The Crying Dead ★★

This low budget film took something like 2 years to get here. It's finally getting a release in September but now that so many similar films have come and gone, this independent offering shouldn't have bothered. It's not a particularly bad movie, it's just been done before most recently by another Found Footage flick, Grave Encounters. That movie in itself was also quite derivative but offered a lot of fun scares and creepy atmosphere. The Whispering Dead offers a little variation but not enough to actually distinguish itself. Still, it's a lot better than the abysmal sequel Grave Encounters 2 and both it and the Grave Encounters franchise are infinitely better than those godawful Ghost Encounters or Ghost Hunters TV Shows which they parody.
