Quotes

Ron: The internet may be a threat to those in charge but it's also their greatest weapon. Every single thing you do on the internet is monitored: every e-mail you send, every website you visit, every picture you look at on your wife's Facebook - all of it. And George Orwell predicted that Big Brother would be watching us one day, but what he didn't predict is that we'd create Big Brother ourselves and then willingly give ourselves over to it.

An intense found footage thriller
9 August 2013 | by alain-kapel5See all my reviews

This is an effective and enthralling film which uses the mockumentary formula very well. It actually builds an atmosphere in the first half, unlike so many other genre films in the past few years (there are always exceptions of course). Both main characters are simple, but believable, and the increasingly dangerous situations they find themselves in are directed with care. If you're a horror fan like myself, you probably won't be surprised when you realize where the whole thing is going, but you'll still enjoy the film until the very end (which is debatable, but original).

I can complain about the fact that the film doesn't dig that much into many of the conspiracy theories it presented, it just kind of mentions them, but I guess that wasn't it's primary goal... It also seemed a bit far-fetched in the last 15 minutes. Other than that, it was just fine.

I recommend this film to any horror fan out there, especially if you're a fan of found footage thrillers and you dig conspiracy theories.
