    Fixed cameras lend themselves well to dimly lit effects and shrewd obfuscation, and McGinn proves a fine hand at stock-horror misdirection.

    The latest—and perhaps dreariest—horror film to employ a found-footage conceit.

    I have a friend in this movie so I am obliged to say it was freaking amazing. I do not think that it should have been rated R, because vulgar language is not needed for an R rating Collapse

    I just hate the fact that it is a Found-Footage horror film because it makes it a big cliche, but who knows, it could turn out pretty good! But in fact, it would have been ten times better. Skinwalkers Ranch obviously is a rushed horror film done with hand held cameras. I hated found footage horror films since "The BELL witch haunting" if anyone knows this one. Regarding Skinwalkers Ranch, it has one of the best CGI i've seen in horror movies, it is done extremely well. I liked the look of the CGI more than the whole film, I loved the credits at the end, I loved the alien ships, I loved the alien and the fact that only one alien is shown terrorizing the crew. The acting is better than other indie horror films, but the whole found footage style is ruining the image of the film in the eyes of the movie buffs (I wasn't looking forward to this just because of the found footage aspect of the film). The whole plot is not as original but better than recents. The beautiful CGI reminded me of "Signs" which is a masterpiece. I appreciate the hard work on aspects of the film, but I can't ignore the fact that it is rushed & found footage, I swear it would've been really better if it was cinematically shot, but unfortunately it is not so i WON'T FULLY RECOMMENDED IT but you might want to give it a shot. For indie lovers & sci-fi lovers. Expand
