Reviews [click links to read more]:

On the whole, this is a rather enjoyable and engaging found-footage effort which has some minor problems inherent in the setup due to its origins in the format although they aren’t all that detrimental overall.” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation

“One of the better aspects here is the fact that the film’s presentation, where it’s the behind-the-scenes setup of the group for the show, provides a lot to really like. Seeing the team doing their preparations here with the discussions relating to what case to attempt, providing background information on what they’re testing and explaining the cause of each step for the tested ritual gives this a nice creepy sense that’s quite fun to watch.” GL84

“Unlike so many others that save everything for the last 10 minutes, Mills is unleashing the scares by the halfway mark. Which is restrained compared to his other films, but as noted, not bad for this kind of film.” Voices from the Balcony
