Writer’s Observation

If you are a fan of Jake Robinson movies, you will be apt to like this movie since it is one of those low budget indie movies that flow only for 68 minute runtime. This is the exact one that you will surely love to watch for.

The initial 10 minutes of the movie are the livestreams format as can be seen in the present Shudder hit, Deadstream. Their “live” comments during its stream are both realistic and hilarious. Jake Robinson used the actual Twitch streamers in making the comments and their results are purely authentic and comedy gold. For sure, there are some that will have to watch it gain so they can know what the comments are.

The Wendigo

The other parts of this movie are a found footage mockumentary method. It is a slow burn that makes it hard to drag of successfully; however, Jake handles to do it. The tilt runtime helps, there’s no fat on the movie, its moves in a brisk pace that it is never boring. The moment that the action begins, it became believable and frantic. Also Clint Apple and Jamie did their best job at the SFX makeup.

This film is well acted, no weak links, a really solid cast. Again, it is unwilling to single anyone out since they all create an amazing job. The casts are mostly unendurable youtube streamers and portrayed very believably. For a viewer, you will not adore these characters. The unlikable characters in the horror movies will all depend on the audience personal preference because, as for me, it is more fulfilling if they die. The overall solid effort which someone must check out when this movie is released is that, if you are a fan of found footage genres.
