Evidence is actually three slightly incongruous film ideas in one almost effective package.

There are interesting ideas here, sadly let down by a weak central plot and formulaic realisation.

Moyer plays scenes as if he'd rolled out of bed at noon after a long night of shooting in Bon Temps and had his script pages shoved into his hands five minutes before the director called "Action."

Familiar, predictable, unoriginal... but not entirely unwatchable.

The story's strained, reaching plot goes so far off the CommonSense-o-Meter that there's more than enough "evidence" to convict this movie of impersonating a good mystery.

[A] combination of chaotic phony found footage and whimpering models.

You don't really care who done it, you just want it to be over with.

Neither suspenseful nor even comprehensible, John Swetnam's dashed-off script (carelessly directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi) throws up plenty of red herrings - and a stupendously idiotic ending - but not a single character worth caring about.

[Evidence] tries to camouflage a standard serial-killer story with digital flimflam and intellectual pretensions.

Again, that the film actually makes time to set up a purpose for the found footage is marvelous. The rest of Evidence doesn't share the same inspiration.

The always beguiling Radha Mitchell can't save this stunted procedural-horror combo.

There have been a lot of shoddy found-footage flicks over the past few years, but maybe none quite so shoddy as this.

The film isn't as smart as it thinks it is, and its characters are painfully generic.

One wishes it had spared us the remedial theorizing on media culture and artistic representation and license and less apologetically acted the part of a straight-up horror film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The evidence here merely suggests that the only things more indestructible than horror-movie fiends are the tired tropes their sagas employ.
