Storyline

First-time directors Andrew Yorke and Kevin Michael invite you on an experimental cinematic journey through the lives of troubled youth in troubling times. When a pregnant women is found dead in a warehouse, all signs point to suicide. But a freelance journalist gets a tip that an eyewitness with a different story is ready to talk. Yorke and Michael immerse viewers into a world beyond normal youthful indiscretion, one that's dark and safely self-contained until pressures from mainstream society shatter everything. Videotape is a raw, powerful exploration of the darker side of human nature, with crucial questions screaming to be answered. Written by xteamartists

Intense but slow
23 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Videotape" deals with a group of friends being killed in a warehouse. When the lone survivor of the events agrees to an interview with a camera team and hands them some video material of the events leading to what happened, new light is shed on the disastrous day.

The film is built up really slow, so slow in fact that you sometimes wish for a bit more to happen. Additionally at least some of the actors are hard not to mix up which makes parts of the material really confusing. However, in the end the tension rises a lot and the movie truly catches its audience then. In my opinion, the acting seemed really natural and especially the footage tapes seem like they could as well be real. For the interview sequence though, maybe a more modern approach without some of the retro look, could have suited the film even better.

All in all this is a nice addition from a smaller production. It delivers some innovative approaches and a satisfying second half that manages to make up for the slightly disappointing first part.
