A brother-sister team who fake paranormal encounters for cash get more than they bargained for when a job at a haunted estate turns very, very real. (iMDB)

After a promising if derivative first act, I found this to be a pretty bland slog. It felt like it was created by an algorithm: Set in the '80s for no reason? Check. Found footage? Check. Tons of tracking shots of the lead actress' butt? Check. Torture porn? Check. Congratulations. You've just produced the hottest horror movie of 2006.

This was exactly my take - I even double-checked the release year because it seemed like it MUST have come from an era where the torture porn was more of a thing.

Ugh I felt cheated. I wanted to watch a creepy supernatural haunted house movie. I did not want, and in fact never want, to watch torture porn. It just snuck up on me. Also, did the house not have a phone line? Because at one point someone was like "We should call an ambulance" but then they didn't, and at no point thereafter did it ever occur to any of these dipshits to just call the Scottish equivalent of 911.
