A lot of viewers seem to have been nonplussed by this film, and I'm not entirely sure why. While the "found footage" technique is getting a bit hackneyed, there's still value in it if the director does it right. And in this case Carlen Torrens seemed to know what he was doing. (People seem to forget that the style originated with "The Last Broadcast" (1998) and not "The Blair Witch Project", tending to blame the latter instead of the former.)
It's not the concept that makes this a really grimy, scary movie, it's the cast of characters Torren brings on board, more specifically two actors who are just generally sinister in whatever roles they play: Michael O' Keefe and Kai Lennox, namely. O' Keefe looks particularly ghastly in this film as Dr. Helzer (a not so subtle reference to Hanz Holzer, the "parapsychologist" who once channeled the spirit of Elvis and wrote a book about it) as the lighting reflects on his constantly sweaty, angst ridden face. Kai Lennox absolutely looks like the malevolent dad with some perverse secret, and his meltdown at one point is great acting.
Keefe plays the parapsychologist called on by Lennox (Alan White, widower) as he needs assistance with his daughter's strange behavior and a poltergeist phenomenon within the home. The movie moves fairly quickly from being lighthearted to sinister without skipping a beat. When the explanations come--a cocktail of mental illness with something else moving around--it is genuinely eerie and packed with atmosphere. The only huge flaw in this production is the ending shot, which was absolutely cliched and just awful. Fortunately, that's after all the important elements of the film have occurred.
I would recommend this to any fan of the horror genre, despite the reservations that may come from some hasty reviews.
