How Found Footage Is Supposed To Be!

Usually, I'm not a great fan of 'found footage' films; aside from inevitably having to get used to viewing that's in and out of focus, I often find that, whilst the style lends itself to total realism, the plots can get carried away with themselves and the studios end up relying on underwhelming special effects that don't sit well with the premise (cf. Paranormal Activity/As Above, So Below). For me at least, this tends to ruin the uncanny, creepy nature of this style by robbing itself of its own credibility.

Fortunately, Webcast completely avoids these flaws, rooting itself instead in a fundamentally believable plot and characters. It plays brilliantly off of the concept that we never really know what's going on behind our neighbours' doors, particularly in the close-knit community setting, whilst delivering a compelling combination of the intriguing and creepy, a sort of Rear Window meets The Wicker Man.

Along with fantastic, truly believable performances from the cast (Redford, Tremain, and Wright in particular), the director (McGhie) also does a masterful job. The pace steadily builds throughout the film (another difficult achievement with this genre that often loses tension through boring explanations or reliance on too many jump scares). The filming and editing style itself even reflects the naturally evolving plot; the quick cuts and choppy edits that help echo the mystery and intrigue at the start of the film are replaced with longer, compelling scenes as Chloe and Ed further unravel the horrifying thread.

All in all, a brilliant first outing for the director, and a wonderful microbidget film that really does become more intriguing and chilling as it goes on; just like a real mystery! If you're interested in supporting original, independent films, then I would highly recommend Webcast.

Creepy AF!

This is not a jump-a-minute flick, more a slow walls-are-closing-in type affair. It feels real, the acting is great. The ending was somewhat confusing, but I having given it some thought (watched yday), I much prefer something ambiguous to soemthing that serves everything up in a neat little bundle.

And the neighbours... are creepy as hell.

Just what Low Budget Horror should be

I'm a huge fan of films like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity - and quite clearly, so is Webcast. Having said that, it's not trying to walk over well-trodden ground, more like stamp over it to create something new from old footsteps.

It also wears it's heart on it's sleeve by giving nods to films like The Wickerman and Rosemary's Baby, but again, it takes those ideas and on, what must be pocket change, tries to expand - and succeeds for the most part.

I found it very frightening at times and very real - and as long as a film in this sub genre can do that, it's worth a watch.
