Editorial Reviews

Five college friends take a road trip out of the city in celebration of a 21st birthday. Aspiring filmmaker Leo brings his video camera along to document their journey. While staying in a remotely located country home on a cold and snowy weekend their excitement quickly turns to panic and 48 hours later they've all vanished, leaving investigators without a single clue...until now. What's ultimately captured on video is not a celebration but a sinister and nightmarish descent into psychological terror. This riveting, critically acclaimed thriller - a pulse-pounding, twisting game of cat-and-mouse until its bone-chilling conclusion - will take you to the edge... and beyond!

My review contains spoilers.

This film borrow heavily from The Blair Witch Project. In fact, in some places, it's almost identical. Straight from the opening cut as the kids are leaving home and getting in the car, we realize this film is mirroring Blair Witch in a distorted way. This film blatantly rewrites some of Blair Witch's scenes even down to talking about food, doing interviews, etc. They even get lost in the woods, which, in my book was stupid. They carry on about being lost, oh what do we do, we are lost, we will die here. Well, since it did snow heavily the night before, and it's not snowing now, maybe follow your own tracks back. bet you never thought of that, little Einsteins!

The characters are very uninteresting. Only at one point, the lead female puts on a man's wig, and acts like another character's mother, does the film get entertaining.

The film took almost 50 minutes of bad acting before anything really interesting happens. And that is when a video tape shows up on the front porch. They watch the tape and realize they themselves have been watched. That concept was chilling. But that was it for spooky parts. There were a few minor ones after that, but, that's not even really worth the time or money to sit through this for that thrill.

This movie is TERRIBLE! IT has NO plot. What you read above is all there is (only worse.)

The "crazed" stalker is just someone who honked at their car and passed them, only later to be found stopped ahead for whatever reason. That is the movies crazed stalker. They get freaked out when they see the van in a -- hold your breath kids -- gas station filling up on gas. Wow. That has the thumb print of Satan all over it, right?

The guy has this impossibly big camera. It's somewhat smaller than the ones they use nowadays. It was the kind you have to put on your shoulder and he seemingly carried it everywhere. That must be some very strong battery (and arm muscles.)

These kids are the only kids who can get lost outside after a snow storm. They were all freaking out about "being lost". It wasn't snowing nor was there a wind. The camera guy panned around to show evidence of animal tracks but the snow was largely untouched (and the animal tracks couldn't have been made by an animal larger than a cat.) I wanted to say, FFS! Turn around, look down, and follow your tracks. Then again we wouldn't get award winning lines like "is that... AN ANIMAL?!" They're in a foresty area. One of the guys says "what? An ANIMAL?! Here? In the WOODS?! NEVER!"

The tension goes up when the poor, haunted kids get a two crank calls and a pounding at the door. After the prerequisite screaming, tears and OMIGAHS!, one goes out to see a present was left. Was it a dead animal? Nope. A poor, mutilated doll that said "your next"? Nah. Satanic symbols painted on the porch with obviously fake blood? Uh uh. It was a video tape. Do our heros A) call the cops? B) Get the hell out of dodge? C) get some weapons to protect themselves? or D) watch the movie?

This is a wonderfully creepy little thriller that I'm glad I found. I've watched it several times now, and the scene in the woods never fails to raise the hair on my arms. It will probably be slammed as just another low budget horror flick with no-name talent. But this is a great movie. The tension builds quickly over the course of two days and fulminates in the awesomely spine-tingling finish at the front door. Glad I came across this one when I was searching for another movie. It turned out to be much better than the movie I was originally looking for.

it started out interesting enough, the acting was fairly good, but the farther into the movie, the more disjointed it became. Never found out why the one girl was so sick all the time (thought she might be pregnant). Never found out who the van driver was, why he was after these particular kids, what happened to the kids, especially 2 of the females. Sorry, just considered it a stupid, unfinished movie, which seems to be the rage these days amongst "art" films. Frankly, I'll take Freddie Krueger or Jason VorHeese any day. At least I know what's going on and why. And so far as Blair Witch Project.. ahhhhh, now THERE'S a scary movie..

Great suspenseful thriller, this move has no special effects or outlandish gore, but has great horror/thriller ambiance. If you enjoy (or do not mind) "Blair Witch"/ "Cloverfield" style movies than this is right up your alley. Things that are unseen in movies scare me more than any special effects or grisly slasher film can ever provide. I am a horror buff and was surprised until the end.

1.2 stars. I really wish Amazon would finesse its rating system by having more than 5 stars. Yeah, Evil Things stinks, but it's not as bad as some of the ones I've watched. Not quite as bad, anyway. With 10 or 100 stars, a person could really pinpoint reviews. Probably Amazon has studied whether to have 5 or 500 stars and concluded that a scale of 1 to 5 stars is best.

Okay, movie review- it stinks. Completely predictable as are most horror flicks. "Found footage" by definition means that everyone dies. Shaky camera, bunch of friends on a weekend trip, in some isolated spot without cell phone bars, one blockhead with a brand new video camera, blockhead annoys his friends with brand new video camera, lots of hokey screaming, really bad acting, and tons of stupidity. Stupidity in the dialogue, acting, plot, production, etc. There is a modicum of originality- the end credits edit back and forth between the credits and a recap of the movie in snippets from the point of view of the killer / psycho / or whatever. Don't see that much in any moves. That lifts it up from 1.1 star to 1.2. My guess is that some talented person in the production came up with that idea but any other good idea s/he may have had was shot down by the rest of the hacks. The credit thing versus POV of "Evil Thing(s)" was a compromise.

Hardly worth the effort of watching. I like some background B horror movie on my Kindle when I'm making cute children's toys in my basement wood shop. I scanned through a dozen movies before settling on this one. By the time I realized this flick was hopeless, I had my fingers covered in adhesive goo and couldn't touch the Kindle so I was stuck (no pun intended). The good news is that I could run my belt sander for a minute or so and not miss anything because it was just that predictable.
