Excellent slow-burn docuhorror,
This review is from: The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill [DVD] (Audio CD)
I found The Paranormal Diaries to be fascinating and, as a horror film, refreshingly different. Filmed as a docuhorror (i.e. part documentary, part horror) the film draws you into a real-life investigation of the infamous Clophill church in Bedfordshire and delivers its scares after some very effective build-up.
The scariest moments of The Paranormal Diaries are some way into the film. That said they are definitely worth waiting for. The subject matter of the film's documentary core is very creepy and does a great job of engrossing the audience and slowly developing a sense of malevolence before delivering some very chilling scare moments.
As someone that watches a lot of scary films this was a welcome change from the usual formulas. I would highly recommend giving this a watch if you like subtle and intelligent horror that's going to stay with you long after the credits roll.
