Riveting low budget thriller!
10 November 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that for the first few minutes, I thought this was going to be yet another DV amateur clunker, but wow, was I wrong.

The story is very clever and full of twists, leaving no gaps, holes, or guessing on the part of the viewer. It's well acted and the characters are fully realized, so much so, you find yourself sympathizing with the protagonist. I would have liked a bit more exposition of George; a bit more history as to who the girl was and how he ended up where he did with her as that would have added more dimension to the character and added depth to the ending(I'm trying to avoid spoilers; you'll have to watch the movie to understand what I'm talking about), however, the story is tight enough that this is not a deal-breaker by any means.

Technically, the cinematography is first rate and plenty atmospheric, surprisingly so, and I'm no fan of DV, so that's saying something. It's well edited,and briskly paced. Sound is clear and very well mixed. The music is eerie and fits beautifully, adding a tremendous depth.

Hats off to all involved; it's amazing what they accomplished on a budget of what was reported as just over $125k. I wonder what they could have done if they had twice as much, or even ten times as much, but in the end, I can't say they really needed it as there's really no fault I can find in this film. A lot of much bigger budget producers and directors could learn a few things from watching this film.

Overall, fans of low budget supernatural thrillers will love this flick, and fans of big budget movies will be pleasantly surprised.
