I may love horror/thriller movies, but not so much with so called, found footage films. Though, I have to admit that more and more released films with that kind of genre are beginning to be tolerable to watch, atleast for me. Some examples are the famous Paranormal Activity, The Devil Inside, The Last Exorcism and REC.
The last one, I only got to watch it last week. I have no intention of watching it because I thought it’s just a lame movie. Boy I was so wrong. It was intense! The gory details of the movie are just so… I found myself looking away whenever there’s a scene of people ripping each other out (tho I’m very used to seeing those scenes in my favourite zombie movies). This one, however, is different.
Throughout the movie, I felt hopeless for the characters. They were trapped in a building with nowhere to go. I read the film’s target is to make the spectators feel the claustrophobic concept. Well, they successfully did. There was this one scene where a girl was trapped in a room with a freaking “zombie” like creature, with no lights! She can’t get out of the room because there are “zombies” waiting for her outside. There goes her hope slowly dwindling.
Overall, it’s a 5/5 for me.
