David (Nicolas Shake) is a vlogger specializing in paranormal investigations, though he's a sceptic at heart, which also shows in his quite cocky attitude. Carol (Chloé Dumas) lives in her grandparents' place in the woods and calls upon David because she thinks the house is haunted - but David soon comes to the conclusion Carol's just a little off the hook as she insists that she's living with her grandma even if she eventually admits grandma's dead but appears to her as a spirit. Plus she apparently wants to have sex with David, which he declines (though it's not quite clear why he's dead set against it as she's rather on the attractive side). All that should be enough to make David leave, but it's when creepy stuff he can no longer explain away happens - like objects moving on their own or Carol's beloved dog turning up slaughtered - that he gets cold feet and eventually makes an escape. Thing is, once back home, he, the sceptic, finds himself haunted by something - but when a medium (Boris Anderssen Comar) tells him it's Carol reaching out to him from the netherworld, he chases him away. And yet he knows, to track down whatever's haunting him, he has to return to Carol's place - and deep down he knows whatever he will find will not be good news ...

 

Ok, by 2017, the found footage approach has been done pretty much to death - but this movie still works, as it doesn't insist on telling everything from a first person perspective but instead relies on good old-fashioned camera angles and editing, and actually tells a more traditional ghost story in a more traditional way - "more traditional" meant in the best possible sense, as the film tells a well-structured and properly creepy story with plenty of suspense and all the jump scares in all the right places. Plus, one can't help but relating to/identifying with the more than fallible protagonists at least to some degree, thanks to both good writing and solid performances.

Well worth your time, actually.
