It's all it could have been! Solid 6!
8 June 2013 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

And there we have it, The Blair Witch Project comes out, the revolutionary "found footage" film and one of the most successful independent movie of all time!

As time passes by, we get Paranormal Activity, Grave Encounters, REC, Cloverfield and others, that pretty much establish this type of movies is here to stay, giving us satirical comedies: A haunted house, Scary movie (some parts); dark fantasy: Trollhunter and so much more. Let us not forget tho, Cannibal Holocaust is the real pioneer in this!

Moving on --> P.O.V. - A Cursed Film. First of all, I must say, I'm not the biggest "found footage" fan out there, but HORROR is something I love for many years. Even so, P.O.V. was quite alright, some good thrills, some good ideas, some humor and quite a nice ending too.

I don't think it could have been more, I'm quite sure it hit it's maximum potential and as a result, we got a movie that will keep you tensed a little, scared sometimes and curious from head to toe!

First person perspective fan or not, for one's collection, this is something that shouldn't be missed, especially for the fact that its not a Hollywood product, so simply out of curiosity, you should check how this phenomenon develops miles away!

Don't really wanna say more, so I won't spoil it for you, my advice , try it out. Don't think you'll be disappointed mate, I really don't think you will.
