      AFFLICTED (2013) *** Found-footage horror flick that manages to breathenew life into the tired sub-genre thanks to newbie tag-team filmmakers(and real-life buds) Derek Lee and Clif Prowse as the duo embark upon aglobe-trotting journey …into fear, when Lee's encounter with abeautiful woman (Baya Rehaz) has disastrous results – namelytransforming him into a vampire. While the cheeky team acquits itselfin acknowledging the mythos of nosferatu it upends it as well in theprocess involving some jaw-dropping special visual effects in spite ofthe at-times shaky-cam viewpoint. With this calling-card feature lengthdebut lets hope this inventive creative duo not fall into the BLAIRWITCH trap of being a one-trick pony and continue a promising buddingcareer as filmmakers. Creepy good!

      Almost 15 years since "The Blair Witch Project" pretended to documentan ill-fated journey into the woods, its impact is felt more deeplythan ever. The found footage horror genre technically pre-dated thedigital filmmaking boom by nearly two decades (with 1980's "CannibalHolocaust") but the age of user-generated footage, when everyone with asmartphone has one trigger finger ready to hit record, has made thedevice too ubiquitous for its own good.

      The two actors performances are credible enough to legitimize theterror, only stumbling when they glare directly into the camera andprofess their fears (a "Blair Witch" cliché that has run its course,the confessional moment is the worst example of overstatement). Derek'sensuing plight across the continent, in which he scales buildings andnimbly evades various countries' police forces, suggests "Cloverfield"by way of "American Werewolf in London," but lacks the same wry,self-deprecating humor of the John Landis classic. Instead, directorsProswe and Lee established a macabre scenario and then uses it as anexcuse to run wild with the production values, piling up a series ofimpressive chase scenes and showdowns involving characters with thepowers to scale buildings and hurl bodies across the room. It's asuperficial delight to watch "Afflicted" gradually ramp up its effectswork, and while the scares don't sink too deep, the movie offerssurefire confirmation of found footage horror's latest stage.

      Its funny every time i get on these review sites I am trying to getsome inclining if i should spend some money to watch a movie. Anyhow,Saw Afflicted last night and well i have to say this … this movie waswell done … i was not wondering if or when will it be over. I hadsome scare moments which is always good for that lets me now that thesuspense to get to that part was well worth it.

      Now, I don't want to spoil any parts for it is an original concept …and this is no Blair Witch ( which i left before the end ) as somereviews mentioned …this was a great concept story line was originaland doing it on a limited budget what they did was awesome… this wellworth the time…

      This movie wasn't really promoted like most blockbuster movies are. Ifound the trailer for it on IMDb and watched it and was instantlyintrigued. I recently watched this film and I loved it. I has action,mystery and, sentimental attributes that are all great. I really enjoythese types of genres. The effects are pretty good and the scriptwasn't bad at all. Although the ending was somewhat predictable it wasstill a good movie heart felt in some ways. I hope there's a part 2. Soversus me trying to sale this film to others and/or being a critic myadvice is "Be Your On Critic"! See it for yourself. Everyone has adifferent opinion about movies that they may like.

      I have seen an obscene amount of Horror films and a crazy amount thatare Cam. I expected this film to be similar to Paranormal Activity -The Marked One which i found to be okay, nothing too special… Butimmediately from the start realised it was to take a much differenttone, which not only was new and fresh for the Cam Horror genre butalso to films in general. The film feels fun, fresh and upbeat from thestart with a good use of SFX showing a real 'College Movie' vibe thenquickly becomes engrossing and dark with plot twists and turns thatoffer something new to this over produced genre.

      Would Recommend

      Unbelievable special affects "If they even are" If a movie had to bebelieved this would be it the special affects are incredible.

      They didn't over do it on the gore like most movies of this genre do.However don't get me wrong there is plenty of it All in the rightplaces .

      One of the best believable movies I've seen in a while. The person whogave this a 2 star rating has no clue and may have stopped watchingbefore it got into it.

      Either that of they have a personal vendetta against the actors orsomething . Whatever the reason id dint deserve the low score at all Igave it a 5 *star* rating.

      It seems so real it had me wondering .."what if this is real and theyare just playing it off as a movie" It is that good.

      Not really a spoiler but just in case I said this might be …"Thebedroom scene when his buddy woke up and was looking out the window forhim .really freaked me out when he turned back" . Enjoy it folks itreally is an incredible movie !!

      P.S. THANK YOU to all who made this film.

      Recently looks like that the body horror genre is back, 'Contracted'and 'Thanatomorphose' are some of the recent titles about this kind ofrotting-living-corpses theme, 'Afflicted' is part of this trend at 50%with the remaining 50% inspired by 'Chronicle'.

      The story is pretty easy, two best friends start a one-year travelaround the world with all the video-tech stuff to document their tripand share it with the internet community. In Paris one of the two guyspick up a girl that infect him with a mysterious affliction (exactly ashappen in 'Contracted').

      From here starts the body horror and the explicit 'Chronicle'reference, with the initial discovery of "benefits" and then thegradual descent into the real nature of the affliction fringed withsome gore in the second part.

      'Afflicted' isn't a bad movie, is entertaining, there are a couple ofscare jumps and the vfx are OK but unfortunately at the same timeeverything is very predictable and already seen. Also the ending is toomuch rushed and not satisfying at all.

      Last thing (but not relevant at all)is about the part of the movie setup in Liguria, Italy. I'm Italian and i must say that the Italiandialogs are a bit strange, looks like that the Italian part weredirectly translated from English giving at the phrases an odd "sound".

      5.5/10

      Everything started with the project of the Blair witch, since then,most of young directors think that it's very impressive to go in anshoot the action parts of the movies like a video game, or like a homemade movie.

      The part that they don't understand, it's that when i go the cinema ilike to watch a movie, properly done, and i don't enjoy the cameramoving around, going in to the scenes, as if a senior person withParkinson will get a video camera and start shooting the movie. It getsreally confusing, and i forget to enjoy the film. It is a shame, it waslooking like a slightly entertaining history

      If i want a home video i made one on my next birthday, but i don't wantto pay almost 10€, that's the price en Spain for a Home video done withbadly pulse.
