The Daily Rotation - Evidence (2011) Review

Sean of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Many would argue that found footage is merely a craze, and once it dies down, some will be glad. However, with our access to digital cameras, and fascination with conspiracies (even in-movie conspiracies that you know beforehand are fake) I don’t think it’s something that will die down so quick. People said the same thing in the early 90′s about slasher films, and then Scream tore out of nowhere and turned the slasher genre on its head. Since, it has become a past time of horror films to do that very thing, with movies like All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Hatchet, and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon gaining cult followings and critical acclaim, it’s proof that any genre will never stay dead forever. The reason I bring all this up is because I do enjoy found footage movie, more than most people probably do. I’ve even made a short found footage film just for fun it’s an interesting exercise in the art of moviemaking. After Evidence, I don’t know what there really is to say about the genre. It subverts everything you thought you knew about slow found footage movies with a shocking ending. Evidence is shock after shock, leaving your head spinning, and a final credits sequence that will add to your questions."
