Thomas keeps the tension high throughout most of the movie, even if some of his scare tactics can feel redundant.

Featuring strong performances and excellent effects work, The Vigil is a genuinely creepy debut which explores the ways in which our psychological demons can get their claws into our entire lives.

Mostly The Vigil feels like a novel short film stretched out to feature length.
