Ahead of its time in a lot of ways. Not perfect but the way it builds the world and makes everything feel so real is really amazing. There's a lot of unanswered questions but the unknown can be scarier than the known. Also being one of the few found footage movies released between the blair witch project and paranormal activity, the scope of this film blows both those two out of the water. It might not be scary to some but that doesnt mean its a bad movie at all
very blair witch like but not really...
Not scary and quite painful to watch. I stayed to the end in the hope it got better. It didn't.
I'd give this about a 3.5. It has some good parts, especially near the end. However, sometimes it's hard to piece together what's going on. It's also pretty slow in some parts; the whole film feels too long. But, if you like supernatural and found footage films, I think you'll really like this one. The found footage aspect is really cool.
