It's funny. I am not a fan of The Blair Witch Project at all, but I've enjoyed everything else I've seen from Eduardo Sanchez . I honestly think he's one of our generation's most underrated horror film-makers and this little flick is no exception.
POV films about Bigfoot have been in abundance for a few years now, but most of them have been extremely low-budget and either very campy or purely awful. Exists seperates itself from the pack as the first great POV film about the topic for several reasons.
First being that it understands that it is nessacary for the audience to actually SEE a Bigfoot in a film about Bigfoot. And this film did it right, it shows just enough glimpses throughout the duration of the film, and goes full force at the end. Thankfully the effects are pretty good, and the creature is actually very menacing. Which is a mean feet for a Bigfoot movie. The noises the monster admits are bone-chilling enough by theirselves to send one into a corner.
There's some good suspense scenes, the acting is decent, the characters are loveable and it's just a solid little horror flick. Very pleasently suprised by this one.
