In this low-budget 'found footage' style horror, a group of survivors are hunted by unknown predators after their plane crashes in a remote country area. Flying from New York to Los Angeles on New Years Eve, teenagers Trish (Abigail Schrader) and Jessie (Samantha Lester) record their trip with the aid of a camcorder. But half way though their journey, the plane suddenly hits severe turbulence, forcing a crash landing at a remote government testing area. As the dazed survivors emerge into the darkness, disoriented and confused, they soon find themselves pursued by a pack of voracious, blood-hungry predators.

I'm a little bored of the lost footage format, but this isn't a bad one. Don't get me wrong it's far from great, but I found it reasonably entertaining. A plane crashes in an unknown location, the survivors then find themselves stalked by a mysterious beast.

It's paced fairly well and the tension builds nicely. As is common with many of these type of films you spend most of the time cursing them for their stupid behaviour. And screaming all the time when being hunted isn't a good survival tactic :-)

It was ok right up until the end, the final shot cheapened the whole thing with the monster reveal. It would have been a better film without it.

If you've seen a few 'found footage' horror movies, the path this story takes, and any 'twists' within it will be very familiar to you:
We spend quite a lot of time getting to know the characters because a) it's a cheap way of bulking out the film, and b) you'll care more by the time something nasty happens to them.
The characters in this case are two sisters flying home, and the other passengers on their small New Year's Eve flight. Most of the passengers are identifiable and relatable, except for the usual 'jack-ass' guy with attitude (who nicely turns out to have a little depth later).
The plane crash is suitably terrifying, and the cast do a good job since most of it is portrayed through tumbling obscured camerawork and very convincing screams of terror - however, the meat of the movie is what happens once the survivors are on the ground.
Once the survivors work out that it's taking an unreasonably long time for help to come, despite the fact they can't be far from major towns, they realise they should start looking around. Within minutes, ominous noises and some shocking violence make it evident that not only are they not alone, but very vulnerable and in desperate need of shelter.
To discuss any more of the film would be to ruin the one ace every 'found-footage' horror has, which is the 'what happens next?' card. Instead I'll say that events unfold with impeccably maintained tension. There's occasionally too much running and too little plot-reveal, and some decisions irk, but the film kept me tense until the very end.
Unfortunately, that very-end contained an obvious twist that anyone who's watched enough horror movies will see coming from way over the horizon, and also a special effect so laughably bad that I ended the movie creasing up.

This is a pretty flaccid and lumbering "found footage" horror flick.
It's New Year's Eve and a group of passengers are on a New York to Los Angeles flight. There's a couple of teenage sisters, one of whom has a shrill voice like a harpee, a fifty-something fat and bald guy who's the token nasty bloke, a forty-something matriarchal air hostess, a thirty-something photographer, and a similarly aged, very pretty female Air Marshall.
Turbulence brings down the aircraft mid-flight. The low budget of this movie means that the crash sequence amounts to little more than lots of screaming - suffice it to say, this opening segment of the movie is very far removed from the aircraft crash sequences in the T.V. Series Lost or the movie Alive - Alive [DVD] [1993].
The film jumps straight to scenes of the aftermath of the crash and the survivors coming to terms with what's happened to them. Before long, loud roaring sounds can be heard from the surrounding forests, clearly meant to sound like a dinosaur...
I soon found myself hoping that a pack of starving velociraptors would turn up and put the actors out of their misery, but no such luck. You do get to see a fleeting flash of a monster's tail, which speaks volumes for the film's budget for F/X.
The film has a lethargic pace and is hamstrung by a dull script. The acting is amateurish and frankly irritating - not a single actor grabbed my attention. There is no film score. There's a frustrating lack of tension and scares. The first 45 minutes is basically a poor man's version of the very first episode of Lost.

This is another hand held camera, so it must be real film. Two sisters are flying on New Year's eve from NY to LA. The younger sister Trish (Abigail Schrader) is filming everything which allows some minor character introduction. It was so authentic, it was boring. It just so happens there is a professional journalist on board with a powerful light so he can shoot video at night. His ability to hold the camera still leaves much to be desired.

Once the plane crashes (description of film) one passenger Charley (Brendan Patrick Connor) provides for the internal conflict. There is a woman marshal on board (Everette Wallin) so there is someone with a gun. Fear and terror are generated by shaking the camera real fast and having everyone scream and shout at the same time. This worked better than the occasional glimpse of the rubber headed dinosaur looking predator.

They crash in the land of "it is always dark" and they keep filming with a light that would attract predators. Everyone has various amounts of bright red blood on them.

This movie reminded me of "Chernobyl Diaries" in its basic formula. What you thought about "Chernobyl Diaries" will determine if you like this one. I didn't like the "Chernobyl Diaries."
