October Horror Challenge #10 "Alien Abduction"
Here's the thing. I've been on camping trips where I've seen strange things, I've been on road trips where we ran into car trouble and the GPS took us the wrong way, I've lived these stressful situations, so I was totally on board with the characters as everything started to go wrong. Part of why I like "found footage" type movies in the first place is because they feel more real to me, I can see myself in those situations, and that puts me in the movie, which is creepy to me. This movie shows just enough of what's behind the strange happenings to be creepy without lingering too long and exposing bad special effects from a small budget. The jump scares had me jumping, and I was cowering in my seat, waiting to see what happened next. I love that feeling, and I love this movie.
