This could have been such an amazing movie had they chose to go the serial killer route. The ending they went with is frankly less realistic and scary. However I love this film and it’s extremely eerie.

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.
