A perfectly creepy little no budgeter with some flaws
Its a strange mix of reviews here.
I'd heard positive things about the film from a handful via word of mouth of festival screenings, but I suppose the thing here is to lower your expectations. I was made aware that this was made on very little money by some filmmakers who had seen it. So I went in with those expectations adjusted.
The film is good, not quite great, but very competent and there's are moments that really gave me the chills. There are some jump scares in there, but they feel earned, there's a build up to them and they work for the most part.
The film gets a little silly toward the end of the second act and it does feel like it starts to fall apart a bit, silly lines and jokes in what had been a very serious film up until that point.
The end is where the film comes into it own, taking the expectations of this kind of genre film and doing something different and although it moves toward bleak territory as it closes. It works.
Lets be honest, if you only watch movies like The Conjuring and Insidious, then the lack of polish is going to put you off, the film requires the audience to make some connections and thats not going to work with everyone.
The lighting is nice, most of the actors do a good job with a decent script and its kind of amazing what can be done with a camera and some actors and not much money.
I'd give it a 6.2
