I really seem to be getting into this habit of going to see spinoffs of horror franchises with which I'm entirely unfamiliar. I think that the first was that "Ouija" prequel, a lovely period piece. The previous one I saw was something with a doll. And I just watched the new "Insidious" film, which is apparently the midpoint between the first film and the prequel to the main series.
But I'm realising that I'm rather glad for the existence of big, supernatural horror franchises. I don't generally go to see them when anything I really like is on, but the mere fact of their openly ghostly existence sweetens my soul.
The movie gave me some skewed reminiscence of "Ghostbusters". Those guys were scientists who dressed like exterminators. The equivalents in this dressed like office workers and acted like office workers who've been trying to organise a jam band after work for the last few months.
Keaton vs Poindexter! Battle of the Busters!
I'm giving it to Keaton. He seems more acrobatic. Flippy stuff.
