One of my favorite found footage/mockumentary horror films
Your enjoyment of this movie is entirely dependent on how attached you are to the characters and the rules the story sets up. If you liked lake mungo you're going to love this.
Pretty interesting. It had some unsettling visuals and it kept a consistently creepy tone and atmosphere held throughout. I thought the format of the footage put together like a documentary was a unique way to tell the story and push the narrative. I liked that there were no jump scares.
Well worth taking the time to watch. One of the best found footage movies I've seen.
