit from a high definition upgrade. Extras include The Manifestation of the Poltergeist: Behind The Scenes, Deleted Scenes, and Outtakes from Borley Forest.
