An internet start-up keen for shocking content is sent a series of intriguing scare videos. Found-footage jumpscare horror that works pretty well for its first hour despite unlikeable characters, but which fails to deliver with a workable resolution.
Creepy, intriguing and oddly disturbing, found footage/paranormal film based around the death of a teenager and the events leading up to it. Told through documentary style footage and assembled bits and pieces. Exceptionally well executed. Watch it
A teenager escapes an alien invasion. More developed sequel to Hungerford, this time riffing on 28 Days Later and Heart of Darkness as much as Heinlein’s The Puppetmasters. Still some rough edges, but an improvement over the first instalment.
Four linked horror stories take place on the same Christmas Eve. Reasonable anthology held together by William Shatner’s drunk radio jock. Plenty of contemporary horror tropes dealt with: changelings, zombies, Krampus, spooky dormitory found-footage.
After a young woman on vacation gets bitten by a waterborne bug, she develops odd symptoms. Modest and small-scale body-horror flick with plenty of underdeveloped plot threads, but some icky moments and an interesting central performance.
A documentary team investigate a supposedly-haunted asylum, the site of a reality show gone wrong five years before. Straightforward jumpscare found-footage horror sequel (to Seven Nights of Darkness), effective for an hour before collapsing in on itself, storywise.
