Elliot Goldner directs this British horror following a team of specialists from the Vatican who are drawn to a remote West Country church by reports of mysterious occurrences in the area. Though Father Crellick (Luke Neal) has video footage of items apparently being moved around inside the church by supernatural forces, Deacon (Gordon Kennedy) and Father Mark Amidon (Aidan McArdle) are sceptics by nature and want more conclusive evidence. They duly set up more cameras inside the ancient building, but are the scratching noises coming from inside the walls a source of greater concern?

The chemistry between the leads is great too , although the tech guy is incredible annoying thru out, his athiest views (much like myself) really adds to the story, and the fact he is the one thats believing over the religious others is refreshing.
With many found footage / pov films I'm left bored to death wishing the time away, but with this I wasn't, it kept me interested thru out and I was on edge expecting something to happen, and being on the lookout, but when it didn't happen I wasn't dissapointed I kept on watching thinking/expecting the same from every scene. It's wasn't daft or gimmicky at all, but a very serious subject done extremely well.
So yeah the 'found footage ' film maybe does have some life left in it after all, it's no longer a gimmick but a genre all of its own, which when done well can turn into a really good effort and genuinely unnerving viewing.
The big problem I had with it is the high amount of unanswered questions in the film. Even the dvd packaging has a picture on it that leaves me wondering whether it's supposed to be a comment on one of the characters in the film. The idea that these mysterious "why the hell did that character do that" moments are up to the interpretation of the viewer are not properly earned by the filmakers in my opinion.
Still it's a fairly small criticism on an otherwise great and frightening horror film.
But for me it was let down in the second half.
I thought going in it was going to thrill me but !!!
was a complete let down towards the end.
Haveing said that acting and cinematic photography top notch.
