Too much was in recent movies, mostly fiction, where a group of enthusiasts is trying to prove to myself the existence of evil in shower dead is much more dangerous inhabitants of Hell — demons. "Episode 50" a carbon copy  of"grave encounters", but here at this time, alas, does not left the advantages for which to compliment a new project.

The billionaire son of one of the richest people in America, sends a few guys with TV, participants of the reality show with a search of the supernatural forces in an abandoned mental hospital, because it to old and mind deadly disease just itch. He explains that for my violent life tried a lot of things forbidden, and now it's time to pay, so cancer makes up again, but it necessarily most certainly need to explore whether there are in the most paranormal place in the country any bad essence, because then he will understand and reach to Hell or Heaven. Not once you understand what the billionaire wants — whether it boasts the dubious "achievements" of his youth, then do complains of symptoms of the disease, so that only then comes, why he is sent participants on a special mission. It turns out that rich people also interested in life after death and their place in it. But when the kids arrive at the destination, the destination learn that work will, together with another group with a television — their sworn rivals. Fear unites them all in the face of such unknown phenomena, "Dating" which is fraught with death...

We see the whole film? Endless attempts by TV to explain what he saw, to unravel the mystery of a spooky place them meeting with paranormal already in the last thirty minutes of dynamic interchange, which inevitably get tired of waiting. Nothing new "Episode 50" is not surprised. Very predictable work: how low-end it is possible to predict with zero times if seen at least two to three films of a similar genre. For stay in the mental hospital guys and girls that was arguing, it figured that captured camera — in General, talking myself in joy. The error also the creators of another mocumentary in that the story was too some saturated legwork and walking; not there were smooth transitions in the installation, everything seemed to be torn, and most of the episodes just once. The main effect would fit in half an hour, well maybe forty minutes, and this creates the impression that between important to the story scenes are not was inserted something more adequate than someone's a little story about that, they say, "how do I got TV" or "I eight years heard the first Ghost." I realize be the case in reality, the fiftieth release program was probably such same uneven editing, but to make interesting original mockumentary film, to thinking.

So skipping all that was to the final (for it is a solid "water"), I will say that the ending was absolutely not afraid, though hopeless. Very corny to be inserted into the plot is even and matters of faith: too worn out topic, enough to speculate religious troubles. In the result, the predictability increased to beaten in the horror genre cliche. From the writers ran out of imagination.

At first when you are viewing me seemed film be at least medium its direction, but as usual start for health — come peace.

One of my mate loves to cook salad. It opens the fridge and takes out all what can you, small cuts, shuffles, and fills the greasy mayonnaise. It dash Smelly... And he doing horror movies.

You can read it for "Tully" (never heard), "Immortal Island" (what's this?) and... Well and General all.

That's only for interesting is quite a trivial story about ghosts. Or about demons? Hmm, is not remember. The heroes of the film all this time (last 40 minutes) trying to deal with whom they are dealing with. Must say, the guys try hard all the time somewhere to run, and, in the end, even the main villain. It is a pity that I not able to build that the chain of logic by they were in their conjectures and reasoning. Probably not looked carefully, but honestly, there was a feeling that the middle pulled out a long piece of film in 20 minutes.

All this story presented to the viewer is very unusual. The impression is that the Director started shooting the film, but and decided to yourself to end, it should look like. Not like camera work. First shot of the usual static camera, a minute later already trembling Amateur camera in the hands of one of heroes of the operators, the number of which I and could not be determined. Then he is one, then they have three. In General, I made for a conclusion, and the script is not was designed to end the film crew had to improvise right around the time of filming. At all it should be noted that the film has several creepy moments.

Although I must admit, I he made a mistake. I watched a movie in the afternoon, with curtained Windows. The effect is not that viewing night. Maybe that's this gave the film such a low rating. But in any case, episode 51 Joe Small I'm not wait will.

A year ago there was a movie like this under the name "grave encounters", which in the first attracted the attention of the story: some paranormal investigators go to an abandoned psychiatric hospital to make sure or the absence of ghosts. The film "Episode 50" is virtually identical to the plot of the story. The only difference — a line of events that from strong belief in ghosts ranges from to the believers of the ungodly.

This film tells the story of a group of people who all wanted to do the shoot in an abandoned hospital, where they for a long time not allowed, as long as this "pass" them has not provided the rich man who decided to the finale of life to know that it can wait for after death. It should be noted that the characters are shown only in appearance, and their life, conduct and character should be recognized only in fact viewing. For example, we almost do not understand why one of the characters, so sought to prove that Ghost — this is a myth, but believe paranormal — nonsense all can be explained logically.

In the film there is nothing complicated. History does not is of secondary branches therefore consists of a simple puzzles and not less than simple solutions here. Therefore, to learn the history of the hospital, had just-just look through the file Cabinet, here to only not from all thought for some reason.

You should pay attention to something who consist of a team of believers and atheists: it is a few leading persons and their Directors, which was not be sure to hide as they were at the same time the creators of the film. It is worth to say a big thank you to those that the shooting was not only real, but and quality.

Of the latter, that can be called positive, I liked the absence of unnecessary dialogue and stupid jokes, with which often start the movies like the story.

On the other hand, the only thing that can you to scare, it is the shadows of ghosts, of which only two or three appear more or less clearly. Of the horror himself the film goes under the end the realm of fantasy, where the heroes have to close some portals appear horned demons...

Did not like very much how the events unfolded. For the most part, in this film, if you look carefully, you can see the more "theory" than"practice". Because almost the entire movie going narrative of the different kinds of ghosts, and here action was trying to do for the last 20 minutes, when events unfold so rapidly that the logic understand this is not keep up with them.

In General overall, the movie could would be quite good. It is possible that he would go even "the Searchers graves". But for me it turned out to be too passive and neutral, and identifying the minuses just ruined everything experience:
