Captures the chilling uncanny factor that makes good found footage work
After the mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. Each to their own I guess. I enjoyed it.
One of the most underappreciated mockumentary/found-footage horror dramas ever made. Truly chilling in its slow-burn creepiness, genuinely upsetting in its themes and imagery, and containing a moment of terror so powerful and unexpected, that it made me jolt and leap out of my seat in fright, which is a total rarity for me. An essential must-see.
