Slightly Above Average Found Footage Horror
22 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Let's keep it simple here. Found footage horror is my favorite sub-genre of horror and i've seen quite a bit of them.

This one here in short without spoilers is "trespassing gone wrong". The characters, acting etc are all good no problems there. Mostly in the "not enough scares" part that this kind of lacked for me personally.

However it is still worth watching in my opinion just don't get your hopes too high for it. I mostly would recommend it if you ran out of this sub-genre to watch and needed another one to tide you over until you see the next paranormal activity or something like that.

Last 15 minutes of the movie are where its at and with a short run time which is the way these movies should be. You don't got much to lose so give it a go.

6-6.5/10
