Ain't It Cool Exclusive GREYSTONE PARK Trailer
Oliver Stone got his start in genre filmmaking - his first film SEIZURE was straight-up horror, followed by a pretty insane performance by Michael Caine in THE HAND - and now his son Sean Stone is following in his father's footsteps with his first feature-length film GREYSTONE PARK, about a camera crew exploring the depths of an abandoned insane asylum, cameras in tow, and what happens to them there.
Here's the synopsis:
Based on true events, the film follows three aspiring filmmakers trying to document unexplainable events in an abandoned insane asylum known as Greystone Park. Urban legend has it that anyone who ventures into the forsaken hospital will suffer the consequences and face their own horrors. The trio stumble across a mysterious realm of escaped patients, ghosts and demonic shadows, as they try to uncover the truth behind Greystone Park.GREYSTONE PARK stars Sean Stone, Oliver Stone, Alexander Wraith, Antonella Lentini, John Schramm, Monique Zordan and Monique Van Vooren and written by Stone and Wraith.

Hope so despite camcorder dynamic.
I think they need to take a 10 year break on these movies as I don't think it's scary any more, maybe come back in ten years and it might have an effect again!

And no film has ever overcome what Eddie Murphy states in Delirious - first ghostly voice you hear in a house, "too bad we can't stay baby" and drive the fuck away there and then.

This genre of filmmaking really has become bankrupt of all interest instead relying on `exciting` cover art work to sell it to unsuspecting teenagers. Do yourself a favour and demand more for your money.

paranormal activity 4 looks better.

Ugh, yet another filmmaker's offspring in the pipeline. With a paint-by-numbers, derivative, low-budget horror flick. At least the DVDs will make nice coasters.

I think enough is enough with these camera-view movies. I liked the Paranormal Activity flicks enough, but I'm hoping #4 is the last one. Okay, Trollhunter was neat, and apparently that superhero one was supposed to be really good. But Cloverfield kinda showed that you can only put so much gloss on these movies before they become ineffective, and the numbers of failures in the genre are racking up. Apollo 18, Chernobyl Diaries, Devil Inside, Diary of the Dead, Last Exorcism, Amityville Haunting...some of these have good qualities, but the numbers are racking up of less-than-memorable additions to the concept. And, as a horror fan, I just don't find them very effective anymore. Really, all of them have kind of blended together in my memory, and I have a tough time recalling which one was witch.

are a lot scarier than the fictional stuff people come up with.
Aug. 4, 2012, 8:05 a.m. CST
......and the drawing shown at the beginning of the trailer looks a whole lot like Danvers State Hosp. where "session9" was filmed.
Aug. 4, 2012, 8:06 a.m. CST
yeah, it kind of reminded me of the storm troopers in Half-Life. speaking of which, why can't we get a Half-Life movie? who wouldn't love a guy fighting inter-dimensional aliens and zombies with a crowbar?
Aug. 4, 2012, 8:19 a.m. CST
This guy's a winner- I'll direct, star, and throw in my famous dad for good measure! What a pretentious asshole.
Aug. 4, 2012, 8:39 a.m. CST
but in a haunted house..
Aug. 4, 2012, 8:40 a.m. CST
...paid AICN off to run this trash? With all the promising young independent directors posting their work online in the hopes that ANYONE will see it, we get this highlighted instead. I'm actually embarrassed for the site. It's "exclusive" because no one else would be caught dead running it, guys.

that he's David Bowie's son, he lets his work speak for itself. This guy is doing the opposite. He even cast his father. And holy fuck that trailer was boring as hell.

a horror found footage trailer just isnt complete without the 'character gets dragged away by their feet across the ground away from the camera' shot.
i wonder who put the money up for this to be made.

The first 5 seconds with the old document footage looked pretty scary. Someone ought to make a movie about those old nuthags.
Aug. 4, 2012, 12:11 p.m. CST
this type of filming is getting old
Aug. 4, 2012, 12:19 p.m. CST
Were there any AICN reviews (or anything at all)? Last I remember was the trailer posted here... just checked IMDB and it seems it has come and gone from theaters and already hit DVD?
Aug. 4, 2012, 12:21 p.m. CST
That's true. For a quick glimpse, it does look like it might be going somewhere interesting and creepy.
Aug. 4, 2012, 12:30 p.m. CST
Aug. 4, 2012, 12:51 p.m. CST
It's generally pretty hard to tell with this found-footage stuff.
Aug. 4, 2012, 1:04 p.m. CST
I watched it on TV years ago. The show is called "Ghosthunters" the episode is "Garden State Asylum". To make a movie based on that bullshit is stupidity at it's best.
Aug. 4, 2012, 1:32 p.m. CST
The plot synopsis is the most cliche ridden thing I've read recently. Hooray for having rich parents that let you do whatever you want, I guess. Must be nice.
Aug. 4, 2012, 2:01 p.m. CST
That way, if it turns out the place is haunted by violent ghosts, I'd definitely be the last one they try to kill.

Aug. 4, 2012, 2:06 p.m. CST
Whenever I see "Based on True Events" attached to a horror movie, I tune out. Guess what kids? There are no demons, ghosts, vampires, etc. Hence it can't be based on true events. I am so sick of found footage bullshit movies. Enough already. Also this prick is probably just as full of shit as his Daddy, so fuck em both.
Aug. 4, 2012, 2:15 p.m. CST
...that are exactly like this. "Found footage" of an insane asylum ghost hunt. And this doesn't look it's any better than those.

What is up with Trailers these days? This thing is atrocious, Lego makes better trailers for it's cartoons! :\
Aug. 4, 2012, 4:35 p.m. CST
Banksy's behind this...it's the only way I can wrap my head around this project. I mean, REALLY?!?
Aug. 4, 2012, 5:14 p.m. CST
...how many times can people possibly make the same exact movie over and over and over and over and over and over again!? I mean what most an ego be like to say, " the blair witch project was good i'm gonna do that cause that worked?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??" Holy SHIT!!!!
Aug. 4, 2012, 5:16 p.m. CST
in which they clone tarzan multiple times and the man-ape kings run amok. this is what i was hoping for.

Hasn't worked since Texas Chainsaw used it to reference Ed Gein. I'm sure at some point I will see this, but Hot Damn, this is repetition at its finest. It is NOT based on real events. You are just referencing a ghost story. Fuckers. Sorry, it's 105 degrees in Oregon today. Where is my dismal rain and cold?
Aug. 4, 2012, 5:44 p.m. CST
We are all an agreement about this film. There is hope yet.
Aug. 4, 2012, 6:05 p.m. CST
And I'm sorry, but I've worked around fluorescent lighting for years, and NEVER have I seen one just randomly come fully off and on like that... anyone have a different experience?

Unlike the 'Blair Witch' or any of the found-footage movies, you can actually go to Greystone. So before trashing the flick, maybe you should give Sean Stone some credit for having the balls to break in and explore it for himself. Check out his talk with Alex Jones about the experience -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZCg3ZoaPgM

All the places Ghost Hunters and the like go to, are real places too. With interesting History. Doesn't mean this movie is going to be anything different. I guess, I will just say, The Trailer didn't sell me. Seems like rehashed ideas, which is unfortunate, for the son of Oliver Stone. If THIS is the movie that really shows ghosts, and changes my mind about everything, then I will step back and gladly eat every fiber of my underwear. But No, this is just another movie. I believe in ghosts and I watched your link. Cool stuff, for sure, but this movie looks like a big bag of turds that I don't need to look at.
Aug. 4, 2012, 11:23 p.m. CST
Well - that was catastrophically unoriginal. I wouldn't even watch that for free. Know why? Because I've SEEN FILMS EXACTLY LIKE IT A THOUSAND TIMES ALFUCKINGREADY. I mean, COME ON. Can't this "found footage" thing RETIRE already?
Aug. 5, 2012, 1:43 a.m. CST
it is all their fault that all this bs scary shaky cam shit has been made
Aug. 5, 2012, 1:45 a.m. CST
Aug. 5, 2012, 2:27 a.m. CST
I would put them in a cage with hungry bears and see what footage I found in the morning.
Aug. 5, 2012, 2:38 a.m. CST
They actually went to an old building and they actually filmed this stuff. Now that is frightening. Also I'm a big fan of people using using terrible film effect plugins in post. So... great.
Aug. 5, 2012, 4:58 a.m. CST
No one else would view such shite.
Aug. 5, 2012, 5:42 a.m. CST
Shite is definately the word as is pish! Another spoilt brat who's be fucking nowhere without his paw.
Nepotism fuck aspiring hardworking people trying to make it in whatever field. Priviledged douches take their places foisted by their cunt parents.
Aug. 5, 2012, 5:49 a.m. CST
Nothing supernatural is 'based on actual events.' That idiots scared themselves somewhere is as far as that statement has any bearing on that claim.
Aug. 5, 2012, 8:42 a.m. CST
Why the fuck is AICN promoting this turd?
Aug. 5, 2012, 10:28 a.m. CST
That gags got whiskers on!
Aug. 5, 2012, 12:05 p.m. CST
"there are some places that shouldn't be explored".... "there are some things you don't want to know"... lol, seriously??

I think that's the former insane asylum in Philadelphia -- forgot what it's called, but my brother said he had a friend who worked there. Or something. Not sure what to think of that trailer. It's creepy thinking about what probably happened in the asylum, but as an atheist, I'm not scared in any way of "supernatural" thrillers. Give me REAL insane-asylum horror, and you'll scare the crap out of me. But paranormal ghost stories with hand-held camera shots don't do it for me. They never really did, actually. Ever. That said, for fans of supernatural horror, I hope Sean Stone delivers something a bit unexpected. Hard to tell from the trailer if he will.
Aug. 5, 2012, 2:26 p.m. CST
Just because your dad is a famous Oscar-winning director doesn't mean you have the same talent as your dad.

Aug. 5, 2012, 4:51 p.m. CST
That looks dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. The biggest problems with these stupid fucking FF movies, besides them being shockingly repetitive, is that the actors are so obviously acting. First rule of a fake documentary should be act like you're in a fucking documentary. You can just see every one of these desperate drama students trying to be discovered in this movie. Just awful.
Aug. 5, 2012, 5:29 p.m. CST
But they're two different asylums, Greystone and Danvers State Hospital. Two pretty cool looking building with a lot of history and I'm sure plenty of ghost. Session 9 was a pretty good movie though.
Aug. 5, 2012, 11:56 p.m. CST
Why not just ask the Stone family why they chose to single this site out for this punishment?
Aug. 6, 2012, 1:16 a.m. CST
I'll take that any day over this. FANTASTIC film that is deeply disturbing. Not this one. SESSION 9.

and cancel this pile of horse shit before Oliver lets his kid embarrass himself.
Aug. 6, 2012, 4:09 a.m. CST
wth I just viewed. It felt like a student film mixed with some found footage... with B movie production value.
Aug. 6, 2012, 7:29 a.m. CST
since ur giving out toys.
Aug. 6, 2012, 1:07 p.m. CST
Prediction: it will suck (and be pretentious).
