Satanic (2016)

In his first feature, extensive episodic television director Jeffrey G. Hunt presents a script from Anthony Jaswinski (The Shallows) where four friends go on a tour of satanic haunts around Los Angeles and end up meeting the wrong free spirit. Failing to bring any creepy vibes to the table, the film is just one bad decision after another. In probably the only draw this movie has, Modern Family's wholesome Sarah Hyland gives us a shrieking yet tepid performance. I've always believed the most substantial problem that can arise in a film (especially a horror film) is boredom, and this one has it in droves.
