Comments: I did watch this long ago because as everything happened I'd remember it. For two hours I kept saying to myself "I've seen this before", but I could never predict what would come next

It's an okay film with a lot of decent tension points but it's pretty amateur in that many of the plot points and interactions are unbelievable film school level. I grew fatigued from the eye-rolling

Good enough to not put down when I realized I'd seen it before but not good enough to recommend

Summary: A private investigator is hired to discover if a "snuff film" is authentic or not.
