Good job
22 November 2015 | by begobSee all my reviews

A passive, mild-mannered video-maker accepts a mystery contract to turn up with his camera for eight hours, and when he gets to the isolated location finds the job is to film a memento video for a man suffering from incurable cancer. But things get out of control.

Looks like simple found footage, but the two psychological types and their relationship ring true, so this two-hander is well played and ends up with a tight climax. I can understand people complaining about the bad decisions, but they felt right for that character.

The jump scares are just that - literal jump scares. And the actor playing the baddie varies his mood nicely. I saw him in The Lazarus Effect, but here he really shows his chops. Movies on this theme I usually find depressing, but this has clarity to it and, although the pace drags a little, it's enjoyable to watch. Add on a well wrapped up ending and it deserves a recommend.

Overall, tight and simple, with a good performance. 7/10.
