Cold Ground ★★★

Essentially Blair Witch set in the Alps, this French found footage film plods along like most of its genre before delivering an extended final act that offers slightly more suspense than most of its ilk. Typical found footage frustrations exist here, including too-brief glimpses of the monsters, gory discoveries that are barely discernible, and mythology that doesn't exactly add up. Still, there's no denying that there are effective moments here (a gross-out impromptu surgery being the highlight) that make up for a relative lack of imagination.
