Another solid recommendation from Bloody Disgusting! Despite being another Spanish found footage movie with a scared looking woman on the front, Atrocious is nothing like the classic [REC]. To be honest, I actually didn’t watch most of this movie, but not because it was bad — it was because I had my hands over my eyes. There may also have been whimpering noises.
The movie is slightly too long, and the gimmick of running around in dark woods with nothing but a camera is ever-so-slightly overdone to the point where the viewer starts to lose their tension. That being said, though, the characters are interesting, the surprises are.. surprising, and I enjoy the rural Catholic feeling of most Spanish terror flicks.
It’s not flashy, but Atrocious is a solid movie and I’d recommend it to fans of the genre!
