  • It's been 15 years - can we stop remaking "The Blair Witch Project" already?

  • Mundane conversations and outings drag on while the central mystery takes baby steps forward, suggesting that a shorter running time or a more developed script might have better served the originality of the premise.

  • Imagine for a moment what someone like Roman Polanski could do with such a loaded nightmare scenario. And then marvel at how thoroughly it's wasted in this threadbare throwaway ...

  • There are many things absent from this found-footage horror movie, including suspense, logic, and originality.

  • Absence has its moments, but in its determination not to be sensationalistic, it winds up often being far too low-key for its own good.

  • There's nothing here the best entries in V/H/S didn't do better in 10 minutes or less, and with the decency to kill off their unbearable protagonists much faster.

    This is The Fourth Kind meets Paranormal Activity in a really bad way. Most of the dialogue is unnecessary, trying too hard to make it seem real. Unfortunately, what that did is lose my interest in the process.
