    This is the most "WTF mate?" horror movie I've seen a while. Not really all that scary because its so grounded in reality but then even fails at making reality real. Stuff like it takes more than 10 seconds to wipe a hard drive or how hackers could supposedly activate the chic's computer while it was powered off. And the protagonist is just so hard to sympathize with when time and timeThis is the most "WTF mate?" horror movie I've seen a while. Not really all that scary because its so grounded in reality but then even fails at making reality real. Stuff like it takes more than 10 seconds to wipe a hard drive or how hackers could supposedly activate the chic's computer while it was powered off. And the protagonist is just so hard to sympathize with when time and time again she showed absolutely no common sense or shred of reasonability in her actions / reactions. And god the ending was bad. This was where the real WTF factor comes in because it basically just raises the question all over again about whether the whole thing was a hoax or not. Also it was chalk-filled with TV tropes everywhere. Bad. Would not watch again. Expand

    It is below mediocre, nothing remarkable, it is basically a little slasher horror film with an internet connection. The creators are just willing to deliver the same usual scares, with just adding complexity to the plot that is ineffective!

    Absolutely revolting - torture porn of the worst kind. Unless you are the type of idiot who actually enjoys crap like "Saw" and "Hostel" you should avoid this sorry excuse for a movie at all costs. Zachary Donahue should be banned from film-making for life for producing this filth.

    Like many found-footage films before it, The Den never entirely suspends disbelief. It doesn't satisfyingly account for how the characters are producing all the footage.

    This is the rare film that would actually seem even creepier watched from home on your computer, preferably alone to enhance its voyeuristic effect.

    At least it's admirable that Donohue manages to do almost all his shooting with either web cams, phone cams or surveillance cameras. But that does not translate into an entirely enjoyable viewing experience. Plus, there are almost no real shocks or scares to rattle you out of the stupor that inevitably develops from observing someone else fiddle with their laptop for much of the running time.
