To cheer up their friend Jordan (Jordan Stopforth), who has just been dumped by his girlfriend (Keearna Lee Westcott), brothers Dylan (Dylan Redshaw) and Bayden (Bayden Ray Redshaw) get roaringly drunk with him, and then they decide to make what they believe is going to be a viral video, a video in which they try to summon the "Thin Man", a local urban legend, and prove that he doesn't exist by his non-appearance. Well, nothing happens during the ritual, and though that might prove just that, that the Thin Man doesn't exist, they're a bit disappointed by the actual lack of action on what was supposed to be a viral video. But when they arrive back home, things do start to happen, scary stuff, there's constant knocking on the door, weird noises, unexplainable occurences ... and then Jordan, who actually passed out on the couch drunk only moments ago, is gone. At first the brothers blame everything on Jordan, suspecting him to play a prank ... but they don't even trust their own suspicions and are scared shitless by what's going on - but finally they think they have tracked Jordan down to the shed, but when they enter ... Bayden disappears into thin air, in a way physically impossible. And now Dylan knows he's up against something he cannot even begin to explain ...

 

One might find in The Thin Man a trace of internet-fame satire, as it shows three guys throwing themselves into harm's way, just for the chance of "going viral" - but actually, the movie is a piece of rather effective found footage horror, and one that gets it right despite probably zero budget (and I will let the filmmaker correct me on that), as it's well-structured, makes the most out of minimal resources, suggests the shocks rather than being overly in-your-face "scary", and really freaks one out the longer it goes. Now admittedly some scenes could have been shortened, especially the set-up of story and characters, and sometimes the low budget does shine through (even if it adds authencity) when scenes are just not lit well enough, but in all, this is one rather creepy little shocker!
