(at around 1h 30 mins) When Ellison carries a container of materials to the attic for storage (which should contain a number of items) it is apparent that it is empty as he drops it on the attic floor, having been startled to see the projector box already sitting in the attic. See more »

Well written creepy horror
In a market that's saturated with predictable jumpscares and unscary gorefests it is refreshing to see a horror movie with a well written story, quality actors and a genuinely creepy atmosphere.
The chilling tone is set from the opening scene and it slowly builds throughout the film. Ethan Hawke is great as the true crime author obsessed with the case of a murdered family, and the rest of the cast do a solid job with their roles.
Definitely one of the better horror films of this decade.
