This "true story" follows a team of paranormal investigators who are spending the night on the site of serial killer John Wayne Gacy's former home. Although Gacy's house of horrors has long since been demolished, with another house erected in its place, the tortured spirits of his 33 victims seem to be alive and well.

In the tradition of films such as The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, 8213 Gacy House is about a group of paranormal investigators who spend a night in a home that was built on the site where John Wayne Gacy murdered 33 young boys. After the group arrives and gets things set up strange things begin to happen but they continue on in hopes of getting some good evidence but what they don't know is Gacy might still be around. It goes without saying that this is not real footage but I figured I better toss that out there for those that believe these sort of things. The film is similar to The Asylum's "Paranormal Entity" in nature but over-all I enjoyed the film. The film starts off a bit slow but as it moves a long it becomes a lot more interesting and there are a few good scares and creepy moments along the way. The acting is pretty solid across the board, the actors did a fine job at making their characters as believable as possible in a film such as this. The camera work is effective enough to create the atmosphere needed here as well. If you like films like the ones I mentioned above then I am sure you are going to find this one to be entertaining as well. The films does start off a little slow but it gets more enjoyable as it moves along.

The DVD comes with only one Special Feature, a "Documentary" where the paranormal team is interviewed before they go to the site, it's not very interesting but a little entertaining none the less and it fits in well with what The Asylum was trying to do here. 8213: Gacy House doesn't offer up anything new but it's execution and cast make it a worthwhile rental at least. You can order the DVD HERE.
