Area 407 2007 UNRATED CC

2.9 out of 5 stars (39) IMDb 3.6/10

Area 407 features footage that feels too real for reality and too disturbing for fiction. This footage captured by two passengers on an airline flight from New York to Los Angeles spans the hours of one night until the next early morning. Boarding the plane on New Years Eve, two teenage sisters begin there impromptu filming of themselves and their fellow travelers.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on August 26, 2012
Format: DVD
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?

I nearly gave up on this multiple times, mainly because the soundtrack and dialogue is so irritating. The cast were apparently instructed to make as much constant screechy and whiny chatter as possible. The film is nearly entirely composed of pointless babbling with nothing else going on. This was like being forced to sit in a classroom and watch someone as they drag their nails across a chalkboard over and over, making that horrible sound. It's sad because the film had an opportunity to have been much better that was thrown away on nonsense.

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.

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."

...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.
