Well, sure, when you ominously title it that, it's easy for us to say "don't go through!"
3 September 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

After a quick jump-scare(get used to it - someone behind this has a severe crush on them. Meanwhile, they tend to be somewhat earned, and certainly aren't cheap), we join a meeting in progress. "Incidents" are being discussed, and the scope gradually increases as the horrifying truth becomes clearer to us.

The reason I watched this at all was an article on Cracked.com; therein, the reader is urged to stop watching at 6 minutes and 46 seconds into the smoothly paced 8 and a half minute running time - that is, before some title cards and the end credits. For the sake of this review, I did not do so. I can see where the author is coming from - it renders obvious what used to be subtext - however, I disagree that it "ruins" the whole.

This is rather well-produced. Filming, editing, FX, acting, all top-notch. Atmosphere is established and maintained tremendously effectively... this is essentially a series of vignettes connected by "what's really going on". The realism really sells us on what's going on - we accept the handful of sci-fi aspects(all of them quite credible) in this readily, because it's clearly the real world.

Conceptually, and as far as the themes go, this is highly relevant; the genre thrives on such, and it's too rare, these days, that something this original(bringing up a recent issue, instead of relying on more universal ones, that have already seen compelling stories dedicated to them) sees the light of day(and certainly, this, the indie scene, is where to go to find it).

There is a lot of disturbing content in this - it runs as an undercurrent throughout. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys food for thought. 8/10
