Left the Theater Early
3 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie was cheaply made, along the lines of Paranormal Activity, web cam horror flicks, etc. As has been stated by several other reviewers, it is a cheap knock-off of E.T.

We were misled by the poster, which made us feel it would be a great movie for our 7 yr old. NOT! The movie had the characters in bars, teen parties with kissing and alcohol consumption, etc.

Parental concerns aside, the movie was nothing more than a hurried, choppy view from a portable cam.

Save your money and watch a Youtube video...which is what this 'movie' really was.
