Storyline

Miles Kody, is a documentary filmmaker. Living off a long ago success he's now searching for his "second" break. He finds that in the seedy world of snuff films. He interviews Vic, a seasoned pro with a menacing, mysterious dark side. Miles becomes obsessed with the subject matter and his subject. Miles' primary investor, Carl, is also very interested, more in the hypnotic allure of the movies and potential for profit. As Miles tapes his interviews with Vic he becomes aware of the appearance of "ghosts" captured on his video monitor. He realizes that the faint energy fields of these ghosts, past victims of the snuff films, are picked up more readily on video. As a ghost becomes more powerful they become more visible to the naked eye. He soon realizes that Vic is in league with the Devil and delivers the souls of his victims to attain more power.

Surprisingly Haunting!
4 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on netflix with no high expectations at all. I saw it as another poorly made blood and guts indie film with no actual story. The first scene caught me off guard. With a snuff film showing a man being brutally murdered by a beautiful woman, I knew this one had some potential. The acting and writing was solid, and the camera (unlike so many "cool" movies today) was stable and you could tell what was going on. In a world where movies like Paranormal Activity rake in dough even though people don't know what is going on half of the time, this movie was a nice change of pace and actually scared me for a good while after the movie ended, as opposed to a couple of cheap pop-corn scares. I definitely recommend it!
