This movie had the potential to be interesting. The third act is definitely the best part of this movie (starting when there's about 35 minutes left in the film, including the credits). That part is interesting, it's actually creepy and scary. The dialogue isn't completely bad, and for the most part, the decisions of the characters are realistic choices. However, this isn't enough to save the movie.

The first two acts are filled with inconsistent acting (unfortunately, it was mostly on the "meh" side, but there were good parts) and so much exposition. Everything is fed to you when there are parts that would've been easy to figure out on one's own. Even at the end of the movie (post-twist), when it's very clear what has happened, it's still spelled out for you. Additionally, the movie just isn't that creepy when it could've and should've been.

It's on Netflix (the American library, at least) if you want to check it out. The third act is a very good conclusion to the film, considering how the rest of the movie played out. I'd give it a 6/10. Time for spoilers.

The big twist to the movie is that the original group had stumbled upon military experiments dealing with teleportation. The new group then stumbles upon these experiments, encounter these mutated people who are now vicious and hostile, and force the characters into an area of the cave where the experiments were performed. In this cave they find a portal of sorts, decide it's their only way out, and it cuts to them dead, and over the next few minutes it's revealed they were sent back in time to the location of the original group's deaths as the tenth and eleventh members of the party the grandmother had talked about earlier, but I'll get to that in a minute. It's disappointing that the rest of the exposition in the movie is so force fed to you when in this scene the viewer actually gets to figure things out for themselves for a bit.

Spoilers continued in the next comment.

In the final moments of the movie, it's shown that by using the portal, the two main characters turn into the deformed monsters that were tormenting them in the present day, which is a very nice twist, and wasn't obvious (at least not to me). When the monsters are shown, it's very clear that it's the two main characters, as they're the first people shown post-teleportation, and you see their bodies getting moved around. For some reason, despite the fact that anyone who had watched the movie could tell that these were the main characters, there's a shot where one monster turns its head, revealing a tattoo that had been shown on the main female character earlier in the movie, thus continuing the trend of being force fed everything there is to tell.

Now, why am I explaining this? In the trailer to the movie, there's clearly a large emphasis on the monsters, and they don't even show up until the last 25-30 minutes of the movie, and even then a good chunk of that time isn't spent focusing solely on them. It would lead you to believe that the monsters play a bigger role in this movie than they really do.

Additionally, there are two moments (there may have been more, but considering how things are shoved down your throat in the movie, I doubt I missed any) when you can see the monsters crawling in the background. In one of these scenes, it's hard to believe the cameraman wouldn't have noticed the creature crawling around (it's a found-footage movie). That may just be nitpicking, but if it was that obvious to the viewer, it probably would've been obvious to the guy who was there, even considering how tension and adrenaline could've affected him.

As for the grandma, there's an interesting plot point where, right before the military officers recover the main characters' bodies after they travel through time, a couple who had been hiking stumble upon the bodies.


More spoilers continued in the next comment.
User avatar #24705 to #24704 - thedudeistheman (5 hours ago) [-]
This is a nice nod to the grandma's story about how she had found eleven bodies when she was part of the search team, when there were supposed to only be nine. I mention this because it's another moment that the viewer gets to figure out on their own. In fact, I didn't realize it until I was writing this out.

Warning: DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER BEFORE WATCHING THE MOVIE. From what I can tell, the trailer just plays events from the movie in order up until the twist. Before watching the movie, I didn't know this, so it didn't really ruin it for me. It might not ruin it for you either, but if you'd prefer to have at least some surprises before the twist, don't watch the trailer.

Dammit Bojack Horseman, I was expecting quirky Adult Swim-esque shenanigans, not the next train to Feels City

Anybody know where I'll be able to watch "Into the Dalek" after it airs today? Cable got fucked yesterday during a storm and I don't think It'll be back up yet. Don't wanna miss it because my semi-GF will annihilate me with spoilers (potentially as a result of me spoiling the previous episode.). And also I'm liking the new Doctor a bit. Anyways any tips would be great. Not really used to watching shit online like this so thanks, preemptively.

i dont watch Arrow....but does it piss anyone else off at the fact that they are using Batman's villains to go up against Arrow? seriously, i haven't seen deadshot and deathstroke, and so many more Batman's villain up on the big screen. just joker over and over again. i don't want to see another penguin or another catwoman, please. i just want new villains going up against Batfleck, like deathstroke and deadshot. it would be fucking amazing to see those two go against Batfleck. i mean who are they gonna use as a villain to go against Batfleck anyways? another catwoman? or another joker? come on DC, step up your game. learn something from Marvel, they are owning your ass.

If they used Clayface or Killer Croc, I would be so fucking happy
User avatar #24694 to #24692 - ilikethisusername (08/29/2014) [-]
well that wouldn't be bad. but i'm thinking they are going with Frank Miller's batman....that means batman will only go up against Superman, that's his only villain..uhhh...hero...wait...uhhh....will batman even have a villain?
#24695 to #24694 - anonymous (08/29/2014) [-]
I sure as hell hope so. But I would save that stuff for a Batman solo movie

Man, can you imagine a Law and Order: SVU Spinoff with Munch and Fin as the main characters? Just focusing around them, solving crimes, doing that little back and forth thing that they do......

I'd watch the shit out of that.

"If I could go back, I would marry a guy with a nut allergy"

That set made me laugh multiple times. I've never heard so many jokes about a wife killing her husband... Beautiful

So...i...just got an email about mission impossible 5 needing extras. apparently i'll be getting paid 845 dollars per day if i do it. kind of sounds legit...but i'm worried it's not, because 1, why send out a message?
User avatar #24669 to #24662 - feelythefeel ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
According to Google they are looking for extras. Whether it's actually them sending you the message or someone trying to use it to scam you I can't say.
User avatar #24676 to #24669 - huntergriff ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
hm....it says they're paying 845 dollars a day.
User avatar #24677 to #24676 - feelythefeel ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
What is?
User avatar #24678 to #24677 - huntergriff ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
the people working on the movie.
User avatar #24679 to #24678 - feelythefeel ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
So both the email and the movie people are saying it? The person who sent the email might have just seen that and copied it. You can share a screenshot of the email if you want, but it's really your call.
User avatar #24680 to #24679 - huntergriff ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
oh no, the email said it.
User avatar #24681 to #24680 - feelythefeel ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
Well it's really your call. I'd have no idea about these things.

So I just watched Firefly for the first time (now I see why people are still mad for being canceled, what an amazing show) and now I'm in the mood for futuristic space stuff.
I'm thinking about watching Battlestar Galactica, it looks pretty good, do you recommend it?
User avatar #24689 to #24654 - inuyuru (08/29/2014) [-]
Battlestar Galactica is ok for a while. But then it starts getting repetitive with that whole "everyone's a cylon" thing.

I reccommend Next Generation (Star Trek)

Watchmen(OST 2009) - Pruit Igoe and Prophecies
This'd give chills down any Alan Moore fan's spine, incredible.
User avatar #24656 to #24650 - herecomesjohnny (08/27/2014) [-]
i have almost no problem with the watchmen movie. It cut a lot of stuff that had to be cut for a motion picture to not be a trilogy. Also, cutting out the tentacle monster and pinning the blame on Manhattan was a good move.

It's kinda funny how some people complain about The Simpsons being almost nothing but celebrity cameos now, I mean shit man, they were doing it in 98 too.
#24653 to #24649 - anonymous (08/27/2014) [-]
Simpsons are still good, not as good as before but better than most shows.

What's the general consensus about Supernatural? I freaking love it.
#24651 to #24647 - anonymous (08/27/2014) [-]
I liked it until season 6, then it turned more into a bad comedy than a show about supernatural beings.
#24652 to #24651 - anonymous (08/27/2014) [-]
I think they try to hard to be funny.
#24655 to #24652 - anonymous (08/27/2014) [-]
Still the same anon: I also got tired of their constant arguing and sentimental crap, it got annoying

Are you kidding? His portrayal of a genetically modified human being specifically designed to annoy the human race to death is spot on.

That's his character, right?

i hated 22 jump street
it sucked
it was not funny
and did not even work as a parody movie

so why does everyone like it
User avatar #24639 to #24637 - averagewhitekid (08/26/2014) [-]
Haven't seen it yet, but I am trying to put it off as much as I can
As a college freshman myself, that movie is apparently "le 2funny4me" for every other freshman on campus, so its impossible to go around without hearing people quote the entirety of the movie everyday
User avatar #24644 to #24639 - drl (08/26/2014) [-]
the movie only has 2 jokes

you are gay (NO IM NOT)

drugs are funny

they just recycle these 2 jokes over and over

and i get that it is soposted to be a mockery of cop movies
but its just not funny
