Mockingbird ★★★½

Yet another film that Universal dropped from their calendars and straight into DVD bins. And so far, both of two "lost causes" that I've seen (the other is Stretch), are very solid movies. As for Stretch, I can see why they didn't go theatrical with that film, despite the well-known cast. It was, at heart, a niche film with a lot of ballsy moments. Here, I have no idea why this was dumped. The cast is a bunch of unknowns, but then again so are most horror films nowadays. And this one is a lot more intense and gripping than your usual studio horror films.

It's a shame this won't get a bigger audience. It's one of the few good found-footage films out there.

Grade: B
