Storyline

Little by little, humankind has come to understand that vampirism is not only a real medical condition caused by a transmuting virus but also that the dreaded blood-suckers of fiction are living among us. However, in an attempt to publicly reconcile relations between species, vampire ambassadors embark on a daring media campaign to reassure the world that hunting mortals for sustenance is so passé--and what better way to prove it--than allowing an in-depth exposé on their painfully ordinary existence. For such an important task, an intrepid three-member crew of documentarians are invited to spend a week with a typical vampire household--but, soon--minor slips of the tongue will quickly crumble the friendly facade. But really though, who said this was a good idea? Written by Nick Riganas

Strong premise - a cut above the typical found footage film
5 February 2018 | by joedean123See all my reviews

Let me start out by saying I HATE found footage films in general. Dark, grainy, you can't see anything, shaky handheld crap with a bunch of people (not actors) who can't act. So when I got talked into seeing this with a friend I was VERY pleasantly surprised. But this is not a typical found footage film nor does it play by the rules of one. Known actors are used. The camera work is nicely done and I don't get dizzy as hell where I have to look away. I actually get to know the characters really well - especially the vampires. The premise is strong with bits of political influence. Everyone knows now that found footage is fake anyways. So why use people that can't act? It's insulting to watch alot of these films.

I just saw Phoenix Lights and before that only because Ridley Scott produced it and I was like yep, same typical crap with footage I can't see and everything pitch black with boring interactions until the last 10 minutes. But this film actually entertained me the whole way through. Yes, the acting in this is far superior to any other found footage film I have seen, especially Andrew Keegan, who manages to outshine the rest of the cast playing the sociopathic vampire. That being said, most of the cast is still solid. The weird and silent Selvin guy is a perfect opposite for Keegan. John Heard, who passed away, is very convincing as the patriarch. Esme Bianco is very elegant in her role. The weakest actors are the camera crew minus Mike or Thomas Ian Nicholas who does manage to pull off an arrogant director that tries to take all the credit for himself. I like him in this because I have never seen him actually play this before. Carrie and Benny tend to be a little stale and boring. Writer/director Brian A. Metcalf can actually direct and write. It is apparent in his composition, use of blocking and camera angles to make the shots far more interesting than it should be for being stuck inside a house all the time. He does not cut away from any important action. His writing is very witty and the actors know how to tell their lines. I get to learn each of the characters' personalities without spending an overly amount of time on each of them. There was entertaining music. It even felt at times like Clockwork Orange with the use of classical music and some of the shots.

This film is fun, entertaining and witty which is something that movies these days seem to miss. And while I expected certain things to happen, they were done in an entertaining way that I did not expect. Loved the ending as well!

I give this 10 stars because it's the ONLY enjoyable found-footage film I have seen in quite a while. But then again, I don't consider this really a found footage film.
