review by
Mike Haberfelner

Max (Tom Wheatley) has shot to a certain fame as a YouTube psychologist, who despite doubtful qualifications tries to relieve people of their innermost fears on his show. And for his new edition, he has found agoraphobic Sarah (Christine Randall), who hasn't left the house since the dead of her daughter and blames it all on Green Eyes, a vengeful spirit from local lore that tries to lure its victims into the "endless woods". Of course, Max believes none of that story, and consequently he also wants to cure Sarah of her superstition. But that doesn't work out quite as well as can be, as while Sarah approves of Max as a man, she doesn't approve of his methods, which also create a rift between Max and his girlfriend and camerawoman Nicole (Nicole Miners), so much so that she leaves - but Max soon replaces her with one of Sarah's friends, lively Penny (Emily Booth), even if she sticks up for Sarah more than Max would like, so much so that she makes up a ruse to convince Max that there's a grain of truth in Sarah's superstitions. With little success. But also with Penny's help, Max makes real progress with Sarah overcoming her agoraphobia - but in the end he has to learn just because you don't believe in the supernatural doesn't mean it's not there ...

 

As found footage films go, this is certainly a very interesting one, as it makes the shooting style an integral part of its story, and presents the protagonist not just as a guy with a camera but a manipulator, one who tries to steer the narrative, and only eventually fails. Also great care is put into moving away from the found footage-typical over-reliance of shakey camerawork to double for suspense and instead an actual effort is put into creating atmosphere. Also nicely fleshed out characters embodied by a very able cast help to make this into one cool genre movie.
