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.
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?Read more ›
This film tells the story of a group of 5 twenty-something friends that go away for a weekend to celebrate one of the friend’s 21st birthday. They leave NYC and take a road trip to the winter home of the birthday girl's aunt. An unseen "guy in a van" starts messing with them, tailing them, following them, beeping at them, that sort of thing, and everyone automatically freaks out dramatically. The “guy in the van” leaves them alone eventually, and they continue on their way. Of course, “creepy things” start to happen in the usual horror film fashion.
I cannot recommend this film. It is a slow build, a very, very slow build, and most of the film is an attempt at tension, atmosphere and setup. I actually really enjoy atmosphere, tension and all that spookiness, so I didn’t mind this. However, there just wasn’t any payoff for the tense scenes. There is a lot of teasing with no reward given. There are not even a lot of good jump scares, the signature funhouse move of all horror films. The end of the film, though finally delivering on action, was just a shaky, disorienting mess. I felt like the film makers were taking advantage of the “found footage” genre as a cover for a complete lack of planning. I felt like they said, “Ok, there’s not really a script for this part, and the budget is completely flat, sooo just start running, screaming bloody murder and PLEASE shake and twirl the camera around as much as possible. That should do it.”
The characters also spook and panic waay more easily than is actually believable.Read more ›

Pure junk found footage work, little tension or drama, poor acting, and not even the saving grace of some good action or gore- almost everything happens off camera.Published 5 days ago by RL
I hated this movie. I've seen it twice by accident. Seems ridiculous to see something by accident, but that's just how unforgettable the cast and events are. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Rommel

Not great, not horrible, but much ado about nearly nothing. No real payoff even though I watched through the credits with the extra footage.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
