Storyline

This is a 'found-footage' movie from Canada about five young friends who go on a trip to a cabin back in 2011, but on the way (while filming it) they head off the beaten track to a place called Crowsnest where they have heard that you can buy beer for half price! They get the beer but at the same time they receive a warning to head back where they came from or they will die. But they don't take the warning too seriously and keep driving in to the forest. But they seem to be lost, then an RV hits one of them and all hell breaks loose. There's something about the people in the RV. Will the friends survive? Written by Michael Hallows Eve

Disappointing Entry in the Found Footage Genre
18 January 2014 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Crowsnest (2012)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Five friends go out to the middle of nowhere for no good reason when they are menaced by a RV who just happens to have cannibals inside. CROWSNEST is the latest "found footage" film and it's also one of the worst. I must admit that I'm a fan of this genre but at the same time we are getting so many of these pictures and none of them are really setting themselves apart. There are many problems with this one including the fact that it's pretty much just DELIVERANCE, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST and WRONG TURN thrown together. There are even a few scenes lifted from THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT including the entire "talking/crying to the camera." I think on all future found footage movies is one big rule that shouldn't be broken and that annoying supporting characters screaming at the guy with the camera to turn it off. There's probably ten-minutes worth of footage here with people screaming about him filming everything but we, the viewer, knows he's not going to turn it off or else there would be no movie. So please, future filmmakers, quit these scenes because they're quite annoying. Another problem with this movie is that the five characters really aren't all that likable so it's hard to care about what happens to them. Add in the fact that they're rather annoying at times and you're left with even more reasons not to like or care about them. The performances are fairly good for this type of production and I will say that director Brenton Spencer at least handled a few of the scenes well. One example is when the kids first chase the RV and then this plan backfires on them. CROWSNEST features some gore, a lot of screaming and the typical found footage trappings but sadly it's a pretty boring affair.
