Idiotic sci-fi, from someone who's attempting to escape the "found footage" label by crossing over into "found eyeball-cam footage". See? These two things are not the same at all! Are you blind, or what?


Our director.Mathieu Ratthe, takes the lead acting honors as "Matthew", a man who becomes involved in an auto accident as he takes his pregnant about to give birth wifegirlfriend partner whatever to the hospital. Crash. No baby, but Matthew survives, as does the significant other. Months later, he sets up his empty eye socket (evidently a souvenir from the earlier accident) as a camera! He's going on an outing to a remote luxury cabin with his recovered gal pal and other friends (all of whom are millennial douches) for some relaxation.

All the men in this waste of time look alike. Scruffy half-beards bristle, but none of that five o'clock shadow can save them from their own stupidity. They reach said remote cabin and party! Party! Party! While getting down, a something whizzes overhead. Meteor? UFO? Bottle rocket? You can guess. Idiot eye-cam guy and his unshaven pals follow the whatsit into the woods. In a scene directly lifted from 1958's "The Blob", our bristly guys find the flaming something and handle the object without protection, because they're excited to have found this unknown visitor. No one pays attention to what might happen.

Later in the evening (this whole mess occurs during one night), the party monsters are subjected to scary noises and TVs that keep broadcasting a mysterious image. Stupid people wander around in the dark following said noises and fleeting glimpses of well, aliens. You knew this already and hope the whole mess you're watching is over soon. Did you figure out that the freezing "thing" the beard growers found in a dark hole in the woods was an...egg? Yes! Some CGI alien evidently dropped it's frozen progeny from a spacecraft (how that happened is anyone's guess)and is just trying to get Junior back on the spaceship. Mr. Eyecam and Co. run around breathing heavy and acting afraid, until the end, when the alien gets Junior and beams up. Months later, Mr. Eyecam and his gal pal have a baby! Will there be a sequel?

A terrible waste of time which is why fast forward on any device was invented. Shaky cam, ridiculous behavior from all the characters, stolen ideas from "The Blob", "Signs", "The Blair Witch Project" and other, more inventive scare-flicks. I should have known better when I saw the "Gracefield Incident" title, which is another way to lure viewers who instantly think this might have something to do with the "Cloverfield" franchise.

Recommended only for those with five day stubble who look like their bro pals and their whiny girlfriends stuck in the woods and have no sense. Stay away from this crap, the only innovation is the eye-cam, which ultimately serves no purpose other than a novelty. That point of view disappears about halfway through this paste-up of other, better and more compelling movies about wandering in the woods with a failing flashlight.
