Josef: I love wolves. because they love deeply, but they don't know how to express it, and they're often very violent and, quite frankly, murder the things that they love, and inside of the wolf is this beautiful heart.

What found footage was made for.
13 February 2019 | by GiraffeDoorSee all my reviews

If you are sick of found footage or even if you never liked it at all, please give this movie a chance.

I usually hate improvisation in movies. It almost invariably provides the most excruciatingly messy and boring dialogue on film (like This is Spinal Tap and Confetti).

But for whatever reason they made it work here. Perhaps it was a free plot structure or the limited number of characters but there is a rawness rarely seen in found footage but at the same time has such personality in both its main characters.

Josef is such a vivid character that would get anyone on edge. Watching the first time I regretted that they didn't keep their cards closer to their chest with Josef's disquieting nature but now I see him as someone who always has something chilling to say.

This got under my skin in way that is hard to do. More than some kind of incorporeal terror, getting trapped in Josef's terrible world really hits raw nerves in me.

One of the very best horror movies ever that will reignite your faith the bottom of the barrel has not yet been scraped.
