After moments of tension, their lives are tragically entwined. Who is the stranger behind the prank? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Found footage horror falls short of the mark.
17 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

4/10. Three set of people: a woman, a couple, and a man who lives with his mother are mysteriously given large bulky VHS cameras (it takes place in 1995) on their doorsteps and told to "keep filming." In addition the man is told has been entered in a contest where he can win 10 thousand dollars.

This starts out as an interesting premise but doesn't really go anywhere. The woman and the couple stay in their homes as they begin to be terrorized by bangings at the door and sinister telephone calls but are given very little to do.

The man is given orders to leave his home and perform a variety of tasks in full clown suit and makeup and this is a little more interesting, but it doesn't really carry the movie.

Eventually it all culminates in a twist that I didn't see coming, but thought was full of plot holes and didn't make much sense.

I wouldn't necessarily say avoid this one but don't look for anything groundbreaking or very cohesive and entertaining.
