I must say that I had to stop watching after the first five minutes. Although I am not from Texas, I knew something was drastically "off" when the interview with the retired sheriff was conducted in "Mohr County, Texas." There is no Mohr County, in Texas.
One would think a writer could be a little more convincing.
The script and acting only became more contrived and pathetic from there. I only feel stupid for thinking this was an actual documentary -- only because my video store (a rather reputable independent one, in fact) placed this under the crime documentary section).
If you enjoy such "laughable" scare-flicks including The Blair Witch Project, then you may very well enjoy this film, but please do not watch this with the mindset expecting a documentary, because it really is not. From the perspective of law-enforcement officials, there is no "Video X," nor are there any interstate crimes committed by the crime-duo of Darla Jean Stanton and Duane Foote.
