if reluctance on watching this brought you to IMDb reviews - you are not alone.
3 November 2013 | by roarshack80See all my reviews

if you are reading this now, you probably read these often. i feel that's an indicator of a person with a high interest in watching movies and appreciating them in general more than others. this leads me to point out that you may by iffy about what goes on in Skinwalker Ranch because the description sounds like a million movies you've seen before.

especially with common(aka: lazy) buzzwords such as:

"scientific research, supernatural phenomena, disappearance of, Inspired by true events..."

throw in the generic 'found footage' motif, and you have a carbon copy of another unoriginal bubblegum flick.

but there's something about these types of films that keep you coming back. because you KNOW they have potential to be a great movie. maybe you saw a movie with similar buzzwords ten years ago that totally ignited your interest for this type of thing. since then you've endured countless disappointing movies hoping to just find that one that will make your hours of disappointments worth it.

if that's the case, you are not alone. Skinwalker Ranch is THAT MOVIE you've been waiting for. it is definitely worth your time, and you deserve this rare story you've been wanting for.
