Afflicted


Are there any horror buffs out there who aren't sick to death of found footage films that are basically all the same?  (Apparently there are because the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes are pretty good for this copycat.)

In this one two buddies go touring the world, and one of them hooks up with the wrong girl who effectively turns him into a vampire.  And the rest is exactly what you expect.  If you're new to the genre and you've never seen 'V/H/S', 'Chronicle', and all the other (better ones) that came out over the last few years, you'll be entertained.  But I have, so I wasn't.  And people need to stop encouraging these to be made.  There's nothing wrong with this movie, but unless you're going to bring something new to the table, I'm bored by them and y'all should be too.

'Afflicted' is now available on Video On Demand.

Grade: C

Who is this movie for?   Anyone who isn't yet tired of found footage horror films.  Personally I recommend 'V/H/S' and 'Chronicle', or the much scarier Spanish horror film '[REC]'.
