It was nice change of pace, but I still don't think it was a very good movie. To be honest, I found myself looking at my cell phone to see how long the movie had been on. Seemed like an eternity sitting there watching a slow building movie with very aggrivating camera use. I know it was suppose to be "actual footage" in appearance, but that really doesn't add to the creepy factor IMO. I don't pay to go see a movie because I want to feel like it is actual footage. There are plenty of those with just as impressive visual effects on YouTube.
I'm a fan of the Psychological horror. I want to feel the fear the characters are feeling. The best example of this is in the Silent Hill video games, especially the first two. If you like horror, I stronly suggest you give one of those games a try, especially Silent Hill 2. If they can make a movie with they same type of psychological toying that these games employ, I would absolutely love it. The Silent Hill movie certainly didn't accomplish this.
One movie I think every one should see is The Orphanage. It is subtitled as it was made in Spanish, but is still a great watch. I absolutely loved that movie.
