Rating: 5 out of 5.

I fully enjoyed this film. Even though it’s deemed a horror film, I didn’t get that feel. There were creepy elements but nothing over the top scary. It reminds me of a mix of the Craft and Carrie. The difference is that this film was filmed mostly from Claire’s view as a journalist as well as from security cameras, which made it unique.
