Storyline

A VIP private party in a tropical island surrounded by rainforest. The invitation, a small video camera (flipcam) that you have to wear around your neck at all times. The cameras record randomly and you never know when they are on. Sounds like the best and sexiest party ever? It is until a group of friends disappears in the forest. After weeks their cameras are found, on them we discover what has happened, and why the authorities did not want these images to be revealed. Written by Desaparecidos production

The missing one
31 July 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Was not entirely excited by the idea of the story (though with the right execution it may have worked in a moderate guilty pleasure way), with it being nothing new and with the fear nothing new would be brought to it. Coming across 'Desaparecidos' by chance and having an appreciation for horror, despite not expecting an awful lot the decision was made to view it with an open and fair mind.

'Desaparecidos', a Brazilian found footage (have never been a fan because it has nearly always been done badly or worse) horror, turned out to be one of those films that didn't really excite on paper but seen also as part of a low-budget horror quest on top of having appreciation for the genre, and didn't fare much better, in fact it fared even worse, in how it was executed. Do not take any pleasure criticising the film, but it didn't work for me at all in almost every aspect.

Some lighting was not bad and had some atmosphere, but was generally too dark and drab. Especially when it was very difficult to appreciate, let alone enjoy, it properly when the editing especially was so confused and jumpy and the camera work inducing excessive nausea.

Audio is obvious and intrusive and it honestly feels like a woefully inexperienced under-budgeted film in terms of how it is directed.

One of the worst aspects was the acting, which is unspeakably dreadful all round. Have not seen acting this unnatural-looking in a while. The script is horrendously stilted and the characters are not interesting or rootable at all.

Furthermore, there is no tension or suspense whatsoever. The film is far too dully paced and uneventful to be thrilling and is just too silly, jumpy and predictable to evoke any sense of terror. Some of it is not very easy to follow either.

Summing up, nothing good here and everything is awful. 1/10 Bethany Cox
