Synopsis

Storyline:
A lonely man with an intention of documenting every important detail is planning to kill his ex-girlfriend within 72 hours only to realize things are not as easy as he previously imagined.
User Reviews: A loner prepares to stalk and kill his ex-girlfriend and her fiancée.

Poorly conceived found footage drama, which doesn’t qualify as horror since it has no moment of transformation from good to bad, reality to fantasy. I did like the idea of the footage being uploaded to the internet, and the guidebook nature of the story is promising – but this really doesn’t deliver. Badly written monologues, badly performed, and badly shot.

There is some relief in the realisation that the actor is not the writer/director, and that there were other people involved – otherwise this would be a creepy ego trip for someone inflicting their mental illness on the audience.

Overall: Wish I hadn’t.
