THERE IS NO TRUTH,
This review is from: The Dyatlov Pass Incident [DVD] (DVD)
Holly (Holly Goss) leads a group of five students into the Mountain of the Dead to investigate the unexplained deaths of nine hikers...back in 1959. Their party goes missing and the bulk of the film is "found footage" hacked off the Internet.
The group loosely mirrors the Scooby-Doo gang. The plot reminded me of "Yellow Brick Road" while the basic flow of the film was similar to "Frankenstein Theory." The film keeps you engaged by dropping hints and clues along the way as our group wildly speculate as to what happened. 40 minutes into the film they arrive at the camping spot with an hour of film left. Like "Yellow Brick Road" their electronic devices act up. Unlike "Yellow Brick Road" you actually get to know what happens as all the clues neatly come together in the end.
I found the film well done for the "Found Footage" genre. The storyline combined multiple films and ideas to give us a something on the unique side. Worth viewing, especially for fans of "found footage: films. Oh yes, at the camp site they also have toast on a stick for you old Bud Melman fans.
Parental Guide: I recall one quick F-bomb. Near sex scene. No nudity. Sex talk.
