Critic Reviews for SX_Tape

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

It's a bad movie, the kind that presents itself with countless opportunities to create suspense or dread and wastes them.

It is difficult to become fully absorbed in goings-on when the characters keep having to deal with plummeting IQs.

Do you like your horrid "found footage" ripoffs riddled with amateur pornography? If so, SX_Tape is just the movie you've been looking for!

We Got This Covered

Its creepy setting, lighting and sound designs deliver some scares, but there's not enough in terms of surprises or cleverness.

NYC Movie Guru

There's no reason or logic in this found-footage yawner, and nothing rises to the level of even adolescent notions of sexy-scary.

Steeped in the gritty, grimy minutiae of urban decay and chillingly well-defined supernatural components that made [Rose's] breakout hit Candyman an enduring cult favourite.

Audience Reviews for SX_Tape


Starts off okayish. The idea was good. He ending blew and there was enough crappy effects and bad acting to make this easily forgettable.

Bernard Rose's "SX_Tape" is a paranormal, found footage film starring Caitlyn Folley, Julie Marcus, Ian Duncan, Daniel Faraldo, Diana García and Eric Neil Gutierrez. The story focuses on Adam and Jill, a young couple in the throws of a spicy, sexual relationship as it unfolds on camera. The course of the day, kinky sexcapades and subsequent horrors take shape in a blend of psychological thrills and nightmarish chills. The story of "SX_Tape" isn't anything new or overtly original but it is well thought out and executed nicely. In an attempt to blend the sex tape phenom into the horror story, Eric Reese develops a pretty convincing concept with some actual eerie moments. There is one aspect that fails in "SX_Tape" that is an Achilles' heel in many of the found footage stories, the plausibility that a person will continue to maintain control over a camera or keep a strong composure in the face of such a horrific, life altering moment such as unfolds in this film. It is debatable and doesn't really kill a story, but when it becomes a question mark for a good third of the story, it slows down the chilling nature of a major component in the film's main gimmick. However "SX_Tape" still manages to fully present a thrilling concept with a edgy, darkness that is entertaining. The acting in this film is believable, with most of the character driven drama hanging on one person, Jill, played by Caitlyn Folley. Her ability to emote on camera the elements of both happiness and terror is both chilling and captivating. In the beginning I felt she was more mentally challenged than I am sure she meant to portray in this free spirit, whimsical character but as the movie went on I found her really more convincing. Over all the film's intended vision stays present and creates a chilling nightmare. "Sex_Tape" holds it's own in the found footage, paranormal genre without being too cerebral or too mundane. The film offers a pleasant medium of drama, thrills and suspense. "SX_Tape" offers up a nice blend of effects both in soundtrack and effects. The horror elements are at a minimum as far as the visceral components but with the creepy sound effects, sudden shock moments and constant pace toward the inevitable "SX_Tape" gives the thrills in expected places and some not so expected places. I jumped and cringed several times in the course of watching this film. Bernard Rose gives good chills, and is worth checking out by any fan of paranormal horror, especially for the fan of this ever-growing subgenre we call found footage.
