Movie Review – SX Tape (2013)
SX Tape (2013)
Stars: Caitlyn Folley; Ian Duncan.
IMDB Rating: 4.3
Plot: What begins as harmless sex games between a free-spirited artist and her videographer boyfriend turns much darker as the pair breaks into a boarded-up former hospital, looking for a space for a new gallery show. As they investigate the building’s ominous rooms and passageways, a seductive prank, meaning to arouse and terrify, goes terribly wrong – and what is discovered will destroy them both.
Review: “SXTape” is a “found footage” movie, that has jumped on the bandwagon of successful films such as “Blair Witch” or “Paranormal Activity”. While the title may imply that there are sex scenes that you can feast your eyes on, you don’t actually see anything, apart from one nudity scene early on in the film and an implied threesome which Adam later sees on the security footage.
The story of “SX Tape” is not anything new by any standards, but it was thought out well enough to bring another “horror found footage” movie to the market. While it was interesting to a point, and had a one or two chill points along the way, the movie did lack the real scare factor to keep this audience engaged.
For those who are GAC fans, you will notice that filming was done at the abandoned Linda Vista Community Hospital. Also where numerous other films and movies have been made.
There are a few flaws in this film. Such as for a building that has been abandoned for decades, there is still power and running water. Other flaws you can pick for yourself if you decide to watch this movie.
The acting was nicely done by Caitlyn Folley (Jill), but as for the rest of the film, I would pass.
My Rating: 2 out of 10.
