Goofs

When Matt returns to his flat after having been sprayed by the young lady on the street, he no doubt would have been carrying a strong odor of the aerosol weapon that the lady used. Particularly if it was pepper spray or OC. The odor would have been very noticeable in his bedroom and quite probably in the rest of the flat. I would also believe, too, having used OC many times myself, that Jemma would have been subject to minor irritation from the residue on Matt while she was retrieving her charging cord. It's reasonable to assume Jemma and Steve would have guessed that something very wrong had happened to Matt. See more »

A plot that's been overdone, but this one's worth a watch
20 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that I had low expectations going in to. The plot has been done and done..and then overdone. However, this one (with an admittedly poor attempt at a new plot line) does very well.

This is a found footage movie, which I never feel is quite advertised enough as is often a surprise. If you hate found footage, this will have the same things that you hate. While the movie is good, the footages existence is often explained by nonsensical plot devices to account for a camera being in a certain place at a certain time. If you can get past that typical failing in a found footage film, you will enjoy this. The tension in this movie is ever mounting. And it starts with three happy roommates having a good time, which makes the movie's plot progression enjoyable. Unlike other movies of this nature where the cameras only show up after bad events begin to occur, this footage begins when things are going dandy (which is well explained in the plot). And that makes the sudden turn, when it inevitably happens, all that more intense. And, as most horror fans can attest, I am rarely surprised in a film anymore. This one surprised me once, and that's really quite exciting.

In terms of gore, this movie is a 2 out of 10. A point that I truly appreciate as fear and disgust are two decidedly different things. There are a lot of sound effects, but the director put all the money from the low budget into quality lost footage (the film quality is Paranormal Activity level - not the grainy, shaky kind often found in this sub-genre) rather than intense gore FX.

I only gave this an 8 out of 10 because of the decidedly BAD decisions these college-age kids make near the end when the situation gets intense. As that sort of nonsensical behavior is expected in movies like this, I tend to not knock a review down for it. But this was excessive. I won't spoil it because the rest of the movie is good, but I will say (and you'll know when it is) that there was one scene where I literally screamed at the TV for these people to make better decisions..and then it happened several more times in an escalating downward spiral in the last 15 minutes. Fortunately, I enjoyed so much of my time leading up that that moment that I still don't regret giving it to this movie.

And it might interest you to know that's it really IS based on a "true" story. See link: http://goo.gl/nIefO
