Synopsis:
When a team of ghost hunters agree to be locked inside the derelict building, they quickly realise that slaughtered spirits do not stalk the hallways alone. As the night sky darkens, a mysterious figure (Claudio Pacifico) roams the deserted Manor hunting human flesh. It becomes a race against time for the ghost hunters to uncover the secret of the Manor and, using only found footage from abandoned cameras, for detectives to identify who, or what the killer is, before it's too late for all...

Spoilers follow ... - Dead of the Nite review by NP

Spoiler Alert
13/07/2018

Candyman’s Tony Todd growls his way through the role of Ruber, caretaker to the infamous Jericho Manor. Todd gleefully hams his way through his scenes, but manages never to send up the subject matter.

Two policemen observe footage left behind by a group of internet documentary makers. They have been locked in the Manor overnight and the policemen, Detectives Anderson and Jenkins (Joseph Milson and Gary Mavers) are determined to find out what happened to them. Paul (the essential unsubtle idiot of the group), Jason, Anne-Marie, Sheila (the clairvoyant) and Amanda the hostess with ideas above her station. The cast are enthusiastic but not always convincing, which is a common trait with low budget projects like this. The characters have their flaws of course, but are never as needlessly unlikable as several other groups portrayed in ‘teen’ horror films.

It might be easy to dismiss this as ‘Blair Witch in a haunted building’ – and there is a scene in which Amanda (Cicely Tennant), having been brought down to size by her experiences, records a goodbye message to her parents much like Heather did in the 1999 film – but here the protagonist is not quite spectral. Furthermore, this is not quite a found footage film. It is a film about two Detectives looking at found footage – with that in mind, the addition of jump scares and an incidental score is somewhat explained. And the reactions of Jenkins are very effective.

The twist at the end also really impressed me. The reveal of the killer is very well handled, as is his habit of gently kissing his victims before they die. Good fun.
