I love this film. The premise was realistic and the filming was justified and natural, the character was original and tremendously well acted, and the pacing was great – very suspenseful. My parents own a cottage that is miles from town and this played on so many fears of mine, we’ve actually had issues with trespassers that have required us to set up game cameras on the property and I loved that they were integrated as a source of footage because I’ve had to check the SD card in the morning and it can be creepy as hell.
Even had I no personal experience with the setting, I think I’d find this refreshing in it’s simplicity and it’s compelling use of audio. I can’t think of many films off the top of my head that involve any sounds other than EVPs and footsteps, of which there are neither. It kept my attention the whole time and I was anxiously awaiting what would happen each night, my only complaint is the short length, I would be down to watch a 3.5 hour edition of this any day!
