Considering this was released the same year as Paranormal Activity -some 7 years after Blair Witch, it's a good variation on the film style; and does give the handicam itself that "extra character" that many others in the style have failed to provide.
Just from reading the plot outline, you know what's going to happen. The execution of it was very basic, although the cast was fairly good. The cliffhanger at the end was something I did not expect, however. I hope she lived.
I think she did survive, Karma Police, yeah. I think this film is too much: while the actors are great - really great - it's an ordeal to watch, it's completely over the top. Of course we watched, but we watched because we're perverted, not because it's "gripping". You know from the start what's going to happen, from the moment he 'gets his promotion' - British gritty realism yes, but a little - unsubtle, let's say.
I thought there were a lot of really smart, original ideas in this film. The climax didn't quite hold together as entirely believable for me, though maybe I just don't have enough experience with people like the characters in the film to understand them fully.
Worth watching, would probably mention to British friends.
