Exists (2014)

The Blair Witch Project's Eduardo Sánchez uses his backwoods found footage expertise to direct Exists, a sasquatch tale. I don't know if this was intended, but within five minutes you will despise most of the characters. They are flimsy, juvenile caricatures. The upside is this a monster movie starring a vengeful, blood-hungry beast. With the use of impressive SFX makeup, stunt-work, and an appropriate buildup to the cryptid in question, Sánchez achieves a nice balance, never revealing too much. As much fun as it was to see the unsavory characters massacred, they truly ruin the film. There is not one member of the group I found myself rooting for.
