A bit of a weird shambles all round. I had the pleasure of watching this twice as the first time, due to fatigue, I kept drifting into bouts of sleep for seconds or minutes at a time thereby missing patches of dialogue. Watching it awake was no more illuminating or entertaining. It's been described in other reviews well enough; historical family slaying, re-filming of events by a group of students, dead killer possessing someone involved in the filming, cue fresh set of murders.
The effects are pretty good which certainly lift it above the very low budget end of the scale. It's just not very interesting or scary. It's difficult to quite put my finger on why, it's not that bad there's just not anything particularly good about it. The characters are on the dull side, the dialogue is nothing to write home about and the story is all a bit daft. I'd have to say I wouldn't recommend it. It's suprisingly slow and does nothing to distinguish itself from countless of other similar themed horrors.
