A well-made film, taking a professional tilt at a worn-out genre

Some teenagers decide to run an experiment on their grumpy, creepy old neighbour. They decide to see if they can make him believe in ghosts by rigging his house with cameras and tricks.

Now on paper this does not have a lot going for it. It is fairly cheap, has a found footage element and sounds like a rip-off of the Burbs or Disturbia. Well it isn't - this is much more.

For once it makes sense that everything is filmed and the added element of a court case adds a degree of mystery to the film.

The characters and performances are great. The scope of the film is tiny, only a few rooms, so the tight budget is not a problem and everything looks professional.

There is no mass of action or intensity here but I found this movie gripping, intriguing, and some of the back story even a little moving.

I may be in the minority but pound for pound this is one of the best movies I have seen all year.

Hate Can Be Good

If the quality of a movie can be judged by how much emotion its characters evoke, this film is a winner because I hated certain characters by the end. Like, viseral hate.

+++SOME SPOILERS+++

The plot is super-simple: two teenagers secretly surveil their neighbor for the purpose of making a psychological art film. Things, of course, end up going very wrong. The movie first appealed to me because James Caan is in it. I mean...Why would he choose to do a junk movie at this point in his career, right? Well, I wasn't disappointed.

The downsides of the movie are: (1) Not a whole lot of action; (2) Shot almost entirely in low light; (3) Slightly drags in the middle.

Upsides are: (1) Interesting plot; (2) slow building suspense; (3) Ending full of multi-layered emotions.

RECOMMENDED

Do all the secrets worth unfolding!!!

This is really refreshing. Something rare and unpredictable film in a thriller. Nice characters and the setting where all the story takes place. This is about two teenagers secretly trying to video document one of their neighbours after judging his character through several events of his life. So they place hidden cams in his house, expecting something twist to happen. As the story goes on, they face various troubles and what result they get in the end was a shocker.

I think nicely written film. Not much fuzz about the characters or any events. Though there were some scene that puts the views on the edge of their seats. Overall a nicely made film, either quality or the quantity, totally acceptable. The actors too were good. The kids and then the Jame Caan. The suspense was the backbone of the film. It succeeded on that, but don't anticipate anything bigger. It is a simple, small thriller that's surely worth a try.

7/10
