I've learned not to expect too much from most horror movies, but I still manage to be entertained by most of them. This is an exception. I wanted to like this movie, but it just never came together. The scares weren't scary, the story didn't make sense, and the times I felt like something big was going to happen all fell flat. If you can see this one for free, and have time to waste, go for it. Otherwise, don't waste your time.

Just to start off I'm a huge fan of Asian horror movies and the horror movie genre in general. I also really liked Paranormal Activity 1 and 2, and Paranormal Entity. At first glancing at the cover of this movie I thought it looked pretty stupid, but I was excited to see another take on the whole haunted house documentary movie genre. So I rented the movie from amazon and surprisingly really liked it.

The plot is actually fairly original in regards to its differences from the other "paranormal" movies that have been out lately. It's a different movie with the same idea of being a documentary. If you really enjoyed paranormal activity 1 and 2, and entity, you will probably like this movie. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, I would definitely recommend it to fans of the genre.

Movie started out great. Your typical, enjoyable found footage film-wonderfully creepy!
Suddenly, we discover the husband gone and the rest of the movie was pretty much one long talk session with the woman and the paranormal team. Finally, I was too bored to continue any further so I turned it off.
Disappointing.

As a fan of Asian horror and movies that don't need to follow a brisk pace for short attention spans, this film was plain boring. Very little happens and no scares at all. Creepy walking and a random blinking eye provide the only scares. No real psychological creeps, and nothing to get under your skin.
