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 Stay Away At All Costs!!! October 9, 2012
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A ROTTEN AIRLINE August 5, 2012
This is another hand held camera, so it must be real film. Two sisters are flying on New Year's eve from NY to LA. The younger sister Trish (Abigail Schrader) is filming everything which allows some minor character introduction. It was so authentic, it was boring. It just so happens there is a professional journalist on board with a powerful light so he can shoot video at night. His ability to hold the camera still leaves much to be desired.

Once the plane crashes (description of film) one passenger Charley (Brendan Patrick Connor) provides for the internal conflict. There is a woman marshal on board (Everette Wallin) so there is someone with a gun. Fear and terror are generated by shaking the camera real fast and having everyone scream and shout at the same time. This worked better than the occasional glimpse of the rubber headed dinosaur looking predator.

They crash in the land of "it is always dark" and they keep filming with a light that would attract predators. Everyone has various amounts of bright red blood on them.

This movie reminded me of "Chernobyl Diaries" in its basic formula. What you thought about "Chernobyl Diaries" will determine if you like this one. I didn't like the "Chernobyl Diaries."

2.0 out of 5 stars Govt conspiracy meets Jurassic Park...sorta. November 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Let's see: In Jurassic park they were so afraid of dinosaurs making it into the world that they chose an island isolated by miles. But yet we're supposed to believe in this movie that the US Govt is able to keep dinosaurs in a "restricted" area _in the US_ and not expect something bad to happen? We can barely keep convicted felons behind bars.

The suspense wore off very quickly as we never see even a glimpse of what is chasing and killing these people. I mean, granted that the classic formula of a horror movie is to not show too much of the "monster" as it is always believed peoples' imagination will always conjure up something much worse to them than anything you can show on the screen.

However, I don't think that always applies anymore. With movies being able to be released in unrated form and with computer graphics and physical effects at such a high point, I think a quality horror movie can be made much better than this.

The final point is that I found the ending very unsatisfying and cliched.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is really bad to be even considered a 'B' movie. September 1, 2012
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!!!
