20 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. I expected the same old hand held crap that we've seen over and over again but this one had something different. Granted, it took a bit to get there. You have to wait about a half-hour in and then it really begins. That's where the fun actually starts. Because at this point I was glued due to the, "What the hell just happened there?" factor. As a matter of fact, I had to go back and watch the first part again when the film was over because I had so many questions, and quite frankly, I wanted to see if the film followed its own rules and dropped any hints along the way. It did!

I know this movie won't be for everyone. To be honest, those who like found footage films may not actually like it. It's the audience that has never seen a found footage film that should watch it. In a weird way, it reminded me a bit on Nolan's Memento or even Inception. Not for the quality, which is fine here due to the "video camera look", but for the story-line. It's just very well thought out.

For those who want to see a good film that actually makes you pay attention, watch Skew. You won't be disappointed.
