Take the low budget, settings, and direction of Evil Dead crossed with The Blair Witch Project and mix it with the theme and atmosphere of The Ring and you have Soft For Digging. Sounds promising, eh? Well, it is but with some faults. Some will be turned off by the slow pace, others by the almost complete lack of dialogue. For me, neither of these things were major problems. The biggest complaint I had is that it wasn't quite as "scary" as it should've been. It's like right on the edge of being a truly frightening film but somehow fails to take the big plunge, at least for me. If you thought The Ring was scary, this flick will be right up your alley. Nonetheless though, I did find it rather enjoyable (if that's the right word) and like I said, being right up to the edge, it did provide me a few chills and effective scenes. Good, dark-humored ending too.
