It's Found Footage
15 December 2015 | by bribarianSee all my reviews

FF has a lot of haters, so to get that out of the way, yes it's the "shaky camera" found footage type of horror/sci-fi movie.

I personal love Found Footage movies. I find them intense.

This movie was decent, kept me awake all the way through to see what happens.

It's not original in any way. The cast even talks about the Blair Witch Project. This movie is basically a Blair Witch Project except with aliens.

Four people (I think they were shooting a movie or show) are dropped off and left out in the northern woods of Sweden. You can pretty much guess what happens from here on out. They hear noises, one guy disappears, and then they encounter the aliens.

As with all FF films, the phones can't reach help. And they forgot to bring GPS.

If you can manage to overlook all these unoriginal flaws, the ride the movie takes you on isn't half bad.

7/10
