Found footage movies are okay if they are done right. This one was done pretty well. I liked the plot quite a bit, and it was an interesting take on Andrei Chikatilo. The people that made this movie also must have done a fair amount of research into Chikatilo because they did a great job relaying his story. A lot of movies don't do that any more. They paid subtle respect to the true story of that real monster in a lot of ways that people may not have noticed. Chikatilo did most of his murders in rowed forest area's, just like where they are in the movie. The information about his brother is very accurate, according to Chikatilo anyway. The acting was pretty well done for a low budget movie, and it was a very creepy story.
A lot of the criticism on here isn't warranted. It seems if the story doesn't hit you over the head with the plot now days people don't get it. It's fun to have to think about what happened, give it a try. Also the camera was shaky because that's how a found footage movie should look.
Honestly I thought it was a pretty good film.
