Surprisingly Enjoyable
1 July 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had been waiting a while to see this and managed to get a copy. I also read the other reviews and they were obviously written by people associated with the movie so I wasn't expecting too much.

Well surprise, surprise! It was actually pretty good. I enjoyed it and it kept me watching so no complaints.

Another reviewer called Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity 'junk' but I disagree. I watch a LOT of found footage and those 2 movies are, in my opinion, examples of FF done well. This movie doesn't achieve those heights but it should be a definite watch for any FF fan.

The good - Good story, acting and camera work. Also built tension really well and the story was closed out nicely.

The not-so-good - It never really felt like it released that build up of tension. It got to the level it wanted but instead of using that tension it kind of just slowly ran its course, not bad just a bit disappointing. Some of the actions of the characters wasn't truly believable sometimes. Example: Girl gets sick and starts seizing with blood coming out of her mouth, ears and nose. When she stops seizing they just put her to bed and tell the arriving paramedics that its nothing, shes resting now and they can go.

With all that said, I will definitely be keeping and eye on this writer and director. This movie had potential to be great and I will be interested to see what can be done with a bigger budget.
