About the Movie
Two high school filmmakers’ (Keir Gilchrist and Logan Miller) experiment started with a simple idea: if you had the equipment and the ambition, could you convince another person that they're being haunted? Through a series of escalating pranks, the boys taunt their elderly neighbor (James Caan) further and further to get a reaction. As their suspicions grow and the tension mounts, they realize too late that the man they're manipulating is the last person they should've chosen for their project.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's not much real suspense stirred here by a premise that straddles recent found-footage thrillers and "Rear Window."
Rotten: The dreary lack of suspense in this tweaked "Rear Window" scenario, and our inability to care one whit for two cruel, arrogant bullies operating under a perceived notion that they're social scientists, makes this one tough going.
Rotten: A film that - from its basic set-up to its dearth of tension - plays like the tedious inverse of Don't Breathe.
Wow did not know what to expect. But that ending?? Holy cow; really smart and suspenseful. Much more than your average thriller. This is not a horror movie. It's a thoughtful thriller with some real emotion. Very impressed! Definitely worth 90 mins of your time!
My head is still spinning from that ending. Wow. Such a cool, inventive, edge of your seat thriller. Highly recommend!
A surprising twist in the last 20 mins! Although very saddening in the end, it is a look into how horrid the justice system is today.
