My name is Rebecca. When I left for college my ex John thought web cams would help us keep in touch. It does but also leads us to a dark secret when we meet and cam with Vera Madeline, an on-line psychic, who warns "rituals" are being performed in the house I moved into. Okay like anyone out there should believe some online psychic.
On January 9, 2009, five college students left New York City for a weekend in the country. 48 hours later, all five students have simply vanished without a trace. There were no leads and no evidence - until now.

Two teenagers on vacation with their younger brother and parents bring cameras to their summer house in Spain in the hopes of catching some paranormal footage. They decide to explore the supposedly haunted labyrinthine series of paths in the densely wooded area adjacent to their house.
Strange things start happening, and a disappearance sets a chain of horrific events in motion.
The nighttime sequences in the heavily forested areas are claustrophobic and ominous, with a Blair Witch type feeling of dread as to what's out there in the dark.
The last half hour of this one is horrific at times and very frightening. One of the things I liked about this movie is that unlike a lot of other found footage entries nowadays, it didn't leave everything ambiguous at the end. I've enjoyed a lot of the open ended ones, but it's nice to have some variety.
Spain has given the world quite a bounty of well made horror films, and this one is no exception.
