Why?
8 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Without revealing too much of the plot, suffice to say this is a reimagining of an actual event.

No idea why other than to introduce the event to a young audience, but who understands the logic of why some films are made? And why the storyline was altered to make it appeal to that younger demographic.

The reality is that the actual event is even more horrific than this film, despite some of the graphic footage you are subjected to here.

I guess the idea was something like a mashup of The Blair Witch Project with the substantive portions of the actual event was the elevator pitch, but for anyone who is familiar with the actual event, this film will simply bore you to distraction until the inevitable happens.
