found footage to avoid
25 March 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I have nothing against found footage flicks let that be clear but this one here just doesn't deliver any frights or scary moments. What the makers were trying to do is to make a found footage that has a bit of a Blair Witch Project (1999) look. But this time it just didn't work out.

I had to wait around 50 minutes before the first weird thing really happens and even that part was rather stupid. You know the feeling, doors being slammed...Before that you have 5 friends meeting each other and going for a anniversary weekend at a house of one's aunt. But while driving out of New York some van is annoying them. They start filming the van but before they know it the van follows every move they make. But it isn't scary. Once at the house the van pops in again and they go to the woods, getting lost of course full of weird noises but again, nothing really happens. Once the night vision is switched on on the camera I thought, well now we are going to get it but just when it should happen, the movie is over...I thought. End credits and still over 10 minutes before the end. Oh yes, we do see that the van filmed them too, a thing we already knew from the VHS throughout the flick. And even that part I had something like, were is the evil thing? Well, the last minute we do hear some evil thing, already once heard in this flick. Fim over and I agree, an evil thing to watch. avoid it and that's a thing I don't say normally.
