Hopeless acting kills tension,
This review is from: The Lost Coast Tapes [DVD] (DVD)
How someone can compare this to gems usch as Blair Witch and Trollhunter, is beyond me.
This movie is in NO way in their league.
I thought that the idea for the movie was cool and it sounded fun, so was hoping for at least a few scares.
But NO, only a few minutes into the movie, I was left dumbfounded by the bad acting.
ALL of them are terrible, their lines are delivered so scripted and forced, as if they in the back of their minds are thinking "what is this crap?"
And the actors tend to overreact to even the smallest things (the guy at the production house in the beginnig is the WORST!), so nothing comes of as even remotely realistic, as in Trollhunter, The Tunnel or Lake Mungo (all WAY better and scarier Found Footage movies).
The plot itself kindda stalls halfway through the film, but there are a couple of scenes that are cool towards the end, but that does nothing to save the film as a whole.
It's too bad, 'cause the idea had alot of potential but the outcome is below average.
