Another Haunted House Movie

The Haunting of Whaley House (2012)

Having found work as a tour guide at Whaley House, a young woman is spooked when a tourist freaks out and has a fit in front of her, genuinely spooked by what is going on in house. Having talked to her friends after work they decide to break in to the house after house and do some amateur investigations in to the paranormal.

First things first and apparently there is a Whaley House although "The Haunting of Whaley House" was not filmed there. Maybe for those who have some sort of interest in reportedly haunted houses that will add something which is appealing to this movie because as someone who has never heard of Whaley House all that "The Haunting of Whaley House" ended up was a typical movie about teenagers/young adults spending a night in a haunted building.

As such there is very little in "The Haunting of Whaley House" which you won't have seen before the mix of characters to the frights and of course the gore with elements of accidental death, the sort of scene where someone gets spooked by something and then ends up stumbling onto a pipe. As I said there is nothing here which is new but it does have a strange tone as at times it seems like it is trying to be a serious and creepy horror but then there will be something humorous tossed in to the mix and even a brief topless scene for good measure. I almost get a feeling that after they put together the first cut of the movie someone decided they wanted to alter the movie's tone and added extra bits which jar with the rest of the movie.

What this all boils down to is that "The Haunting of Whaley House" is just another in a long line of movies featuring young people spending a night in a haunted house and if anything it suffers from a mixed tone which gives it a sense of not knowing what it wants to be.
