  • Such a good film by 9

    My family and I enjoyed this film from beginning to end. We were looking for a fun movie night film and this film did not disappoint! We really liked the acting, the story and directing. Directing from the standpoint the film moved along at a good pace without becoming boring. Terrific job everyone!.

  • This film was real too- real boring... by 3

    I tried to like this movie. Hoodman was not really scary nor suspenseful. Too bad because it had potential but it's just a really boring film...

  • Great Female Actors by 8

    Although this is a lower budget film it is well edited and strongly acted. The female leads, Madison Spear and the young sister are excellent. Enjoyed the film. Should be remade with the same cast and a higher budget.

  • A Late-Nighter With Drama and a Hoodman by 7

    Just what I needed last night: some creepy late-night horror-esk / mystery / drama with an all-around solid cast. A bit of a slow burner. Nicely shot. I kind of wished for more scenes with Hoodman, but I think the movie wanted to lean more on the drama side. I also dug the actor who played the detective.

  • the hoodman without... by 5

    Manhood, and a sound boom operator suffering from a myalgic shoulder some 16 minutes into movie do put some sore scratches on the whole impression of this horror flick, based on the true urban legend of the hoodman, of the modern version of the ratcatcher of hameln who enthralled all the children to come dancing in his footsteps, a film that may awake some nightmares of people having just lost their beloved small ones, or may be just nonsense to others, allthough i belong to the second cathegory, the makers did a remarkable twist at the bitterend of the story, that may become a sequel as well.

    Well will i see that, not onless they use me as a consultant to move the weed of glitchery filmaking within the horror genre. The acting has two plusses, the main female actress seems reasonable realistic in her acts, and the childactor, do seem to have no fear at all staying in front of the cameralense, in day, as well as the dark, a good rookie performance really.the rest though are at average, and the parent caracters are just terrible from a to z.

    Production is fairly good, the ambient music goes quite thrillingly hand in hand, and the camerawork is duable, though at some stages ,what hides in the dark stays in the dark, e.g. Darkfilming is really a serious task to take on to make your nerves rise. Also the storyline are pretty generic and straightforward urban legend style, and the solution to everyones problems is plotted in a very dact conclusive way, just expressing,'' now its over'', me sitting there as a questionmark howcome and when did that happen.

    Dont shade away from this american wysterious horror film, it has the grip on you if you want to, though the grumpy old man survived the ordeal to the glittering prize, or was it due to the caffein capsules i had for breakfast...
