Documenting the Grey Man (2011)
9 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Documenting The Grey Man is one of the worst examples of the found footage genre. The film just isn't convincing enough, and it has obviously adopted the whole found footage form in order to make a cheap film, rather than have it serve the story. The quality is obvious from the start, these characters are supposed to be a documentary film crew and yet they are incompetent at framing shots even if it's just an interview scene. The actors try to hard, which is the worst thing you could do in such a film. Getting characters to try and emote anger and sadness when they can barely say "I'm so scared" convincingly is never a good idea. It's a shame because it sounds interesting at first. This group are investigating a ghost that simply predicts hurricanes. However, by the end of the film it has abandoned this line of investigation for typical scenes of séances and the like. I have no idea what this ghost is doing or why because it flies in the face of the mythology the film has supposedly set-up. The film drags on for 40 minutes before anything happens, and even then it makes no sense. Absolutely no sense at all! One character is grabbed by an unseen force and is dragged across a room. She even has scratches on her arm, yet she still accuses the lead guy of faking everything at the end. What? She was a victim of an obvious paranormal occurrence. The end has everybody attacked by spirits just off screen and leave no wonder as to how they did it. One character is dragged under the bed, but her hand is still in shot for a few seconds before it cuts away. It's shoddy, not scary, and just a waste of time.
