Director: Olatunde Osunsanmi. Cast: Milla Jovovich, Will Patton, Elias Koteas. 98 min. Rated PG-13. USA/UK. Horror.
The opening looks like an extremely dumb imitation of The Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity, force-feeding us every minute that the story is based on true events - to the extent of disconnecting us from the dramatized sections. But then, some actual documented clips and recordings start becoming scary, until midway through the movie, I experienced one of the most frightening moments in cinema ever (i.e. the bedroom sequence). After watching the movie, a little research into the factual basis of the events made me realize again the sheer power of movies to create an emotional response.
(Warning: Do NOT research the factual basis of the movie before watching it. You'll see why.)
