Stupid
13 July 2016 | by znegativeSee all my reviews

I was really disappointed with this movie. I thought if any director could make the concept of 'Sasquatch' frightening, it would likely be Eduardo Sanchez, the director of 'The Blaire Witch Project', and more recently 'Lovely Molly' and 'Altered' (all movies I highly recommend). After watching 'Exists', and 'Willow Creek' I think the idea of a 'scary' Bigfoot movie is impossible.

If you are a fan of this sub-genre of movie and thought 'Willow Creek' was good (which surprisingly a lot of people seem to be of this opinion) than you'll likely enjoy this one as well. At least in 'Exists' we get to see Bigfoot, and the creature is impressive looking enough.

The problem that plagues 'Exists' is that unlike 'Blaire Witch Project', the whole 'found- footage' angle seems really stretched here. In 'The Blaire Witch' we had students shooting a documentary film, which excused the hand-held POV angle, but in 'Exists' we get a camera- geek who conveniently comes along to stay with some friends at an uncles cabin. Even with today's culture, obsessed with selfies and posting every day routines and conversations on YouTube, it seemed rather forced that this character would not only have a camera for himself, but multiple devices attached to bicycles and from various locations around the cabin.

Sadly, this is one of those movies that makes you understand why some people absolutely can't stand the 'found-footage' genre. I'm not biased one way or another, but one problem that I have with them is that for the most part, we almost always know from the beginning that the characters are going to die, so all we're left to wonder, is 'how' and 'why'? (the only exceptions to this that I can think of are 'The Bay' and 'Lake Mungo' which had a more creative take on the genre).
