    i thought it would suck but it doesn't. good filming and script.
    20 mins to end, to see if it fucks up.

    here, one of the characters who develops telekinetic superpowers crushes a car in a junk yard.

    I liked it... I'm not usually a fan of the camcorder point of view type of movie, but it didn't really bother me this time. Loved the school talent show part...

    yes to all of these responses, especially this one.

    i just watched to the end of the film and i have to say, i was surprised it was good. no spoilers but if you rent it it's a night of entertainment. way better than any 'choices' i've seen thus far in the film club society.

    I thought the previews looked good. Wasn't a big hit as I recall.

    Wait is it really one of those movies that looks like it was made from home video footage? Blair Witch, Cloverfield, etc? Previews didn't look like it.

    the technique mimicked it, but was smooth camera, so as not to confuse. in many shots it's clear the whole pov perspective is simply tossed out. in many of the big action scenes for instance. dammit now i'm spoiling!
