When the object of the hype turns out to be as lame as this film, the whole exercise becomes just another Hollywood con job.
This review is terribly cynical. The idea that an independent film is a con-job is a staggeringly counter-intuitive comment. To lay blame of Hollywood's dishonesty on what is a small scale film is like blaming lawnmowers for global-warming: idiotic.The people who don't like this film seem to fall into one of three categories:(1) Those who are used to a horror film diet of shock and gore (think 'Scream' etc.)(2) Those that hate handicam.(3) Middle-aged women.These reasons are tenuous and self-centered.

I'm a 19-year-old male who liked the Blair Witch Project and absolutely despises stupid movies like "Saw" and "Scream". This movie was extremely poorly executed tripe. The only thing horrifying about it was the acting.I appreciate that they tried to make a horror movie based on suspense rather than gore, and it's nice that it was successful in a time when that kind of horror is not appreciated. But the fact remains that it was a pretty terrible movie.

I am a very easy to please female who does NOT watch horror movies. And I believed the hype. This movie was BAD. I was about to turn it off halfway as I felt no suspense.
Seriously, this has now wiped Eye of the Beholder off our worst movie ever watched list.
