User Review

Not very good


Blah blah blah....Gemma wants to get on to big brother(uk)...her and her boyfriend and another friend set out to make a showreel for her audition. They get sidetracked and end up at some remote place where the two boys plan to secretly film a swingers party.

The movie starts out descent. The characters are fairly cliché. I'd not want to see Gemma on BB. Nor Danny, maybe Nate, but idk probably not, they're all rather boring. I suppose the only reason I'd say it starts out descent is because I enjoy BB so much. I suppose they use that to an advantage.

A lot of the movie is just them walking around exploring this place. Scaring each other. A whole lot of nothing. Randomly shots of the characters family members are thrown in, which adds nothing. As the movie progresses it tries to make a weak attempt at making it seem the characters are breaking down, and turning on one another and it felt very forced and just boring.

As far as the whole shaky cam thing, and trying to make me(a viewer) believe this was real...absolute failure.

I've enjoyed The blair witch, paranormal activity, abnormal activity, grave encounters....but this, this is not on's rubbish.

I could not keep focus, it was just very boring.
