Rob Savage directs Haley Bishop, Jemma Emma Louise Webb and Radina Drandova in this found footage horror where a séance over a Zoom call goes out of control.
Recycles all the tricks quite effectively, and then repackages them into something that just about transcends its gimmicky prescience. Having said that, the cast and their characters are annoying to a hateful degree. Maybe there’s a Texas Chainsaw level pleasure in eventually seeing such a bunch of grating doinks have hell unleashed on them? I don’t think this was the intention though. Revisiting those initial 30 minutes of build-up, spent in the odious company of a conference of yahs’ to get to their comeuppance, isn’t an attractive proposition. A one-watcher.
