Good For What It Is

A social media Vblogger and his close friends find themselves the victims of an unending series of pranks after opening a mysterious package sent from an online friend, pranks that soon take a more sinister and deadly turn.

The obvious drawback to this film is its very low budget, and thus its very low production value. That being said, the film is aware of its limits and works within them, which is something to be respected (too many low budget films do not realize they cannot do the things they want to). With simple scares and creepy atmosphere, this film is rather effective.

There is a downhill curve, unfortunately. With only 45 minutes running time, the film peaks by twenty minutes and then heads downhill. It is a great peak, but a steady decline it never fully recovers from. The cast and crew are excellent and they have bright futures, but this might not be their big break.
