I didn't see this live because...well, I live in the USA, but I do have it on DVD. I thought it was pretty effective. Until the end when the ghost invades the TV studio (I think I'm remembering that correctly?).
But that's the problem with pretty much all these "real" footage style movies, the endings are always lacking. Paranormal Activity sees to have pulled it off the best, but still that last lunge at the camera is pretty cheesy.
On Ghost in the Machine the writer said their original ending was going to be to imply the evil from the house had managed to escape through the TV in to every house viewing it. I don't know how they would have pulled that off but that would have been excellent.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
