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 »

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
