2012 Guide Analysis: "Another of those found footage movies with a sci-fi twist ("Cloverfield," "Apollo 18"), the story essentially plays like a spin on "X-Men" and "Misfits" with three high school friends gaining superpowers - namely telekinesis. As their powers grow one of them (DeHaan) begins embracing a darker side.

Shot for a relatively cheap $15 million and milking the social media angle for much of its marketing, the trailer released is interesting enough that many genre fans will probably check it out. Yet we've been burned so many times of late with terrible 'found footage' movies that even if it does offer something enjoyable it will struggle to get past that stigma."
