Black Water Vampire (2014)

Think The Blair Witch Project with vampires. Even though the film is a found-footage cliche, I found the story, acting and sfx to be above-average for an indie production. But despite all that positive, it's still a clone of a bad movie. It's all there: a mildly intriguing urban legend, a novice documentary crew lost in the woods, a missing map then a missing person, constant bickering and a mysterious lodging in the conclusion. It's an impressive first feature for writer/director Evan Tramel, but it's nothing you haven't seen before.
