Quick Reviews: Infrared and The Prey: Legend Of Karnoctus.

A paranormal investigator and his production crew gain access to a mysterious, abandoned school but when the thrilling haunt turns deadly, the team must race to uncover the terrifying truth before they become the school’s next victims.

Feels like nowadays whenever a new found footage movie comes out it always ends up being one of the three….either really good and one of the best in a very long time, very bad or very forgettable and does nothing to help the genre grow. Infrared falls into the third category, it’s not terrible as it does have the atmosphere that it’s going for but the main issue like a lot of modern found footage horror movies is it takes forever for something to happen. Half this movie is waiting for something remotely interesting to happen which doesn’t until the last 15-20 minutes or so, the idea itself actually led to a few moments that heavily reminded me of Grave Encounters which I thought “oh cool so that means this movie is going to do something more with this right?” Unfortunately the movie does barely anything with it and just continues building the very bland characters. Overall there really isn’t much else to say here Infrared is not the worst found footage movie out there but it is one of the most forgettable.

Infrared is available on all VOD Platforms.

A platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan become trapped in a cave and are hunted down by a deadly creature.

Honestly The Prey: Legend Of Karnoctus isn’t as bad as expected, it’s just a very bland “group of characters (in this case soldiers) have to survive against some monsters” type of movie. There’s a Danny Trejo and a Adrian Paul (Highlander series) cameo which are kind of neat and don’t over stay their welcome. Outside of that there really isn’t much else to this movie, the acting is not that bad, the cave setting is actually a really good idea on paper it’s just not executed as well as it could have been. There’s some fun moments here that are entertaining enough, but this isn’t the type of movie I would recommend unless you are a die hard fan of these types of movies.

The Prey: Legend of Karnoctus is available on all VOD platforms.
