A reality television crew, whose show features stories about drug addicts, finds that their 16-year-old junkie for their latest episode might actually not be fighting addiction, but a demonic force gripping her soul.
Five years after an unexplained malfunction causes the death of 15 tour-goers and staff on the opening night of a Halloween haunted house tour, a documentary crew travels back to the scene of the tragedy to find out what really happened.
After now watching two found footage movies back to back I can confidently say that my faith in the sub-genre is returning.
This Australian made film is only short at around the 40 minute mark but left me astounded just how good it was.
It tells the story of three friends who are making a documentary about the local railway museum and the alleged reports of it being haunted.
A railway museum immediatly is a very original location for a movie like this. Not an asylum or a haunted house but an airy stunning museum filled with trains and memorabilia. For this reason the film really stands out and feels refreshing compared to the majority.
It builds up tension perfectly, has a couple of very clever spots and delivers on every front.
My one complaint and the thing which prevented me giving this a higher rating was the finale. I'm not sure if I missed something or if it was intentionally left ambiguous but the ending being so vague really hurt it for me.
Regardless this is one of the best found footage pieces I've ever seen and would love the films creators to make more.
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Being set in alternative locations is what the found footage genre needs
I probably would have left Ned, I may be a bad person
