Film Review - Tape 407

I'm a little bored of the lost footage format, but this isn't a bad one. Don't get me wrong it's far from great, but I found it reasonably entertaining. A plane crashes in an unknown location, the survivors then find themselves stalked by a mysterious beast.

It's paced fairly well and the tension builds nicely. As is common with many of these type of films you spend most of the time cursing them for their stupid behaviour. And screaming all the time when being hunted isn't a good survival tactic :-)

It was ok right up until the end, the final shot cheapened the whole thing with the monster reveal. It would have been a better film without it.

Two teenagers fly from New York to Los Angeles on New Years Eve, their nightmare begins when their plane hits extreme turbulence mid-flight. The relentless weather attack causes panic and terror amongst the passengers until the plane ultimately crashes in a remote government-testing area. The handful of survivors from the crash, bloody and disorientated, are then insistently pursued in the darkness by unknown predators that, unbeknownst to them, are part of the government's top-secret Mesa Experiment...
