” …there are some very brief moments of unintentional humor that might make you think for a few seconds here and there that they actually set about to make a parody instead of a rip-off. These instances of almost sublime stupidity are all there is to break up the unremitting boredom…’ Dread Central

‘Asylum, the people behind Paranormal Entity, are most famous for what they do, rather than the movies they actually produce. They tend to take well-established names and churn out movies with similarities (as well as very close titles). Their business method is shady if smart… it’s an attempt to confuse consumers into getting their product instead of the “real deal”. Marcus’s Movie Life
