Plot: 33 years after the infamous Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, three metal detector enthusiasts hunting for Saxon gold in the same region, capture incredible footage of UFO’s whilst filming their expedition. As night falls and with their navigation equipment failing, they find themselves facing a terrifying encounter with an unforgiving alien presence.
Review: There is something about found footage films that makes my skin crawl… Especially when they are:
A: A clear rip-off from other films, and
B: When they are amateur in every way possible.
This found footage film falls into both the above categories.
The plot (if you want to call it that) is straight-forward. Three friends (2 guys and a girl) go treasure hunting in Rendlesham Forest, with their cam equipment and metal detectors. First night in they see “strange” lights in the sky, and the rest you can guess. Underground bunkers; Poorly done CGI alien ships; and Blair Witch shots aplenty.
Rather than give myself a migraine from explaining what happens (I think you all know anyway), I will just summarize the basics of this film:
Plot – Predictable and boring
Script – Poorly written
Acting – I’ve seen better….
SPX – Shockingly terrible
Film Quaility: Grainy and amateur at best
There is a reason why this film was rated so very low on IMDB. Even though I am somewhat of a believer that any filmy needs a fair go, this was – without a doubt – one of the worst I have seen yet.
Do yourself a favor and spare yourself from this one.
Verdict: Excruciatingly painful to watch
My Rating: -5 out of 10
