| Provoked: Expectedly awful
Provoked otherwise known as American Poltergeist (Not to be confused with the equally dire movie of the same name from the year before) this is also the 10th movie in the Paranormal Investigations franchise.

Yet another movie revolving around a ghost hunting team this particular one see's the team failing to come up with anything and frustration kicking in. Angering a spirit one of them seems to have brought it home with him and his girlfriend.

You probably can work out what happens next, paranormal nonsense but even then very little. Practically nothing happens and when it does it's incredibly ugly which raises the question where did the 1.5 million budget go? No, seriously. How can a movie with a budget like that, look like this?

With the ripoff cover art, weak acting, non-existent action and recycled script this is an absolute mess alike every other Paranormal Investigation franchise movie I've seen so far.

Dreadful stuff, incredibly making it found footage may have helped it.

The Good:


The Bad:

Hideous sfx

Really boring

How did this cost 1.5 million?
