Follow is a traditional found footage style horror film about a young couple who take along a video camera along to document their camping trip. As the night goes on, the couple lose each other and the legend of the mythical Lamplight Woods comes out to play.Written by
The 1st person shooting technique has become a bit of an overused medium to tell a story but in the situation given with this and many other horror films, it works pretty well and keeping it short helped a lot. If writer/producer/director Hytonen had tried to stretch this into a 90 minute film, I think it would become a bit tedious and boring.
While the story, or rather the setting, wasn't anything terribly new, it was the dialog and how it was presented that impressed me most. I can't help but wonder if much of the story was made up on the spot from the actors themselves as it all comes very naturally. If it was indeed all scripted then Hytonen made an awesome choices in actors.
