I've seen a few negative reviews of this but I thought it was a great little film. Cranked up the tension nicely and you never knew quite what the paranoid army vet was keeping in his basement until they opened the door....

Sadly, when they did the film slid down a fairly well worn path but that aside it ranks as one of the better films I saw at the Fest this year.

I thought this was great, one of my top picks of the fest. The army vet brother and the sister played there roles like they'd had too many red bulls but I liked that, I think it worked well against the more grounded brother character. I also liked the bickering interactions between the older brother and the sister it added a layer of realism. For me this also had the creepiest basement scene of the whole weekend.

The people behaved just like real siblings, which is fairly rare. Honestly one of the better films.

It really felt like they were getting under each other skin didn't it, this was one of the better films for me also as the characters felt real, whole and even though the film felt short and sweet it really kept me entertained. I saw a few taglines likening it to the X-Files (I really dislike Marketing / distribution departments doing this) and upon viewing I think they got that comparison right.
Horror films don`t create fear. They release it...
