Damn, this film fucked me up. I pride myself on being able to sit through horror films without needing to take a break but found myself pausing this one.
This film is perfectly paced. There wasn’t a moment where I felt at ease, dread looming throughout. The videotape is eerily simple yet so disturbing and after every viewing it gets more unsettling.
Also, with fear coursing through me I couldn’t help but notice how alluring the cinematography was. Some of the shots are beautifully framed. They’re modest, but they include endless possibilities of evil.
Writing this short, mediocre review at 2am because I don’t quite feel ready to sleep.
