Editorial Reviews

AREA 407 features lost footage too real for reality and too disturbing for fiction. Following two teenagers flying from New York to Los Angeles on New Years Eve, a nightmare quickly begins when their plane hits extreme turbulence mid-flight. The relentless weather attack causes panic and terror amongst the passengers until the plane ultimately crashes in a remote government-testing area. The handful of survivors from the crash, bloody and disoriented, are then insistently pursued in the darkness by unknown predators that, unbeknownst to them, are part of the government's top-secret Mesa Experiment.

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.

I love found footage but this one was seriously lacking.The sad thing is w/the storyline it could have been a good movie.Unfortunately it wasnt.The characters were annoying & making bad decisions.Most of the movie was them talking & arguing.The person filming this was keeping the camera on the people ¬ where the supposed action was or where she was supposed to be filming.The effects sucked & it was funny how no one was trying to wipe the fake-looking blood off of themselves.Then a guy that throws up blood is still moving around like hes ok.Overall a bad movie.I was disappointed.

I would normally have given this stinker one star but this movie is one of those rare gems that keeps you laughing. The young teen with the high pitched voice and hyper mouth was so irritating I couldn't wait to see her die. Trish is the character's name, played by Abigail Schrader. I enjoyed seeing all the irritating people eliminated one by one in this movie so much , that I'm going to watch it again.

I usually don't give a movie one-star unless it is comprehensively bad because I respect the effort and time that goes into making a film. I usually don't say I completely dislike a movie, because I believe you can find a little something good in just about every film. I disliked this film from the moment it started, and continued with the sentiment all the way through. Why did I continue to watch? Well, like I said, I try to give a film the benefit of the doubt, but, sure enough, it had no redeeming features. I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think this movie had a script. I think they put the actors into the scenario and said "make it up as you go along". The movie began with a young girl rudely filming all the passengers on the plane, invading their personal space and inanely chattering non-stop until I wanted someone to toss her in the baggage hold, or out into the stratosphere. What could have been a fairly good premise about crashing into a forbidden landing strip reserved for extraterrestrials, or redneck cannibal nudists or something, turned into some obscure desert that just happened to be a reserve for Jurassic period man-eaters. What???
