Gemma Baker, a fame hungry wannabee, persuades her hapless boyfriend Danny and his media student best mate Nathan to help her film a big brother audition tape. The weather is bad so they take a moments respite in a local pub, where they hear of a 'Swingers' party taking place on a local farm. Wide boy Danny has the idea of filming the party on video cameras with a view to blackmailing the attendees. They break onto the farm and wait for the arrival of the party goers. The farm is littered with clues and warnings which they ignore before falling foul of the party goers who are in fact Devil Worshippers Written by Scott Bates

Trivia

Though the film took just seven days to shoot - it took a further 20 months for post production. Not because a mass of effects - but purely the budget was so extremely low the producers had to rely on favours and work with editors at ungodly hours in order to get the film completed. See more »

Goofs

A copy of "Call of Duty: Mordern Warware 2" is on a desk beside a character. The film was supposedly shot in 2008 while this game was released in 2009. See more »

Not very good
22 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Blah blah blah....Gemma wants to get on to big brother(uk)...her and her boyfriend and another friend set out to make a showreel for her audition. They get sidetracked and end up at some remote place where the two boys plan to secretly film a swingers party.

The movie starts out descent. The characters are fairly cliché. I'd not want to see Gemma on BB. Nor Danny, maybe Nate, but idk probably not, they're all rather boring. I suppose the only reason I'd say it starts out descent is because I enjoy BB so much. I suppose they use that to an advantage.

A lot of the movie is just them walking around exploring this place. Scaring each other. A whole lot of nothing. Randomly shots of the characters family members are thrown in, which adds nothing. As the movie progresses it tries to make a weak attempt at making it seem the characters are breaking down, and turning on one another and it felt very forced and just boring.

As far as the whole shaky cam thing, and trying to make me(a viewer) believe this was real...absolute failure.

I've enjoyed The blair witch, paranormal activity, abnormal activity, grave encounters....but this, this is not on par...it's rubbish.

I could not keep focus, it was just very boring.
