SICKorSHIT Review: ATROCIOUS - "Jesus! Let There Be Light!"

IMDBs Synops

"April 4th of 2010, Quintanilla family was found murdered in their country de house. Police reported the existence of 37 hours of recorded evidence. "Atrocious" shows the real images of such evidence. Quintanilla family traveled to their old farm house in tges, where Christian and July investigated about the Legend of the Girl in the Garraf woods. Both of them used to record all day whatever they did. On the fifth day of their arrival they were found dead under strange circumstances. ATROCIOUS shows the last five days of life for Cristian Quintanilla and his blings. It also shows the strange tuations that they lived in those moments and which remain unexplained."

Okay, first of all Im just going to come out and say this, I'm a sucker for Found Footage movies! Rec, Paranormal Activity, The Last Exorcism, Grave Encounters, Blair Witch Project...the list goes on. I cant get enough of the genre!

There are many things i disliked about this film. The film starts out slow with what seems like a boring and pointless story-line about blings going to their country house to stay. Unlike other found footage movies the characters in this have NO reason to film the adventure, usualy in the genre they are doing a documentary or investigating, but in this they are filming for the point of filming! I have another nit to pick with this film, I CANT SEE! Maybe it was a decions by the filmmakers but during the night scenes in the maze i couldn't see anything! There were even a few jump scares that i couldn't even see due to the poor vibility.

Although there were many bad things in this film there were also some great parts. The idea was great, found footage in a maze, so many corners to turn and that gives great tenon. The last 10 minutes were absolutely fantastic, I was really not expecting a movie like this to have a twist ending but it did (Don't worry, i wont spoil it for you!). This film was also genuinly creepy (well, the parts where you could actually see), there were an array of scares and tenon building moments with a great pay off at the end.

Overall i would give this film a "B-" i thought it was a great experience and came full circle at the end. This movie gets the title "CK!!!" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
