Six ex-classmates decide to spend some holidays together. To enjoy a short rest period and some amusement, they rent a manor house in the countryside, upon where to forget the raving madness of the city life.

A group of fiends decide to rent a county side manor house for the 4-day holiday weekend, but its not long before unexplained supernatural forces leave one of their number seemingly possessed . A priest that happens to live next door rushes to help in this Italian offering to the booming, some would say played out, 'found footage' horror film, that I saw via Redbox under the U.S. title of "Back From Hell"
Reasonably well-acted even if the story is a tad trite. Other pluses are beautiful scenery and a few,albeit admittedly seldom, tense scenes. This is a tad offset by an ending that ,while I shall not spoil, leaves something to be desired. All in all, the film was fairly watchable but ultimately forgettable
