Another day, another found footage film. While I was wondering, why this "genre" (shouldn't actually call it that) took so long to take off (Blair Witch Project is like ... really old), a friend of mine stated two points that helped: Paranormal Activity and the fact that digital filmmaking has taken over.
Especially the latter rings true. And because it has become even cheaper to make those movies, some of the money that would have been used for the equipment, can be used for effects or costumes now. Some of which you may be able to see in this movie. While I have stated before that I am not a big fan of found footage movies, I have to admit, that after a somewhat normal/slow start, this movie does kind of take off. Still it takes a couple of breaks in between and isn't really sure what it actually wants. But the delirious pace makes you forget almost any mistake you might have caught, watching this. So this roller-coaster is worth taking (some might feel sick at the end as with the real thing of course)
