How wrong I was as this is easily one of the worst horror movies I have seen in a decade.
A. T. Bowley
This movie was not so good, acting was not so good, loud music throughout the movie could not hear the actors, this movie looked like a B movie so since of realism.
Leon Del
It was a decent flik but, I would have really not liked it if I had paid to go to it... If you have nothing better to watch than I guess this will do.

"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 is a really entertaining horror movie. It's not mind boggling terrifying but the acting is excellent and the situations are realistic and believable. There is a merciful lack of excessive screaming, gore, guts, tacky bedroom scenes, blood splattering, projectile vomiting, idiotic dialogue and other favorite pastimes of the simple minded.

Teenagers being teenagers....boring. A tired formula used too much. I wanted to stop the video but ...since I started it...might as well finish it. Only about 1/2 way through does it get mildly interesting. Surprise ending ? Not if you have watched a zillion of these kinds of horror films. Zillion ? Okay...I exaggerate., slightly.
