review by
Mike Haberfelner

After finishing college, Meagan (Katarina Hughes) has just moved out from her parents' (Stephanie Domini, Travis Peters) house all the way from the West Coast to New York City to start work as a teacher's assistant. And to remain in touch with her folks back home, she starts a video diary, just to let everyone know she's alright. Though after a time, she doesn't seem quite alright anymore, as if obsessed with something. When her best friend from back home (Chelsea Clark) stops over, she merely hints at believing that her home is haunted, and acts weird only occasionaly, but when her brother Stephen (Adam Lowder) comes for a visit, she seems to already be convinced that the spirit of April (Paulina Grochala), former tenant of her apartment who has been brutally murdered only months before Meagan's arrival, has never really left the place and is now requesting her help. This leads to friction between the siblings, so much so that they part on not exactly friendly terms - but it's only when Stephen's gone that things start to really go off the rail ...


Now ok, I'm not the biggest fan of the found footage/mockumentary genre, and I have to admit some of the shaky camera work in this movie was more distracting than anything else - but that said, for the most part the pseudo-documentarial approach and the build-up of tension worked hand-in-hand quite beautifully - and to pretty haunting effect. And Katarina Hughes' very natural performance carries the film really nicely, and she's supported by a solid small ensemble to make this a cool genre entry.
