Storyline

Cowen Rosewell lives with a small group of old friends in a scruffy flat in a small English town. Like many teens leaving school in 2014, there are few prospects or opportunities for people like Cowen and he has enrolled on a BTEC media course as a way of passing the time. His first assignment is to record everything in a week of his life. At first Cowen dismisses the random acts of violence he witnesses as the business as usual in a small English town. However, when one of his best friends is savagely attacked by a stranger, and in defending her they kill her assailant, the inexplicably serious nature of the dead assailant's injuries alert them to a more disturbing reality. As events escalate, Cowen and his friends discover that the town has come under a mysterious malign influence which is somehow controlling organised gangs who are rounding people up and taking them to a nearby factory. The friends hide, hoping to escape, but their sanctuary is discovered and over run. Finally ... Written by Anonymous

Cheesy At Times But Still A Lot Of Fun
28 April 2015 | by HorrorOverEverythingSee all my reviews

So I'll be the first to say that most found footage movies are stinkers. It has become the genre that film makers go to when they don't have a very original idea and want to make a film for a low amount of money. I tend to avoid them but "Hungerford" caught my eye with it's trailer and I am very glad I checked it out.

The story starts off like most found footage flicks, we are introduced to our main characters and are given an explanation as to why they are filming everything, in this case it is a class project. I quickly noticed a difference in the characters in this flick as opposed to most films in this genre, they actually seemed like real people. It wasn't your usual group of beautiful people with wooden personalities, this actually felt like a real group of friends and it made me actually care about what happened to them.

The action gets going very fast, and once it does the movie does not let up until the credits start rolling. Unlike a lot of other found footage films, a good chunk of this film takes place during the day which means they do not hold back on showing you everything that is going on. There are not a lot of camera cutaways or shaky running when things get going, you get a front seat view to all the bloody action. The effects were actually pretty well done considering the movies budget.

The film does have its flaws as well. There were some moments where the dialogue was very cheesy and felt unrealistic. Plus I felt like the last 1/4th of the movie felt a little rushed.

Overall though this was a pretty fun movie. It never dragged or felt dull and it didn't feel like another generic mediocre found footage cash in. I recommend giving it a go.

7/10
