Black Water Vampire (2014)

A small group of documentary filmmakers head out into the mountains of Black Water, Washington, to uncover the mystery behind a number of brutal murders that were committed in the woods surrounding the area. What they will uncover will be more horrifying than anyone could have ever imagined. BLACK WATER VAMPIRE would have been an incredibly unique and original film, if ONLY it had been made about twenty years ago or so. Instead, it suffers from the sad misfortune of being a complete and utter ripoff of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and the countless other clones that have been left in its wake. Where most other filmmakers will at least attempt something slightly different to mask the similarities between these films, writer Jesse Baget and director Evan Tramel seem to think that they can hide in plain sight, and that adding a vampire to the mix will somehow make us all forget that they are conniving thieves. There is nothing to recommend in this dull, tedious film, which follows the same basic plot points as the characters interview the locals, get lost in the woods, experience strange happenings, then begin falling prey to the local legend. The only thing worth noting would be the creature design, which looks frightening enough in the dark. Only the dedicated fans of the "found footage" genre will find enough patience to sit this one through.

Rating: 5/10.

  3. The technical aspects of the filmmaking and acting were not terrible, it is simply a matter of plagiarism and poor pacing.
