    A Town Full of Ghosts

    ★★★½

    One of the coolest locations I’ve seen in a found footage film, and it’s used to great effect for the most part. The lead actor is highly engaging/charismatic and the story feels quite grounded overall despite being a bit safe, with solid performances across the board.

    Christopher Alender’s “The Old Ways” is hands down one of the most well-made, refreshing, and genuinely disturbing possession films of recent years, in almost every imaginable way. The filmmakers manage to set the hooks in the viewer very early on with an interesting premise that’s highly engaging from the minute it begins due to masterful cinematography, a slew of great performances, and excellently crafted effects that really bring the gore.

Very well shot with some incredibly long takes and excellent performances, this is a great example of how to make an engaging, quirky feature on a budget.

    P.S. - Shoutout to the thematically relevant poster that also looks great.
