Punishment Park (1971)

"Punishment Park" is a pseudo-documentary purporting to be a film crews's news coverage of the team of soldiers escorting a group of hippies... (91 mins.)
Director: Peter Watkins
“ This is not a horror movie, but mockumentary about a group of hippies, who are hunted down by police officers and national guard in an infamous Punishment Park, a desert ground for those, who are accused of presenting a great danger to national security. Punishment Park is fictional story, but it delivers an important message of how the goverments all over the world are trying to limit freedom of speech and critical thinking. Disturbing movie, but it makes you think about the world we're living in.

Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

During a rescue mission into the Amazon rainforest, a professor stumbles across lost film shot by a missing documentary crew. (95 mins.)
Director: Ruggero Deodato
“ Another tough one. This is a pioneer of found footage horror movies, despite the fact that the first part is shot in traditional way. The story involes a group of researchers who stumble across a camera in the wild forests in South America. The footage is later shown as a video prove of what happened to a group of journalists who went to the jungle on a search for cannibalistic tribes. Bear in mind this is very violent and disturbing movie with scenes of explicit violence towards humans and animals. Overall; the movie is not that bad. It has a strong message about true "savages" hidden inside of us and leading us to do horrible things. I won't say I like this movie, but at the same time I can't say there is something wrong with it. I just don't like torture porn stuff, that's all.

Man Bites Dog (1992)

A film crew follows a ruthless thief and heartless killer as he goes about his daily routine. But complications set in when the film crew lose their objectivity and begin lending a hand. (95 mins.)
“ A lot of people are saying this is one of the best movies of all time. I disagree. While it's not bad and has a perfect combination of black humor and brutal violence, it's just not working for me on the same level as any other great film. The main problem I have with this movie is that it's trying to be "too artsy". I didn't expect to see some hard-boiled cowboy doing a rampage around the town, but sometimes I felt like the dialogs are there just to fill the time and nothing more. Instead of going "straight-to-the-point" it's just staying at one spot without any explanation. And there's also one personal remark I have; I hated every damn character in it. Really really hate.

Ghostwatch (1992 TV Movie)

The BBC gives over a whole evening to an 'investigation into the supernatural'. Four respected presenters... (91 mins.)
Director: Lesley Manning
“ This is not found footage horror, but more like a "live" broadcast of a TV show with ghost hunters. Trust me, it's not as boring as it sounds; this is not a typical ghost hunt show, where the hosts are jumping in the air at every damn natural sound... it's creepy, well acted and has a lot of hidden "easter eggs". I won't say it's the best ghost movie out there, but it's pretty much as good as it gets.

Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County (1998 TV Movie)

After a mysterious blackout, a son goes out to investigate and captures footage of actual aliens. When the aliens follow him and his brothers back to their home, all hell breaks loose. (93 mins.)
Director: Dean Alioto
“ This movie is reconstruction of infamous MacPherson Tape, which has one of the most disturbin video documents of alien invasion. Some people say it's fake, some say it's true... I don't know, to be honest. All I know is that this movie kicks ass! We rarely see good alien found footage movies and this one is a winner in my book! It starts as a family drama with introduction to the characters, which we care about and continues as intense sci-fi thriller with aliens attacking the family and some of its members fighting back. It's a TV movie but in some scenes is more scary than most of extreme movies out there. Along with The Blair Witch Project, REC, Paranormal Activity this is one of the best found footage flicks out there. Pure gold!

The Last Broadcast (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
A film crew ventures into the forest in search of the mythical 'Jersey Devil'. (86 mins.)
“ There are still endless debates about which movie came out first; The Blair Witch Project of The Last Broadcast. It's understandable why so many people compare these two movies, but to be honest... they don't have that much in common. Yes, there are both happening in the woods but that's pretty much it. The Last Broadcast is more a mockumentary about two eccentric filmmakers, who are trying to rise up the ratings for their own obscure TV show by making a live broadcast of a hunt for infamous Jersey Devil. After couple of days both of them are killed and the main suspect is a strange young man, pretending to have supernatural powers. The purpose of this documentary is to show what really happend to both filmmakers and who is responsible for their deaths.

So, enough about the story, let's talk about actual movie; it's... okay. Nothing special, to be honest. Sure, the background for the movie is fascinating but execution is so-so. I had a problem when the movie was repeating the same damn thing over and over again and after a while I had a feeling like the developers didn't knew what to do with a given material. What about the ending? I must admist; it was stupid, pointless and jump from POV to traditional filming was a big letdown.

Overall, the movie is okay. Not good, but not bad either. It's just a shame how much good material was wasted for no good reason.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A documentary exploring the life of the Blair Witch and the three missing student filmmakers. (44 mins.)
“ This documentary is a prologue to the infamous horror movie The Blair Witch Project. It's 40 minutes long and explains some of the mystery behind the events we've witness in the movie, so it's useful not only for hardcore fans of TBWP, but for anyone who likes creepy documentaries with unique storytelling and some pretty decent scares.

The Blair Witch Project (1999)

Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind. (81 mins.)
“ An ultimate horror classic and one of the best found footage movies I've ever seen. The story is simple; in 1994 three students go to the woods to shoot a documentary about a local witch and after a couple of days they dissapear without a trace. What I like about this movie is that it shows you don't need gore, special effects and CGI to make an effective and scary horror. All you need is convincing actors, creepy atmosphere and the presence of unknown entity, who is haunting the woods. This is a perfect example of found footege movie done right.

The St. Francisville Experiment (2000)

Four young people spend a night in a haunted mansion. (79 mins.)
Director: Ted Nicolaou
“ One of the earliest copycats of The Blair Witch Project but instead of witches and woods this movie has to deal with ghosts and paranormal investigations. My first time watching it was truly a painful experience... maybe I expected too much or something, but on 2nd viewing I began to enjoyed it for what it was. It has a decent creepy atmosphere and some nice jump scares from time to time, but I'm still annoyed with that psychic chick; she's very very irritating at times and moaning over and over again about nothing. Yeah, woman... we need to find a white light... we already know that, move on!

On December 31, 1999, four people entered a house located in the Blacklands of Texas to investigate supposed supernatural activity... (85 mins.)
Director: Richard Catt
“ This movie is really hard to find. It was availabe on You Tube some years back, but now it's gone. I had a chance to see it and... I hate it the first time, but 2nd time I kind of began to appreciate it. It's a very low budget horror movie about a cursed house in Texas and four people, who get killed there on new year's eve of 1999. It's good for what it is; the acting is avarage, but some scenes are creepy and the whole background about the gates of hell in the middle of the desert is good enough for me. Worth watching if you can find this somewhere.

The Dark Area (2000 Video)

Five friends get lost in the woods. Soon one by one gets killed by a mysterious person... (80 mins.)
Director: Oliver Hummell
“ Sometimes I gave certain movies a 2nd chance and The Dark Area, the german copy of The Blair Witch Project - was one of them. The first time I watched it on You Tube and I realised it was only a super fast cut with 25 minutes of all footage. Do yourself a favor and don't watch it, because it really does injustice to the movie. I watched the whole thing now and I must admit that this movie is not that bad. However, there are still a couple of things I didn't like about this flick;

1. The plot about a couple of kids who are wondering in the woods while being hunted by a serial killer is acceptable, but the director never really develops it. Even if you're being careful on detalis, you'll still see many plot holes in the whole story. For example: who is the killer in the woods and what are his motives? They never really explained that, which is fine to add some mystery to it, but if you don't give us not a single clue of what's going on, nobody will care.

2. The acting is very very avarage at best. Since I'm a no-budget filmmaker myself, I understand that you should be glad that someone wants to spare some time for star in the movie, I can forgive this. It's not a horrible acting, but don't expect much.

Now; the things I liked;

1. The atmosphere of the dark woods is superb and because of that there were some decent creepy scenes here and there.

2. The sound effects were repetitive, but decent enough.

3. The shrine with weird branches was a nice touch.

So overall; while this movie suffers from serious problems, I still think it's not that bad. It's decent enough to watch, but don't expect too much from it.

Director: Joe Castro
“ Very cheap and hilariously bad found footage take on the legend of a mexican monster Chupacabra, who looks more like a guy, dressed in a cockroach suit. Maybe the movie wouldn't be so bad if they never really show the monster and just leave her to our imagination. Avoid.

August Underground (2001 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.8/10 X  
Two serial killers go on a murdering rampage as one films the outcome from behind a video camera. (70 mins.)
Director: Fred Vogel
“ This movie is hard to review; it's one of the most notorious and disturbing movies of all time, it's even more disgusting and shocking as Cannibal Holocaust or Salo. August Underground is very realistic simulation of a snuff film, some kind of home-made video diary of two serial killers who like to follow and slowly torture their victims. For the most of the time we're seeing just this; very extreme torture porn, combined with scenes of random things (killers visiting the graveyard, slaughterhouse, rock concert etc.). So... how disturbing this movie really is? To be honest; I'll say it's on the same level as Saw and Hostel, so you're not going to se nothing new here; people are naked and covered with blood and... that's it, nothing amazingly shocking. But more than gore scenes I liked scenes where killers are walking around and do random stuff. What's the point of that scenes? I think Vogel is trying to show that serial killer are not you trypical retarded redneck mutes but everyday people who likes to screw around. It's kind of scary, if you think about it... and for those, who are saying that violence in this movie is disgusting - that's the point. This movie doesn't glorify violence, because it shows what torture and killing really is; something disgusting and disturbing. I admire Vogel for going to extremes, but at the same time I wish this movie had more story to acomplish this goal.

Strawberry Estates (2001)

A small expedition explores a haunted insane asylum! (100 mins.)
Director: Ron Bonk
“ Let's get with good points first; the background story of a haunted mental asylum is interesting and it seems the developers put a lot of effort in creating a convincing ghost story and I also liked some of the dialogue about the existence of God, the purpose of religion and how spiritual world can effect our lives.... but that's it. Overall this movie is "okay" for one watch... I've seen worst flicks, but this movie has one BIG problem; for the one of the most haunted places in US, nothing special happens during the whole movie. Some dark figure appears from time to time - but that's it. And the acting is quite lousy, but at least the actors are trying to be convincing and that's a good point. If you don't have nothing better to do in your life, watch this for 100 minutes, but don't expect a lot.

When a brutal carjacking yields a videocamera, a teenage boy decides to document his life and the lives of his fellow gangbangers. (91 mins.)
Director: Adam Ripp
“ Gang Tapes is a found footage crime movie mixed with classics like Menace 2 Society and Boyz n the Hood. A boy receives a stolen videocamera and begins to capture everyday life in a ghetto. The movie itself is not bad, but I was bothered by sooo many cliches and stereotypical potrayal of black people with fast mouth, itchy trigger fingers, a taste for smoking crack and fists for causing mayhem on the streets. It's not that these things are not happening out there, but we've seen them so many times it's more like a cliche or punchline, so even black people make fun of it. But overall this is a decent movie with solid acting and simple, yet predictable plot.

A young girl staying in touch with her boyfriend via a webcam discovers an unimaginable horror linked to the house she just moved into. (80 mins.)
“ This is an interesting movie; The Collingswood Story is told entirely through webcams. I know, I know... it sounds horrible and boring, but trust me... this has to be one of the best shaky cam horror I've seen in years. The story is simple; Rebecca and John are a young students in strong relationship, which is torn apart when Rebecca moves to college in Collingswood. And suprise-suprise; she moves in the house with very dark secret. I won't give away too much, I'm just gonna say; this is an independent gem of found footage horror, because it can scare you without any typlical "jump-scare" scenes. The music, intelligent dialog and whole feeling of happening something horrible are perfect. I can't say nothing more than just this; WATCH THIS!

Two friends bring along a newcomer to go on a killing spree. (77 mins.)
Director: Cruise, Killjoy
“ This is a big dissapointment after the first installment of AU. If you think the 1st one didn't make a lot of sense, just showing extreme gore combined with scenes of random crap, you didn't see the sequel, which is even more pointless. I must admit I didn't watch the whole thing, just 1st half of the movie, but that was enough for me. I can tolerate blood in movies to a certain point, but Mordum was way too extreme for my taste; vomiting on dead bodies, having sex with corpses, a man must chop out his own penis and then rape a woman with it... you get the idea. Okay... I must admit there are a couple of scenes I liked and those were not the gory ones; the visit at junkie's home, the constant fights between the main character and his girlfriend... but other than that; no, thanks... I'm really not into extreme gore like this.

In 1953 the entire population of Wicksboro, Texas vanishes. Forty five years later a witness comes out of hiding to tell the story. (71 mins.)
Director: Rico Lowry
“ This is an alien found footage movie and we don't see a lot of them in this genre (don,t know why, aliens are sure one creepy bastards), so I was pretty excited when I got hold of a copy with this movie. The Wicksboro Incident is a story about two young filmmakers trying to uncover a strange incident in the early 50's when the entire population of small Texas Town dissapear without a trace. I won't give much away, but the movie involves experiments with aliens and goverment cover-ups with very "X-files" atmosphere. What can I say about the movie? It has good idea, but kind of mediocre execution. The 1st half of the movie is great and promises a lot, but 2nd part is kind of tiring to watch since walking through the desert and annoying music kind of ruins the whole found footage experience. But in the end I wasn't dissapointed. It's a good movie, but don't expect too much, which is hard, because it delivers a good story but it could be a lot better.

Two troubled adolescents chronicle the events that ultimately lead up to a terrifying assault on their school. (92 mins.)
Director: Ben Coccio
“ One of my favourite found footage movies. It's a video diary of two troubled teenagers, who are planning an assault on their High School. So, as you probably figured it out, this movies is based on Columbine High School massacre in 1999, but it's not focusing on the attack, but more on explaining the motivations of the attackers for this act of violence. It's showing the darker side of growing up on high school, so there're not jocks, geeks, cheerleaders and any other stereotypical characters, made for stupid high school comedy. This is real life about people, who simply don't "fit in" and are facing with enviroment, filled with prejudice and bullying. This is a story about young people, who can't enjoy in their careless era of growing up and are faced with violence, abuse and constant fear of being marked as a "loser". This movie doesn't judge noone and stays away from social commentary, so everything you see is left to viewer to decide. Just remember this; every event has its own reason.

Four thrill seekers making a short film for the internet about an abandoned backwoods property in Gateway... (64 mins.)
“ My god, that was bad. I always HATE when filmmakers are jumping from 1st person to 3rd person without any sense and this movie is a fine example how flawed this combination is. I know it's a low budget movie, so I didn't expect much from it; the acting is horrible, the camera work is amateur at best and some scenes are just painful to watch when actors are overreacting for no good reason. But like I said; the main problem is constant switching between POV horror and traditional movie which is tedious and makes this stupid movie even more stupid. The sad thing is; this could be a decent flick, because it has some promising creepy scenes, but... like I said; choose one of the filming style and stick with it. It's less annoying that way.

The Magician (2005)

(85 mins.)
Director: Scott Ryan
“ The Magician is a mockumentary about a filmmaker, who is following the path of a hired hitman and his everyday life. So we can't espace by compairing this movie to the infamous Man bites dog and I know most of you'll say it's not even close to that "classic". Me, on the other hand, prefer this flick to MBD anytime. While MBD was trying to be too artsy on every level, The Magician skips this crap and goes straight to the point of showing an everyday life of a hitman, which actualy looks like someone, who can smile at you, but at the same time blows your head off with a gun without any remorse. So we have a murderer with charm, sense of humor and coldblooded killer in the same package. Great hitman mockumentary and sadly overlooked by many people. Highly recommended.

“ This is a nice little movie about a group of filmmakers, who are making a documentary about famous short horror story writer H.P. Lovecraft and getting involved in some mysterious incident on the way. I must warn you about something, before watching this movie - if you're not familiar with Lovecraft and his works, you'll probably have very hard time following the plot, because it involves a lot of characters, symbols and plotlines from his short stories, so it can happen you'll be confused if you're not paying attention. As a fan of Lovecraft, I didn't have any problem with it, I liked it, but the ending was kind of dissapointing, since it's kind of... well, weird. I also missed some creepy scenes, but overall it was a fun movie to watch.

Director: Albert Pyun
“ Another experimental movie in found footage genre. The story is simple; a mysterious object from space is changing people into violent zombies. Nothing new here, but there's a twist; the whole movie is shown with the help of a camera, mounted on a hood of police car. So we're actualy experiencing real time horror without any cuts and different camera angels. It's not suprising that the whole movie is only one hour long (with almost 20 minutes of final credits), because it gets kind of boring after some time. But I liked it; it felt more like the reimagination of Orson Wells's War of the worlds where dialogs are more important than the action itself. The lighting effects are kind of lame, but overall I liked it. It's not for everytone and it's not a perfect experiment, but it could be worse.

“ So, as you probably figured it out already, there were some paranormal found footage movies before Paranormal Activity and this is one of them. In Memorium is more like a drama with some horror touch here and there and tells us a story about a young man, dying from cancer and being haunted by revengeful spirit of her late mother. Overall, I like this movie. It's creepy, has interesting concept, suprisingly good acting and delivers a satisfying level of scares. It's nothing special, but worth a watch.

The 1st part of the movie is great where the main character, deranged serial killer wannabe, is explaining every damn cliche in the book of slasher movies. But I was more bothered with 2nd part, when the movie becomes what it was making fun of; very generic slasher with predictable twists and uninteresting main character. I'm not saying this movie is bad, but I wish it could be better and didn't take itself so seriously. It's meant to be a comedy, right?

“ Alone with her is a spycam voyeur thriller about a guy, who becomes obssesed with a girl and install a system of cameras in her apartment. Nothing new here, to be honest; the acting is decent since we're dealing with known professional actors, but they can't save weak writing and overall feeling of boredom. Everything is painfully predictable and generic, but on the bright side; the ending is suprisingly good and creepy, too bad everything else is not even remotely interesting. A weird guy is obssesed with beatiful girl and eventualy destroys her life? Wow, that's... original.

“ It's rare to see a found footage movie about zombies and I was really excited about this one. The Zombie Diaries doesn't have a real plot, it's just a collection of different stories about survivors of a sudden zombie invasion in UK. Since this is a low budget movie I wasn't expecting nothing spectacular and in the end I had a mixed feelings about it; it has an unique approach to the tired genre of zombie movies by showing us the dillemas of the survivors, who are fighting against zombies and themselves, but I must admit there are some scenes, which drag on for no good reason and make this movie kind of boring. The other problem are the zombies; they don't look that dangerous or posing a real threat; they walk slow and give an impression of heavy drunks with bad make up. Other than that and consider the budget, this movie is quite good. It has some creepy scenes and the music is fantastic and not annoying in the slightest.

“ The last installment in August Underground universe. I have a mixed feelings about it again; the first half is okay with some really decent random scenes of two serial killers doing stuff around the town and the gore is really low, but the 2nd half begin to torture us with so many pointless violent scenes (seriously; why do I have to see how someone attacks pregnant women and takes out her fetus?), but I watched to the end since I was interested how everything is gonna conclude. What did I get? Nothing. There's no real ending to this and I was pissed off because I was torturing myself with disturbing violence just for seeing one of the most uninteresting endings in any horror movie. I still like Vogel for trying to push our limits, but I can say in all honesty; I finished with August Underground trilogy and now I can get back to normal life.

“ A young couple, their quiet subburbian home and one wicked demon with some personal vendetta. While I can understand why so many people marked this movie as "boring", I on the other hand, was on the edge of my seat while watching. I love the fact that the entity /demon / evil spirit is never really shown and proves its presence with brilliant sound effects and barely seen shadows. The acting is rock solid, maybe not as good as in TBWP, but still good enough to care about the characters. Again; this movie is not for everyone, but for me it's one of personal favorites.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
In an abandoned house in Poughkeepsie, New York murder investigators uncover hundreds of tapes showing decades of a serial killer's work. (86 mins.)
“ So here's the story; police raids a house and discover a collection of video tapes, filled with torture and death. So, yeah... another serial killer movie, you say? Well, you're right, but this one is not another pointless torture porn flick, it's actualy really great movie. It doesn't focus so much on explicit violence and disgusting images, so it's made in a form of mockumentary with witnesses trying to explaing the content of found tapes. Sure, there are some violent scenes here and there, but for the most part everything is left to our imagination, which is a refreshing change. I really don't need another August Undergrond on my ass! Suprisingly great and effective movie.

A television reporter and cameraman follow emergency workers into a dark apartment building and are quickly locked inside with something terrifying. (78 mins.)
“ This is my 2nd favourite found footage horror movie of all time, right after The Blair Witch Project. In 2007 found footage genre became tired and lost its charm, but REC reawakened it once more with one of the scariest and intense experience ever shown on film. This movie has everything; great acting, superb atmosphere, a dozen of really scary scenes, haunting sound and make up effects and original storyline about a journalist making a TV report about night life of fire department in Madrid and getting stuck in a apartment building, surrounded by special ops, police officers and doctor, who are claiming that people inside the house are infected with strange virus, which turns them into violent zombie creatures. I can't say no more how good this movie is - just watch it and you won't be dissapointed.

“ This is a story about a group of young adventurers, who are searching for lost archeologist in jungle of South America and stumble across cannibalistic tribe. Cannibal Holocaus maybe? Yes, this is a avarage rip-off of CH, it even "borrows" a famous scene with a woman on a pole, but to be honest - it's not a bad movie. It gave me what I expected and nothing more. There's nothing new here. Let's just move on.

The Ghosts of Crowley Hall (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2.7/10 X  
'The Ghosts of Crowley Hall' is the documentary about the Paranormal Investigation that was carried out at Crowley Hall, England in the summer of 2007. (83 mins.)
Director: Daren Marc
“ I didn't expect much from this movie but it was still just a waste of space and time. The background story about Crowley Hall is really interesting, but this movie fails to deliver the same result when it comes to hunting ghosts. The main problem is the leader of the group which focuses only on three things;

1. asking ghosts if they're willing to talk with him
2. asking ghosts where they are located
3. telling the other members of the group to be quiet so he can hear every damn noise around him

The 2nd problem is that most of the things in the movie happen off-screen, that means you don't hear or see nothing creepy. In short; this movie is like watching a regular ghost hunters show without the ghosts. You see the problem here?

Monster Movie (2008 Video)

(75 mins.)
“ Without any doubt I can say that this movie is the worst found footage horror I've ever seen. The story about four friends, who are hunted by some dragon / reptile / lizard creature, didn't bothered me, because we all know originality is not very common in horror movies. What makes this movie so horrible is the execution. In short; this is a movie, who gets everything wrong. Not a single thing in these movie is done right and it's actualy quite shocking to see that this garbage was made in 2008. So let's go step by step to explain why this movie sucks so bad;

1. the acting is horrible at best. Yes, horrible at best. Either these guys were drunk, stoned or both - there's no way a sober man can make this kind of movie. I guess the "actors" were going on a camping trip and make this movie just for kicks.

2. the "effects" are out-of-this-world bad. I won't go into detailes, but let me just say; Ed Wood looks like a genius comparing to these guys. The editing looked like it was made on Windows movie maker, but that's not such a big issue, but if you want to make a monster movie with this tool... it's bad. Really bad.

3. the look of the monster is hilariously bad. Even King Kong from 1933 looked more realistic than this.

4. The camera work is horrible and it's trying to simulate shaking, but it's just laughable bad. One of the funnies scenes in the movie was one where monster is shaking the house and the camera is all over the place, but strangely enough the furniture doesn't move. Weird.

Overal; this movie doesn't deserve nothing, not even a 1. Give this movie a 1 would be a compliment.

“ American remake of REC. Is it any good? Well, actualy it is. It's not on a same level as original, that's for sure but consider how many crappy remakes of foreign movies are to be seen nowadays, this one is pretty good. However, there are some major problems I have with this movie; it borrows waaaay too much from the original REC and not even trying to be a bit different and the main actress Jeniffer Carpenter is sometimes overreacting in the most melodramatic way possible, but on the other hand she's passable. Other than that I don't have nothing bad to say about this movie. It's enjoyable, fun and sometimes very creepy. Give this remake a chance.

“ Oh, I love this movie! Cloverfield is a found footage monster movie about a giant creature attacking New York City. Yeah, it's a Godzillla rip-off, but this movie is very intense, has some decent creepy scenes and the look of destroyed city with special effect is just brilliant. The acting is quite good and it's basicaly a movie, which shows how Godzilla from 1998 should be made. I was never so excited watching a movie like during Cloverfield. I'm hearing they're planing a sequel, so I hope it'll be good.

A supernatural drama about grief. (87 mins.)
Director: Joel Anderson
“ This movie scared the crap out of me. Before watching I didn't know anything about this movie but I was hooked to it in the first couple of minutes. Lake Mungo is a ghost story mixed with very emotional family drama about grief of losing someone you love and care. The whole movies is made like a mockumentary about life and mysterious death of young Alice Palmer. Her body is found in the bottom of a lake and after couple of weeks her spirit is haunting the home of her family. This movie delivers a dozen of great scares and haunting images, but it gets a little silly somewhere in the middle when it's trying to be too much twinpeaksque for my taste. But the ending is briliant and whole movie is just one great haunting experience.

“ After the huge sucess of Cloverfield it was not suprise that Asylum wanted to take some pieces of golden cake, so they made this very low budget movie about two sisters, who are making a documentary on global warming in Tokyo and soon after their arrival the city is attacked by an unknown creature. Yes, it's a complete rip-off of Cloverfield, but still it's not that bad and can be enjoyable for the most of the time. The acting is decent, special effects are kind of lame and the monster is more like a demented octopus rather than some frightening creature. The camera work is ever more annoying as in Cloverfield, so if you have often vertigo moments, don't watch this film. Other than that, I liked Monster. It wasn't nothing special, but that's the thing with Asylum movies; they're just here to make money. Nothing more, nothing less.

Director: Nick G. Miller
“ Movies about exorcism are pretty much on the same tape; we have some young girl being possessed by the demon, a priest comes along and the exorcism can begin. Chronicles of an exorcism is no exception to this rule. It's run-to-the-mill focused horror movie with predictable story, lame acting and some really weird sound effects. But still... it's not a bad movie, because it delivers some very nice creepy scenes. It can be boring for some people, but I managed it.

“ Not a found footage horror movie, but it's more disturbing as anything you see on film. Why? Because it's real. What we see, really happened on that sad day of 9/11, when two planes crashed into the towers of World Trade Center. This movie is a collection of different cameras, recording the events of that day; from first strike to final collapse of the towers. This movie is brilliant, because it distance itself from policital commentary and focuses more on people and their reactions to the sudden attacks. There are no politicians, terrorists with beards and republicans with a shotguns in their hands here... it's pure emotional drama about a city, which was facing one of the worst terrorist attacks in a human history.

“ Home Movie is one of those movies which makes you cheer for the villains, even it the villains are your own children trying to murder your ass. So the movie is showing a father and mother with two creepy kids, who are actually a psychopathic killers. Parenting go wrong - I guess. Both little brother and sister are excellent in their roles, with no facial expression, they barely talk and you can see there is no "light" in their eyes, just pitch black. But the main problem are the parents; they're not annoying, but plain and simple retarded. Most of the times they act like two escaped mental patient and when you realise that parents are more creepy than their psychopatic children, you know movie made a mistake. But let's not be so harsh; this is faily creepy movie and thanks to child actors it's above avarage fun.

“ Another found footage horror I didn't know nothing about before watching. I turned out to be very good, kind of strange mix between teen comedy and The Blair Witch Project. I know it sounds weird, but suprisingly it works on every level. The story is non-existent; a bunch of kids are celebrating the end of school year and doing all kind of wacky stuff, but then they go to the woods and strange things begin to happen. The acting is above avarage for a low budget movie and creepiness mixed with black humor is spot on. I can't really describe this flick, you have to watch it for yourself.

But when it's all said and done - this is pretty good horror movie. A mother and her two children are haunted by demonic presence of their deceased father in their own house. It's nice that Asylum actually suceeded in capturing the eerie feeling of something evil going on to these people, but at the same time they manage to make it creepy and sometimes even more scary than Paranormal Activity. Yeah, a low budget kind of ruins some scenes which could be done better, but for what they got it's a really neat indie horror movie.

“ Damn, this movie could be so good if the developers would decide what they're trying to show; a slasher movie, a stalker movie or a movie about annoying teens wondering around the woods and panic for no good reason. Okay, I must admit that the first 40 minutes of the movie are quite good; we have teenagers who are stalked by a unkown driver in black van. But the movie gets from good do bad when kids come to the secluded house in the woods, where they're celibrating one of theirs friends birthday. I won't give much away - I just want to say that this movie is confusing from that part on. It has a slow build up, but the finale is so messed up and confusing it made my head hurt. Maybe I'm not intelligent enough to appreciate this "classic"... I don't know. I was trying to watch it twice but I didn't like it. Sorry.

“ So, as you all know; I loved Noroi / The Curse, a previous found footage horror movie from Kôji Shiraishi. I had high expectations for this movie and maybe because of that I was kind of dissapointed in the end. No, this is not a bad movie, it's still better than most of high-budget crap they make in Hollywood, but I had a feeling this movie is missing something to be great. First of all; it's too damn long for what it's trying to deliver. The last 30 minutes of the movie really dragged on and on to the point I almost fell asleep. Second of all; the story is not that interesting or even a little scary. The problem is (maybe) that Shiraishi is great when he's creating an atmosphere and good tension, but when it come to storytelling he falls flat and since this movie is mostly based on monologues of people explaining what they witness, Okaruto becomes kind of boring movie. Still... it had some decent atmosphere and great acting, so I won't give it a low rating. I just expected something more... exciting.

This show seems to be really popular with the crowd, but it never really sucked me into the story. I guess the main thing that bothered me were too many scenes of just someone walking around abandoned house / warehouse / tunnel with night vision and pretty bad acting. Plus; why is Slenderman always picking the most boring teenagers in the world to stalk? I mean... he's such a strong entity, yet he puts himself so low to hunt some wooden douchebags with cameras?

DarkHarvest00 - I must admit that EverymanHYBRID is a masterpiece of fear compairing to this piece of crap. Seriously; this has to be the worst slendervlog out there and I can't really believe that people watch this series for some unknown reason. Anyway, just a quick note to the developers of this show; guys, some people are just not born to hold camera in their hands or standing in front of it. And another thing; standing with the camera in abandoned building is NOT scary! Stop doing that all the time! RATING: 1/10

A sequel to the 2007 masterpiece is even more thrilling, disturbing and action packed with suprising twists. It's nice to see so many horror cliches (tough soldiers, conserned priest, stupid kids with ability to make stupid decisions) put together in one movie and put them into new perspecitve. So... that means the sequel is as good as original? Well... yes. It's not worse it's not better... both of these movies are on the same level of true horror.

“ A lot of people seem to hate this movie for personal reasons. From what I heard, the creators banned someone from promoting a trailer for this movie on You Tube and that cause a lot of negative promotion among fans of found footage movies. The result was that many people didn't like this movie, but not because it's that bad, but because they want to show their middle fingers to the creators, which is understandable to some point.

However... I'm one of those people, who really didn't care for this scandal, I just wanted to see this movie and... I liked it. Story is simple; a young couple goes on vacation and finds out some strange machines, which leads to alien invasion. Sure, this movie is not new Blair Witch or something, but consider the low budget and limited resources (to make a movie about aliens is pretty hard job if you don't have a lot of money) I think it was pretty decent and it kept me interesting all the way.

“ Hmm... where do I start? I was searching this movie for year and a half and finally saw it... I wish I could get my 18 months back, because this movie is pretty much horrible. Since it has a LOT of problems, I'll just name some of them;

1. bad acting even for my low horror standards.

2. the movie puts some commercials during the footage of ghost hunting. I mean... what's the point? These commercials about pizza huts and restaurants got nothing to do with the whole damn movie. Is this movie trying to make fun of ghost hunter shows? Okay, I get it, but still... commercials, who are trying to be funny but fail on every damn level, are really something I don't want to see in a movie about ghost hunters.

3. the movie is repeating the same crap over and over again. First 15 minutes we're listening to one of the most boring intruduction of a haunted location (a cinema) I've ever seen. The narration is fine but it's just repeating the same damn thing. Okay... the cinema is haunted, we heard you the first time... move on!

4. The ghost in this movie is... well, I think even Casper looked more frightening than this poor excuse for a ghost. And the worst thing is that the actors are actually trying to be scared, so the whole scene with a ghost is laughable bad.

So, what's the verdict? Avoid this and watch Casper, you'll get more scares from it.

Visiting her native Japan with her American boyfriend Darren, Reiko is disappointed to see him spend most of his time filming local stereotypes... (90 mins.)
“ I've been searching this movie for over two years and when I finally saw it, I was very dissapointed with the result. It had some nice settings and the acting is quite decent, but the main problem is that pretty much nothing happens during entire 90 minutes. We just see a bunch of uninteresting characters walking around some house and panicking about a dirty water in a bathtub. That's pretty much it.

Haruka Yamano returns from America to Tokyo in a wheelchair, both legs having multiple fractures from a car accident... (90 mins.)
Director: Toshikazu Nagae
“ Great movie. A japanese take on Paranormal Activity franchise and some kind of sequel to the first PA. This is a story about young girl named Haruka, who has a terrible car accident while on a trip in US. She has damaged legs and chain to the wheelchair. When she returns home in Tokyo, her brother takes care of her but soon after her arrival strange things begin to happen. Japan still knows how to scare the crap out of people and PA2 - Tokyo Night is a perfect example of that. It's much more scarier than US version and has some "Ringu" touch to it. Overall; must see for every found footage fan. And don't forget to cover your eyes

The Burningmoore Incident (2010)

The cameras filming a TV pilot capture the brutal killings of a home renovation crew. (86 mins.)
“ The beggining of this movie is presented as a mockumentary and it's great; a story about a father, who is obssesed with occult and satanism, kills his entire family and dissapears without a trace. But everything goes downhill with the 2nd part of the movie, where we're witnessing a home renovation group, who is trying to repair the old house, where the murders took place. I was bothered with constant explaining about home renovations, because I want to watch a horror movie, not some "Pimp my house" show. But when horror actualy kicks in, it all falls apart with overuse of annoying, melodramatic, cheezy and boring music. Seriously; FF horror is different from other genres because it doesn't need no fake music in the background, because it ruins the whole experience of being "real". Too bad, because the movie was promising at the beggining, but if fails down completely in the end.

“ Short review; a couple of boys are fooling around the town, walk into some abandoned warehouse, fool around some more for about 40 minutes and in the last 10 minutes they all get killed by some creepy dude. If it was for the last 10 minutes, I would say it's a decent german FF movie, but as a whole it's crap. 90% of the movie is fillled with pointless scenes of laughing and walking and I wouldn't be bothered by these if it was worth a wait, but it's not.

“ Another very hard to find movie, but when I suceeded and watched it, I was blown away. This was one of better found footage monster movies and can be compared to big cinema hit like Cloverfield. Movies is consisted of many different footage of people, who are terrorized by unknown creatures in the woods. I won't give anything away, but this movie kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time and the acting was suprisingly good for a low budget flick. I won't say it'll scare you, but I got what I expected; great fun.

“ I had very low expectations for this movie, in fact I didn't expect nothing from it, but in the end it turned out to be quite good. Two filmmakers are making a documentary about a murder of two twin girls in some countryside town and get involved in some very bizzare events with tragic epilogue. Re-Cut doesn't bring nothing new to the table but that doesn't matter; movie is never boring and has decent acting with some nice creepy scenes here and there. Worth a watch.

The title of the movie delivers what it promises; a group of journalists are hunting for trolls and we're not talking about those hobgoblins from that crappy B horror movie in 80's, but giant trolls, who can be killed with lightning and turn into stone. What I liked about this movie was a refreshing change from paranormal and serial killer stuff; instead of that we get very funny and exciting trip into the dark forest, filled with hungry trolls. The ending is spectacular and way more exciting than any Michael Bay's explosion movie, so yeah... this is definetely one of the best found footage movies out there.

“ Meadowoods is a shaky cam drama about a group of three teens, who are bored of their lives, so they try to kidnap a random person and kill it in most brutal way possible. Overall I like this movie, but I have one MAJOR problem with it; the motive. The movie never really tries to explain why are kids doing this horrible thing. Why are they trying to take an innocent life? Why do they feel so much hate towards the world? Just so spice things up in a quiet town? Sorry, that's a cheap excuse for their crime. Anyway; I still think this movie is decent; the acting is fine, it has some nice twists here and there etc. Worth watching but it could be better.

“ I'm just gonna say it; this movie scared me. Seriously. I didn't find not a single positive review about this movie, so here it is; I liked it. It was what I was hoping for; a decent scary movie. Aslyum take on The Exorcist with a mix of Paranormal Activity film style is a bit stupid (it's Asylum flick overall, right?) and some of the characters are quite cartoonish, but I don't see why is this movie rated so low. Maybe because it's Asylum movie? So what? Okay, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I agree that this movie has some major issues, but it's creepy and has some decent jump scares. I recommend watching this as younger brother of "The last Exorcism".

“ Let me say just this; this movies requiers A LOT of patience. First 40 minutes are not that interesting because we're dealing with a young couple and their friend arguing about their troubled relationship and bizzare love triangle. While it can be boring at times, it's not that bad and the actors are good enough to make you stay until that minute when things began to happen.

“ I don't know if the first Paranoid Activity even exist, but if it's bad as this one, then I really don't care. This movie heavily borrows from Paranormal Activity, but that's not the problem I had with this flick, since most of the found footage horror about ghosts are the same story all over again. The main problem is that the movie is boring and without any real scares. The lights are turning on by themselves? Well, maybe this was scary 30 years ago, but now it's just annoying. The main character finds his kitchen in a complete mess every morning? What's so scary about that? And the most pointless scene is 5 minutes long static shot of a guy, setting the trap for the ghost with ropes. And when the ghost is actualy shown, it's just a bad CGI effect which makes a laugh. Yes, this is indeed an unintentional comedy, but it's not "so-bad-it's-good" movie. No, this movie is just plain bad.

In the beggining I had a feeling like this is going to be a ghost story, but it turned out to be very intense monster movie. The acting is okay, there are some creepy scenes here and there, the only problem I have with this movie is (SPOILER) the fact that all the characters are more shaken because one of their friends was killed during the investigation, but on the other hand noone is concerned that there is a effin' monster in the sewers. This it's not ruining the movie, but it leaves you confused. Overall; a very good monster movie.

“ I wanted to like this movie, believe me. I even watch it twice, because the first time I was sure I missed something, but in both cases I came to the same conclusion; The Tapes is a movie with great idea but poor execution. A story about three youngsters, hungry for fame and money, are trying to record a wild orgy in secluded warehouse, which is in fact a coven for devil worshipers. The main problem with most of found footage movies are slow build ups with dissapointing / rushed endings and The Tapes are classic case of that. In the end we're left with characters we don't care about, boring off-screen deaths and decent creepy atmosphere. Watch this only if you're bored to death.

“ There were so many negative reviews about this movie, but I think people are too harsh on it. First of all; it's an experimental movie with a purpose to do something different and yes... it's not a perfect movie - far from it - and has a lot of flaws, but consider it was made without any money and with limited resources, the director and actors did a pretty good job. Bare in mind; this is not a horror movie as it is advertised, it's more like a psychological drama about the effects of superstitions on everyday people like you and me. The director knows what is he doing and I have a faith in him that someday he'll made a great movie. I suggest to give this movie a try and bare in mind again - it's an experimental movie and consider that the director put the whole movie on You Tube it shows he's really trying to do something better with bigger budget.

“ This is the 4th installment of Paranormal Activity rip-off made by Asylum. And it sucks. Here's why;

1. this movie's got nothing to do with Amityville house. The house in this flick doesn't resemble in any way to Amityville House. The original was located near a big lake, but this one looks like a normal family house near some forest. Why? I guess Asylum found a house somewhere and just marked it as Amityville house, I don't know.

2. the acting is horrible. We all know that Asylum's actors are nothing to write about, but these ones are really really bad. They're so bad it makes my head hurt. They act so bad that every scene looks like an unintentional comedy.

3. the special effects are a joke. Flying pieces of black crap, people falling into comas with no good reason and horrible CGI ghosts. The ending makes this movie even more tedious and painful to watch.

Avoid this movie. Nothing more.

Director: Chris Sheng
“ I'm not really picky, when it comes to found footage horror movies, but I have to draw a line somewhere. 1666 (also known as Knock Knock 2) is one of the worst cases in this genre. What's wrong with it? Well... the main problem is a very very slow build up; for the first 40 minutes we're just watching two couples driving around the city and recording strange houses from the outside and nothing else. After that the couples come to some strange house and argue for about 10 minutes if they'd go in or not. When they enter the house, everything goes downhill; nothing happens. We hear a baby cry and the couples can't escape from the house because the windows and doors are barred with wood. That's it and nothing else. Waste of 80 minutes of my life with slow build up and dissapointing payoff. Skip this one and before you ask: "Yes, there is also a first Knock Knock movie but it's got nothing to with this one."

To be fair, I expected more from this movie since it had good story about a cursed tree which can opened our deepest fears and lead us to the bitter end with suicide. But as is the case with The Tapes; great idea, but very very poor execution. Most of the time you have to deal with boring soap opera melodramatic crap about who cheated on who with who etc. Okay; you CAN mix romantic drama and gothic horror, but it's pretty much hit or miss chance.

While the story and the setting is promising, everything goes downhill with horrible acting, confusting storytelling and lame ghost effects.

We see a "concerned" mother and housewife walking around the house and showing amateur ghost hunters the kitchen and daughter's bedroom like she's selling furniture or something like that.

“ It's rare to see a found footage movie about zombies and I was really excited about this one. The Zombie Diaries doesn't have a real plot, it's just a collection of different stories about survivors of a sudden zombie invasion in UK. Since this is a low budget movie I wasn't expecting nothing spectacular and in the end I had a mixed feelings about it; it has an unique approach to the tired genre of zombie movies by showing us the dillemas of the survivors, who are fighting against zombies and themselves, but I must admit there are some scenes, which drag on for no good reason and make this movie kind of boring. The other problem are the zombies; they don't look that dangerous or posing a real threat; they walk slow and give an impression of heavy drunks with bad make up. Other than that and consider the budget, this movie is quite good. It has some creepy scenes and the music is fantastic and not annoying in the slightest.

The story is nothing original, but that's not the problem here; the main issue is this; if you're making a movie about monsters / cannibals / wild animals it's in common sense to show us something, not just 70 minutes of walking around the woods in pitch black. Yeah, there are some weird noises in the background and screaming, but that's it... they never show the thing, that is chasing our heroes and that sucks. Really sucks.

“ Judging from what I saw, this is a very very low budget movie about a group of people, who get stuck in the middle of the desert, which is actualy a ground of infamous Area 51. So we got aliens on our backs again, but this time in a very low budget form, if you know what I mean. Most of the time in the movie we're just seeing some people we don't care about walking around the desert and hearing some strange noises (probably from another planet). That means this is a movie about aliens but without actualy seeing aliens. Bummer. But before you trash this film out, I must say it's not as bad as it seems. Consider the low budget this movie is passable since the acting is fine, the feeling of being lost in the dangerous place is there and the story is pretty unpredictable, so you always wonder what will happened next. So my final verdict? If you know what you're getting into, you won't be (so) dissapointed. It could be much much better, but it's not a terrible movie either.

The Gerber Syndrome: il contagio (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
A new, very dangerous virus, spreading all over Europe in early 2011. (88 mins.)
Director: Maxi Dejoie
“ In Italy there is an outbreak of some mysterious virus, which turns people into zombie-like creatures and a documentary crew is filming random people (doctors, victims and their families, ambulance drivers), who are involved in this horrible incident. So... what to say about this movie? It was pretty good and for some moments really intense, but the only thing missing was some deeper explenation in origins of this virus, which is sweeping the country. But hey... that's what sequels are for... I hope.

Goodleburg (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Three aspiring filmmakers are hired to film a documentary about the legends of a local cemetery. While filming; BJ... (90 mins.)
Director: B.J. Stack IV
“ Goodleburg is another "no-name" movie in FF genre and tells us a story about a group of people invastigating an urban legend about some haunted cemetery in the forest. In short; it's Blair Witch knock-off with nothing new to show us, but that doesn't mean that the movie is bad. For the low budget title is pretty good and does his job right; it's creepy, has decent acting and some scenes are really well done. Goodleburg is not a masterpiece, but it's enjoyable flick.

The Crying Dead (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.0/10 X  
This film tells the horrifying story of the cast and crew of a new reality TV show investigating the paranormal... (81 mins.)
“ I was searching for this movie for about two years and in 2013 I finally saw it. What can I say? It's... okay, just another story about a group of filmmakers exploring some haunted asylum and that's pretty much it. So yeah... it's basically just a Grave Encounters poor cousin with some lame special effects and avarage acting. Overall it's pretty generic and unoriginal, but worth a watch if you're bored. I think this movie could be better if the filmmakers would focus more on simple scares rather than computer generated ghosts, but I guess it could be worse. Decent ghost flick.

Basement (2011 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Soon after Tim Ritter moved into his new apartment, strange noises from the basement, kept him awake every night. He bought a camera to record the strange phenomena. (69 mins.)
Director: Tom Maurauder
“ This is a german FF movie about a guy, who is disturbed by strange noises, coming from his basement. It's pretty standard "very-low-budget" stuff with campy acting and some other technical issues, but I must admit that I actualy liked it. The main thing that suprised me was that the director was smart enough to put simple, yet effective scares in this flick and let's be honest... how many FF movies about haunted basements do you know? Not many and I can assure you that basements are creepy enough without strange noises and weird figures walking around. While it's not perfect movie, I still give him a solid 8, just because it's one of rare amateur FF movies in which some effort was put into.

Megan Is Missing (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.8/10 X  
Two teenage girls encounter an Internet child predator. (85 mins.)
Director: Michael Goi
“ This is consider one of the most disturbing movies about a mysterious man, who is stalking and killing innocent girls. I heard a lot of people actualy believed that the movie is real, but in truth it's not. Still it's a good warning sign for many naive girls, who are chating over the internet with people they don't even know. One of the main reasons why movie disturbs us is great acting from two young female leads and last 20 minutes, which are not showing us any graphic violence, just a lot of convincing facial expressions of guilt, fear and crying for help. While I won't say it's the most disturbing movie I've seen, it's still a great warning for people all around the world, who are still denying the existence of monsters, who are molesting little girls.

Skew (2011)

When Simon, Rich, and Eva head out on an eagerly anticipated road trip, they bring along a video camera to record their journey... (83 mins.)
Director: Sevé Schelenz
“ This is the only movie I really can't describe to you; it's basically "love it or hate it" movie. I personally loved it due to its mysterious atmosphere and some nice twists here and there, but it's really hard to explain what convinced me. Just watch it for yourself and judge by your own standards.

Paranormal Incident (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2.9/10 X  
The infamous Odenbrook Sanitarium closed after a mass suicide occurred within its walls. Sixty years later... (82 mins.)
Director: Matthew Bolton
“ Again with the damn switching between 1st person view and traditional filming. I don't know why filmmakers dont' see that this is annoying as hell and tedious. Whenever I see a movie with jumping from 1st to 3rd person, I turn away, because most of them sucks with capital S! But I give some credit to this movie... even if they would make a POV horror movie, it would still be bad as it is. It's the same crap all over again with stupid teens, locked inside of a haunted building and being chased by ghosts. It's a cliche after cliche, sort of speak. But in all honesty... I stopped watching this after 30 minutes, so I don't know how it ends and I really don't care.

Evidence (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
Ryan makes a documentary on his friend, Brett, and his first time camping, until a mysterious figure in the woods starts hunting them. (78 mins.)
Director: Howie Askins
“ This is one of the most exciting action rollercoaster ride you'll ever see in a found footage genre! Evidence starts up as a typical monster movie about the mysterious wild animal in the desert forest, but in the end it turns out to be something far far more dangerous. What can I say about this flick? It's great action horror movie with breathtaking visuals and some decent performances. And it's never boring - that's for sure. I hope they'll make a sequel, since a lot of things should be explained more.

The Cohasset Snuff Film (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.3/10 X  
In 2009, the small town of Cohasset, Massachusetts was rocked with tragedy. A 17-year-old high school... (85 mins.)
Director: Edward Payson
“ Since this movies has "snuff" in the title, I didn't have high expectations, but it blew me away. The Cohasset Snuff Film is a great mockumentary / found footage flick about a troubled 17 - year old kid, who decides to become a serial killer. The main reason why I liked this movies is that it doesn't focus too much on violence and gore (to be honest, there's no gore whatsoever in this flick) but more like on a state of mind of our messed up society. I found it fascinating that the main character was indeed a nutjob, but in most of his monologues in front of camera he makes so very good points about how people react to killing of another human being. In short; if we don't know the victim, we don't care. This movie is more like a statement about todays society rather than typical serial killer movie and it works on every lever. Highly recommended movie!
