Fans of low-budget indie horror might be able to forgive it, but for the rest of us it frustratingly squanders some eerie promise.

The scares - though effective, even chilling - come in scarce fits and starts...

Mayhem occurs over a succession of nights, and yawns precede dawns.

Atrocious is a primer on how NOT to make a found footage horror movie. The title is depressingly accurate.

The kids are screaming and the camera joggles us to the point of nausea but, at the end, the film's big reveal is just a cheap, dull shimmer.

Yet another piece of "found footage," but it's a pretty cool one.

Stylishly directed and palpably frightening because it leaves more to your imagination than most horror films do.

Perhaps it is more an ingenious footnote than a radical game-changer in the shakicam subgenre, but it certainly marks Luna as a new talent to watch.

Thankfully, writer/director Fernando Barreda Luna knows enough about building suspense to overcome the movie's many shortcomings.

Even if one or two things don't add up come the final twist, you're still in for a jittery hour.

The filmmaker is betting the bank on the unstable Blair Witch textures, and damn if subjective footage of implacable darkness, with screams coming from the woods you can barely see, doesn't still make your motor neurons jump, spark, and tingle.

Atrocious is far from tops in the annals of 'found-footage' thrillers, but it does know how to wrestle with expectations and ratchet suspense when it gets down to it.

Effectively creepy and impressively atmospheric, this is an enjoyable, well made Spanish horror that demonstrates that there's still life in the found footage format...
