Frightfest 2017: ‘Boots On The Ground’ Review

26 August 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tom Ainsley, Ian Virgo, Ryan McParland, Valmike Rampersad, Sally Day | Written and Directed by Louis Melville

On the last night of the Afghan War, five British soldiers must stay alive until midnight. After a fight with Taliban forces, they bunk down in the ruins of an old fort dating back to the first Afghan war. As the night wears on, they encounter a hellish labyrinthine with supernatural forces.

While most found-footage films are a slow burn that linger for the first 80 minutes before igniting into a blaze the last 10 minutes, Boots On The Ground throws us right into the action against hounding Taliban forces. Gone are the days when the audience was expected to slog through aimless exposition and minor scares that amounted to little more than a tease. It is almost as if director and screenwriter Louis Melville expects our found-footage horror movies to actually be interesting!
