Get your Dramamine ready....
10 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

They got me to watch the pilot touting Spielberg's name and all that... I didn't expect great things with the whole Paranormal Activity link and actors whom, for the most part, I hadn't heard of before. Made for TV horror and airing on ABC brought the expectations down a bit too.

So, I watched... The acting wasn't horrible; wasn't great either. The storyline did have some intrigue. A few really creepy moments -- mainly surrounding scenes with creepy dolls hung from trees.

Now, with regard to my summary... The camera work is horrendous! I get it... Blair Witch style shooting or amateur documentary style shooting. Whichever... The result was too many unwatchable scenes. Two hours of cameras zooming around aimlessly, ridiculously out of focus, no idea where to look was too much! I was listening more than watching through many sections to keep from getting a headache. Seriously, this made the shoddy camera work in Blair Witch seem fantastic by comparison! Will I continue to watch ? Not likely... Not if the whole series is filmed the way the pilot eps. were.
