Reviews:

“Scenes felt forced and genuine displays of emotion were uncommon. Whether this was a result of the written dialogue the cast had to work with or the cast performances remains unclear. That being said, I enjoyed watching Sarah’s friend Nick (Hunter Johnson). He provided charisma and brought much-needed life to the film.” Horror Buzz

“There’s several good jumps along with an air of menace throughout the film. Which lets Paranormal Attraction builds nicely to an energetic if somewhat familiar climax. That cast all do a good job […]  While a bit restrained compared to what I was expecting from the director, Paranormal Attraction is a well done Blumhouse style film.” Voices from the Balcony
