Banda Andy Bakera new horror film with found footage, opened the 12-hour live stream of the Unnamed Footage festival and combined the juicy elements of Patrick Brice’s film. creep with the unique twist of having a YouTube gourmet as the main character, giving the viewer glorious photos of delicious food before it seriously disturbs them.
The film follows food blogger Jeff Blake, a food “celebrity” on YouTube, who is about to get a huge break with his own show on the Food Network. For one of his latest YouTube videos, he finds out that he has a stepbrother and decides to visit him and make a food video. He meets him in an area of wooded huts and it is clear that they live very different lives. Despite this, he is trying to function and connect with his brother, Andy Baker.
The actors behind them have done extraordinarily well in conveying their characters in ways that are both charismatic and appropriately annoying. Bret Lada as Jeff Blake perfectly captured the feeling of a YouTube vlogger longing for more power and more celebrity. Dustin Fontaine as Andy Blake offers a nuanced performance as someone who is not only sinister, but also a real person, with real motivations that can be identified with the viewer.
The film sometimes has a lot of dialogue, but the viewer never gets bored because of the energy that the actors bring to the film.
The evolution of their relationship is completely familiar to those who have become uncomfortably connected with family members they have never met or seen for some time.
Personally, I also like culinary shows, especially food shows on the internet, so I found the premise centered around a food web aspirant to be great for found footage and it was a fun postponement from the same old, same old old.
The film’s dialogue captures the uncertainty of the intentions behind meeting new people and the clumsiness of those interactions, perhaps making it the most indebted to creephis brilliant script.
It doesn’t stay scary all the time. It’s much more of an ominous slow burn, but it certainly has a few sequences that will scare some people.
If you’re looking for a potentially stalker movie with a few twists and turns, Banda Andy Baker it may be for you, but if your love for found footage is more focused on supernatural events or blood, then you might want to wait for the next one.
