Editorial Reviews

Julian (Johnny Pacar) enlists his friends to film a reenactment of the town's gruesome Harlan Diehl family murders for a school project. He asks social outcast Quinn (Toby Hemingway), an employee at the local news station, to assist with video equipment and research. During Quinn's examination of raw video footage of the Diehl family farm, an evil spirit is unleashed with a menacing agenda. As Julian s friends start disappearing, local police officer, Frank Lyons (Christian Slater), receives the order to investigate. As the secrets of the past are unveiled, the dark entity threatens to consume everyone in its way.

"Now I know the reason he killed his whole family. He was possessed." While a group of high school students are making a movie for a class they begin to uncover a dark secret involving the town's past. When one student watches a tape of the event he goes through a change that affects everyone he knows. I have to start by saying that I was surprised with how much I enjoyed and was entertained by this. That said this is just above a B movie. The acting is actually not that bad and the effects are pretty good. The plot of the movie is a cross between "Mirrors" and "The Ring" and is as entertaining as those were. I really am surprised by how much I enjoyed this, but I had no idea what to expect going in. I know I'm rambling on this one but I really can't explain why I liked this so much but I did and I recommend this. Overall, a surprising movie that is actually one of the better B grade horror movies I have seen lately. I give it a B+

This is a creepy, genuinely disturbing, graphically violent slasher/horror movie about a kind of demon that passes from person to person via videotape and film, sort of a cross between "Damien" and "The Ring." Although the violence can be a bit nauseating, the script is deliberate and multilayered, moving calmly from one unexpected turn of events to another. If you don't like scary movies, avoid this... But if you do, you'll dig it. It's creepy. (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue film reviews)

I found it interesting from the start. It held your attention and it was sort of complex (everything makes sense at the end). I don't believe in giving spoilers, so I won't - but, you should give this a watch. I gave it four stars as a B flick, but I lean more towards A rated. You have murder, perversion and possession all wrapped up in this film. It's going in my collection of DVD's!

But all the necessary parts are there! I looooooove scary creepy movies! I liked the premise of the movie and also that Christian slater was in it(barely) Instead of looking up a more detailed synopsis I went with the tiny blurb> I usually do not look at anything less than 3 stars no 4 stars to be honest> but I have seen recently so many 4 to 4 1/2 that sucked I said lets try a 3! I liked it so much better than I thought! I put my critical mind to sleep and sat back and rolled with it fun ride creepy antagonist and I mean creepy! A twist so surprising I held my hand to my mouth proclaiming "no way" I haven't done that since the movie " the Crying game" I will definitely watch it again. could give a crap about how horrible of a film an embarrassment! whatever movies are made to entertain us and make us feel different emotions. this film bulls eyed it! if there were better ways to promote it it definitely could have made a profit and a possible sequel. which I think they should maybe they can create a pearl. Its all there figure out how to create it! I think it should become a cult if a bunch of people play it at a Horror party mixed with already seen and not yet! wow could be fun for both parties! sequel sequel Call me its on!!!!!lol thanks I had fun!

This movie could have been a 5 but there were a couple places where it did drag a bit, there were a couple places where they went for the gross-out (luckily they were few and fairly quick), and the gratuitous boobies.

When you get past that, it was a good story (with plenty of creepy), the acting was good, and the old farmhouse set was great.

An evil demon is about to visit. What blows your mind as much as the sudden visit is Where it's coming from! Highly recommended for all horror lovers. The acting performance is excellent, there is Fear everywhere and the fright will knock your socks off. Entertaining it is indeed right to the end as you sit on the edge-of-your-seat. What happens next will certainly leave you with Nightmares!

This lower budget horror (aren't they all) had a very strong opening sequence and set the movie up to be one creepy ride and had me watching to the end.

The performance from about half the cast hurts the film a bit, but then again there are very few films in the genre that feature Oscar worthy performances. Though watching the feature the casting director and director seemed to go for looks over talent especially when it came the young females of the cast. Then again the budget could have gone to paying Christian Slater for his role.

The film has a professional vibe to it, as it is well graded and well shot. Also the director did well to mix the bloody gags with both CGI and corn syrup which for the fans of the old school is always a plus. That being said besides the supernatural aspect of this film this feature is pretty much horror-less.

As far as the story goes the film is part Scream and part Halloween and therefore somewhat tired. The story drags on a bit with a lot of nothing gone for extended periods throughout the film. This feature somewhat telegraph its ending a great deal does not try to to hide the antagonist which hurts the thrill factor.

My recommendation; If you're looking for horror in the vein of the 70's and 80's classics this is not the film you're looking for.
