Afflicted

(2013) ****

Two friends plan the adventure of a lifetime: a trip around the world, to be documented and posted online, every step of the way. A chance meeting with a mysterious woman forces them to change their plans.

I don't want to give too much away in the description because I think everyone on the blog should see this. It's a very original and enjoyable take on the found footage genre. The stars (who are also the filmmakers) seemed like real people, and their choices once things go bad seem natural. The European scenes were compelling and the movie gave me a yen for travel (though I might avoid the bars in Paris).  If you watch this movie, and I hope you do, do NOT skip the end credits.

And if my fellow biddy recommends it, I know it must be good!

Duly noted AC!

I must say I kind of want to punch both of those guys in the face based on that one picture.

?I watched this one outside of Horrorton season (I know, I know!) and loved it. I'm so glad you are taking some chances, AC!

Sounds like a winner, I'm intrigued.
