Good movie, kinda scary, i kept yelling at them to turn on some gosh-dang lights. Nice use of Boards of Canada. Seriously, though, quite good, and the choice of "music" for the home movies made them even more disturbing.

I LOVE this film and am super stoked it's on Shudder!! Nice creepiness, a nice twist from the regular 'haunted items' genre.

This movie intriguingly starts off as a mystery, which throughout starts gradually turning into a terrifiying, sinister demonic thriller!

A well acted, super creepy film that may leave you awake at night with the lights on. Ethan Hawke is brilliant as always. Some spooky images may remain swirling around in your brain afterwards... enjoy!
