Pros: Very original idea. I`m usually not really a fan of found footage films but I really liked this. It provided great scares and great humor throughout. The actors did a great job and you could really tell that they knew how mockumentary characters are supposed to be; fun and over the top.

Cons: The only problems I had with this film are that the dialogue seemed a bit forced at times and the two interview scenes seemed to drag on a bit. Nothing major though.

Other Thoughts: This is honestly one of the best short horror films I`ve seen. Keep up the good work.

Pros: I was very skeptical when I read the "found footage" style as it has been done so much, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed this a lot. The dialogue was funny and the actors did very well throughout almost the entire film. The story line was decent as well. This being a found footage style actually worked very well in the concept.

Cons: I would have given 5 stars if it were not for a couple of items. One was the sound. There were a number of areas that the sound was not very good. The sound was good when the subject was directly in front of the camera, but if they were a few feet back, it was much less so. The shot of the 2 people in the first interview is a good example. I also think the scene with the priest had too many back and forth cuts. A couple of shots of the 2 of them would have broken it up. I think the sound could have been a little better in those specific instances. I know found footage is supposed to have that home video sound, but many of them take some liberties to make it better. Finally, the climax was a little off. The acting with the final death was not very well done and could have really sealed the movie. If the acting is not there, even having the "demon" stand in front of the camera and kill him where we cannot see it and the victim drops to the floor would be a possible solution.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this was an extremely well done film and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I laughed many times and could watch it again. I actually enjoyed everything up to the final climax even more. I could have watched that for another 20 minutes. Well done and I cannot wait to see more from you.

Future Winners

Once IndieFilmShare is established and running smoothly, one of the visions is to award prizes. These prizes would be to the person with the highest rated film as well as the person with the most reviews. We would like to do this on a monthly basis to promote great films and constructive feedback. We will keep everyone updated on the website as well as through twitter.

A site for independent filmmakers to submit their independent film for peer reviews. Indiefilmshare was created for independent filmmaking and to give independent filmmakers a place to display their work and receive reviews from peers on how to make their work better and in return become a better independent filmmaker. Independent film is an art that improves with constructive criticism and learning from various filmmaking tips. The main focus of the site is on reviews of films and not necessarily on the films themselves. This allows filmmakers to become better and not just a showcase of their films. We hope to see all of the indie filmmakers from this site improve and become the type of filmmaker they always wanted to be. We also hope to see our filmmakers labor be recognized to a broader audience. Best of luck and look forward to seeing all of your work on this short films website.
