In the fall of 1960, Father Thomas Riley and Father John Thornton were sent by the Vatican to investigate a miraculous event in an Irish home for 'fallen women', only to uncover something much more horrific.
Chris Shaw was an up and coming Internet sensation. In his videos he performed rituals he found on the web, testing their legitimacy in summoning spirits. His last video never got to be broadcast, until now. Chris films everything as he, his girlfriend Tara and their friends Brent, Lorraine and Nicole travel to Brent's holiday house nestled in the vast, isolated plains of rural Victoria. Once they arrive they prepare and perform the latest ritual Beckoning the Butcher, a mysterious invocation Chris found online, designed to entice a paranormal entity into this world. All who took part in the ritual that night went missing without a trace. The only clue for investigators was the found footage contained on Chris's camera. Unfortunately for all involved, the footage itself seemed to pose more questions than to provide answers. Using interviews from family members, detectives and psychics, along with Chris's footage, this film aims to piece together the events of that fateful night and ...Written by
Five friends go to an out-of-the-way house to summon a ghost called The Butcher. Nobody thinks it's real, so they believe they'll have one or two days of just sitting back and trying not to laugh too hard as they conduct a ritual to summon the spirit. Unfortunately for them, the ghost turns out to be all too real. This is filmed through camcorders, as most of these found-footage films are, so don't expect anything out of the cinematography.
I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers who said it's the best found footage film since The Blair Witch Project. It was interesting, but kinda boring until the entity finally showed up. First of all, it was only 69 minutes long. When you have 5 characters in such a short film, it's hard to build enough of an attachment for the audience to care about them. That's what happened here. Plus, it's not as though a group of people looking for a ghost by using dark magic hasn't happened before in a movie, so it wasn't very original. And then the clichés of no cellphone service and the car not working happened. There were a few scenes of special effects, but it wasn't over-used, so I think they got that about right.
I gave this a 5-star rating, because the acting was pretty good, and the people conveyed a real sense of fear. However, I've seen better found-footage films. Still, it was entertaining enough for what it was. I'm glad it wasn't longer, because I couldn't take much more of the screaming and the jerky camera footage from the running. If you're a found-footage fan, I recommend this. However, if you have limited time to put into movies, I'd advice you keep looking.
