‘We had no business being here’
A mockumentary, seeking to uncover exactly what happened when a tragedy at a haunted house attraction resulted in the deaths of 15 people. Eyewitness reports and visitor videos from that night had not shed much light on the mystery, but then a survivor comes forward with footage from the days preceding the tragedy – documenting the five organisers getting ready for opening night, in the midst increasingly strange happenings.
I found most of the main five characters very likeable, which does help draw you in to the story. That said, the fact they stay in the house after some of the insane things they witness kind of makes me think they deserve whatever is coming to them!
Found footage haunted house movies are a dime a dozen, and this isn’t one of the very best – but it is definitely worth a watch. The meta twist of the haunted house in question being set up as a novelty haunted house attraction is fun, and there are plenty of strong and well executed jump scares.
