The Gracefield Incident (2017)

Despite an incredible concept and some genuinely terrifying moments, not a single minute of this alien-invasion, found footage entry ever feels sincere. There’s a noticeable disinterest in story and character development, with an overabundance of expository dialogue that draws attention to its director’s inexperience with feature length filmmaking. In fact, the emphasis on special effects is so disproportionate that the movie often feels like a CGI specialist’s resume instead of a movie. In the end it’s a shame that a potent concept is wasted here thanks to insurmountable narrative and  structural flaws.
