Michael W If you're a fan of low budget films, this is a must see. The Attic Expeditions is one of very few movies that kept me guessing the entire time. Right when you think you've got it figured out, BAM! Plot twist. Solid performance by the cast but Seth Green's dialogue on healthy paranoia is one of my favorite movie moments of all times!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review justin t I liked it. It was a little bit confusing but that is what is expected when you explore an insane mind. The story makes very little sense and the ending doesn't really shed much light on the matter. I think that I liked it because it scared my senses and challenged my mind. I would hate to be nuts in the brain. Seth Green and Jeffrey Combs are a joy to watch as always. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Released by Severin Films when they put out their horror anthology documentary Tales of the Uncanny, The Attic Expeditions was a revelation to me. It's a portmanteau I've never seen before and I was knocked out by its Asylum-influenced story of Trevor Blackburn, a man who may or may not have lost his mind. The problems begin when he and his girlfriend Faith purchase a home together and find a chest in the attic. Inside, they discover a book of black magic that gives them great power through a series of rituals. As they work on learning how to gain more power, a ritual that combines their consciousnesses leads to her death. Now in an asylum, Dr. Ek (Jeffrey Combs) and Dr. Coffee (Ted Raimi) hope to use the book of black magic to cure all mental illness, but Trevor can barely remember his past and has no idea where it is. Dr. Ek then sends Trevor to be rehabilitated at The House of Love, a recovery facility seemingly in the command of Dr. Thalama (Wendy Robie, The People Under the Stairs) that is really Trevor's old home. The goal is to make him find the book and use actors, their stories and fake murders to make him wake up and turn over the occult reference. Dead people come back to life, drugs and surgery are used on our protagonist and all of these things make him go even deeper into fantasy until there are multiple versions of himself and Faith all working on finding the black book. Originally intended to be the fourth film in the Witchcraft series, this film stands on its own, featuring really good performances — Seth Green is awesome in this — and the only downside is the alt rock soundtrack that was forced on the film by its producers. Sadly, this film — despite being picked up by Blockbuster — doesn't get the kind of publicity other lesser horror anthologies get. This movie is made even better by the fact that Alice Cooper shows up. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review camille l Le plus intéressant, avec The Attic Expeditions, c'est son ambition. Premier film de Jeremy Kasten, ancien monteur, ce petit film d'horreur psychologique est clairement un film à tiroirs, volontairement abscons et voué à plusieurs visions. Ce serait plutôt sympathique si le film était un peu plus réussi et agréable à regarder. Car The Attic Expeditions est un film fauché, parfois absurdement moche, à la limite du Grand Guignol à la Halloween 6. C'est aussi un film beaucoup trop court pour ce qu'il veut faire. L'autre énorme défaut de The Attic Expeditions est le contraste entre le protagoniste principal, Andras Jones, et les deux grands méchants du film, Jeffrey Combs et surtout Seth Green, qui s'en donne à coeur joie dans un rôle taillé pour lui, probablement une de ses meilleurs performances de sa carrière. Ce sont les deux grandes qualités d'un film qui vaut le coup d'oeil à défaut d'être réellement réussi. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Perversely perplexing panoply of paranormal paranoia. There's just nothing terrible to tell about this twisted, twitchy tale. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Cleverly staged and acted circular thriller--Intellectually Frightening!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
