Evidence

I still haven't gotten tired of the found-footage gimmick.

I have to admit, it pulls me in every time. I think it's the urban legend feel of the lost footage idea. Reminds me of that scene in "The Changeling" when he plays back the recording from the seance. Chills!

When it's done well -- Rec, Cloverfield, even The Blair Witch Project (until the end) -- the "found footage" style of movie can be exceptionally engrossing.

Too often, though, it's simply a cheap way to make a movie that directors are trying to cash in on. The cameras are often too jerky, but worse, the plot is very thin. That was my problem with Blair Witch: it just seemed like the director didn't know how to end the film so he did just that -- ended it. I like some explanation or finality with my movies.

"Evidence," though, seems like it could very well fall into the former category. And if IMDB.com is right, it was made for just over $12,000 (see note above about making movies on the cheap).

I agree. I always liked the idea of basically looking through someone else's eyes.
