Comments: Bryan and Karla Marks paranormal investigators travel to the Devil’s Well.
Karla has disappeared. The film is done by interviewing the family of Karla and her friends. This is a found footage flick as we are shown footage from Karla’s camera.
The interviews go on and on. They do indicate that something supernatural may have occurred.
One year later Bryan gets the group known as S.I.G.N.S. – Supernatural Investigators of the Greater Northeast to go back to the Devil’s Well.
This movie does move along very slowly. The team does explore a building and in it is a well. The place is creepy and they are there at night. The movie picks up and grabs your attention as it nears the end. The action and the killing starts. What is it for though?
The film will have you briefly thinking could this be real but only briefly.
