Trivia

During production of the movie, the film makers were contacted by the U.S. Department of Justice regarding one of the film's viral websites. Due to the perceived authenticity of the site, the DOJ threatened imprisonment and substantial federal fines, believing the website infringed on the department's likeness to locate the missing men from the film. After several tense days of legal negotiation between the production's attorneys and the Justice Department, the site was reinstated and continues to serve the motion picture. See more »

another found footage movie
17 October 2015 | by lunchoutkSee all my reviews

well, found footage movies are usually cheap and nasty affairs and the shaky camera is used to cover bad directing.

This one is different, the characters are believable, the effects are good and the directing is smooth and enjoyable. and here comes the BUT the go pro style footage is far too shaky and swinging, certain segments of the movie are completely unwatchable due to this and mildly nausea inducing.

The characters have lucid moments and are friendly and believable but start screaming and shouting in a manner that is unbelievable and ruins any form connection you have with them.

Nothing new and needs refining
