Trivia

The location for the phone booth scene wasn't discovered until mere hours before the shoot when a production assistant was sent out to find an adequate setting. Not having a generator to connect to for an additional light source in the middle of the night, the crew used the closest available power source - a nearby house. The homeowner slept through the entire shoot. See more »

Great film...so much more than it seems! NOT found footage.
8 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Very interesting film...leaves you wanting more. I watched it 3 times and discovered more each time. This film requires you to do some thinking...which is why some reviewers likely rated it poorly as they simply couldn't "imagine" or "question" or think about what's going on here.

A lot of reviews mention that this is a "Found Footage" film. It isn't... and makes me question if those that wrote the review actually watched the film. And if you've watched the movie from beginning to end, you will clearly figure that out.

The producer/writer/director Seve Schelenz adds many interesting slants to this film and, although it may appear slow in the beginning, I found the opposite. You want to know more. The characters are strong and despite finding "Rich's" character a bit 'nasal' and annoying, "Eva" makes up for it with her voice, tone and looks.

If you are looking for a "standard", predictable Hollywood horror film, this film is not for you. If you are open-minded and like low-budget yet very effective and all-encompassing horror-thrillers, Skew will not disappoint! Well done.
