Adam Wingard, Ti West, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, David Bruckner, Tyler Gillett, Glenn McQuaid and Joe Swanberg direct Hannah Fierman, Sophia Takal and Helen Rogers in this horror anthology about a dead man’s collection of macabre found footage tapes.
Every single chapter takes too long to get going then ends abruptly. Populated by some of the most unlikable protagonists ever committed to screen… and no… seeing them eventually devoured has no reward. If the intention was to suggest that only bullying narcissist would continue to film themselves through such strange nights then…. mission accomplished!… but I get the feeling this truism is an accidental by-product of the frequently ill thought out bursts of boredom. I personally enjoyed the creepy moments in Joe Swanberg’s Skype haunting entry “The Sick Thing That Happened to Emily When She Was Younger” but this was Natalie’s least favourite story… so what are you going to do? Avoid.
