Maddeningly absurd!
30 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Low budget; poor acting; ridiculously immature writing. I found myself bored to tears, yet irate at forcing myself to endure this lousy excuse of entertainment. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. This flick reminds me of a film school project completed by a substandard student. Not unfamiliar to "The Blair Witch Project", but a poor attempt at creating a "reality-based" storyline. Takes a lame swipe at the ineptitude of law enforcement's ability to respond to the witness's' manic reports of criminal activity.

Found myself and a co-viewer appalled at the sophomoric results. An exercise in futility, combined with a delusional script. Hated it!
