Storyline

In the vast wilderness of the Klamath National Forest lies the small logging community of 'Happy Camp'. With a population consisting of only a few hundred souls, this mysterious mountain town has become world renowned for it's staggeringly high number of Missing Persons Cases... At the age of 9, young Michael Tanner was adopted by Walt and Sandy and brought to Happy Camp where the couple were raising their young son, Dean. Upon Michael's arrival, the two boys shared an immediate bond and for the first time in Michael's life, he had a family... After living in Happy Camp for only two years however, tragedy struck on the afternoon of October 22, 1989 as Dean Tanner was abducted from his family's home... Michael, being the only witness, oddly had no recollection of the violent crime? To this day there is still an ongoing investigation into the truth behind the disappearance of Dean Tanner along with the other 627 missing people from the town of Happy Camp. Cut to Present Day: 20 years ... Written by anonymous

Promising, but deadly dull
1 March 2014 | by (Tucson Az) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to this based on the trailer, but it seems that unless your found footage film has "Paranormal Activity" in the title, you're in a losing battle.

Over 600 people have disappeared from the tiny town of Happy Camp over the years (where are they coming from, and why aren't the Feds crawling over this death trap are just some of the glaring plot holes) and one man, Mike, (and three friends to document the experience) has come back to town to see if he can put together the pieces of his brothers disappearance. (He was taken over twenty years ago)

Not much happens in the short running time, yokels talking about how "flat landers" should leave, arguing, drinking, blah.

The last fifteen minutes ramp things up, but by then it's too little too late. Cheesy CGI ruins the whole mess, and what makes it worse is that the film has decent production vales, which just makes the whole thing sad, as they could have taken the time to do something more original. (For Pete's sake, walk into a bookstore and grab a random boom from the horror section!)

Oh, and Drew Barrymore had something to do with it. That alone should have warned me.
