So it's not winning any awards, but the extreme difference in reviews is weird. So here's my no spoiler take on it:
Def not a 10, or a 1 either, my 7 i think was pretty accurate, maybe low considering how much they did with no budget (i assume). Too bad I can't throw in a .5 lol. Look into that IMDb!
I don't like found footage type movies, I thought the blair witch project was utter crap.
The acting in this movie is much better, actually I'd go as far as to say the acting was believable, which is rare, especially considering the script has to make them seem like actual people for that. Most of them did great.
They did some other things really well in this movie, including the use of the camera light, which I would normally find annoying, but somehow they made it work.
If you want to watch a half decent horror flick, and god knows there aren't many out there, this isn't a bad way to go. I think I liked it because it combined different kinds of creepiness, and it didn't do it badly.
Maybe I was lucky because I went in not having read or seen anything about the movie, but still didn't expect much never having heard of it.
