“It’s one of the best 3D and one of the best found footage movies I’ve ever seen.”
“delivers one of the best 3D experiences I’ve had in a theater since the format had its resurgence in 2009… [T]he 3D is used in new ways to brilliant effect. It’s one of the few theatrical experiences I’ve had in a long time that I won’t just suggest be seen theatrically in 3D, but demand it.”
“a brilliant sendup of the subgenre, a loving tribute to found footage, and one of the best surprises in horror this year.”

“We care enough about these people that just watching a movie about them hanging out in a cabin and trying to make a movie would be completely satisfying even without any of the horror stuff.

The construction is so goddamn clever.”
