A Layman's Review
6 December 2012 | by (Carlsbad, CA) – See all my reviews

The Garlock Incident is a wonderful take on the "Found Footage" genre. Instead of focusing on horror like most other movies in this category, Evan Cholfin's first feature length film takes a different route and explores the psychology of a small group when they become isolated from the rest of the world, much in the same way that Lord of The Flies shows the deterioration of social conduct when deprived of the most basic human needs (food, water, shelter).

Throughout the film there is a looming supernatural element that keeps the viewer questioning the nature of the characters' impending fate. This only adds the the characters' fears and encourages a more rapid fall into "Fight or Flight" animal instincts.

What is also truly astounding about the film are a few things that I learned from a Q n A with the cast and director: The film was shot in it entirety over a period of four days. The actors were given no scripts, just a general history of their characters and direction of how the scene was supposed to progress. The film was shot in chronological order.

All-in-all, The Garlock Incident is excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to see a psychological thriller.
