A cheap, cheating found-footage film. All of the action is shown off-screen, so the actors are basically shooting at nothing and it shows. The plot is incoherent, and everything is thrown together clumsily.
It's bad enough the first half of the movie is mostly walking with absolutely no diologue. It's bad enough that the last half is the same things repeated over and over again. It's bad enough the camera goes to static whenever something happens. It's bad enough all the characters are dull. It's bad enough that nothing about the movie makes sense. But to be 90 minutes long is probably the worst thing this movie could have done to me.
The acting wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. The script left much to be desired, though. And I know It is a "found footage" film, but the camera work may be the worst I have ever seen. Overall, I don't regret watching it, but I do recommend steering clear unless you must watch a movie and this is your only option.
This is pure dreck! I knew it was bad 10 minutes in, but have continued to watch it out of sheer morbidity to see if it could get worse. It did. In fact, it is like a marathon of compounding awfulness and boredom each continuing minute. Here is a synopsis of the movie - I can't give one. I can't tell what the heck is even going on. Is there a plot? Not that I can tell. Let me describe what is on the screen for an excruciating 2 hours. Horrific and migraine inducing shaking handheld camera following soldiers and dome blonde chic running through the woods. They occasionally use gunfire against something we never see. We hear sometimes hear overlaid "alien" sounds, but that's it. There you go! That's the whole movie. The "alien" was sort-of-kind-of "shown" in the last 2 minutes. It looked exactly like a robot my 9 year old made out of popsicle sticks.
Quite possibly one of the worst movies ever. No story, no depth, no direction, practically no aliens (total of 5 seconds maybe? and an odd skull), poor acting. Do not watch unless you need background noise.
Ok, so let's see... A reporter and her camera man follow a military group on a mission to locate some missing people and on the way they find a deserted camp with footage of an expedition that shows the existance of extra-terrestrial life... Then spice it up with an alien chase sequence... Bored much?? Typically when you watch any movie that features aliens isn't it rather frustrating that you never see the aliens clearly as the camera has this rather annoying defect where the picture goes funny.. No substance, no storyline, and even the characters are lame.. My advice, watch Star Trek, at least there are convincing aliens that you can see on that!
"Blair Witch" meets "Predator" without being even remotely as good as either. The Asylum has improved a lot and, as of late, has produced some pretty good films. This isn't one of them. All the annoyances of the shaky "found footage" genre are used here to no real effect. Promises much; delivers nothing. Skip it.
