Afflicted may be slightly more entertaining than most others films of the same type, but it's still unable to hide the fact that it's just as empty as most of them as well.

When it comes to the ongoing cycle of handheld horror films at the local movie theater, there are far worse choices than a movie like Afflicted.

Lee and Prowse clearly have filmmaking abilities, but Afflicted doesn't feel complete. It's more of a cinematic sharpening stone than a deeply considered merging of genre and style.

A mix of "Innocent Blood," and Cronenberg's "The Fly," with a hefty injection of "Chronicle."

The best found-footage movie since CHRONICLE. Ambitious, and beautifully shot.

"Afflicted" is as emotionally involving as a really accomplished special-effects sizzle reel.

Runs smack into a number of generic clichés, from the back-and-forth bickering about how to deal with the situation to a lazy underlying misogyny.

"Found footage" has become a tired technique, but Lee and Prowse, who also wrote the screenplay, give it new life.

A nifty found-footage thriller that marks a promising debut for writing-directing duo Clif Prowse and Derek Lee.

Ambitious in scope and practically flawless in execution, Afflicted is good news for horror fans seeking something fresh and chilling from two impressively assured young filmmakers.

Multiple shots are thrillingly disorienting without straying into incoherence-a tricky line to walk-and it's genuinely hard to tell whether certain effects [...] are practical or computer-generated.

...illustrates the full cycle of evolution that the genre has endured since it first creeped us out.

[Afflicted] evokes the escalating panic of a nightmare far better than the usual cheap horror film.

Nonetheless, we all know this terrain pretty well by now, and as Derek begins to change, each phase of his transformation feels overly familiar to anyone with a working knowledge of popular horror tropes.

Afflicted is an unconventional horror movie with the guts to successfully reinvent not only one stale horror subgenre - but two.

Cool, creepy stuff that should please horror nuts and relative scaredy-cats in equal measure.

...the movie's appealing, affable atmosphere [is] perpetuated by both the first-person presentation and the personable nature of the two central characters.

A step in the right direction for the burgeoning filmmaking style that still needs to figure out how to tell stories as inventive as its techniques, or at least find ways not to completely discombobulate viewers with the ones they're telling now.
