It had an interesting premise. When you cross The Craft with Ghost Rider and The Blair Witch Project, it equals WHO CARES?! This is more like a found footage film about a bunch of characters I couldn't care less about.
It was done on low-budge...at least it seemed that way. Filming in the woods for the most part is going to cut down on the budget. That's fine, because I love the forest atmosphere. Some people had a problem with the acting. That wasn't the case with me. I thought the actors/actresses did an appropriate job for the characters they played. My problem with the movie was the overall storyline. What was the point of having Mrs. Belial in the movie at all? She wasn't the one chasing them in the woods. I thought the parts with her were total waste because it didn't really fit in with the rest of the movie. Was she supposed to be Lucifer? Or was the biker Lucifer? Or was Lucifer nothing more than just an acronym of the victims at the end? They didn't clarify that.
Dexter Fletcher was interesting, and I wish they kept the POV on him instead of the kids in the forest. Because the POV was mostly on those girls, the story slowed drastically with their drinking, games, and silliness in the forest.
Out of all the girl's, Eve's character was the most interesting, but that's not saying much, because she didn't do very much. She was more like the storyline's information dump for the viewer, because she's the only one who did any kind of research. When the girls texted her for help...first of all, did one of the girls text her? Or did the witch, Lucifer...whoever text her? And was that forest in Eve's backyard? It had to be close enough for her to walk there in her pajamas.
The letters on the chalkboard moving around was a bad special effect. Why they kept showing it, I don't know. I got it, OK?! I know the words spelled out Lucifer. It really wasn't all that clever. And they kept doing it. Ugh! I have to give credit to the composer of the music during the credits. That was soothing and at the same time haunting. However, I didn't think the movie was worth sitting through for that.
I gave the movie a 3-star rating. I can't recommend. It was nowhere near as bad as some horror films I've seen, but I was so bored for the most part, especially with the girls in the forest. They were the lead characters, but I couldn't connect with any of them. They struck me as a clique of rebellious girls who were not likable at all. Either watch The Craft, Ghost Rider, The Blair Witch Project, or have a marathon of all three.
