A great start. Subpar finish
8 September 2014 | by jaymonie12See all my reviews

This film started out as a very satisfying murder mystery film with a few jump scares to keep the viewers attention, which isn't really even needed because its very interesting. The performances of the actors were great in the first half but didn't last with the exception of Simon Quarterman who plays Gavin in the film, he's a great throughout. But as I stated the last 40 minutes of the film were a let down to me. The film becomes a pretty generic found footage-esque slasher flick that isn't as interesting or unique as the team trying to figure out who or what did what was done like the premise in the first half.

Overall Id give the first half a 8/10 And the second half 5/10

First review I tried to be as vague as possible about the plot of the movie.
