Very well made movie... Made me jump several times
It has been years since I have gotten even remotely freaked out by a new movie. I think it was "The Others" and even then it was not to the degree that this film gave me chills. I really think the indie production is what helped to make this film effective. Had this been done like your typical studio job, this would not have been anywhere near as chilling. Even if you do not believe in the supernatural, you can relate to how frightening it would be to seeing footage of your house being invaded as you slept. The use of the camera and editing is really well executed here despite some of the minor motion sickness the weak might feel at a few of the shots. What a real step forward this film has made since "The Blair Witch Project" of ten years ago, though I realize the original release date of this was in '07. The two leads are excellent here in getting the audience to care about them and wonder new attack is coming. The only laughable part was when the planchette was moving around so fast on the Ouija board. I think it should have moved more slowly and eerily, but they did lasso the audience back in by what happens at the end of this scene. A very well done piece of horror cinema here especially considering the budget restraints and self-documentary style.
