Trivia

In one scene, one of the group is attempting to connect two power cables together in order to make the time travel machine work, but he states that they're not long enough and therefore don't reach. This is a possible nod to Back To The Future where Doc is trying to connect two power cables together but they don't reach because one is snagged on a tree branch. See more »

Goofs

The opening minutes of the movie are shown to be recorded on a mobile phone camera, and records the characters finding and activating their fathers handy-cam, yet in the closing minutes of the film this same scene is shown with the alternate time-line camera, which now has the mobile phone footage of the siblings finding the original camera.

What were they thinking?
16 February 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is a tough nut to crack. Honestly I do not understand the artistic choice in cinematography AT ALL. This has to be the worst found footage film ever made.

When you look apart from that, why is it that American teens are made out to be hysterical hyper idiots even when the story line tries to pass them off as potential MIT students? The general behaviour and choices made takes a lot away from the plot or story line of the movie and simply makes it that much harder to accept the concept.

In the end this movie feels like a dumbed down version of Butterfly Effect, but maybe that's what this generation of teens need? Something hype and simple to soothe their unimaginative minds.

Major thumbs down...
