Creepy and disturbing, even for a die-hard "seen it all" horror fan Feb. 24 2013
By TashaNT - Published on
First of all, I want to ask everyone who writes a review for anything to be honest. I'm sick of renting stuff that has super high user reviews and turns out to be crap. Don't waste my $ & time so your friend gets exposure and dough. And yes, I'm keeping in mind that everyone's opinion is subjective, however, there have been too many situations where I, with an open mind, still had no idea how all ten reviews were 5 star, gushing praise, and the work was a trite piece of been there, done that.

Anyway, I watch a lot of horror films & have done so for some time. I can safely say I've seen a bit to a bunch of everything horror. So in rating this film with four stars, you gotta know that's me giving it a pseudo-educated, high acclaim. Don't let the found footage thing scare you off. Yep, it's been done over and over, but I've come to the conclusion that it's not a trend, just on the verge of becoming passé, but rather a new and permanent addition to the stock pantry of the many elements that can be used in filmmaking. It is appreciated when done well, and seems plagiarized when it's not. 

Besides the found footage thing, I think the other creepy elements include the fact that it's not in my native tongue (I'm a true believer that foreign horror is the best horror...I think the foreign nature alone - the way it separates itself by being the "other" through both the unfamiliar language and also the unique cultural establishments - make these types of films very outside of what is normal to me, and thus exciting fear...isn't fear housed in the unknown?) and because it's in black and white (also another flavor of the unknown...the restriction of color can separate us more, giving the film something else that makes it not as translatable).

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that this one has just the right ingredients to make it a successfully scary recipe. Highly recommended as something to watch as you work out. Cardio+adrenaline-raising distraction = crazy calorie burn! :)

Probably not what you are hoping for... Nov. 25 2011
By Dr. Tom's Reviews - Published on

I'll make this short - I rented this because I love "found footage" horror movies. This one operates on that premise, and the trailer looked pretty good. The first half of the movie delivers a promising setup - the last half is a complete and utter disappointment. By the end, I guarantee you'll be asking yourself, "is that all there is?!?" It's like the filmmaking team simply quit at the halfway point and just figured they could throw in any predictable, boring ending. And that's what they did. I suggest to my friends that they not waste their money on this film, despite the packaging and the trailer.

SPOILER ALERT: Al least half the movie is spent wandering aimlessly and (with one very, very brief exception) through a disused outdoor plant "labyrinth" utterly without any kind of surprise or "horror" or, really, anything interesting. You WILL fastforward several times during these tedious scenes.

Underrated June 18 2012
By Jeremy Storly - Published on
To start with, the first half of this film is very slow. You will wonder what is happening, and what is the point of all of this. In fact, it is truly like watching someone's home videos from 1995 -- very amateur, very boring.

Yet, this is what makes this film succeed in the end. These are truly human characters without any of the Hollywood tricks. They are real; either you sympathize with them, or you don't. End of story. If you don't, you give this movie a one-star review and go on about your business. But if you do, the suspense will grow on you gradually, creep up on you from behind, until you find yourself checking the windows and doors to make sure they are locked.

When it comes to this kind of movie, I am no easy customer. Only Carpenter's _Halloween_ and Kubrick's _The_Shining_ have affected me. _The_Blair_Witch_Project_ (the iconic found-footage film) scared me the first time, but by the second viewing, I was hoping for the annoyingly contrived characters to be killed. Even after several viewings, _Atrocious_ has retained its intended effect. It is a well-crafted thriller that may seem tame by today's standards, but which creates an authentic atmosphere of horror and suspense unparalleled by few movies released in the past few years.

Is it perfect? No. Even though it achieves its intended effect, it really needs something to draw the attention of its audience much earlier in the film. I suspect most negative reviews are written by reviewers who only saw the first half. Do yourself a favor and watch the entire film, then let's hear what you think. You just might be pleasantly (unpleasantly?) surprised!
Not too good sadly Oct. 20 2013
By Bobby - Published on
Format: DVD
The found footage genre can be quite the mixed bag. For every "Rec" we seem to get two films that end up as bad as "The Devil Inside". Sadly "Atrocious" is closer to the latter.

Two siblings (Cristian and July) like to investigate urban legends and tape them in the process. When the family takes a trip to creepy old house with a creepy past (and an even creepier labyrinth outside), the two start their investigation that they'll wish they never started.
Doesn't sound too bad right? Well, sadly the premise is about as good as it gets here. What could've been a very suspenseful and even claustrophobic addition to the found footage genre, just ends up a slightly tedious one instead. It's only 73 minutes, but it still manages to be a bit slow, and it takes a while to get going. Found footage films rely on their suspenseful buildups that lead to their spooky endings, but I truly didn't find the film to be all that suspenseful. I mean the Labryrinth was a great idea, and eerie in itself, but even that never fully lived up to it's potential. I actually thought the setting was more effective during the day scenes oddly enough. Once nightfalls, the setting is used for alot of panic, alot of heavy breathing, and alot of camera shaking. It's too bad.
The film finally reaches it's conclusion, and it's mildly creepy I suppose, but not enough to make up for the faults that led up to it. As for the acting? Not too bad. The characters are supposed to seem "real", and for the most part they do. Sure they make unrealistic decisions (you'll wonder often why they're still holding on to their cameras) , but their acting isn't too bad.

Overrall "Atrocious" isn't the worst of it's kind, and it may mildly interest people who love the found footage genre. However if you're don't, then this won't be the film to make you a fan either.

Not Enough Substance to Stand as a Feature Film Sept. 6 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
Shot in the "The Blair Witch Project"-like first-person POV style, "Atrocious" centers on the Quintanilla family of five, whose horrifying experiences at their summer house in Sitges are recorded in handheld video cameras. There is one good idea in "Atrocious," but it is not enough to save this Spanish low-budget film from being another forgettable entry in the overcrowded horror subgenre of found-footage thriller.

Christian and July, a brother and sister making a web show about urban legends, investigate a local legend of a ghost girl named Melinda, while staying at the family's country house. What follows is a series of familiar horror devices including a barking dog and a disused well, except the final fifteen minutes.

The 75-minute film has several creepy moments, to be sure, but they are few and far between. Writer and director Fernando Barreda Luna knows how to enhance suspense, but achieved only limited success, as the film spends too much time trying to set up the atmosphere. The film's first half includes scenes of the protagonist wandering in the deserted hedge labyrinth and woods, which are disorienting at first, but then gets boring.

Filmmakers of "Atrocious" seem to rely too much on the idea I mentioned above, a genre-bending attempt that might have worked as a short film. I will not disclose what it is here. I only add that being stretched beyond its limit, this idea does not have enough substance to stand as a feature film, which "Atrocious" strives to be.
