The screenwriting and directing duo of Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz
has concocted a diabolical hybrid — a movie that taps into the current
indie horror fascination with real slow-building chills, rather than a
slavish adherence to the trend of the moment, found footage, which
thankfully is exiting the frame, but with formal filmmaking nods to the
psychology of evil that we’ve seen in the recent works of Michael Haneke
(The White Ribbon, Funny Games).
