Nothing pulls you out of a scenario of dread faster than thinking: "Well, why would that character be filming now? Shouldn't he be helping?" or "Well, that falling camera sure landed in a fortuitous position."
A contender for worst film of 2014.
Bereft of interesting characters, clever dialogue and any semblance of humor or visual coherence, Exists offers nothing to justify its cinematic existence.
Featuring the usual fractured visuals, generic victims and pinballing cameras - both hand-held and mounted on bike helmets - "Exists" nevertheless has an unusually dreamy opening and a few surprisingly entertaining tweaks.
Generic script and cardboard characters hobble 'The Blair Witch Project' co-director Eduardo Sanchez's return to found-footage horror.
It's fun to be scared, but it'd be nice if the human meat were more interesting.
In a horror film there's normally at least one character you can't wait to get knocked off; in this case they're all ripe for the picking.
Has enough assets to make one wish the screenplay was a bit more novel than just another "people trekking through the forest" set-up.
Exists suffers from a lack of restraint.
Like its antagonist, Exists is a tenacious beast that refuses to let go once it's sunk its teeth in.
If you hang in there, the final half hour is terrifying, especially with the appearance of BigFoot who dominates the screen in every way. But the main problem with Sanchez' Exist is a lacklustre script with few surprises for its cardboard characters
A creepy and vicious found footage horror film with a surprising amount of heart and depth to it, to boot.
Eduardo Sánchez returns to the genre he pretty much created for... this? Why? After the great Lovely Molly, the super fun Altered you created a Sunday afternoon movie you shot in two days with your mates? What the hell?
There's absolutely nothing original in Exists. The characters are all immense clichés, surrounded by even bigger clichés. Worse of all, you get the explanation for why these asswipes are being taunted by Bigfoot early on and that ruins the only positive surprise about the movie.
