Well worth it.
8 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Usually not a huge fan of the over saturated found footage kind of horror film. Personally I feel it's run it's course and is dying a slow death. But that being said, it doesn't mean that there still can't be hidden gems within this style of horror. This is one of them.

To put it simple, it had a little something different, giving it it's own stand out charm and not just another run of the mill kind of film.

Acting is always key in this type of film because if you don't care about the characters, the movie fails. The acting is strong but it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's a fun film and the acting lends to that.
