Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Alex Miller]

UPDATE: Full Movie Review

I give the first half of this trailer a 0, and the second half a 5. Somehow that averages out into a 4, don’t ask me how. What is this movie about?! I mean, I know it’s probably something lame and stupid, but still this marketing is genius. This movie looks horrible, yet, I really want to know what happens. I mean is this chick actually dead? Is it all a big practical joke? Is this all staged? I’d bet money on it. I find it hard to believe that something genuinely bizarre (whatever it is) just “happened” to happen while they were shooting a lame documentary about finding a chick on Facebook. Movies about online-dating are nothing new. They at least go as far back as 1998 with AOL’s feature-length commercial “You’ve Got Mail”, if not further. This looks more like “The Social Network” mixed with “The Blair Witch Project”. I also don’t like this apparent trend of amateurish looking movies that pretend to be documentaries. In any case, their marketing stunt worked. I’m (cautiously) interested, but my gut tells me it’s gonna suck. Still an interesting trailer, regardless.
