Blair Witch Godzilla pretty much sums up this horror movie. The government has secured a video record of a young man’s farewell party which happens to capture a horrific monster attack on New York City. As with The Blair Witch Project, the premise is great but the film doesn’t live up to the hype. Both films have the same flaws: the characters are extremely uninteresting and no matter what is going on, the guy behind the camera manages to shoot exciting footage.
