Paranormal researcher Emilie Price (Kate Marie Davis) has been searching for proof for the paranormal for years now - with little success, but now she receives a bunch of files from a rogue police worker (Keiron Hollett) that are supposed to change that. However, Emilie isn't one to be easily convinced, and even though the portion of the two researchers (Cain Harrip, Dion Cavallaro - segment Tape 26) in the Australian outback tracking down a demon to realize they have become the demon's prey, and the one about the mum and son (Kelly Hylton, Chad Hylton - segment Cemetery) staking out a supposedly haunted cemetery to find out it's actually haunted and they're at the mercy of an urban legend, both look properly convincing, they might be anything from an elaborate hoax to crude trickery, really.

The third video in the files though (The Haunted House of Karl Hendry) is something else: It's about a man, Karl Hendry (Nathan Head) pretty much making a video log of his life, with the focus of moving to his new home. The new house seems to be really great, and Karl especially falls for the vast attic - and the lovingly crafted yet unfinished dollhouse he finds up there - a dollhouse that scares him shitless when he finds a wooden doll in it what hasn't been there before. When his neighbours (Dayna Shuffle, Paul Sutton) tell him his house was the former home to a witch whose daughter had disappeared one day, that doesn't especially calm Karl down, and he soon is sure he hears noises, maybe even voices, from upstairs. He is determined though to find out what's going on - and that might be exactly the wrong decision ...

Genre icon Suzi Lorraine has a voice-cameo as a librarian.

 

Apparition of Evil, one of the very few found footage anthologies (though the framing story is not shot found footage style), is a film that's very clever in its approach to both its found footage and horror aspects: After featuring two (rather well-made and creepy in their own right) rather "traditional" paranormal research films to set up the tone, The Haunted House of Karl Hendry is a pleasantly deceiving little film as it leaves one in the dark about its threat to the end (and delivers a great punchline to the framing story), it's nicely paced, doesn't go for too much spectacle but rather atmosphere, and its beautifully carried by Nathan Head.

In all, a positively creepy affair, and especially the third episode is set to charm even people not too fond of the found footage subgenre.
