Loved it! It's the best dumbest film I've ever seen, but..
19 October 2019 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

For starters, the concept of a simple drone as the antagonist in a horror-comedy is genius!

This film is by far the best dumbest and cheesiest horror-comedy film I've ever seen, but I really wish it had ended after the fire (don't want to give too much away). The extra 5 minutes just took away from the normal entertaining nonsense that happened prior, and had me saying "ytho?" Had that been omitted and ended right there, I would've given this low-budget B-grade film a 9/10.

Still though, I enjoyed every aspect - the cheesy and entertaining acting and characters, the gore (lmao at bathroom scene!), the suspense and thrills, and that drone actually became a character to me, albeit the real star was some kid behind the scenes with the controller lol.

If you're looking for lavish cinematography or a deep message, you won't find it here. The Drone is just silly entertainment with some fun kills. It doesn't ask to be taken seriously; it just wants us to smile. We need more of these films.

It's a well deserved 7.5 rounded up to an 8/10 from me. If anyone thinks this review is fake, click on my username to see my 1000+ ratings and 700+ reviews. Then grab the popcorn and go see this little gem!
