    "Okay, okay, now look, I can almost make out what we're doing here, so yer gonna have to shake the camera some more till I can't. Really shake it. And you, I need you to look down that dark hallway and ask the question "did you hear that" again, just a coupla more times. And you, I need more hysterical screaming again in places where nothing is going on to give the illusion that something might happen." --- the director of this stuff that's literally right outta the Blair Witch cold cereal box.

    Decent things are done in The Tunnel for such a petty budget. It's a little bit Blair Witch Project and a whole lot Death Line. The concept of the film being a mockumentary rather than the standard "Found Footage" of Paranormal Activity 2, Cloverfield, The Last Exorcism etc. was an intriguing notion. It means that the underground shots (which are the film's focus) are interspersed with interviews and non-chronological footage. Though this struck me as a pleasant little flair of originality, it did sort of ruin the suspense that The Tunnel worked so hard on building up, continuously brining us back out of this terrifying world they created. I did come across more than a few people asking if there was any more information about the events of the film. They had indeed assumed that the whole thing was an actual documentary. The world is full of pretty stupid people, but kudos still goes to Enzo Tedeschi and Julian Harvey for an apparently believable script. Sticking to the tried and true method of "less is more", The Tunnel barely even gives us glimpses of what's going on. Though I suppose this leaves them with room to move in the future, as well as giving them a more believable angle and, let's be honest, less money spent on SFX. I did still end up feeling ultimately cheated by it all however. Then again, how can you be cheated by a movie you can own for free? While I'm on that, major damn props to Distracted Media and the crew behind The Tunnel for releasing it for free, and making it well known! It was a relatively inexpensive film to make, certainly, but it speaks for the team that they were happy to release their film to the public, caution to the wind, and hope it was just enjoyed. Which, all in all, it was. I have a bit of a soft spot for Australian Horror, and for POV Horror, so it hit the right buttons for me and gets some points off the bat, I'll admit, but it's still a solid little piece of film. And let's face it, you can own it FOR FREE! What's your excuse or not giving it a chance? Make up yo' own damn minds, shit... -Gimly

    A weirdly terrible movie that tries to offer alot but delievers very little. Avoid if your not wanting to waste a couple of hours of your life.

    I admire the way this movie was made: a free release, supported by "fans" and networking buzz, to which each person could contribute with 1 and earn a frame of the movie. The results are actually impressive. It's very well made technically and features an incredibly scary setting, that is as both impressive as it is opressive. It works wonders to much of the little success of the movie. Why doesn't it work? Because the director by trying to give a fresh take to the found footage genre, has made some terrible decisions. First of, the interviews just kill, literally, any suspense you might have from who will live and who will die. By the time you understand the interviews were made after the "incidents", it's just underwhelming to witness the rest of the movie unfolding. Secondly, it has an atrocious soundtrack that is way too distracting and pathetic when it attempts to create tension on some chase scenes. Thirdly, the actors and their characters decisions are pretty piss poor. The lead actress is as expressive as a rotten tomato (awesome joke I just made here...) and these grown ups and professional journalists/camera operators/sound guys act in a really childish way under such opressive circumstances. You're in a really dark unknown, unexplored, underground tunnel, with a forgotten water reserve in it and you just think it's fun to throw your mate onto the water? For kicks? Wow. What's more shocking was the guy who was thrown's reaction. And this is just a tiny example of behaviours that happen that just takes you away from the flick. Also, an interview to a random Hobo that lived on those tunnels is so excused and laughable I dunno how the guy who was editing the film didn't ask the relevance of the said scene. It was actually much scarier when our dickhead crew got to their shelter and just found it empty. But that's just me. Other aspect is the confusing start that just doesn't know what it wants to be: a documentary? A found footage flick? But then why does it have credits? Some props to the thing that lurks underground. It's hidden most of the time and his behaviour and actions are unpredictable and can creat some scary moments... when the soundtrack isn't interrupting.
