A Fantastically! entertaining piece of film.
28 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

I rented this movie expecting to see the usual straight-to-video crap, but was pleasantly surprised. The originality of this film was astounding, I have never seen or heard of a movie like this before (not saying there isn't but I have never heard of it). Done in a mock documentary style the film unfolds like a real life investigative journalism story. We learn more about the situation as the "film makers" learn more. More twists and intrigues occur as the movie progresses. I found myself leaning more and more forward in my chair not wanting to miss anything, suspecting everyone. Near the end I was concerned that the ending was going to be a let down but I rewound the tape feeling more than satisfied, I wouldn't of done it any different. Brilliant!
