Strange things start happening after a girl is found drowned in a lake.


This film is a totally creative endeavor. That is best viewed without knowing anything about the film in advance. 

This film really catches you off guard. It starts off as a documentary that seems like It’s going to be about a ghost story.

Then it morphs into more of a supernatural tale. Then it becomes an out-and-out mystery.

One can truly appreciate the film as it keeps you on your toes. Never quite knowing where it is going but keeping the audience interested.

At times the film can be scary but is more aimed at telling a believable story. Considering it is a part of the AFTER THE DARK series of films. One might have  expected a more extreme genre-specific horror film. 

Which I believe most will enjoy what you get here. As this is one of the best one of that series of films.

The film keeps you engaged the whole time that you watch it. As you try to figure out the mystery. This feels like what the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY films should be instead of just tedium for 70 minutes and then some action on the last 10.

It is more for an artistic crowd. While not being an aristocratic type film
