These reviews seem as fake as the casting list
12 November 2018 | by kay_rockSee all my reviews

I realize that Blair Witch started a tradition of pretending that your found footage is real, but it's no longer even funny: it's just insulting. Note that the IMDB cast list is completely fake. The character "Gavin York" is listed as playing himself, but is actually played by Seth Adam Kallick (who is listed as being the "casting department."

Even though it's obviously a found footage fictional film, they've taken the game of making it look real ridiculously too far. It's embarrassing.

And really, it's not that original. A myth monster that can be drawn forth by some sort of ritual. A documentary about found footage that can't be verified. It's all been done to death.

I enjoy these home-movie versions of found-footage horror as much as anyone, but there's something disturbing about it when the filmmakers go to such lengths, including the fake cast list and the mocked up reviews. If it hadn't been for all the nonsense I would have enjoyed it more.

Four stars because it is by far not the worst of this overdone genre, but it's certainly not the best, either.
