Praises and critiques:
First and foremost, Polaroid was a good paranormal horror movie to watch. There were a few tense scenes but it was not that scary. The storyline of this film was fine but somewhat predictable. As for the cast, they did a decent job adding some betterment to this motion picture.
Furthermore, the visual effects were well done when it came to the malevolent entity. Overall, this movie was good to watch but is lacking a little something that could allow it to be scarier.
I recommend this movie to fans of the teen-scream and paranormal subgenre because I think that it aims for a young adult audience.
I think that this movie deserves 3.5 stars because of its lack of originality and it wasn’t that scary.
