Apparently created as a university project, Infernal is a short burst of well executed tension. There is no complicated plot, but this is more about enjoying the ride than telling a story. Things start innocuously, with a student working late in his dimly-lit flat. But this abruptly changes with the introduction of supernatural happenings, disturbing sounds, and a couple of well-placed jump scares.
Unusual camera angles and some hand held photography increase the viewer's sense of unease, and as the tension builds, the music becomes increasingly erratic and creepy. It is actually very reminiscent of The Evil Dead (1981) with its use of strings and piano wires, and a scene with animated objects also appears to be an homage to that movie too. There are nods to other films to look out for as well, such as Insidious (2010) and Suspiria (1977).
I enjoyed Infernal. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is. It provides five minutes of tension and scares, and above all, fun. It can be watched online for free on YouTube or below. 3.5
