Given that the camera always seems to fall or get knocked into the perfect position to capture the craziness at hand, any vérité pretenses soon prove ridiculous. But it's no more ridiculous than the plot, which incessantly wastes time trying to flesh out its characters, but barely bothers with building suspense.

One wishes it had spared us the remedial theorizing on media culture and artistic representation and license and less apologetically acted the part of a straight-up horror film.

Whatever suspense that might have been generated by the violently gory goings-on is dissipated by the sheer visual incomprehensibility.
20
The film isn't as smart as it thinks it is, and its characters are painfully generic.

The always beguiling Radha Mitchell can't save this stunted procedural-horror combo.

There have been a lot of shoddy found-footage flicks over the past few years, but maybe none quite so shoddy as this.

The New York Times
Neither suspenseful nor even comprehensible, John Swetnam's dashed-off script (carelessly directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi) throws up plenty of red herrings - and a stupendously idiotic ending - but not a single character worth caring about.
10
The movie itself is conclusive proof that the found-footage horror cycle sparked by “The Blair Witch Project” and mined successfully by the “Paranormal Activity” series has finally reached its low ebb.
