Quote:A group of friends get involved in a deer-vehicle collision in rural Russia. In search of help they come across a cabin, where they find a photo depicting their accident.

Oh, sure, this movie is basically a retread of the old Goosebumps book Say Cheese and Die!, or that movie Polaroid that was supposed to come out last year before Harvey Weinstein stuck his dick in all the Weinstein Company's release plans. But you know what? Watching this film at the Popcorn Frights Film Festival, I had a friggin' blast! The acting is incredibly hokey (especially the one actress who can't let out a convincing scream to save her life), and the plot isn't that original, but the kills were good, the twist was great fun (and answered the logical question surrounding the evil camera -- it can't harm anybody if nobody touches it), it had almost a winking self-awareness to it that livened up the proceedings, and the real villain, upon being revealed, was wonderfully campy. This is the sort of cheesy teen horror movie I live for.

My review of this film, along with the other films I saw that night at the festival, is here.

I never realized how terrifying owning a camera can be. If Goosebumps and Tecmo have taught me anything, it's to stay far away from photography classes and antique camera's.

This sounds like it could be a fun mess, tbh.

Held by memories, in this moment, I turn into a coward
and choose a life in which I can`t even feel pain!
Held by memories, in this moment, I can`t go forward!
I can`t allow myself a life of wandering after something...

Oh, it was, with extra emphasis on the "fun". This movie was pretty fun to start with, but once the twist comes into play, it immediately becomes ten times more entertaining.

And now we all have cameras in our pockets...

Or Final Destination 3, which also ripped off Goosebumps for its one "original" idea.

If nothing else, this sounds like it's probably entertaining enough to be watchable.

Do you know what it`s like to be told how lucky you are to be someone`s prisoner?

I have something to say! I am not going to wait for Wadsworth to unmask me.
I work for the State Department and I am a homosexual!
