8/10.
I like the psychological angle so may def be interested in this one for sure.

I agree. I was shocked without authentic and "full" this movie felt.

YellowBrickRoad is definitively creepy.
The use of sound is original and interesting and may be the movie's best selling point. Also, despite the lack of a clear plot, some very unexpected things happen. So, it isn't dull. The acting is surprisingly good as well. However, it's not terribly original and lacks a substantial conclusion.
It's like if the Blair Witch Project met a slasher movie, took mushrooms and then started randomly playing old 30s records while cutting itself.
I'd give it 7/10

Makes me want tot watch it as well.

BD Selects are ok I guess. I fell asleep on Atrocious twice, so I probably won't be giving that another shot. Rambock was super boring. But The Woman was pretty damn good, and Cold Fish was decent, although way too long. I really want to see The Pack. I'll probably check out Phase 7, and YellowBrickRoad this weekend, since they are on netflix instant.

This was pretty good, a bit super depressing though. I enjoyed it for the most part.

Like I said, a shame because up until it stopped dead halfway through I loved it.
I felt like this, it just didn't transcend some expectations. I enjoyed it, the psychological part was very depressing. There was one scene where the camera was very up close to the girl while she was saying the alphabet backwards. I was looking for some sort of ghost in the camera, that to me was the scariest scene. There might have been twists and turns in the writing that was a tug of war with ideas. There were some good scenes, the ear deafening scene was crazy. I suppose the guy went to hell. This has some shinning and mouth of madness in it.
