Reviews

When two young filmmakers select a crazed conspiracy theorist as the subject of their new work the task seems simple enough: Befriend him, gain his trust, and let his theories speak for themselves. Despite his street preaching their subject proves to be an articulate and intelligent man. Listen long enough and his arguments even start to make a certain sort of sense. It s enough to make you wonder if maybe, somewhere, there s some basis to what he s saying. And then he simply disappears. While one of the filmmaking duo is prepared to walk away the other becomes obsessed. This should not be possible. People do not just disappear. Not unless someone wants them to. What if he was correct? What if he was on the verge of exposing some greater scheme? And what if he was taken? And so begins an obsessive effort to reconstruct his work, an effort that points the duo to a high powered retreat and networking organization for the political and business elite.

The Conspiracy is unlikely to appeal to everyone, but if you enjoy horror films and specifically the found footage or mock documentary genre, then you are in for a treat.

The film starts off tame enough. Film makers Aaron and Jim discover a conspiracy theory nut and decide he would be perfect for a documentary. They go out of their way to befriend him and earn his trust and discover that far from being a tinfoil hat wearing crazy, he is articulate, intelligent and actually talks a degree of sense. Then, he disappears. Now this would be the point where they give up and make a different film, but instead they take a closer look at his research and discover what looks like evidence of a secret society.

I shall not say any more as I would not want to ruin the plot. I will say that the film is very well done. The end scenes filmed with the hidden camera in particular are easily as tense as the Blair Witch Project, and it is acted in such a natural way that it is easy to believe that what you are watching is the real deal and not a very clever mock documentary.

Whilst this won't be everyone's cup of tea, I would definitely recommend it to fans of this genre.

For those interested in the content, there is no nudity, a bit of swearing, and no violence shown on screen, it is all implied. I still would not recommend it to kids though, it is the implication and suspense that make this a scary, tense experience!

The Conspiracy - I loved it! I have to say, I love a good conspiracy theory and this film touches on a good chunk of them - including original footage! It's documentary style was brilliant, I kept forgetting I was watching a piece of entertainment and not actually a documentary! I loved the way they linked things and events together and the ending - well I don't want to ruin it - Its not a gore/slasher horror movie but there's plenty of creepy! - and it's thought provoking!

Format: DVD
This is a relatively interesting "found footage" docu-drama. It's been marketed in the horror genre, but overall it is more of a thriller.
Aaron and Jim are two thirty-something, amateur film-makers. They are making a documentary about a fifty-something, street corner conspiracy theorist, Terrance, who is constructing a clever conspiracy theory which links big World events like WW1, JFK, the Vietnam War and 9/11.
Terrance suddenly disappears. After 4 weeks, Jim decides to investigate the disappearance. He uses the theorist's newspaper clippings and researches, to uncover an organisation named Tarsus Club International. Tarsus is a networking collective body of World and business leaders, and Jim is able to link historic Tarsus meeting dates with the occurrences of the aforementioned World events. After a while, Aaron decides to assist Jim with his investigation.
Ultimately, the two film-makers inveigle their way into a Tarsus meeting at a secret location in a mansion. At this juncture, events unfold in a very sinister and scary fashion, as the two men learn all about "the Ravens", "the Lions" and "The Hunt".
The first hour of the film builds slowly but develops in an interesting fashion. There are lots of news flashes of big events like 9/11, interspersed with the found-footage of the two film-makers. The closing half hour takes place at the Tarsus mansion and is a very gripping conclusion to the movie.
This is a low-budget but competently executed film. The acting is good and the POV footage works well. The movie is strengthened by a very good final 20 minutes, which had me engrossed. I couldn't quite bring myself to give it 4 stars, but 3.5 stars would be merited.

Instead of being just another found footage horror The Conspiracy brings something a little different to the party. A couple of documentary filmmakers decide to make a film about Terrence, a conspiracy theorist who likes to shout his theories loud and proud on the streets of New York. Things take a turn for the sinister when Terrence vanishes and the boys take it upon themselves to investigate.

The film builds the tension from here quite nicely, there's a creeping sense of dread as things move forward. Is there any truth to the conspiracy theories? Are the boys being followed? Is it all just paranoia? There's a few twists and turns in the tale and it all builds to a satisfying climax. Overall a solid little thriller especially for fans of the genre, still worth a watch even if you're not.

Format: DVD
It seems to go without saying that lately everyone rips on `found footage' films which are basically shot on handheld cameras and have people running around shouting directly into the lens. The Blair Witch Project started it all off (if you discount the `Cannibal Holocaust' movies from yesteryear) which was widely regarded as a modern day classic, however, since then, we have had too many similar clones to take the genre seriously any more.

However, `The Conspiracy' actually chooses a - slightly - different route, by not having any supernatural element in it. Instead, it focuses on a couple of young video journalists who are filming a documentary on a conspiracy theorist. Then, when he goes missing, they discover there's more to it than meets the eye.

As with most found footage films, the acting is pretty good, but, what sets this one apart, is its air of believability. Because there are no witches or dinosaurs and you can relate some of their conspiracy arguments to what we've seen on the news, you actually start thinking about the world around us. Yes, this film is very much a work of fiction, but there's enough to it that's based on real life to get us questioning why the `powers that be' do what they do.

If you're one of the few people who actually like found footage films, then definitely watch it. However, even if you don't like that sort of film and you just like decent thrillers then you may enjoy this one, too.

(Probably more a 3.5 than a 4/5, but I'm feeling generous)
