This is a claustrocore film, which means that, at some point, the protagonists end up locked up for however long the script needs them to be. It might also mean that they will die one after another. That’s for you to find out. The antagonist takes a while to manifest himself, and he’s first introduced through a bunch of infernal animations that didn’t turn out so well.
The film is indeed punctuated with poorly drawn animated sequences used to tell the past where we recognize Meg Foster’s piercing blue eyes. She’s a loss leader. She’s super intense. Her character has baggage. She looks depressed, and that adds weight to the ambiance of the first act. This movie is a paranormal procedural, and we get way more backstory than we can take in.
Investigation 13 will work for you if you’ll looking for difference over comfort. For such a small production, it’s surprisingly fleshed out. Now, “Investigation 13” sounds a lot like “Session 9”, a much better movie with a few things in common, namely the fact that they both take place in a haunted asylum. There are hints of ingenuity, here, but the film hits and misses.
