Nice! Great use of low resolution footage and high resolution together - and explaining it. Great editing and pacing. Not sure whether they are haunted by evil, chemical exposure, or what, but I want to learn more ! Well done!

Reminds me a lot of the Blaire witch project and sometimes like paranormal activity but that was probably what you were going for? needs a bit more creativity but I don't normally like films like these personally, I don't like scary movies :(

Well shot and put together. I don't know why I haven't seen this trailer before today. It does feel very similar to the Blair Witch project - maybe a little too similar.

I like the handheld work and how it compliments the scattered activity later in the forest during night. At first the camera moves seemed a little weak but really complimented the panic like state in the confusion of the characters as though the viewer shares their struggle to figure out what's going on. It sort of makes you feel like you are there rather than just watching it.

I thought this was done by a group of girls without film experience - until I read the overview. And then I thought it must have been intentional to film it in a local park as though it was the girls telling their story, and making it up as they go along.

I thought maybe if I saw how this scary effect was created than maybe it wouldn't be as scary to me anymore. Nope. Still scary. Nice job.

Really like the trailer cause I'm a big Blair Witch Fan, but wished it was about more than four friends in the woods with a camera and evil. It's been done.

This trailer actually looks pretty scary, but it's not well done, and it's not very original.

the blaire witch thing just doesn't do it for me. try to take it easy on all the hand held shaking cam it is effective when used properly.

I am mildly interested in this. I think there is potential for the story. I'm just not sure if the acting will be good enough to override a possible lame plot.

Thanks for the comments everyone! (Both Good & Bad!) It was a lot fun filming this concept trailer! Of course, there's a lot more to the story than what's in the trailer and we look forward to putting together a scary/fun movie for fans of this genre! Be sure to send us out a tweet! (@Dark4Rest)

Is very reminiscent of a script I wrote two years. That said, not bad of its type. Nice to see an all female cast.

Looks like a solid found footage premise with some solid actors. Usually you get neither with a found footage film!
