You fellas seem lost. Do you need someone to walk you back to your cottage?
No, we're fine.
You sure about that? You wouldn't wanna walk into the wrong place.
Why? Is there something you don't want us to see?
It's just an expression, friends. It's late. You wanna go pokin' around other people's business you go right on ahead. But if you put your hand into the dog's bowl, don't be surprised if you get bit.

First of all I have to say that I love Ti West's previous work and I was really waiting for this one, having read the good reviews back from the Festivals. So it starts slow, like you'd expect if you know the guy, but it's interesting. I didn't know about the real events that occurred before I heard of this movie, so I didn't really know what was gonna happen, and as the story kept going, I didn't lose interest or anything. It's not really a Found Footage since it's actually shot as a documentary so the shaky cams aren't THAT shaky. If you're not a ff aficionados, you might still dig this flick. Anyway, when the movie ended I was...well it's definitely not an "in your face" horror movie, and it's good that way. Ti West did a nice job and the tension is well built, we care for the guys involved in the situation even though a regular filming wouldn't have changed anything to the film. It's not West's best but it's still really enjoyable...sort of.
Great story. Poor people. Mass MURDER ( not suicide I'd say ). 7/10
