The 5th Kind: Review

Ok, so I just finished watching The 5th Kind. And by that, I am not referring to the Steven Greer documentary nor some video by the tech company. I mean the independent found footage film.

So my expectations were not great, to begin with. Both alien and found footage films generally leave much to be desired. That said, the film was solid and holds its own in this genre.

The movie also cuts away to interviews that have this ominous tone to them, and the ending certainly surprised me. If you’re a fan of alien abduction or found footage films, you could certainly do worse than this film.

That said. It occurs to me that it would be great to see a remake of the Lake County Incident “found footage” film. This in my opinion has been the best to date and would do great with an overhaul.
