  • A fun little thriller by 7

    Parrish, The Curse of Aurore Gagnon, may not vastly differentiate from other found footage horror movies, but this somewhat uneven horror film adds enough of it's own unique twists and turns to make a fun and thrilling ride.

  • A cut above the usual found footage by 10

    I generally avoid found footage movies, but this was a cut above, an engaging ghost story with winningly real actors playing a crew investigating a real historic murder. Eagle-eyed viewers will be rewarded with so many creepy shifts in the background, like ghostly faces or unsettling prop movement. The last ten minutes kick into a truly scary sequence. Highly recommended.

  • genuinely scary by 10

    This is the only film that i found scary since drag me to hell years and years ago.a found footage film about amateur filmmakers attempting to create a horror movie in canada on a working vacation.they are gaining knowledge on a local legend of aurora gargon (who really did exist) and by trying to gather information and playing with the dark arts they uncover some very sinister goings on.

    its is akin to the blair witch in the way its made, its a scary and very clever movie. well worth a watch

  • Absolutely terrible by 2

    A Youtuber buys a "mystery box" from the Dark Web, and receives a hand-made doll with a thumb-drive around its neck. He watches the contents of said drive and this is the set-up to the film. Original and unique. Promising beginning, right?

    WRONG!

    This has got to be one of the worst Found-Footage films I have ever seen. There are absolutely no redeemable qualities about this movie save for the premise, and every single facet of this film fails so miserably, I felt sorry for the people responsible for this mess. Did no one you showed this film to tell them the truth? Not a family member, not a friend, not a third party viewer? No one came out and flatly said, "That was bad." Because truly, it was. It was bad. Worse than bad, in fact. It was a colossal waste of time.

    The acting was horrible, the "special effects" were amateurish and shoddy, it's not scary and not much goes on. The constant movement of the camera made me nauseous, and I struggled to finish it. But I feel like I wasted my time. When a movie wastes my time and all I take from it are negatives, it is a monumental failure.

    Seriously, this movie was just bad in every conceivable way. Please avoid it. Don't waste your time like I did.

  • It deserves a better rating by 6

    Considering the quality of the usual 'found footage' offering (usually people - teenagers - running around screaming for no real reason), this is far better than many.

    It has a solid storyline and (apart from a few moments) the acting is superb by all of the cast - quite impressive considering the limited experience of most of them.

    The one thing I would have liked to see is more of a build-up to the ending - exploring the reasons for it a bit more.

    Otherwise, quite a good watch for a small budget indie.
