It’s not often you can criticise a film for not being found footage, but Man Vs is that rare case. Doug ( Chris Diamantopoulos) is filming his own low- budget survivalist TV show. Alone with his cameras, he finds himself being stalked by an unseen predator... but is the creature not of this Earth?
It’s the ideal set- up for some shakycam shenanigans, but instead Man Vs plays it straight – and boring. Sometimes, less is more, and here the competent camerawork actually undermines the scares. Shame.
