Storyline

When a television producer visits the home of a brother and sister to interview them for his series on paranormal phenomena, what first appears to be a simple case of psychopathology turns into a full-blown epidemic of demonic manifestation. To his horror he realizes that he is not only a witness to the blossoming insanity, filming each scream and horrific expression, but that he and his technology have been intricately tied to the cause and conduit of its spread.

Nice try
13 August 2006 | by (North Carolina USA) – See all my reviews

I want to like this movie a lot but i just can't say it was great. It has its moments but for the most part it fails. When i first started watching it the first thought that went through my head was the movie Pulse. Even though i haven't seen Pulse (just released at the time of this writing) I know the premise. The acting was good, and the story line was decent but it tends to drag in places, i found myself playing with my phone or whatnot between the action sequences. Also the Japanese ghost thing with people crawling on floor all contorted is a bit over played in my opinion. I mean why does all Japanese ghost movies have the same thing like that? Don't they get tired of the same thing every time? I mean it was cool in The Ring and The Grudge but give it a break already.
