Made with just enough craft that, were you to stumble upon it late at night during a bout of insomnia, you wouldn't mind watching through to the end.

Further evidence that seasoned directors enjoy the found footage gimmick as much as the first-timers seem to.

I'm not suggest Harlin deserves better than the tepid frights of Devil's Pass, but chasing a tired trend with minimal storytelling heft doesn't do him any favors.

The film is ridiculous and laugh-out-loud funny, though it's sometimes hard to tell if this is intentional or not. Either way, it remains riveting because of its effective tropes.

Renny Harlin's fun, creepy found-footage horror knows when to be charming and, crucially, when to take its based-on-true-events conspiracy plot to its ridiculously entertaining conclusion.

Movie The Dyatlov Pass Incident is somehow named Devil's Pass here on RT and on IMDB. It is based on a true story about a mysterious event that resulted in… More
