On January 9, 2009, five college students left New York City for a weekend in the country. 48 hours later, all five students have simply vanished without a trace. There were no leads and no evidence - until now.
Courtney S. Bunbury,
The middle class Emmy receives a video camera at home and her husband Tom starts filming. They believe they won a prize from the mall. The college student Beth is alone and bored in the empty campus and also receives a camera. Out of the blue, they are instructed to film and not call the police; otherwise they will die. Meanwhile the unemployed Leonard that lives with his mother receives a clown outfit and make-up and instructions to receive ten thousand dollars. After moments of tension, their lives are tragically entwined. Who is the stranger behind the prank? Written by

Hugely underrated solid found footage in the stile of The Blair Witch Project
I can't understand at all the bashing of this highly effective and suspenseful roller coaster film! Was the patriarch of all found-footage horrors, The Blair Witch Project, filled with gory or other scary elements other than the situation itself, modest scares but so well put in place that made your skin crawl? Honestly this movie kept me on the verge from scene one all over to the finale, which was not what I expected but sinister in deed. By now, this specific sub-genre can hardly bring something totally original and the best the directors can achieve in continuing to make movies in found footage style is to keep you in suspense by skillfully adding small but effective, less gory scares...keep in mind that what one doesn't see is the perfect reason to keep one's interest at pin point. Seeing stuff you already saw and that gave you a full ride of scares is worth seeing again, differently portioned and dozed by a masterful director. I loved this little underrated gem and I believe it should receive more credit from found footage-horror fans. True followers of The Blair Witch Project will clearly enjoy this helluva ride from start to finish and, folks, sometimes less IS more! My unapologetic rating is 9/10.
