review by
Mike Haberfelner

Deeply affected by the tragic death of his mother, Jacob (András Korchmáros) decides to turn his back on city life and move to the country. And he soon finds a house for a price that's pretty much a steal, and despite the reservations of his girlfriend (Kata Kuna), who urges him to reconsider, he soon moves in - and he enjoys living in the middle of the woods and pretty much being all on his own - though it's not long until he realizes he's not nearly as alone as he might think: At first it's just a scarf that pops up again at random spots in the forest, and later even at home, then it's crosses made from sticks and little lanterns as if making up a mock graveyard, then threatening notes on his doorstep, and ultimately a locked door inside the house is suddenly open and reveals a dark secret.

And eventually, Jacob has disappeared, and his brother (Péter Inoka), his friends and family, and even the police try to make sense of it. And it soon turns out there was a reason Jacob's house was as cheap as it was ...

Eric Roberts plays Jacob's elusive stepfather, Shawn C. Phillips voices the police dispatch.

 

A mockumentary/found footage hybrid that other than so many movies of this ilk, really puts an emphasis on structure and thus manages to properly set things upin the first act, thus giving everything that follows meaning, and with meaning come tension and suspense. And an emphasis on atmosphere and playing up the mystery angle of the story make this one a cool piece of genre cinema, also helped of course by solid performances.
