Trivia

Soon after the script was completed, events in the real world started paralleling the story. In the script, the film crew hears strange noises from the sky. Shortly after finishing the script, many viral videos of people filming the sky with strange noises appeared on YouTube. This was not a part of a viral campaign from the producers. After the script was finished, hackers actually hacked the Swedish Security Service, Säpo. The design of the 'thing' that attacks the film crew was originally inspired by a tick. The director was bitten by one while location scouting. He was hospitalized for 10 days with Lyme disease before the planned shoot and was close to death. The shoot was postponed for 15 days. At the military base where the film crew seeks shelter, a real surveillance camera was programmed to start recording if there was any movement. The camera started recording at 1:00 a.m. even though there wasn't any explained movement. In the recordings, a strange white light appears. In the original script, the crew was attacked by the thing with the red light at 1:00 a.m. See more »

A little disappointing
12 March 2016 | by mary-lakingSee all my reviews

Yes, I admit it, I'm a sucker for found-footage, as long as it's been done well. I loved "Blair Witch Project" and "Paranormal Activity", for instance. I had high hopes for this film and in some ways it was pretty good - it had some tension though it could have been scarier. But what disappointed me was that it over-explained, instead of letting the viewer sort it out for him or herself. I like having a puzzle that I need to work out from the clues. This film didn't content itself with clues - it told you explicitly what was happening - where's the fun in that? And that also made for no surprises and no real scares. Overheard conversations and explanatory audio tapes don't leave much to the imagination. Which made the ending credits all the more inexplicable - after being led by the nose through much of the film, I was scanning the clips between the credits trying to work out what was going on. I think I know, but the end result was that I went from being told too much, to something that didn't make a lot of sense.
