This feature is teetering on turning into ‘Ten trailers to keep ME awake”. I find the trailer on You Tube, then watch it to make sure it still works and is the best version available, then get creeped out. I’m going to try to start loading and writing about them when it’s still light out, and maybe elaborating a little more when I’m not trying to relax and power-down into sleep mode at 5:00 AM.
Turn off the lights, gather round, get snacks. Then have a vacuum/broom/mop ready for after the movie when everyone’s snacks and/or drinks went flying out of their hands…
When ‘supernatural found footage’ genre films work, they work. When they’re scary, they are fucking scary. This is one o the ones that absolutely, completely worked. So, I saw this trailer several months before the movie was released. You want to see something scary with a group of friends? Here’s a REAL good one. In fact I’d recommend seeing it with a group of friends who all want the hell scared out of them rather than, say, watching it alone after dark, not fully cognizant of the fact that somewhere by the end of the first act, you’ve been paddling your feet to back-pedal and get further away from the movie, ending up slouched WAY down on the couch.* Turn off the lights, gather round, get snacks, then have a vacuum/broom/mop ready for after the movie when everyone’s aforementioned snacks and/or drinks went flying out of their hands and sprayed all over the rec room during one of the (many) big jumps.
Not all the scariest scenes are in the trailer, either (another mistake some supernatural found-footage movies make). That doesn’t mean you should watch the above trailer with the sound cranked up and your face inches from the screen, though, because… well, you’ll see.
