  1. You find yourself waiting for stuff to start happening and when it finally does, all we are given is a lot of annoying noise before we are even presented with the "monster". The creature is obviously human and I think there where enough boys to bust its head in, not by venturing after it in its territory/the woods, but sticking together at the house on the look out. that guy who took the second rifle made the same mistake as the one who took the first, by then the lesson should have been learnt. They could have left, they had the cars, yeah OK but then it was too late. All I'm trying to say is that they could have gone about it the way they would a large bear, which is actually stronger than this cannibal. Question remains if there was more than one of these things. Not even the surviver at the end tells us anything. We saw too little and Blair Witch beats this without showing anything. Thats the thing it trys to be a Blair Witch without offering any new surprizes or strike a new chord in any way. What you feel is nervous, but not scared. No one phoned for help again?

  2. Alright lets go pick up a camera grab a bunch of friends and head over to a party and start filming for an hour. Well thats all this film is for 60 minutes. I mean I know character development is needed but this was just ridiculous. Nothing is going on at all and it is the 70min mark of the movie. I knew I was in trouble when in the very beginning of the film the distributor Brain Damage films pops up. I loathe almost every film from this label but this was a found footage film and I thought maybe Brain Damage couldn't mess this one up too badly. God was I wrong this film was just GOD AWFUL. By the time something happens the final credits are rolling. I give it 2/10 just because some of the actors were descent. Please avoid this and watch Evil Things instead……..

  3. A group of friends head out to one girl's family's remote vacation house in Bucks County, PA to celebrate Will's 25th birthday. Two of the guests are filming everything to give Will something to remember. As the night goes on, one girl goes outside to make a phone call and never comes back. Things go from bad to worse, and the cameras become the main witnesses to the horrors that befall the revelers.

    Or something like that, because most of the found footage in this movie consists of shots of the ground and of the low-growing foliage on the property. To be fair, though, this aspect bumped up BCM a point or two for me since this is more like how actual found footage would look. As it is, it takes 63 minutes of this 84-minute flick for anything resembling "horror" to take place. Then the remaining characters watch the footage again and the girls shriek and cry while the guys get macho and grab shotguns. Most of the rest of the cast then gets killed inside the house and there's no more footage shot.

    There's a framing device of filmmakers putting together a documentary on the massacre and interviewing family members of the victims but it doesn't really work because everyone is portrayed as being really nice kids and then at the party they're mostly really nice kids and then they're dead formerly really nice kids.

    It's nice that we get a glimpse or two of the killer but it really just left me wanting more. Also, the last ten minutes or so do generate a fair amount of suspense and dread – I wish there had been more of this and less exposition. As it is, Bucks County Massacre ends up being a pretty boring affair.

  4. I've read some of the reviews for this movie online and am shocked at how some of the people have negative things to say about it. But then again, not everyone is a TRUE fan of the found footage genre. I love movies like Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity, and Cloverfield. When I saw the tag line for the Bucks County Massacre was all three of these movies combined, I just HAD to watch it.

    I have to say…I loved it. I am so tired of the typical bloody, scream & gore-fest movies that try to scare you and NEVER show you an actual monster or demon. That's why I loved the BCM so much. The film makers made me feel bad for the characters, and instead of being scared every 2 seconds, I felt horrible for what happened to them. I still feel uneasy about it, and I love that. This movie should be shown in theaters nationwide. I wonder what everyone else thinks about it.

    For once, a movie that wasn't cliché and full of garbage. So what if it took a while for the monster to show up…..at least there was a monster!! Multiple times! ON SCREEN!!!! I hate movies that don't show anything on screen, that is getting old. Thank you to whoever made this movie, it's #1 on my list of found footage films of all time!!!
