Although Holly's camera went back in time with her, there was another one containing exactly the same footage inside the hatch. This is the same camera, retrieved by soldiers during the Dyatlov Pass incident in 1959 and brought inside. See more »
Several names and words in the final credits start out with some or all of the letters being spelled with Cyrillic script (used in the Russian language). They gradually morph into English. See more »

Decent build up to disappointment
Thought the first half of the film was pretty good, was like Blair Witch in the snow, going through the motions of interviewing people, getting a bit of a background on what they are trying to do.
When they set of on their own and the 'strange' things start happening, it kept you intrigued, but then when you find out what is really going on.. you find out why films like Blair Witch decided not to reveal their monster, because it was truly disappointing.
Not only that, but the whole story at the end was just a bit silly, too out of context with the build up of the film. And the fact that this is meant to be an explanation to the disappearance of real people is pretty weird!
First half of the film is solid enough though, worth a watch if you like found footage horror films.
