review by
Mike Haberfelner

A young man (Braxton Hale) claims to have been abducted and experimented on by aliens for all his life, and even now they are monitoring him out of cars with tinted windows strategically placed on street corners that always take off when our hero approaches them, and when he follows them on his bicycle, they just disappear into thin air. Now of course nobody would believe such a story, so the young man, a bit of a tech wiz, equips himself with hidden cameras, one even in his hearing implant, to collect proof - and collecting proof he does, including footage about other humans being experimented on, an alien-human hybrid (Emily Bramer) who seems to be sympathetic to his cause, and a Frankenstein-like abomination (Tadas Bendziunas) on the verge of spinning out of control. But if he thought having actual footage would somehow change his life for the better, it only increases his paranoia, to the point where he only feels safe in public places trying to avoid sleeping - but the aliens have long been onto him, and they have their ways to deal with him ...


Now by and large, I'm not a fan of found footage movies - but this one is different, because despite its loads of obligatory shaky camera footage and actually rather elaborate special effects, this is basically a character piece of a man falling deeper and deeper into a rabbit hole created by paranoia and conspiracy theories - and since the movie is seen from the protagonist's point of view, it can also be interpreted as his fever dream (and as such actually shows parallels to the sci-fi classic Slaughterhouse-Five), with his physical decline only mirroring his mental spinning out of control. But what makes this movie fall together quite as beautifully is, besides Braxton Hale's unnerving performance, that it doesn't cut aesthetic corners like way too many other found footage films, but puts an emphasis on atmosphere and tonal coherence, all resulting in a rather captivating watch.
