CHRON­I­CLE (M)

A hole lot of mys­ter­ies. US, 82 mins

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIES -

This rather won­der­ful (if de­cid­edly er­ratic) found-footage ac­tion flick has sneaked into cine­mas with lit­tle fan­fare. I would ad­vise any­one who loves such hand-held-cam clas­sics as Clover­field or Para­nor­mal Ac­tiv­ity not to miss this one. And to see it as “cold” as pos­si­ble. All you need to know is that three teenage friends will be never be the same again – phys­i­cally or men­tally – af­ter ex­plor­ing a hole that has ap­peared in the woods. While there are some av­er­age stretches, there are also at least five as­ton­ish­ing se­quences where you can’t stop your jaw from drop­ping. Highly rec­om­mended to those who can­not re­sist a B-grade picture ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing A-grade re­sults. Stars Dane Dehaan, Alex Rus­sell.
