A lot better than I expected it to be. A solid effort by everyone involved.
7 February 2018 | by manuelasaezSee all my reviews

I have to admit, this is one of those movies that you have the lowest expectations for; it took forever to release, after years in studio limbo, and when it was finally unleashed to teh masses, it did so with little fanfare. I understand that found-footage isn't really a viable genre choice in 2018, but still, I gave it a chance. Boy, was I happy I did! This was one of those movie that got so much right, that i began to wonder why anyone sat on it for so long.

The story was interesting and fast paced. The set-up was clear, and everyone did their absolute best with what they were given. No complaints there.

The found-footage was obviously passé, but the way that it was done in this movie actually made it bearable. The killer used dozens of cameras strategically placed all over the home to film each kill. So, in essence, the final film is a amalgam of all of the clips each camera captured. It was a unique and entertaining way of showing the action unfold without relying on the old FF tropes.

The acting was great and often very effective, especially when it came to the two kids. Everyone took this script seriously, and it showed in the final product. These people should feel proud that they gave it their all.

This movie hits all of the right notes, so why was it treated like a leper? Well, for a few reasons, actually. The movie has no gore or violence. Everyone who dies does so quickly, and there is very little blood. There is also no foul language in this movie, making me think that it was aimed at children (under 25 years old).

The manner in which it ended validated the entire movie for me, but most people are entirely too sensitive to anything that doesn't conclude in a happy ending. I love movies that go against the grain and actually want to depress their audience, but I can see why this movie wasn't given a theatrical run.

Overall, it's not a game changer, but nor is it as bad as many people would have you believe it to be. If nothing else, it goes to show that even tired genres can be give a new life at the hands of truly talented people with a decent budget.
