Trivia

The footage claiming to be from 1997 was shot on modern digital cameras in HD. To simulate the look of lo-fi analog footage, after the special effects were added in, the footage was copied to actual VHS tapes which were then re-digitized to finish editing. The analog defects are therefore real and not simulated. This had the added benefit of making the computer effects look more integrated with the original footage. See more »

Goofs

When Josh is first filming his reflection and asks a pedestrian to get an interview, but is declined; latter-day vehicles can be seen driving around in the background - despite the film taking place in 1997. See more »

A LOT better than I expected from reviews on here
21 August 2017 | by english_artistSee all my reviews

Just goes to show what is someones trash is someones treasure and looking at reviews on here I nearly did not bother watching this and that would have been a shame as its a good movie and certainly as good as any other found footage movie out there and better than a lot of them to.

I started to watch this with a finger close to the stop button on the remote but I never stopped it. In fact I was riveted from beginning to end. I loved the way they blended real events and news reports with the fiction parts of the story which really grabbed you and the lead in with all the footage of the kids messing around made you want to watch until the end to see what happens.

Don't always believe the reviews on here and watch this movie you might be very surprised.... I was
