    A surprisingly entertaining and spooky, if a bit meandering horror film from Ireland. It's essentially a clinical trial gone wrong type of story. It's pretty straightforward, plays out exactly what you'd expect. Although it's not entirely groundbreaking or anything, there's some excellent visual flair which I really appreciate. It does a good job at making you feel confined and uneasy. It's also packed with some decent scares which quite unexpected for this kind of horror. The performances are decent enough to keep this running, and despite it being on the slow side, it never outstays its welcome.

It's like taking a good short film and stretch it out needlessly. The experience of going through 'spooky' internet videos and playing it constantly evoke a good sense of discomfort, but it can't quite make for a compelling narrative. The story may be relatable to some audience but it's clear I'm not part of those audience.

    A ridiculously overstuffed mess. Such an ambitious and interesting concept but they turn it into an unbelievably dreary, overstuffed, and poorly put together slog. How can a film this poorly put together deserve anything higher? As far as found footage films go, there's got to be some logical reason for the camera to be present but not on this film. I found the choice of non-linear storytelling to be very strange as it's mostly ineffective when applied to the subgenre.…
