With a title that is neither inspired or inspiring, "Paranormal Asylum: The Revenge of Typhoid Mary" sets expectations low for itself. The partially found footage horror film, following two men making a documentary about an asylum, pulls off quite a feat, then, by actually being worse than its title.
A catalog of bad cinematic choices, the film provides amateurish performances, editing, and dialogue. Its story is composed of unoriginal beats, dragging and lurching along for the film's run time. The entire feature, obviously limited in resources and professional talent, is dull and nearly unwatchable.
Underneath its lack of quality, the filmmakers seem to be trying hard to accomplish something, and one or two moments might actually work. Overall, however, there is far too much laughably wrong with the film to find any postives.
