    Viewers will readily accept monsters, but the idea that someone would keep filming while evading said monsters — well, that’s taking it too far.

    Rose’s film is just another formulaic found-footage throwaway, notable only for its wannabe-porno sensationalism, replete with a climactic money shot that’s simultaneously graphic and underwhelming.

    The story of "SX_Tape" isn't anything new or overtly original but it is well thought out and executed nicely. In an attempt to blend the sexThe story of "SX_Tape" isn't anything new or overtly original but it is well thought out and executed nicely. In an attempt to blend the sex tape phenom into the horror story, Eric Reese develops a pretty convincing concept with some actual eerie moments. There is one aspect that fails in "SX_Tape" that is an Achilles' heel in many of the found footage stories, the plausibility that a person will continue to maintain control over a camera or keep a strong composure in the face of such a horrific, life altering moment such as unfolds in this film. It is debatable and doesn't really kill a story, but when it becomes a question mark for a good third of the story, it slows down the chilling nature of a major component in the film's main gimmick. However "SX_Tape" still manages to fully present a thrilling concept with a edgy, darkness that is entertaining.

    "SX_Tape" offers up a nice blend of effects both in soundtrack and effects. The horror elements are at a minimum as far as the visceral components but with the creepy sound effects, sudden shock moments and constant pace toward the inevitable "SX_Tape" gives the thrills in expected places and some not so expected places. I jumped and cringed several times in the course of watching this film. Bernard Rose gives good chills, and is worth checking out by any fan of paranormal horror, especially for the fan of this ever-growing subgenre we call found footage.

    SX_Tape is surprisingly better than most of this year's found-footage horror movies, including The Quiet Ones and especially Devil's Due. ItSX_Tape is surprisingly better than most of this year's found-footage horror movies, including The Quiet Ones and especially Devil's Due. It is not a very original movie, has some story issues and some outdated stuff. Despite the movie is better than it sounds and looks like it could be, plus it is very entertaining. A nice little shocker! Expand
