Maria (Saorise Stuhr) is a minor vlogging celebrity, usually doing quirky shows from haunted places, but the last shoot during which she and her companions Mario (Zachary Chase) and Jake (Joel Hair) disappeared made her really famous: Originally on the way to a supposedly haunted abandoned asylum, they eventually got to make a stop at George/Georgina's (Michael Ciesla) cabin in the middle of nowhere, and George/Georgina is one weird kind of guy, a totally unconvincing crossdresser, bible-thumper and Christmas fanatic - but he gives them abode for the night. The next day, Jake goes out early to get some good shots for their next show - and is captured and made prisoner by Cesar (Robert Elardo). The same happens to Mario when he and Maria go out looking for Jake and split up. Then Maria meets Cesar, who pretends to be the most harmless of man, is revealed to be George/Georgina's husband, and he tells her about his spouse's terminal cancer. He also lures Maria back to the house - but we all know, disaster is going to strike ...


Maria's Tale is a quirky and entertaining little found footage film that tells one of the more interesting and eccentric stories the genre has to offer, doesn't rely on genre-immanent techniques too much, and keeps a light-footed approach to things, one that even allows for bits of humour. And a likeable ensemble cast of course helps as well to make this movie rather enjoyable.
