Maybe the best found footage movie of all time ! Yah I said it. This movie is consistently engaging in from the start to the very end, had me on ease for pretty much the whole time. It’s really as good as everyone says
This is an unsettling film... not a “scary” film in the modern, jumpy sense. However, it lingers with you after you’ve watched it. A slow-burning, yet thoroughly rewarding (in a disturbing way) film. Definitely worth your time if you like a creepy atmosphere and a mystery.
The best found footage film out there. If you watch just one in your life, let it be this one. If you're sick of the genre, try this one. This movie rewards you for paying attention, and connecting the dots of the intersecting storylines. I wish I could delete it from my brain so I could see it for the first time again.
Found footage gold *****
