In my opinion, the actors all deserve a much better movie. The story is one that has been told many times, in a genre that's been done to death, and neither well. Sometimes a really good story with the right people at the helm can take the clichés, the predictable, the worn out and make them fresh and interesting, but '8989 Redstone' was not one of those projects or outcomes.
The basic premise,a home improvement show's attempts to film an episode in a house with a murky history, are undermined by paranormal events and stubborn disbelief. This of course leads to escalating bad, and some storyline details that I guess were meant to help tell the tale. However I just didn't get the point and was left wondering what and why. The movie tries to be scary and it has a few good moments with potential, but again the story's greater problems annihilate the possibilities.
Though I thought the acting was good and the characters believable and at times amusing, the storyline, its tie-ins, and finale, were really disappointing and worn out. I was left hoping for some epilogue scene after the credits that would make it somewhat worthwhile, but never got any such thing.
Maybe another reviewer can shine better light on the plot so that others may like this movie better, but as for me I would just say no and don't waste valuable time that one could spend on their own home maintenance and DIY improvements.
