5.0 out of 5 stars
A completely disarming and worthwile movie.
Verified purchase
This movie has two horror themes unfolding simultaneously, a spiritual horror story set against the backdrop of possible nuclear war growing more and more immanent. The tension of both circumstances continuously build throughout the film until a dual climax is reached. I found The Unfolding to be chilling and tense throughout with some genuinely unnerving things to contend with as well. The acting is very good, the dialog and scene building is also very good with capable direction by Eugene McGing. The atmosphere is lighthearted and fun until it suddenly turns dark and foreboding. For me there are favorable comparisons with The Exorcist (1973) and Poltergeist (1982) and if you give it a chance you will find yourself drawn in and caring about the characters. I wholeheartedly recommend this movie for a dark and stormy night in your future

Absolutely TERRIFYING in parts! Deserves better ratings.
Verified purchase
I think really a 4.5 but only because the outside "influences" part of it didn't gel with me so much, however the scares sure made up for it. I watch a lot of "scary" flicks and the vast majority are lackluster or dumb - very few I find very good. This one actually has down right TERRIFYING moments. I made the mistake of watching by myself in a dark house since most movies aren't usually creepy - with this one I have jumped up and in a panicked state looked all around me and cowardly ducked under the covers.

Very well done - with the exception of part of the plot of the external piece. But if you are looking for something that will make you scream and jump - this is a good one.

A unique, if flawed, ghost story
Verified purchase
Overall, this movie isn’t too bad. It started off promisingly, and familiarly, enough. I thought the setting in a world on the brink of a nuclear war was an interesting choice. But things just don’t develop quite like you feel they ought to. The nuclear brinksmanship side story ends up distracting from the paranormal events, and even though it is told from the perspective of radio/tv announcements, was honestly scarier than the ghostly happenings, which was unfortunate. Things never quite seem to gel, and it was hard to understand what was going on at times. The buildup to the inevitable denouement felt a bit disjointed, like the movie could have done with a bit more meat on the bone, so to speak. I thought the nuclear stuff was actually genuinely unsettling, but in my opinion, it ended up being the more memorable part of this story.

Enjoyable ghost story
Verified purchase
Enjoyable haunted house movie with a neat tension between what's in the house and what is outside the house in the wider world. I thought the basic non-response of the characters to the crisis in their society was pretty realistic. There were few special effects, but it still had scary bits. The house itself was pretty cool with all sorts of gargoyles and statues and whatnot.

Pretty good flick
Verified purchase
I actually liked this movie. At first it is kinda boring and drags on but once things start happening it grabs you in. I wish all movies didn't have such depressing endings but I guess that is the norm these days. The cinematography is beautiful. And I suppose the ending proves a point and these days it could very well happen. Very good premise and thoughts about the afterlife in this movie.

Don't Waste Your Time
Verified purchase
Anyone who gave this more than 2 stars must not have been watching the same movie I just sat through. I was being generous in my rating, as this movie was boring and unrealistic. I kept checking the time to see how much longer I would have to sit through this dreck. The 2 stars I did give were only because I liked Tam & Harvey.

Just An Overall Bad Experience!
Verified purchase
Bad camera work. Even worse audio. Had to turn my speakers up to 80% to hear most of the movie but they then had parts with screaming that almost blew out my eardrums. I'm just grateful wasn't using my headset to watch this. Just an overall bad experience!

Average Found Footage Style
Verified purchase
Actually despite the occasional shaky camera and I don't know whats happening moments, this movie was pretty good for found footage style. The acting was pretty good. The film quality wasn't always that great and I didn't always see how certain parts of the film related to others, but overall was a pretty decent movie.
