100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck – USA, 2012

100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck – aka Paranormal Entity 4: The Awakening – is a 2012 American supernatural found footage horror film directed by Martin Wichmann. The Asylum production stars Jackie Moore, Adam LaFramboise and Hayley Derryberry.

Paranormal investigators try to film real-life multiple murderer Richard Speck‘s ghost at the site of his heinous killing spree…

Reviews:

“This is the debut film of director Martin Andersen and it seems to me that he was aware of what he was making and tried to avoid delivering a painful movie. He is able to avoid making it boring by having a good pace and does try to entertain by adding some sleaziness to the film.” Torstein Karlsen, Cinema Terror

“Scares are of the crash, boom, bang variety […] 100 Ghost Street is a further step backward with no historical accuracy, no fun factor, and nothing original to set it apart from the rest of the flotsam clogging the sub-genre.” Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt

“It might not be as creepy as Paranormal Entity, but director Martin Andersen have so much fun with the idea and delivers a visually creative production, very far from the typical found footage knock-offs. What’s interesting is that the characters gets a chance to come alive before they’re killed, with some good acting. It’s a movie that feels alive.” Fred Anderson, Schmollywood Babylon

“…there are two scenes of heavily implied sexual assault, handled without any kind of subtlety and that will certainly be off-putting to many viewers. Given a mostly talented cast, a very creepy setting, and the director’s clear proficiency with the found footage format, a far superior film could have been made.” Hannah Norby, Found Footage Critic

” If you’re concerned about whether or not there are highly improbable scenarios devised to get the female cast members’ shirts off, rest assured that base is covered. If you’re wondering whether or not anyone gets out alive, fear not — you know the answer to that one going in, too.” Ryan C., Trash Film Guru

“This didn’t need to be about Richard Speck, and obviously the location and history this movie purports to be true are fabricated to work within the confines of a low budget indie flick. Not to mention to graphic reenactments of Speck’s actions. Once past that issue though, 100 Ghost Street is an effective “Ghost Hunters” gone wrong movie.” Trevor Anderson, Movie Mavericks
