    Afflicted (2014)



    Best Friends Derek and Clif set out on a trip of lifetime. Their plan–travel to the ends of the earth, see the world, and live life to the fullest. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn. Just days in, one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction which gradually takes over his entire body and being. Now, thousands of miles from home, in a foreign land, they must race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely. Footage meant to be travel memories may now become evidence of one of the most shocking discoveries ever captured on film...and perhaps will be their only postcard home.

    Not a big fan of found footage-type films, but this looks good. Reminds me of Chronicle

    Described as a cross between Chronicle and VHS, looks good though,

    Saw this at Fright Fest this year - and I'm going to say, it's easily one of the best movies of the year.

    The effects are jaw dropping for what is essentially, a POV found footage - really enjoyed it...

    Sometimes, big budget DOES mean better quality.

    I agree, I was very surprised how good this movie was. A little slow at times but can't complain about it. The movie is very well made, smart, and somehow made the whole found footage spin feel fresh. The acting was quite good as well. I think that's what made the whole POV work so much, it was all believable.

    Just saw this last week, and I have to agree.

    The greatest thing about it is that it keeps going where most POV movies stop.

    This movie slipped by me. I picked it up on a hunch and knew absolutely nothing about it. Going in I honestly thought it was going to be some sort of flesh eating disease but this movie surprised the hell out of me. It was genuinely good and I am normally not a fan of "found footage".

    Great flick
