      Emilliano Jr S I felt so dizzy while watching. It could have been better if they made it like a real movie than a shaky found footage. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Joseph R This movie isn't terrible. My biggest gripes are the overuse of the "faulty camera glitch" looks and when the action speeds up, unfortunately so do the recording cameras. I liked seeing Justin Bruening in a scary movie, as I usually think of his character, Jamie, from All My Children. It was a delight to notice the vampire looked super familiar and that's because she is a sister to the youngest girl from the Nanny, Madeline Zima. There is much from the film that could have been cut to make things be less frenetic and shaky and could keep the run time down. It's a lot of film without the best payoffs, but it is entertaining on a dark night! Do watch at home with the lights off! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Jerod S The monster project is a "found footage" horror that gets lost in bad monster chasing for the final third of the film. Zuker can't act her way out of a hat. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review Jeremy R Out of all the horror movies I've watched that are on the cheap budget side this one is probably the best and it's pretty different and new Compared to high dollar Hollywood movies this one has alot going for it and puts high dollar films to shame. It's got a simple storyline with a twist at the end, it shows all the monsters in action and unlike Hollywood it actually explains EVERYTHING! It has a few jump scare moments, some good actors and its not as stupid as most horror movies are, I think I counted 2 instances where it's like " just stand up and run"! Anyways never listen to anyone who tries to say their a film critic who rates every low budget fil bad because they can't think for themselves to begin with. In this day and age nobody cares about what's good, they only care about popularity, yes I'm talking about everyone at rotten tomatoes and IMDb. Just watch this movie. It's a good one! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Audience Member How much is real and how much is fake? When you want the real thing it backfires in horrifying ways Another found footage movie that takes terror to real heights A documentary film crew runs a fake monster tv program but the director, Devon wants real monsters to deliver the scares whether people will watch or not He puts out a Craigslist ad to call actual creatures of the night 3 volunteers answer to deliver what the audience wants but it's way more than Devon and his crew bargained for These 3 individuals actually turn out to be real supernatural creatures and now Devon and his film crew have to survive the night being stalked and hunted by them There are some things we shouldn't go looking for, the devil takes many forms transcending the innocent, monsters come in all shapes and forms The scares are nicely timed, there's a good amount of blood, the creature effects are decent, and there's a pretty revealing story twist right at the very end Nothing new is added to this genre of filmmaking but for an hour and a half of action and horror combined with documentary-style techniques it's on par with most of its ilk If it's horror/monsters/found footage tv you enjoy this is right up your alley Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/08/23 Full Review jon c For 10/08/21: How much is real and how much is fake?

      Kimber Myers Los Angeles Times It breaks the cardinal rule of the larger horror genre, running 95 minutes without a single scare or moment of dread. Aug 17, 2017 Full Review John DeFore Hollywood Reporter Unimaginative and sensorily monotonous. Aug 17, 2017 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed The film is not boring per sey, but it does not really bring that much new to the found footage plate and it over-uses chaotic images ... Rated: 2.5 Apr 17, 2020 Full Review Jonathan Barkan Dread Central Let me put your fears to rest before we go any further... YES, there are monsters in this movie, and HELL YES do you get to see them. Rated: 3/5 Jan 30, 2018 Full Review Rob Staeger L.A. Weekly It's sometimes tough to follow the action, but for a short while it's breathless fun, as escaping one monster leads the group to the next. Aug 18, 2017 Full Review Maitland McDonagh Film Journal International An above-average variation on a familiar theme and style, and in a market glutted with scary movies that's no small achievement.
