Fell just a little short of being something good, thanks to Foley artists
I've seen worse much worse. Nearly everything bad about this movie was redeemable except for the sound effects.
The plot is somewhat original. There are many movies/stories built on the premise of some fiction actually being sourced from some fantastical actuality in history.
I thought the acting was quite good considering the quality and budget of the film. A few recognizable faces. The acting and premise actually were the saving graces of this film.
The pace was very slow, but that is to be expected from this type of film.
The special effects were non-existent which was great. I've seen too many straight to netflix movies that try to make something happen graphically that is simply not in the budget.
Now for me the Foley artists really killed the film experience for me. As soon as I hear a monster scream/roar regurgitated from some of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons and commercials the entire effect of horror is ruined. Especially when its a mockumentary. Why not just make up some sounds instead of using stock Foley sounds that everyone recognizes??
