Shot well, some good scares. The scenery and plot is cool. The shadows are really scary!
Seen it all before in so many other low rated horror/thrillers, nice scenery though. It's a shame that yelling and swearing can be considered dramatic acting for some who can't act.

Paranormal horror that entertains above its weight class
Director Dee McLachlan's Out of the Shadows falls into the paranormal horror drama genre and plays with the traditional ingredients necessary for creating a typical entry into this sector of horror. However, McLachlan Shadows uses some key techniques to differentiate her latest film from the rest of the paranormal segment, while retaining some roots of what makes this type of horror so popular. One of the best things about Out of the Shadows is the cast. Lead actors Kendal Rae and Blake Northfield fit into the roles of Katrina and Eric perfectly. Their performances build and bounce off one another, creating genuine on-screen chemistry, that sells the audience on their relationship. Katrina's delusion, and Eric's disbelief evolve naturally and organically, and the effect their actions have on one another doesn't feel rushed. On the production side of things, the cinematography work is beautiful. From the many shots of the Australian land scape, to unique camera angles when filming the actors and paranormal forces, it seamlessly adds an additional layer to the story. The cinematography aids in expressing the isolation and helplessness felt by Katrina as she attempts to convince Eric that she isn't crazy. The sound engineers did an excellent job creating the sounds and voice of the demons. Paired with the excellent sound work are the realistic practical and special effects, which blend well with one another and don't seem cheap or cheesy. Additionally, the sound track instills fear in the audience and heightens moments of suspense and shock. Overall, Out of the Shadows is a well-produced, entertaining paranormal horror, that punches above its budget and thoroughly entertains and captivates audiences.
