I've watched a lot of found footage movies, and I found this one to be particularly chilling. I definitely felt on edge throughout the latter half. This is a hidden gem. I highly recommend.

I've watched so many classic Japanese movies, and this was supposed to be one of the best? This was difficult to sit through, and not because it was scary. The only still shot in the entire film is during the last scene. The rest of the movie is very exaggerated, obnoxious shaky cam and extreme zoom in's on people's faces (to the point where all you can see is their eyes). The cinematography is the worst I've ever seen for a found footage film. There is only one scene in the entire movie that will give you chills, but chugging along through the slow, boring build-up isn't worth it. It's hard to follow and there is no satisfying pay off. After all the recommendations I got for this flick, I'm very disappointed in how awful it turned out to be.

My only complaint is that I'm still not really sure what happened or WHO was possessed in the end. It would have been scarier if it was easier to follow.
