X was the real YIt turns out that teenage girls are the real ghosts.

I have mixed feelings about this one. I generally dislike it when movies pretend to be real but I think this movie did it well. The movie genuinely feels like a low-budged Discovery documentary about ghosts.

The story is fairly cliche, and the documentary format is maybe a little boring and I'm sure if I saw another movie like this I would dislike it, but I think enjoyed this one. If only for the novelty, I think I enjoyed this one.
