Yes, it's a found footage film, but from the folks who popularized the genre and who did it so well with "Blair Witch". The production quality is excellent, the cast is good, and the creature is definitely well worth the price of admission. They did this right. Great moments of suspense and some real moments of pure terror. I'll never feel the same way while mountain biking again!
Look, folks. Bigfoot movies generally disappoint me. Either the production quality is poor, or the cast is terrible, the story is a joke, or the creature is laughable, or any and all combinations of those things happen and I just shake my head in disbelief. With "Exists" you get all the good stuff and none of the bad. The story moves along at a good pace, the characters, while seemingly typical (kids in a remote cabin) are actually pretty darn good.
Almost as soon as we push “play” things start getting weird for our protagonists after hitting “an animal of some sort” on their way to a cabin in east Texas. This film wastes absolutely no time (or tact) with subtlety. Just minutes deeper and we don’t just hear its howls, but we make frequent blurry sasquatch sightings.
Despite the abundant evidence of a sasquatch (or several?), this film starts out feeling rather boring. The characters aren’t interesting, the shaky shots of bigfoot aren’t really impressive (or effective), and I just don’t find myself caring about anything going on here.
One bearded vacationer, rather certain from the start of a cryptozoological presence, remains ever prepared, filming everything in hopes of capturing evidence of this large-extremitied hominid. Meanwhile, everyone else doesn’t care or believe—they just want to have a good time.
As things escalate in our opening act (i.e., the first 30-35 min) weak jump scares follow up lame pranks or party shenanigans, and the unsatisfying “action” is so abundant that no actual event ever really matters.
But hold on…is this film about to take a turn for the better?
Reminiscent of Ash’s twisted bridge marooning (Evil Dead 2), our bigfoot sabotages our survivors’ only way out—harpooning their car with a small tree. Bigfoot straight up Jason-Bourne-sprints through the woods in the most satisfying scene of the film so far! Later he gets a hold of one of the girls and it’s aggressively exciting and brutal, even if shaky and goreless, as he slams her ragdoll body around like Hulk whipping Loki. But what’s important to note here is that I think I’m beginning to forgive the boring first 30 minutes of this movie. After that stupid first act, this really picks up and becomes something fun! I’m not going out of my way to recommend this, but I must admit this ended up feeling quite worthwhile.
This film toes the line between horror and Tremors (1990). It’s not nearly as funny (nor does it try quite that hard for comedy), but it relies more on raw physicality than actual scares, terror or tension. Things started out a bit dodgy and the characters were all weak, but director Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project) pulled off an entertaining experience mixing feistiness and intensity.
While there are elements of " Blair Witch" sprinkled in Exists, the movie is a whole different beast. The Bigfoot is shown a lot and there are some very intense action scenes. This Bigfoot looks and acts scary. Without question, Exists has the best Bigfoot creature design and Bigfoot scenes I've ever seen in a movie. You get your money's worth, if you want Bigfoot carnage.
As for the writing and acting...well, it definitely could've been better. There are some cliched horror things that the characters say and do, which is a little annoying ( I.e. They film a Bigfoot and don't think anything about it!?). The movie starts out rather slowly, but shifts gears as soon as the Bigfoot appears.
I'm giving this four stars, based on the Bigfoot scenes and the creature design, but not the writing and characters/acting.
The ending to Exists is pretty cool. Here's hoping for a sequel.
