Skinwalker Ranch Review

I saw this a while ago but forgot to write a review on it. Skinwalker Ranch is a paranormal movie based around the UFO abduction phenomena. Like most of these films I expect nothing from them, so I am usually positively surprised when I view them.

I won’t give any spoilers away here but I will give you a loose plot. It is very similar to the Blair Witch in that it uses a hand held camera as its source of media. Infact it could be called the Blair UFO Project. The story starts with a boy vanishing in front of his parents in a strange flash of light. A team of investigators are sent to find out what has happened and if there is indeed a paranormal explanation. That’s about all I can tell you without spoiling it. There are a few bits that will make you jump, especially if you have the volume up high.

The film is well worth a watch. The acting from some of the cast is a bit wooden and that does spoil it a bit. I also found some of the scenes a bit polished, giving a very un- natural feel to parts of the movie. However I did like the idea and didn’t hit the fast forward at any point.

Verdict 7/10
