Site 13: Review

Nathan Marsh (Nathan Faudree) has woken up in a mental institution and has no recollection of how he got there. Worse still, he feels like there’s something inside him that’s screaming to get out and that soon becomes apparent when his possession announces itself to Sister Margaret (Leila Dean).

Seemingly in the best place for him, Nathan finds out that he was the sole survivor of an attack which may have unleashed an unspeakable horror into the world. The trouble is that it seems that the demon is still inside Nathan, so he must relive those terrible moments which were all captured on video.

Site 13 is a supernatural horror movie written and directed by Nathan Faudree and Tony Urban. The kind of movie that harkens back to something that may have been made in the Seventies, Site 13 leans on the tropes of horror whilst attempting something original.

However, the trouble is that Site 13 seems to want to do too much at once. Partly shot as found footage, the story takes the audience into the events prior to Nathan’s capture, showing the audience what happened. The problem is that this so often cuts back and forth from the past to the present that any suspense is lifted as soon as the audience are reminded that it’s being watched by a nun on a TV screen.

There are also many elements which are thrown in to keep Site 13 interesting, but unfortunately these elements seem to overwhelm the story. This leads to many incidences that which are hard not to laugh at because the movie takes itself so seriously.

A movie which may not be trying to be ‘so bad, it’s good’, nevertheless it feels like the story runs away with itself. As it goes back and forth, it leads to a final act that’s so over the top that the audience may not believe what they’re seeing.

Something which was perhaps best accomplished in Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce. A movie which is clearly far too ambitious for its own good, Site 13 may equally confuse and amuse its audience unintentionally.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
