One Of The Best Horror / Mystery Films in years ..., 11 July 2005
Author: aseddon130 from United Kingdom

The first time i saw this was years ago, it was on Channel 4 (UK) after they premiered Blair Witch project, saying that it was 'based on a similar idea to the Blair Witch' where in fact it was the other way around (it was released before Blair Witch). I Remember reading Total Film (DVD Review Mag) and they loved it also, and billed it as a Blair Witch Rip Off also, so i never thought anything of it. Its also note-worthy that i absolutely HATED Blair Witch, it was absolutely awful - So a few years later it appears on C4 and because i was rough from the night before i watched it ... and it hooked me almost immediately. The mystery of it all was a cool build up and worked very well, the guy who was commentating the film (which was supposed to be the director) David Leigh, had a eerie sounding voice and it added to the films overall tone. It was generally frightening, and the ending was one of the best twist endings i have ever seen in a movie. It gave me goosebumps for a few hours, and the only thing i regretted was that i didn't record it for repeated viewing.

Luckily a few years later i got my hands on a copy of the DVD (because i saw it at a mates and he didn't like it, so he gave it to me for free) and i watched it a few times, over and over and the film is still as good as it was the first time i saw it. When i saw the DVD extras the two directors (who were also stars in the film) told us that they made the film for around $1000, and they made the film entirely on their PC with Digital Cameras, and many other old Cameras they had, and all of the cast was their friends and family (which i would have never had guessed to be honest), which in my eyes makes it a much unique and better film overall.

I've tried to convince my friends that its one of the best horror films I've ever seen but they've seen it and thought it is awful. (this is coming from friends that enjoyed 'The Grudge' and 'Chainsaw Massacre' remake and the rest of the crappy Hollywood horror movies made)

One of the best horror / mystery films i've ever seen, i saw it in a local DVD store for less than £3 so its a better buy than most stuff thats 5 times dearer - 10 out of 10
