If you like stock webcam footage you're going to be thrilled
2 March 2016 | by wormsoftheerthSee all my reviews

Ratter is the latest film to attempt to cash in on the new and exciting (?) off-shoot of the found footage horror genre that utilizes only webcams and/or mobile devices. This is an inventive, yet kind of stupid and highly limiting concept which lends itself to films on a microbudget. Surprisingly, a few movies have done some interesting things with it such as Open Windows, The Den, Unfriended, and parts of the V/H/S series. Now, if you take those movies and remove everything remotely interesting about them you've got Ratter. It's a mix between The Den (where a girl was also on webcam for the majority of the film and got hacked/stalked), all the filler in V/H/S, and Paranormal Activity insomuch as nothing actually happens. Like, I kid you not when I say that 95% of this movie is pointless every day webcam footage of the main girl which will only appeal to the most easily excitable voyeurs who find entertainment in watching exceedingly normal people do equally banal things including but not limited to: chat with their mom (bonus: through skype and mom is off screen so its just main girls face for 10 min), drink coffee, do aerobics, clean their apartment, etc. Oh and because its "found footage" we're treated to the obligatory equipment glitch every 15 min or so because 1. it's the most overused trope ever and 2. to remind us that something creepy will totally happen...eventually...no seriously it's coming...just a little bit more banter and it will pay off...no seriously guys there is a stalker in this movie i swear...etc. After 75 minutes of pointless, go-nowhere throwaway footage where nothing happens, there is like 4-5 minutes where a stalker shows up and it's really dark and most of, uh, whatever it is that happens, takes place off screen. And that's it. I don't have anything else to say because not a goddamn thing happened in this movie. Easily one of the most pointless films ever made and nothing more than an incredibly lazy, cheap attempt to cash in on a recent trend. Avoid this at all costs and check out The Den instead. Even Unfriended was 20x better than this.
