Has anyone seen this yet? It's getting really conflicting reviews, the 1s and 10s of the scale. I just saw it myself, and I'd recommend it, but damn is it a weird film...
Okay, think Blair Witch Project meets Call of Duty: Black Ops. Only with even less structure. Yes, you heard that right >.> Let me explain.
From what I can tell, it's 6 short films from an indie film makers festival, all of which were POV stories. They have absolutely no relation, whether in plot, tone or themes, and they REALLY vary in quality. There's only one that I felt was a complete waste of time, but the first one set a high benchmark the movie couldn't seem to make good on.
But the biggest flaw is the framing device. These 6 stories, completely unrelated, one not even remotely supernatural, are all connected by one of the laziest plots I've ever seen. A group of small time thugs are hired to go into a house and steal a video tape. They find a dead guy in front of a wall of TV's and mountains of tape. They start sifting through them, and eventually all get killed off screen without anyone else noticing them gone.
I honestly think this would have been better without the haunted house over-plot. It adds nothing, and just brings up questions it has no intention of answering. Very lazy approach.
But the short films themselves are very good! With the exception of the Paranormal-Activity-Through-Skype segment, they were all worth watching.
