Editorial Reviews

Boarding a plane on New Year's Eve, two teenage sisters begin an impromptu filming of themselves and their fellow travelers. Culled from their raw footage, AREA 407 documents what happened to them and the other passengers on that fateful night. After the plane crashes in a government testing reserve, the survivors find themselves pursued by unknown predators that, unbeknownst to them, are part of a top-secret government experiment. Using all the survival skills they have, the passengers' one goal is to survive the night and await the help they hope will come by dawn. Shockingly raw, AREA 407 is a thrilling account of one group of ordinary people's most terrifying night.

Utilizing the increasingly popular "found footage" genre that combines elements of the thriller into a faux documentary presentation, "Area 407" is never particularly effective at establishing its intentions. It's hard to discuss the flaws of the film without revealing too much, so I'll be purposefully vague. The movie charts a plane crash and its immediate aftermath in a desert region of the United States. The survivors of the crash face two imminent dangers (which I won't discuss) but the two threads don't really work well together. As the DVD cover positions the film as a monster movie, I'll say that particular element is handled reasonably well. You get occasional glimpses of the terror, but nothing of a full reveal until the very end. The more human side to the threat is a LOT more vague, unexplained, and frankly lacking in logic. I didn't necessarily hate "Area 407," it just offers little new to this overused film technique. You've seen similar movies and you've seen them better.

The movie begins on New Year's Eve as a cross country flight from New York to Los Angles is about to embark. Two young sisters are among the passengers and the youngest is filming everyone in the most irritating way possible. Not to be unkind or personal, but the voice is like nails on a chalkboard. Seriously, I'd have rammed a pencil in my ear if I had been seated next to her. But of course, she is super precious and charming to everyone else and they proceed to treat her like a two year old for the remainder of the picture. The plane crash itself is decent, and I loved the way everyone's head was splattered with massive amounts of bright red blood afterwards. A small band of survivors now must face the ultimate challenge to their survival. Who will make it through the night? What is stalking them?

1.0 out of 5 stars This is really bad to be even considered a 'B' movie. September 1, 2012
Format:DVD
This is one of those "me too" docu-drama a la Blair Witch Project, where some footage was recovered somewhere, and then someone put it together for your enjoyment. Well, it could be an excellent thrill, but the production shortcomings are way too many. The main character is cute at the very beginning but becomes too annoying a few minutes into the movie. Not to mention some other heavyset character, that irritates everyone including the audience. I was all the time wishing that he would get kill the sooner the better. It also seems like a lot of parts are missing or never explained at all (well... let's assume those footage parts were never found... LOL).

What could have been an excellent plot, was just trashed by whoever filmed this crap.

If you are the type of movie watcher who likes the kind of movies that has no script, no director, and where nothing makes sense most of the time. This is it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I WAS EXPECTING A "POOR MAN'S 'JURASSIC PARK'"... August 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...however, I was pleasantly surprised. I rather enjoy the "found footage" genre, but the story lines appear to have been done to death. A documentary crew was filming in an abandoned insane asylum... Yawn... However, when I saw the trailer for "Area 407," the first thing I thought was "Hey! Not an abandoned asylum!" The dinosaur in the trailer was a dead giveaway, but still, I held out hope that this wouldn't be, as I mentioned in my subject line, a "Poor Man's 'Jurassic Park.'"

Well, I can understand my fellow reviewers' frustrations, but I still liked "Area 407." It definitely wasn't the worst movie I have ever seen, and for a ScyFy (sp?) flick it wasn't bad. The Charlie character was indeed, as one reviewer put it, a caricature, the typical obnoxious air traveler who paid good money to fly, so damn it, "I want a drink." And one of the main characters, the young Trish, was adorable as can be but quickly became extremely annoying. Still, there was some character development. And I was rather surprised to see the DeLaurentiis name on this film. (Any relation to Dino?)

I bought the cheapest copy I could find in order to, uh, minimize the damage in case I ended up hating the movie. I'm happy to say, this was not the case. The "found footage" genre will eventually run its course, but until then, I will continue to look for hidden gems among the lumps of coal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining May 4, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This was an entertaining movie if you like the hand held video camera type movies. It kept my interest through to the end. The ending was perfect in my opinion. The only complaint I have is there was a little too much screaming action going on, they could have had the same effect without the extra annoying screeches. That aside, it's worth a look.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay Away At All Costs!!! October 9, 2012
Format:DVD
Let me break this down as honestly as I can: This movie was so bad my eyeballs wanted to throw up!! I am still traumatized at how lame and sorry this film is in every area: acting, direction, special effects, etc! EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS MOVIE SUCKS AND BLOWS!! Do yourself a big favor and STAY AWAY from this one, you won't be sorry! I just saved you from calling the Poison Control Center for your eyes - trust me! This is nothing more than CELLULOID EXCREMENT! I feel like my Constitutional right against cruel and unusual punishment was violated!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Thriller! May 1, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Not sure if the other people who left reviews watched the same movie I watched.

This movie is excellent for a B movie. It kept my interest and was totally unpredictable from start to finish. From looking at the preview, it was a nice surprise to see the ending. It is worth the time and money to watch this movie. Samantha Lester is a great actor who I hope makes it to the big leagues soon.

Also, I really hope this movie gets enough attention and advertising budget that people actually watch it in the theaters...
