Caster -> Surprisingly decent brit horror (15/2/2013 11:42:58 PM)
Though it offers nothing new (it's basically Paranormal Activity: The 70's Yorkshire Years) there are a few scary bits and the performances are good. Good aspects: the everyday scenes are almost more interesting than the horror/fx stuff, with the two young girls awkwardly making friends a highlight. The bad stuff: the sound design is a tad overdone when the director should have trusted that often silence is far more effective and the old argument 'why don't they just leave' isn't logically explained. The ending is also signposted by every horror film you've seen in the last 40 years. A promising start for the director.

The plot is unoriginal, but it made me jump in my seat twice. The second time I gasped so loudly that the guy next to me turned to the side and asked if I was okay, probably thinking I went into labour as huge as I am now, haha.
