Release date: 2011
I stumbled across this film as it had been uploaded to YouTube (it has now been removed due to a copyright claim, though I actually thought the upload was by the filmmakers). It was a good quality upload of the film – within the bounds and limitations of the actual film itself. Edit: a little while ago creator Dustin Leighton contacted me and told me that the film had been put on YouTube without permission and asked, as he was trying to sell the film, would I remove the review. I complied. Now that the film is available commercially we are in a position to put the review back up and ask you to note the full budget for the movie was $25k. The review has not been altered bar this edit and a link to the VoD.
Set in 1973 the film is in the “found footage” style (though we never know how the footage was lost) and it suggests at the head of the film that it was filmed on the first 8 MM camera able to record sound. This means, of course, we are in a world of grindhouse pops and whistles and this has its own limitations as we will explore later.

But you know what? Criticisms aside I have seen a lot worse. 4 out of 10. The imdb page is here and the homepage is here.
