Not the worst movie I've ever seen, but definitely in the same ballpark. Being from Indiana (where the film was shot "on location"), I was hoping for much more. What some might call "creative, kinetic camera work" is really just a complete lack of understanding about what goes into composing a shot. I can't say how many times you will see the backs of people's heads while they are talking, or their knees as the enter a room, or huge chunks of wall or ceiling instead of characters, or characters moving on and off camera while we get a good loooooooooong look at the freaking lamp in the background. Some of the actors do a decent job - I just wish that I was offered the chance to care about them. The lighting... well, I could go on and on, so I'm going to switch gears and discuss the movie itself. It wasn't scary, which is a bad thing for a horror film. It was confusing. The idea was okay, but it seemed like the best parts were stolen from other horror films. There's a Leatherface scene, a People Under the Stairs scene, a Silence of the Lambs theme, heck - there was a scene from Bring It On that they ended up cutting from the film. I will end by saying that if the director (Travis Betz, I believe) gets a chance to make a film with the help of a cinematographer and a lighting tech (a sound tech wouldn't hurt either), that he seems capable of doing much, much better work. Here's hoping it works out for him.
