14 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We happened to catch this at the Dances With Films Festival and at the Action On Film International Film Fest where it won 'Best Horror'. I wouldn't call this a horror film because the term usually means lots of splatter and this has little blood but there's no category for 'Best Supernatural' or 'Best Ghost' story at any of these fests which is too bad, that would be a better category even though it had it's share of creepy moments. Both screenings had very positive reaction and we were glad to see this especially guessing the producers had about as much money as the catering budget of a studio picture for their film. In this case it worked to their advantage because the story benefited with a gradual creepy film that never signaled where it was going or how it would end. There is always the danger of piling on a lot of effects when you have the money but here they got very good mileage out of the story that could have gone over the top and blown the mood. Also wanted to mention the lead actor, he was very good especially in the last ten minutes. Doubt this will get any kind of theatrical release but will do well on DVD. So much better than 95% of the straight to DVD releases.
