Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: a sophisticated, adult tale that blends complex, compelling emotions with reflexive commentary on film as a 'medium' of memory, manipulation and magic... a classic supernatural enigma, once seen never forgotten.
Fresh: And don't deny yourself the film's final creepy images - stay for the credits...
Fresh: Genuinely compelling, this mock documentary from first time feature director Joel Anderson builds on its wonderfully eerie mood to deliver an enigmatic ghost story, family drama and story about a teenage girl with secrets.
Fresh: It may be overstating it, but Anderson's command of cinematic language is right up there with Bryan Singer's audacious bag of tricks in The Usual Suspects.
yes seriously, i flew out of my chair at multiple points...
well actually i threw my headphones off and slapped my face. This movie does deliver some serious chills.
This is a beautiful and disturbing mockumentary with a wicked, fantastic soundtrack.
This movie surprised me. I've grown to expect interrsting movies from the After Dark Horrorfest series. Could be interestly good or awful. This movie really isn't a horror film at all. it's more about grief and how it affects a family. There are mild scares, but it is more about family interactions than anything else.
Kind of boooooring
I usually enjoy movies like this. However, while watching this I was waiting and waiting for something to happen and it never does. They could have done so much more with that movie. This was really boring and not at all scary. The acting itself is not bad, there is no plot or any storyline.
