IMDb: Populated by Hipsters.
16 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First off; I'm a massive found footage fan. Always have been since the initial Blair Witch Project (Which I also thought was a masterpiece of a movie - Especially for the budget.) Even now, I still think it's completely relevant to the horror genre.

Area 51 isn't perfect. I don't think any movie is; possibly with the exception of Fight Club. However it's the best piece of cinema I've seen lately. I think it's ludicrous that Area 51 has received a 4.3 rating when movies that are much worse (YellowBrickRoad) receive a much higher rating.

Not even gonna lie; when I watched YellowBrickRoad I was expecting it to pick up any moment. The entire time. I was left feeling robbed, cheated and in a state of confusion - What the hell was that garbage?

It seems reviewers on here only tend to give high ratings to the "Artsy" films with subtle hints at trivial things.. Like a plot. Or any body whatsoever to the movie..

This was entertaining. It did the job and definitely does not deserve a 4.3 rating.
