Highly enjoyable and creepy effort
7 November 2016 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Arriving in a small Ohio town, a TV crew sent to document a reclusive Amish sect instead come to find that the passing of a town figure thought to be a powerful witch sets off a storm of paranormal activity and must help them try to rid the spirit before they're all targeted.

This here turned out to be quite a decent and surprisingly enjoyable effort. What makes this one quite enjoyable is the fact that this one really manages to make for a truly coherent reason for the found-footage aspect of the potential show they're filming. Looking into the practices of a reclusive and isolated sect of this particular community makes for a solid enough premise to be this type of found-footage effort, and the footage shot at the beginning where they go about amongst the community sets up their particular brand of lifestyle as an interesting one with a lot of great points that get twisted around later on. Those turn into quite decent and chilling hauntings at times, nicely starting out with simple events like the knocking on the doors and finding hand-prints on the windows to much more impactful and chilling as there's the series of furniture-arranging and flashing images of people running around outside which makes for a rather fine start-up to the later scenes which are much more intensive and chilling. The bedroom scenes showing the one girl getting possessed and forced out into the rest of the house to rearrange the furniture and culminating in the burning scarecrow outside their door which is a rather fun series of encounters throughout here, and once they review the footage for the girls the next day seeing what really happened makes for one of the more effective and creepy scenes in the film as a whole. The final half here, where the supernatural antics are greatly increased with the added spiritual desecrations featured here alongside the chilling actions of the girls getting supernaturally forced into different accidents in the different houses which are being caught on great angles by the hidden cameras all really mesh together to give this one a rather enjoyable and high-energy series of action scenes that bring this to a nice finish quite well. These here manage to give this one enough to hold it out over the few flaws that are found here. The main issue here is the fact that there's quite a limp and rather tame finale, with the meeting in the diner really ending this one on a rather pedestrian finish. Considering the frantic action that leads up to it beforehand, there's a rather weak ending to this one that is quite confusing and makes for a downbeat and confusing entry. The only other factor against this one is the seemingly different viewpoint it has towards what's causing the supernatural action throughout here, giving several different answers for what's happening that contradict each other which doesn't get fully resolved until the end, and it really gives this a scatterbrained mentality at times when it can't decide what's going on. These here are what holds this back.

Rated Unrated/R: Violence.
