THIS IS A ROTTEN AIRLINE,
This review is from: Area 407 [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
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."
