didn't know what to expect from this movie, but the description looked intriguing, so I went for it. what an amazing ride! absolutely terrifying. it's in a mockumentary style and it works so well that I kept forgetting this movie was not a documentary. really a nice surprise. the 'documentary' footage is brilliantly done as are the scary lab scenes. will definitely make you jump. I did a few times and scared myself further :D the cast is really good and particularly Rya Kihlstedt and William Mapother deliver very strong performances. You feel for the main characters and <more>
shudder as you realize the tragedy of their situation.
One of the best documentary type films i've seen (by jmigoya)
This films is basically a reviewing of archived Psychic experiments that went horribly wrong, but it is done so well at times you think its real, you can tell the budget was not huge but it didn't matter because they used it wisely almost to the point of brilliantly, so the story unfolds as an interview type documentary on several scientists while showing the archived videos of the experiments, a bunch of Psychic researchers do simple experiments on hundreds of subjects with little to no real definitive results, they are almost at the end of their funding when a woman walks in and <more>
volunteers for testing, she is barely coherent at times but in that very 1st day she proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Psychic abilities are real, in the process of showing the videos and talking about the events, they show the real Black and White videos of the Russian woman that proved she could move small objects with her mind these video clips are real not part of the movie videos , but this woman that they are testing now is beyond any subject that has ever been tested, suffice to say, things turn from bad to worse real quick, there is real tension throughout the film, the acting is fantastic, the ending felt slightly rushed but over all this was great, it's different and it's scary at times because the story is told in a multi layered type fashion to add realism, the interviewer is asking questions to a person that was present, you see their reactions as they are responding and sometimes showing the actual videos as they are still explaining and then show their afterthoughts, it was great, that's my opinion, you see Hollywood spending $100 million plus of films that end up being crap and you see films like this that the story drives the experience at a fraction of the budget, story telling at it's best, I do have to say that I'm bias in the sense that Psychic powers and Psychic research type films has always interested me tremendously so on films like this one, Chronicle, Scanners or even The Fury 1978 are always going to receive a high score from me if done well, and all those films mentioned including this one are scores of 10 in my book
These movie deserves to be rated 10 out of 10 .... it is so scary and I am hardly to be impressed ... on the other hand this movie doesn't show us what is this dark entity and how it possessed her and how easy after she was recovered they set her free and they assumed that doctor Henry was dead did they really looked for him or they just killed him because he has known too much and why the institute was closed after that. The producer should make another part of this movie to clarify what was this entity.The last thing I doubt is if this movie was based on a true event. Why was Dr.Henry <more>
was the only one to be possessed and I didn't get it what about the officer that was connected to the TV what was they wanted to do.
I'm the kind of a horror movie viewer who wants the occasional scare but doesn't like too much gore or disgusting content. To me the best horror is something that's realistic and sneaks up on you slowly building up towards the end. For this reason I've grown fond of horror movies filmed as if they we're documentaries made by the people involved in the incidents that occur. I can even watch the gory parts if the movie isn't about the gore but about really truly scaring and creeping you out till your skin crawls and you have this feeling like something is itching on the <more>
back of your head.Good examples of this kind of horror genre are Paranormal Activity and Rec and their sequels. The Atticus Institute in my opinion follows in their footsteps and is really under-appreciated and underestimated. I gave this movie 9 out of 10 points because it is almost perfect in it's subtlety and unsuspecting, almost drama resembling beginning that incorrigibly moves towards an irreversible unnerving ending.The movie skillfully avoids overdoing it and relies on the weight of the threat evoking fears in the viewers mind about what is really out there or should I say below us. It's effectiveness is in the very simple truth revealed to us that this was overseen and documented by the very government which admitted that this was something they couldn't explain in any other way than this being an actual demonic possession. The accounts of the research scientists, family members and the government investigators or soldiers are convincing and serious as the story unravels towards the only possible outcome: destruction.
Absolutely fantastic. So real, and so close to the true story! (by yourmumisawhore)
This is one of those films that are,unfortunately,overlooked by so many people.It's not a massive film,it's low budget and wasn't in the cinema not to my knowledge,anyway . The film was shot as if it was a documentary,and I think it was done very well,almost like the film 'The Devil Inside', although I did not think much to that. Anyway, 'The Atticus Institution' is great. It is different to many horror films we get lately. It's deliverance is better,and more real. And at times,you forget you are watching a film. The fact this is based very much so on true <more>
events makes this so much more real to the viewers. Although it didn't actually scare me,I can see how this film can scare some people,as the events that happen in this film are...well,scary as anything. I would advise anyone to watch this, it's a great film, and I would even watch it again.
Seriously how can you hate this movie?Clever, interesting and original The Atticus Insititute gets a thumbs up from me, hats off to writer and director Chris Sparling. Filmed as a mockumentary, it initially revolves around telekinesis and one particularly gifted woman, Judith Winstead. Rya Kihlstedt who plays Judith gives a brilliant and totally believable performance.I really don't want to say much and spoil any of it, I'd just say give it a go.How many noses does a monkey have?
Above average mocumentary you'll wanna see more than once (by leon-smoothy)
It surprises me the low average rate this movie has. The multitude of films out there that's not even watchable to the end about similar subjects are huge, yet many has got a higher rating. I don't know if the crowd watching this "low/middle-budget" film are expecting more blood and guts or what? This is quite a scary movie in the way that it deals with a subject actually practiced on a large scale by the CIA in the late 60-mid 70's. It's no fiction, Clinton even apologized for "the hundreds of thousands of civilians, mental patients, prisoners and military <more>
personnel abused by the government's in experiments" among other projects the s.c "MK-ULTRA" . There is a lot of lies flying around the net about these experiments, but what makes this movie interesting is that even Reagan admitted to consulting mediums and I don't really know the American term for it "far-seers", people who claimed they could see Soviet activity from USA through their minds, and had used it for his decision-making. That's more than a bit worrying, and it's basically what this movie deals with.It's a well made movie, scary for those knowing what dealing with the occult from a "scientific" point of view or any other could result in. The actors all do a credible job, and it deserves being watched. One of the better movies on this subject made.
I absolutely loved this movie! I know it's a "mockumentary" but I feel the cast really put themselves into the characters...I'm no critic or expert, just your average Josephine Schmo who loves the creepy and scary, with an otherwise sunny disposition...the character of Judith Winstead was beautifully played, along with all the other characters. This movie made me wish and want to believe The Atticus Institute was real, that Judith Winstead was a real person, much in the vein of The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I see a lot of reviews that speak of the movie starting out great and <more>
then falling flat, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, that I firmly believe and respect. I will tell anyone reading this that I've had this movie on my dvr for a while now and the whole family knows not to erase mommys favorites! For me, this movies is a keeper for those times when you want to sit and immerse yourself in the creepy, scary, paranormal, supernatural, what have you...a great movie to give you the willies if you just let yourself enjoy it!
