A jewel, and absolutely not what you expect.
7 January 2017 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have stated many times that sometimes the biggest gems when it comes to movies, is often the ones you never heard about. This was one of them. Before watching it, I had never heard anything about it.

I'm a fan of the so called 'found footage' genre. So when I read the synopsis of this movie, saying 'experiment', 'haunted', 'camera surveillance', I had already decided to watch it.

Do not worry, I never spoil.

Two friends decide to do an experiment. They want to see if they can make a person believe they are being haunted, without it actually being so. To do so they rig the house of an old man with cameras and some mechanics to simulate the haunting.

This is what the synopsis said, and this is indeed what about 20 minutes of the movie wears out. But then, well... the movie changes. Now because I absolutely do not wish to spoil anything, I won't tell you anything more about the actual plot or story.

The only thing I want you to know is. GO. WATCH. THIS.

I was absolutely blown away by the acting of James Caan, in my opinion this was close to Academy Award Nomination worthy.

I absolutely recommend this movie.
