If you are someone that can't enjoy a film because your expectations were too high, turn back now because I'm about to gush. Don't read this as a review so much as a high recommendation. I can confirm that this film is as great as it appears to be from the trailer. It proves that there is still greatness to be had from the "Found Footage" horror genre. The Houses that October Built is a film about our fascination with wanting to chase after something that feels real. Something that actually scares us and makes us feel like a kid again. Will watching it make you feel that way? It actually doesn't have to, but it may. The point is, there is an impressive enough level of realism here that it should be praised on that alone. There were moments that I felt like I was watching a documentary rather than a found footage horror film which is a testament to the exceptional filmmaking that went into this. I'll leave the synapsis to the trailer. What you see here is pretty much what you're in for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yedl4lY9VgM It keeps you guessing throughout. The events that unfold seem to straddle a fine line between something meant to scare and something more sinister. I hope to come back to this thread at one point and discuss or perhaps defend aspects of this. There is slightly more than meets the eye here in terms of plot and when you consider all the parts that needed to work together. If you were going to compare it to something like Blair Witch, it would be fair to say, this had a lot more planning involved and room for error and so the achievement here could arguably be greater. Blair Witch paved the way for something like this to be made but this handsomely touches the bar that was set.
