Haunted Poland is a found footage genre film that most people will pass by, pre-judging it simply because it's "found footage"...sometimes, this is justified, because perhaps 8 out 10 of these genre films just don't cut it - they try to do too much, which mostly doesn't work.
Pau Maso has taken the found footage premise and come away with something that is exactly how FF films should be...something that The Last Broadcast and the early pioneers of the genre mastered - producing a low budget film that actually does scare you. Couple that with the little things, like no credits, no phoney FBI warnings etc, and you've got something that to an extent, can be construed as believable.
There's no gore, there's no monster, there's no killer on the loose wearing a ski-mask - what there is though - is a dark, brooding storyline that Maso develops brilliantly throughout, culminating in an ending that can only be described as chilling.
From a well thought out plot, to subtle fast cut scenes - the characters are developed with an expert hand, rapport with them building as the film goes on. There's no forced dialogue, all characters are clearly at ease with each other which shows in their performances.
Haunted Poland is not a movie to go and see if you are expecting blood and guts, this is a psychological and progressive look into what could happen as events overtake normal people going about their everyday lives.
Outstanding addition to the Found Footage sub genre.
